Building and marketing your own startup leads to numerous new skills learned.
I started my career doing marketing in the startup world and moved my way into corporate. During my corporate career, I started building my own startup projects on the side and have leared a lot of new skills through the process, like web app development, SEO, influencer marketing, and so on.
I'm curious if anyone here has translated their self-taught skills from personal startup work into consulting or full-time work. If so, how did you go about it?
I feel like a lot of us (myself at least) spend countless hours self-learning to support personal projects that have intentions of profit and scale, but don't always think about how these new skills can also lead to professional income.
With a rapidly changing economy, having wider professional options with new skills can be a life-saver.
