The 3 Things This Week, 11th January 2018


How are you doing?

I am happy to bring this edition of “The 3 Things This Week”, packed with the three equally interesting stuff to you.

As you know, “The 3 Things This Week” is a free, short, curated list of useful articles, tools and other resources for building startup businesses. These 3 things would deal, in a random way, with different aspects of startup building – validation, traction, growth, funding, team, founders.

Here are this week’s 3 things!

Thing # 1How NOT following my dreams enabled me to build a startup with 3.2 million users by Aytekin Tank
