😢 How To Wreck Your Ecom Business, $10M Boostrapping Playbook, New State of The Whale & More

👋 Hello beautiful Whale Mailer!

I’m writing today’s round-up the day after our exclusive ecom get-together we threw last night in Austin to kick off SXSW - was a fantastic time.

This week we have an amazing podcast with none other than Kelly Vaughn, co-founder of seven figure agency Taproom and fast-growing Shopify app, Govalo.

Now, for our recommended readings:

First up is a stellar thread from our good friend Alex Greifeld on 5 common ways to wreck your ecommerce business.

Next, there’s a full breakdown of how Chris Meade bootstrapped CROSSNET to over $10M. Amazing read.

And to conclude our recommendations, there’s a great thread from David Rekuc on cash flow management for ecommerce businesses (a commonly misunderstood concept).

Finally, we found a free resource to help you get your UGC efforts off the ground - check out the end of the round up to see.

Thanks so much for trusting us with this valuable real estate in your inbox every week - we appreciate you :)
