3 months of nomading


It’s been 3 months of #nomading the world and #solopreneuring. Here is what I learned.

1. Communities are hard to build

Communities rely on a mass of people in order to operate well. Websites like Reddit, are useless if you have 2 users. Focus on building a product you can sell to one person.

2. Build it and they will come—is a lie

There are endless amounts of tools out there. Chances are you never heard about them. Building a profitable product, requires you to either do ads (which I don’t like), or have a brand/following (newsletter, LinkedIn, twitter, mastodon).

3. Solopreneurship is not only coding

It’s design, marketing, promotion, customer support, and sales. If you don’t want to do all that, don’t become a solopreneur.

4. Consistency wins

If you keep going, you will eventually win. Failures are inevitable, but they are temporary as long as you keep going. You only fail when you quit.

I’m sitting in an airport once again, this time it’s a domestic flight to see Mayan ruins. And I have plans to keep on going no matter how hard it is. I really don’t want to come back to a traditional workplace anymore.
