Show Notes

Hey fellow indie hackers, just wrapped up a super cool chat with Daniel, a 26-year-old entrepreneur who’s totally killing it with a $500k SaaS portfolio. He and his brother started young, sold their first company, and now they’re smartly reinvesting into more SaaS, real estate, and other assets. Daniel’s all about that cautious growth and avoiding debt, which totally resonates with me as I navigate this indie maker life. We dived into his backstory, his big company sale (hello six figures!), and how he’s handling his dough post-sale. Super insightful stuff on building a strong foundation before taking big leaps, and the importance of trust and due diligence when selling your biz. Plus, we got into the nitty-gritty of investing strategies and balancing risk with stability. So much to learn from this guy!
