  • Pros: 

    Great place to learn about stories behind e-comm startups, inspiring to hear how open people are about how their failures lead to success


    Only a few new interviews a week - I wish there were more!

    As an aspiring entrepreneur, my biggest challenge is finding the courage to start something I believe in and share it with the public. It's encouraging to see so many people who have similar backgrounds to mine who have taken the leap to creating and selling their own products.

Hey PH! 👋 I've been working on Starter Story for the past couple months. I just finished up my 17th interview! Hugely inspired by @csallen and Indie Hackers, I wanted to create a similar resource for entrepreneurs in the e-commerce space. It has been such a fun experience to do these interviews & share the stories. Would love any feedback that the PH community has on how to improve the site and the interviews. (Thanks for hunting me @_jacksmith)

@thepatwalls Congrats on the launch! Saw your Reddit comment. Love the simplicity of your webdesign! What is your webdesign stack, if I may ask? Thanks!

@bagindatirtadji Thanks! I built this with the create-react-app by Facebook and I host it on Netlify. I plan to move to using a CMS soon for the content, but I started by just hacking it together with React. Anyone have any recommendations?
