About the Host

James McKinven


Hi, I'm James
I'm a fellow indie hacker and side-project-starter and I love hearing the stories of other makers who have started their businesses while working a full-time job. Whether that's a small little earner on the side, or something that has grown into tens of thousands of ££ income that means you could quit your job.
Having started many of my own side-projects I know how hard it is to get it off the ground and generate revenue. I wouldn't have been able to make progress on any of my projects if it wasn't for the kindness and support I've received from everyone in the Indie Hackers community. Everyone has a story to tell, advice they can give and lessons to teach - I want to share them with as many people as I can.
I hope you can join me for this podcast talking to our favorite indie hackers.
