He is helping me get back into coding again, after 3 years of being inactive.
Wondering why I want to start coding again as a designer?
We do 2x sessions of 4 hours. That's it.
We have a goal of launching a micro-SaaS by spending a small amount of time, without any huge growth goals.
He is the developer, and I am the designer.
We realized that designing only is not enough in terms of contribution to the product. We are a small team with a limited amount of time we can invest.
If I become able to contribute into the UI development we can move 3 times faster. I can implement my designs without having to go through him and he can just review my code and send me his design feedback.
This way he can focus more on the functionality-side of the code, and together we can focus on shipping faster and better as a team.
Finally being able to code again, will allow me to build more advanced prototypes with https://framer.com/ and we will be able to test and validate ideas even faster!
It's an investment that will pay off for sure.
Here is my biggest learning and advice to you
Coaching is one of the most powerful tools you can use to grow faster as a solo founder. I pay @AlexLlullTW every month to coach me on content creation and community development, cause I've no clue how to do marketing. It's something I started learning 10 months ago.
This is my biggest take-away for you. Invest into learning and pay or help others to help you back.
Money transformed into knowledge is imho something that can never go wrong.
Your brain is your biggest asset. The more you invest into it the bigger return you will have! 🙂
