We’re shutting down nugget

nugget-is-dead.-long-live-social-bee-1

We started nugget on a journey of 10.000 books, almost 2 years ago. We got to about 150 of those, and we now have to stop.

nugget is a great product, but a bad business.

We failed to keep you, our beloved users, engaged within the app, so our retention numbers and in turn the monetization of the app are bad.

We’re now focusing on SocialBee.io – a tool we created to get more leads from social media (initially) for nugget, that we then turned into a stand alone product.

We’ll still leave the website and the apps up, for a while.

You can read more about the decision to stop working on nugget and to focus on SocialBee here.

So what’s next?

  • If you’d like to have a call with me, and find out more about SocialBee, schedule a call here.
  • If you’re interested in taking nugget over (we’re looking into different options), email me at ovi [at] ovi [dot] co

Thanks for the ride,

Ovi & the nugget team.

10 things I’ve learned from meeting James Altucher

James Altucher Q-A London Team

This week I’ve been in London at the event An Evening With James Altucher where I was part of the team who put together this large event for the Choose Yourself community.

I’ve also been fortunate enough to talk with him about nugget and give him a sneak peek. James loved nugget and gave me some really good advice that we’re going to implement in the time to come. He really is an idea machine.

The interactions with him made me write this post. So, here I go: Continue Reading…

How I got the founder of PayPal, James Altucher and Guy Kawasaki to be my mentors.

Entrepreneurship can be a hard and lonely game. You have many different alternatives and options to grow your business, but most of them won’t work. You won’t know on which to focus and you don’t know what you don’t know.

This is why it’s crucial to have a group of mentors who can guide your way – so you can learn from their previous experiences – and help you reach new heights.

Building the plane on the way down – Our journey so far

Entrepreneurship - Jumping off a cliff and building the plane on the way down
I used to think and rethink things. To plan and analyse. Until I found why it would not work! And if I waited long enough, I always did.

Not with nugget.

As different small streams come together to form the Nile (or in my neck of the woods, the Danube) so is the genesis of nugget.
A bunch of smaller ideas, feelings and revelations that came together into the vision of an app that gives you bite sized knowledge at your fingertip, whenever you have a moment to spare.

So what happened this time? Instead of Continue Reading…
