At the start of the month I aimed to release a book called Career Switch To Coding, I started writing it around the 25th June and I am delighted to say that I released it on the 30th July on Product Hunt and was the 7th most popular product for the day 😀 which I'm stoked about (it was also my 34th birthday so not a bad gift to myself)
My aims for this month were to:
I hit all of those and I want to share some numbers for how the month went and some surprise extras that I threw in the mix as well.
And the thing every one cares about is:
I was aiming for 5 so a little disappointed but still delighted that 3 people choose to buy it and I know it will help them so that’s all the matters to me right now.
I start a new full time job tomorrow so the focus is on marketing and mainly content generation for now, I want to get the right traffic to the site so the focus is relevant blog posts and a weekly podcast episode. I also need to sort out purchasing power parity as many of my followers are in lower income countries.
Overall I give myself a 7 out of 10 for the month. I wish I had gotten the book done a bit quicker and not let some scope creep get the better of me but I am incredibly proud of myself for getting over fear of being on camera and making a marketing video and also doing the podcast.
If anyone is, or knows, a self taught developer who would want to tell their story on the podcast I would be delighted to interview them. I can offer a couple of links and a plugs for their social medias and projects in return. I am also keen to speak to anyone hiring developers as well, as that is an interesting perspective.
Thank you for all the encouragement in my early posts this month, it really meant the world to me 😀
