Aloha, Indie Hackers Community ๐Ÿดโ€โ˜ ๏ธ

It is my first post here ๐Ÿฃ.

I've been reading a lot of stories from people in the IndieHackers community. I found them inspiring and exciting โœจ, and after reading, I was encouraged to write my first post here.

๐Ÿ‘‹ Presentation

I'm Mauro Giustozzi, 32 years old, and I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina ๐Ÿง‰.

Maker 'NoCode', Growth Designer and digital nomad.

I have survived 7.1 magnitude earthquake ๐ŸŒ‹, and in I was in jail for arguing with an airport official ๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™€๏ธ since "I could not work in this Country" and I tried to explain that I was a digital nomad and could work where I wanted (๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ stupid I was, I know).

๐Ÿ„โ€โ™‚๏ธ Background

Mauro Kid
I've been a tech geek for as long as I can remember. As a child until my adolescence, I was a gamer. Then I started looking for a way to monetize ๐Ÿ’ต.

At 17, I dropped out of high school to work in a family small furniture store. I left after 3 months and started my first project to sell furniture online, in 2006 in Argentina, and you know what? It was a success. In 2006/07 in Argentina, there were already many users on the internet with the intention of buying, but almost no player selling.

At age 24 my company had sales in 7 figures a year, I got out for free, and I went to travel without return date around the Latin America.

๐Ÿ“ Now

Currently, I am beginning to develop an idea, it will be for the Hispanic market, (people who speak Spanish ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ, report hahaha).
Mauro Big
I want to create a platform for creators of digital products, where maaaybe provide education, mentoring and community.

Excuse me if I sound like a sucker: My experience made me very effective in creating digital products that work.

And on the other hand, I love helping people create digital products.

๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ”ง The problem I see is that there are very good intentions or problems to solve, with very bad products/solutions, and worse ways to create community and communicate the solution.

๐ŸŒ๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ Next

In the past I have founded startups, I have already been a freelancer, I have already been a backpacker, now I want to create a startup whose mission is to help entrepreneurs create effective digital products.

Feel that this community vibrates in the same tune ๐Ÿ’ซ.

I still do not have the defined idea, I am very open about what it could be... from the "super original" idea of โ€‹โ€‹making a product similar to IndieHackers, or being a typical product of "Community + courses + mentoring" like so many that exist today.

I think that this project in the future may even have its own investment fund for makers... or better yet, that we can invest among creators ๐Ÿ’ฐ. Also, creators we could empower ourselves a lot by developing business with each other ๐Ÿค.

Reinvent the wheel? Copy-cat? I don't know yet, but reading IndieHackers stories, surely helps me.

Thank you all for sharing and collaborate in this beautiful community ๐Ÿ˜.

Apologies for my bad English ๐Ÿฅธ.

Go IndieHackers ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿš€๐Ÿš€!

Best,
