In this video, David Heinemeier Hansson, co-founder of 37signals, talks about how build a sustainable on-line business. 37signals builds Basecamp, a successful online project management tool which, incidentally, is what we use for our own projects.
Here’s a summary for you:
- Don’t be afraid to charge for your product.
- Solve a simple problem a little bit better than the other guys.
- Aim your product to small businesses with a niche need.
- Side-businesses are really not that bad.
- Great businesses aren’t built over-night so don’t be in such a hurry.
