The Minimalist Entrepreneur

How Great Founders Do More with Less

Sahil Lavingia,

The Minimalist Entrepreneur: How Great Founders Do More with Less
 
 
“Pay attention.”—Jason Fried

A revolutionary roadmap for building startups that go the distance

 
Now more than ever, you don’t need a fancy office, Ivy League degree, or millions of dollars in venture capital to launch a business that matters for the communities you care most about. Software, the internet, and remote work have made it possible for entrepreneurs to start for free, make a customer of anyone, and grow a profitable, sustainable company from anywhere. 

Packed with hard-won, battle-tested lessons from Lavingia’s own journey of building Gumroad, a platform for creators to sell their work, The Minimalist Entrepreneur teaches founders how to:
 
  •  start then learn
  •  build a community, then solve a problem for them
  •  charge for something even before you’ve built anything
  •  avoid running out of money and, more importantly, energy
  •  run a tight ship amid the rise of the gig economy and remote work
  •  own a business without it owning you back.
 
The Minimalist Entrepreneur is the manifesto for a new generation of founders who would rather build great companies than big ones. This is essential knowledge for every founder aspiring to build a business worth building.
