Solocity - community of solo founders sharing ways to improve their mental health

Hey everyone. Last year, I was (thankfully) fired from my job and decided to go full time on my side project. I've been doing 4 figures MRR which allows me to live well enough.

Thing is, back then I thought to myself "Great! now I can put everything into my project and improve it massively", but I found that when it was "just a side project" it was easier for me to work on it than it is now. The less I work on it the more pressure I feel to work on it which in turns makes me work on it less.

Luckily for me (or not?), it's providing me with passive income, but I have this nagging feeling that 'someone else would have done so much better than me'.

When I had a co-founder on my last startup this burden was shared and also I had someone to be accountable to. Now I'm kinda lost in that regard and I'm doing everything I can to stay busy on other things and not my main source of income.

When I searched for a place to talk about this (and many other issues) I couldn't find one. I'm trying to see if more people need such a place, so if you do, you can visit https://solocity.net and sign up. It's not a product or anything just trying to see if there's a place for a community of solo founders that are interested in helping each other out.

Feel free to share your thoughts.
