So, I guess I've been a lurker on IH for a while now. I'm a developer, engineer, programmer, etc. I don't have a background in sales, marketing or business administration, and I have to admit that stuff sounds intimidating. But every once in a while, I see some cool news here on IH or Hackernews or just somewhere on the Internets about successful solo developers.
That stuff really sounds interesting and rewarding.
But, I guess I'm not really much of an entrepreneur or something. I don't find myself with boat loads of ideas for new products and services. This lack of a project/hustle (side or otherwise) challenges my view that maybe I'm only interested in the solo developer "idea" but not the real world pursuit.
This might be exaggerated these days due to the pandemic and the isolation.
As a developer how have you found that "project" that "turned it on" for you? Is it mostly just dumb luck? A solution to a problem combined with a twitter following? Expertise turned into enterprise... what?
