It is my first post here 🐣.
I've been reading a lot of stories from people in the IndieHackers community. I found them inspiring and exciting ✨, and after reading, I was encouraged to write my first post here.
I'm Mauro Giustozzi, 32 years old, and I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina 🧉.
Maker 'NoCode', Growth Designer and digital nomad.
I have survived 7.1 magnitude earthquake 🌋, and in I was in jail for arguing with an airport official 👮♀️ 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 (🤦🏻♂️ stupid I was, I know).
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 💵.
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.
Currently, I am beginning to develop an idea, it will be for the Hispanic market, (people who speak Spanish 🇪🇸, report hahaha).
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.
👨🏻🔧 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.
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 💫.
I still do not have the defined idea, I am very open about what it could be... from the "super original" idea of 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 💰. Also, creators we could empower ourselves a lot by developing business with each other 🤝.
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 😍.
Apologies for my bad English 🥸.
Go IndieHackers 🚀🚀🚀!
