Never Stop [44/365]

No time to work on my project today. But it does not mean I will stop. I will keep writing my daily post. I will get back to improving my landing page for the 365 days of side project. I will get back to outreach. I will get back to design. As long as I get back to it, progress will be made.

Improving My Landing Page [43/365]

Yesterday, I finished a first version of the landing page for the 365 days of side-project challenge. The idea is to have a method that will help you develop the habit of working on your side project every single day.

They read books, tutorials, and watch videos, but getting started can be quite hard because you have to choose what you would be doing without knowing if that is the right thing. Read more

Creating the simplest product [40/365]

5 days ago, I was planting my flag in a topic which I don’t know a lot about. Today, I read this post which introduced me to a very logical approach to getting started step by step. So I’m changing my mind again because right now, I don’t need to be doing 25 things in parallel. I need to ship. I need a first client. This approach of starting by creating a small-ish product that you only sell once seems like a simple way to get started and gain some experience and get my first client. Read more
