Ask IH: What are the 3 best choices you made in 2020?

My top 3 are:

  • Leave my daily job as CEO of Leva.io
  • Join Twitter and IndieHackers (and follow those 150 super accounts that inspire me every day)
  • Join https://nugget.one by Justin Vincent

Ops, I've got a fourth one:

  1. 3
    • Joined Coulf and met @Dinakar!
    • Went back to Twitter and made new friends!
    • Learn(ing) Laravel
    • Bonus point: Rediscovered Notion, and fell in love with it.
    1. 2

      I haven't heard about Coulf before, I'll take a look thanks!

      1. 2

        I hadn't heard about Nugget either, so, the thanks is mutual :)

  2. 2
    • Accept full time job offer at my current employer
    • Make the choice to work on my passion project (Primcloud)
    • Ask my co-founder to join me as co-founder
  3. 2
    • Hired someone to redo my company's website. I knew my website was shit, but it just never felt like a priority and it finally took someone reaching out to me offering to do it. Afterwards, I saw a noticeable bump in leads and now have a website I'm not embarrassed of - totally worth $300.
    • Began to learn web to build my first 2 apps for the Shopify app store (previously I only did Android / Java)
    • After chatting with a more experienced dev, realized you could set up a local dev environment for Google Cloud Functions; that combined with getting a paid ngrok account increased my productivity 10x
  4. 2
    • Taking social distancing and infection reduction protocols seriously. Managing to avoid contracting (and spreading) COVID-19 overwhelms everything else.
    • Leaving my job when it was no longer worth the money.
    • Having my girlfriend move in when the pandemic started.
  5. 2
    • Leave my full-time job as developer
    • Star working on new side projects (full-time on my own company: https://morflax.com)
    • Join Twitter, ProductHunt makers and IndieHackers
  6. 2
    1. started a mastermind/accountability podcast on Reactor.am. It's really helped me recognize some recurring blind spots and issues I've had related to work. It's also helped be a bit better about exercise and eating habits.
    2. doubled down on technical learning, going through 7 full technical ebooks and pieces of many more.
    3. didn't push myself too much on the actual coding / work side of things. It's helped me finally get to the point where my wrist injuries are 90% healed and I'm capable of working full time.
  7. 2

    I have been online in this year than I've been in my entire life.

    • Met a lot of interesting people. I even got here after a mention from an incredible guy ;)
    • Ventured into join.coulf.com
    • Grew my personal Twitter handle to 100+ Like, from 2014 to 3 months back it was at 65ish in a little over 2 months, it's at 181 today, so amazing!
    • Went beyond networking to growing relationships
    • Got the 1st and 4th sale for typeyourname.com
    • Got our SaaS off the ground

    Okay, I see I have exceeded the 3 points rule but this year was just so amazing for me.

  8. 2
    • start writing a blog
    • join Twitter and gain some followers
    • learn Node.js to become fullstack developer

    What are your thoughts on nugget.one so far?

    1. 1

      Uh it's awesome, I've been through the course and I learnt a lot of business fundamentals I was missing. And @justinvincent is a great coach and mentor, always available to provide clever feedback on your project on the Slack group.
