Standing Out in a Sea of Noise

Standing Out in a Sea of Noise
By Ian Wootten • Issue #2 • View online
Welcome to the second issue of “Shipping Stuff”. As I write this, it is a grey and rainy morning outside so I hope this retrospective over the past fortnight brightens your day a little. I’ve spent a bit of time this week writing a script in order to better brand my blog content when posted to social networks.
Firstly, thank you so much for being one of my first subscribers. If you have any comments or link suggestions, please respond to this email or let me know on twitter. I’m also hoping to get into producing some new videos for my youtube channel soon as lockdown eases. If you have any ideas for videos, also let me know. Honestly at this point, I’d really love to hear from you for any reason.

Nathan Barry is a well known name in the world of bootstrapped businesses. He’s the founder of Convertkit, a successful email marketing business currently making $81k monthly recurring revenue (MRR) with 58 staff around the world.
This 2013 video from Microconf is a welcome reminder just how far he has come in the last 8 years at a point when he was struggling to reach $5k MRR.
