“Selling the house gave me a better version of myself. That’s my safety. Industry knowledge is worth more to me than a house.” Renee was willing to break away from traditional thinking to fuel her vision. What’s holding you back from learning more in your field? Maybe it’s time to say no to something normal (e.g., a house) to realize a dream.
Attention equals money. Renee knew she had found product-market fit when users were spending a half hour a day in her app. What can you do to get users to spend more time on your platform (using your service or product)? How can you add value to increase users’ time-in-app or time-on-site?
What can you do that will give you a sense of achievement and self-esteem? For Renee, it was coding. Find something you’re good at and become even better. Use it to help people (e.g., friends stuck on a project) and you may find a happier version of yourself.
