- Make sure you have more ideas than talent.
- Hate the big publishers and anything mainstream.

- Whine about scarcity of funding and lack of government handouts.
- When you eventually make "something", whine about the lack of sales.
- Whine about about the App Store being full of shovel-ware.
- Watch other developers make money. Call them sell-outs. They don't deserve the "Indie" badge.
- Rinse and Repeat.
