Working towards life-changing outcomes as an indie hacker - Colleen Schnettler, HelloQuery

<p>In this episode Iā€™m joined by Colleen Schnettler, which a lot of you would have heard from through her <a href="">Software Social podcast</a> she co-hosts with Michele Hansen. Colleen has been on quite the journey over the past few years, going from years of contracting to launching her first product, <a href="">Simple File Upload</a>, then getting a large contracting gig with Hammerstone, landing a separate full-time job to then quit 3 weeks later to rejoin that <a href="">Hammerstone</a> as a co-founder. Now Colleen is working on a product called <a href="">HelloQuery</a>, a reporting tool for SQL queries which has been accepted into a recent TinySeed batch.</p><p><strong>What we covered:</strong></p><ul><li>00:00 Intro</li><li>02:03 Why start the Software Social podcast?</li><li>02:59 Why start building products</li><li>04:04 Colleen's first product: Simple File Upload</li><li>05:07 Why they stopped the podcast</li><li>06:37 Joining Hammerstone</li><li>08:50 Being a solo founder</li><li>10:16 Hello Query</li><li>11:47 Closing down a successful product</li><li>13:50 Reccos</li></ul><p><strong>Reccomendations</strong></p><ul><li>Book: <a href=""><strong>The Mom Test</strong></a></li><li>Podcast: <a href=""><strong>Boostrapped Web</strong></a></li><li>Indie Hacker: <a href=""><strong>Corey Haines</strong></a></li></ul><p><strong>Follow Colleen</strong></p><ul><li><a href="">Twitter</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> šŸ™</strong></p><p><em>EmailOctopus is an independently owned email marketing platform, built to support other small growing businesses.
