Why I started Public Lab

I made a lot of mistakes when I ran my last startup. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
When I made up my mind to go from being a venture-backed startup founder to a bootstrapped founder, I started sharing these on my blog publicly: failures, lessons learned, and how I was building new products.
Then my Twitter followers, newsletter subscribers, and website visitors all began to increase! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ People seemed to resonate with what I write. That's when I first ...
Realized the power and potential of Building in Public!
It was refreshing to know that I don't have to only create the perfect marketing stories to get people to listen to me.
I love being myself and sharing what I'm experiencing.
As a builder, this new approach of telling my stories to grow an engaging audience is 100x better than doing sales outreach and buying ads!
But I was only able to get over my fear and develop this voice after doing it over and over again. I've had so many people tell me about their fear to talk about themselves in public. It is difficult for them to show vulnerability. And they're also intimidated that people might judge them.
That's when I thought - what if there is a community that puts people together and help them be confident about having their own voice on the Internet? That's where the idea ๐Ÿ’ก of Public Lab came from.
The goal here is simple. This is where ...
Entrepreneurs come together to find their authentic and transparent voice and build an engaging audience.
