You mentioned "we're not 'competing' with anyone. We're 100% bootstrapped". I love this mindset. Could you elaborate more on this and how you arrived at this model?

I think it's really easy for beginners to think they are competing with everybody for attention and feel bad because so many people are putting out great content.

I was chatting with Joe Eames about this, and his take was "the internet is huge. Even if you only have 1% of the market, you're set". My takeaway was that there is a giant pie and plenty of room for quality educators.

Any thoughts on this?
