Things you don't need to launch your product: a great name, a one-word domain, a beautiful logo, an ever better website, brilliant copy, perfect code, custom illustrations, shiny buttons, optimized CSS… Things you do need: a product that solves a problem for someone. That's it.

2

You will be embarrassed of what you ship after a weekend. You will be embarrassed of what you ship after nine years. Ship.

3

Don’t launch something too pretty. It may lead you to thinking you have product-market fit but you may actually just have design-designers fit.

4

If you want to grow a thick skin, ship anything at all.

5

You'll learn more from one launch than a thousand blog posts.

6

"Early and often" has been a very effective mantra for me… Ship code early and often. Communicate early and often. Ask for feedback early and often. Share your best ideas early and often. If you're not already, consider doing things earlier and more often!

7

I don't like coding that much. I don't like designing that much. I don't like product management that much. But I *love* having shipped a product people love.

8

Shipments speak louder than words.

9

I love shipping code. And now that we're profitable instead of growth-crazed, it's nice to not feel guilty for doing it.
