This is very insightful and encouraging, Jonathan.

Hey David, thanks for the response, I appreciate it. I’ve read a good bit on the UBI idea you’ve proposed here. In fact, Medium has some great articles about it in this publication:

That said, this is a larger conversation and effort to be taken up at state and federal levels, in my humble opinion.

I understand your need for a minimum income, but what I would encourage in a more immediate opportunity for you personally would be to focus on building clients on the side based on your experience in software development. When you have what would be enough of a basic income, make the leap and continue building. I know it’s easier said than done, but it is doable, as evidenced by much of the community in our own backyard of Phoenix.

All the best in your continued pursuits, and I hope to see you around the community very soon!
