EP14: I want candy
Best kick in the pants yet!
Also - kids or no kids?
This week's project
The inspiration for this project came in August, after I launched my course. The course platform I was using was expensive. I was being charged $130 / month + 4% of course sales + transaction fees! Since August I've had to pay $1,288.00 to that service. If I'd used Productify, I would have paid only $39. ;)
What I really wanted was to host my course myself on WordPress, but sell it using Gumroad.
When I shared the idea with Carl Alexander he had an idea of how he could build it (without using a SaaS backend). So we did!

We shipped it!
