Read the last 5 by 5 by 5

At the beginning of May I started writing down 10 ideas a day before realizing halfway through the month that they were just ideas, not solutions. From there I started to write down 5 problems and 5 opportunities for the future.

Now I post 5 ideas, 5 problems and 5 opportunities daily because what’s the use in keeping them to myself with no criticism?


  1. Series of articles focusing on the future — new markets, jobs, technology, problems and opportunity.
  2. Series of articles focusing on bootstrapping a product. Something that brings innovation to the “Build and MVP in a month” model.
  3. Desk with a built in, cooled drink/bottle holder.
  4. Curated freelancing leads- talk with potential clients so that they get the best quality freelancer.
  5. Innovate how businesses hire people.


  1. The startup bubble is just that- startups. Few founders have the vision to run a business that will be there in 10 or even 5 years time.
  2. How the web currently runs- compatibility, JS frameworks, responsive layout, work arounds for browsers that have JS disabled should all be problems we don’t have.
  3. Building a product that has a fucking market.
  4. Social media is becoming outdated for marketing with a low budget.
  5. Skills vs Opportunities (more from John Saddington’s post)


  1. Disrupting Agriculture with new technology- automated seed planting, cheap solutions to monitoring key metrics in growth for plants/food, predictive season mapping (cold snaps, heat waves etc.)
  2. Disrupting Shopping Centers- AR guides, interactive advertisements, information about all products in stores found in an app, Uber for grocery shopping.
  3. Electrical engineers will be the next software developers.
  4. Teaching people how to create products with code instead of just teaching them to code. Being able to just “code” won’t be special in the future.
  5. Resume help for students graduating in IT.

If you found some of these cool or accurate, give me a heart ❤
