This is the longest I’ve gone without posting an Entrepreneurship Journal entry in a while. The last one was almost three months ago.
I’m happy to report that I’ve continued to stick with the same focus, Ruby testing, and I still feel good about it.
As I mentioned in my last post, I finally enrolled in 30×500. It was 30×500 that helped me arrive at my focus of Ruby testing.
At one point I think I asked Amy and Alex in 30×500 how many subscribers I should have before launching my first product. I think had around 225 subscribers at the time. I was wondering whether I should work on getting more subscribers or if I should launch a product to my existing subscribers. The answer I got was that a list my size is big enough to launch a product to. The advice was to launch a tiny product.
So that’s what I’ve been working on. For the last couple weeks I’ve been working on an “Intro to Ruby” course. My intention is for the course to be tiny in scope and for the price to be relatively low.
Also since last time I wrote, I started a podcast called The Ruby Testing Podcast. According to the stats I’ve gotten 131 downloads so far. Seems good, I guess. So far I’ve interviewed two guests. I have one more interview scheduled for July. I’m holding off on scheduling anything more right now because I’m teaching a class through mid-July.
My near-term plans are to finish the course as quickly as possible and then launch it. After that I plan to work on getting more subscribers, improve the course, and sell the course for a higher price. I plan to pretty much repeat that process indefinitely.
