The Minimalist Entrepreneur
How Great Founders Do More with Less
“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.
