No-Code Millionaires


I love this tweet from Hrishikesh. Everything that helps you get your business idea off the ground has to be considered. There aren't tools better than others This guy coded dozens of apps, yet his bigger winner is something built on no-code. Users don't care about how you built your product.

We spoke to Hrishikesh almost 2 years ago when he was building a community of remote workers. Super interesting story!

Today everybody can build, launch and run a million dollar business with a very simple no-code stack. No need to develop expensive custom solutions, just find an idea and start a business, the possibilities are endless and these case studies prove that no-code isn't just for simple projects:

7 Pivots To Success

After a failed ecommerce venture, Danavir took advantage of that experience and started a service to handle email marketing for ecommerce companies.

The part I love the most about this story is how he made 7 different pivots until he found the right way to package his service.

Also, he has some genius strategies to get new customers, like starting a podcast so he could pitch to guests right after the interview. Today, the business makes $96K/year.

If you can help ecommerce companies grow, you can make a lot of money. These are some examples of the businesses you could start:

20 low-investment business ideas for introverts

Did you know that three of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world identify as introverts? It's true - Warren Buffet, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg all share that unique characteristic in common.

Contrary to what some may think, introverted people make for remarkable business leaders and entrepreneurs. If you're an introvert, you may really enjoy the journey of starting your own business.

So, if you've been thinking about starting a business but feel hesitant because you consider yourself an introvert, just remember:

  1. Make your strengths your competitive advantage. Especially those strengths that you enjoy. For example, maybe you like programmingwriting, or designing. Those skills can be the lynchpin of a hugely successful business.

  2. Own your weaknesses, & outsource them. If selling isn't your best attribute, find a partner that is good at it. Outsource projects that you're not comfortable with to freelancers. Don't let your weaknesses stop you from reaching your goals!\ You shouldn't feel intimidated to start your own business if you're introverted. You can start by checking these 20 business ideas for introverts that we've put together (with real life examples).

We started a $3M/year business in college

Nik and Garret had an idea when they were in college: gummy sweets that are vitamin supplements.

As you'd expect, their journey was a rollercoaster. After coming up with the idea, they pitched it around and raised a bunch of money. Of course, they totally bombed the launch. This is an awesome story on how they bounced back from 1-2 orders per week to selling $250K of their product every month.

College students have a unique advantage because they can work with very little and have nothing to lose. Here's how you can think more like a college student...
