‘Pay attention’ – Jason Fried, founder and CEO of Basecamp, bestselling author of ReWork

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.
