Building a financial engine for your indie business - Justin Jackson

<p>In this episode I have a returning guest, someone who is a keystone of the bootstrapping community, it’s Justin Jackson, co-founder of Transistor, MegaMaker and more. Today we have an unstructured but very useful chat about building a financial engine for your business. This is a topic that has come up countless times in my indie journey and I think it’s something that a lot of indie businesses don’t address as early and seriously as they should. There a ton of actionable tips in this conversation about how to manage your finances, building a solid, profitable business and what to do when things aren’t going well.</p><p><strong>Get the extended episode here: </strong><a href=""><strong></strong></a></p><p><strong>Timestamps</strong></p><ul> <li>00:00 Intro</li> <li>01:45 James shocked by tax</li> <li>02:31 Profit first</li> <li>06:51 Building a financial engine</li> <li>09:40 Things falling apart with depression</li> <li>11:00 Desperation affects creativity</li> <li>11:49 How to build your financial engine</li> </ul><p><strong>Recommendations (from prev ep)</strong></p><ul> <li>Book: <a href=""><strong>Life Profitability</strong></a> </li> <li>Podcast: <a href=""><strong>Software Social</strong></a> </li> <li>Indie Hacker: <a href=""><strong>Derek Sivers</strong></a> </li> </ul><p><strong>Follow Justin</strong></p><ul> <li><a href="">Twitter</a></li> <li><a href="">Blog</a></li> </ul><p><strong>My links</strong></p><ul> <li><a href="">Twitter</a></li> <li><a href="">Indie Bites Twitter</a></li> <li><a href="">Indie Bites YouTube</a></li> <li><a href="">Join the membership</a></li> <li><a href="">Personal Website</a></li> <li><a href="">2 Hour Podcast Course</a></li> <li> <a href="">PodPanda</a> (hire me to edit your podcast)</li> <li><a href="">This Indie Life Podcast</a></li> </ul><p><strong>Sponsor - </strong><a href=""><strong>EmailOctopus</strong></a><strong> 🐙</strong></p><p><em>EmailOctopus is an independently owned email marketing platform, built to support other small growing businesses.
