“Pay attention.”—Jason Fried

A revolutionary roadmap for building startups that go the distance

Cracks are forming in the myth of the VC-funded, IPO-driven billion-dollar company. They’re unprofitable, unethical, and unsustainable—so why bother chasing unicorns? The Minimalist Entrepreneur is the manifesto for a new generation of founders who would rather build great companies than big ones.
Packed with hard-won, battle-tested lessons from Lavingia’s own journey of building Gumroad, The Minimalist Entrepreneur teaches founders how to start from anywhere to build any kind of software-enabled business. You will learn how to:
   resist investments that set you up to fail
   run a tight ship amid the rise of the gig economy and remote work
   develop and release products without failing fast or often
   get to profitability and stay there.
The Minimalist Entrepreneur offers essential knowledge for every founder aspiring to build a business worth building.
