This week's catches🎣
Here are some SaaS products, apps and extensions that I discovered this week.


thePenTool is a library of free and premium design assets for all kinds of designers that allow them to save time on all the tedious aspects of design


landing page
EazyCSS is a browser extension that allows you to change any website design visually and get your changes in CSS code.


Orgpad is a mind map builder that allows you to add a network of interconnected ideas so that they can stay right in front of you to give you a visual "bigger picture".


Super is a tool for Notion that allows you to add custom domains and typography, integrate analytics and customise your social meta tags. 


Templatium helps you to speed up development of your next saas project by providing you with pre built ui components and an admin dashboard template.

My picks of dope newsletters and communities for this week.

Podcast of the week🎙️

I listen to a lot of podcasts, and I choose one or two with the most value for my audience.
This week's podcast(s) of the week goes to ;

Startups For The rest Of Us where they talk to Will Schroter about the importance of output vs. hours, being specific about the kind of things you don’t want to do in life, choosing venture capital, and much more. Listen here 

Blog posts/Articles 📚

There is a lot of crap on the internet, so I rifle through it and pick a out gem or two that I found this week.
Holy heck, this is hard. I came across this Indie Hackers post and it gives a reality that what we do as makers and builders isn't easy. It takes a lot of time and effort and many sleepless nights to build the things that we do. Read here
Knowledge base/Resources 💡
Resources and knowledge that helps you grow and get smarter.
Marketing for Engineers - This is a really great GitHub repository with a huge collection of resources that can teach devs and founders who are not necessarily marketing savvy, the "ins and outs" of marketing and growth.

As somebody who has been in the marketing industry for quite some  time now, I approve of this collection to anybody that wants to teach themselves marketing. Check it out here
That's all for this week, I'll be back next week, same time, same place!
