Welcome, introduce yourself! (Week of Jul 19th)

Rosie Sherry @rosiesherry

Rosie here -- the Indie Hackers community manager. Welcome! 👋

This short guide is meant to help you get the most out of Indie Hackers.

First, introduce yourself!

Indie Hackers is a community of people helping each other build profitable businesses and side projects. The key word here is "community." Don't be shy!

For starters, take a second to introduce yourself and share your goals in the comments below. 👇

Just say a few words about who you are, why you're here, and what you hope to accomplish or learn in 2020.

Take a moment to say hello to someone else as well!

Dive into learning.

We've interviewed hundreds of successful indie hackers. I recommend reading a few of their stories. It's a great way to get an overview of what's possible.

@csallen also puts out podcast episodes if reading isn't your thing!

Next, get started!

There's no time like the present. Check out the "Start Here" page for a list of practical steps and articles that can help you take action.

Not only will it help you get started, but it should also introduce you to some of the best parts of the Indie Hackers community.

This is just the tip of the iceberg! If you're ever feeling lost or confused, post in the Meta group or tag me (@rosiesherry) in any comment or post.

Don't forget to introduce yourself and say hi to someone else below! 🤗

    Hello Everyone,

    I'm Toheeb. From Nigeria. I'm working on getting my head straight and building things

    1. 1
      1. 2

        Oh. I made a typo. Writing -> Working.

        Anyways, your question still stands.. How?

        I noticed there's a wide gap between how much I learn and little I do. Hence, my resolution is to build (products), and share my knowledge through blogging and courses.

        1. 1

          Do you plan to monetise these blogs, I'm thinking of starting something similar, how are you starting off?

          1. 1

            The blog will be available for all. No restrictions. No Obstructive Ads (coil or carbon ads)

            My plan is to write detailed overview of a topic so it's easier for the reader to understand how things are connected. They can then further down on their own or buy my course.

            The traction I get from an overview is a metric for me to decide if I should make a course. The metrics will be social shares, comments, subscribers, likes.

            I'm starting by August 1. Designing and developing my blog which is part of my brand. Something minimalistic and functional (and I'll be making a course out of it, detailing the setup, goals, with future updates on how I'm transitioning the blog into a brand).

            Starting from scratch, no followers, blank canvas. I think it'll be fun!

            Let me chip in.. my plan is to write at least once in a month, maximum of 3. Hopefully, the flexibility will give me room to focus on side projects and research.

  8. 2

    Kia Ora IH, I’m Ersin from New Zealand. This community is inspiring and I’m here to watch you all grow!

    Hi everyone,
    I'm sathish from india and i'm working as web developer. Love to learn new things

  10. 2

    Hi everyone,
    I'm Renan Añez from Bolivia, I'm currently in the US, specifically in Austin TX, I've been here for the last month and a half. I'm a solo-founder of a B2B Startup that is constituted in Florida. Still in the early stage, I've already made some demos of my solution but now I'm starting to work on my MVP.
    It has took me and is taking me time because I wasn't a programmer at the beginning but I already was an Engineer.

    Glad to have found this community.

  11. 2

    What's up everybody!
    My name is Eshan and I am in the process of creating a new online business called "Khaos Kreatives".

    Over the years I have worked with many amazing Creatives in companies such as Blue Man Group and Cirque Du Soleil, and one thing I noticed is that most of them usually had a side project of their own but somehow had difficulty getting it off the ground.... this insight provided the "seed idea" for KHAOS KREATIVES where I aim to help Creatives from all fields (authors, designer, musicians, directors etc...) get their own personal projects off the ground so they can stop working for others and hopefully be the boss of their own creative company one day :)

    Just discovered Indie Hackers and instantly felt like it could be a place I want to hang out.... looking forward to meeting like-mided Creatives out there and exchaning ideas

  12. 2

    Hi everyone,

    I'm Alex from France. I will soon graduate in Ml/AI and I have many ideas of projects to develop. The one I am currently working on relates to the fact that we have way too many choices in our life. Facing those, we can end up paralyzed. This idea is well developed in The paradox of choice by Barry Schwartz.

    My idea is to make it easier to choose with a recommender system presenting things in a tinder style. I am starting to develop it for books with graph databases. If you are interested to learn more about the project or would like to help, feel free to reach me.

    Have a good day.


  13. 2

    Hey everyone,

    I'm Jeremy from NJ! My day job is being a full-time software engineer at one of the cloud providers.

    I've joined this channel to get more insight and advice on how to achieve a few of my goals:

    • create a SaaS or "micro" SaaS by myself
    • being motivated enough to do weekly blogging
    • creating a youtube channel with weekly content

    I hope to achieve 1 or 2 of the above goals this year, all while juggling being an employee and father! (:

    Bonjour indiehackers,
    My name is Egide and i live in the south of Belgium. Although this is my first time introducing myself, l have been consuming the site's content for two months already (especially the interviews). My goal is to earn at least 2000€/month by the end of the year through my blog. I write guides, reviews and tutorials about wordpress tools in french. I'm looking forward to making your acquaintance.

  17. 1

    Hi All,
    I'm anurag and I would like to build something of my own.

  18. 1

    Hi ,
    I'm Vlad , from the Netherlands. Currently a DevOps, but being developing for the past couple years. So, being working on many different projects lately, this is the first time I finally got some traction. Using both startupschool, pioneer.app and now the indiehackers to get feedback and tailor the product to a good market fit

    Project :
    A developer tool that makes it quick to search and re-use command-line commands http://we-reuse.nl

    It is still early days, as I started working on this 4 weeks ago. Had to pivot a lot, as I started from Building chrome extension, though it was not approved. So, had to do a web app to start collecting the feedback, until I am approved.

    I plan to add the possibility to do better filtering, have a search in descriptions, grouping, taggging. Also, allow saving your own commands and organize them in collections + share with peers
    At some point, also gonna expose the API ,so software developers & providers can submit commands on their own.

    I find it too slow to go through hundreds tech blogs..articles...git..searching through proper commands. And often, those are even the same articles. Also tons of local files with commands...docs..etc

    What do you think? Is there a chance this can possibly make your life easier?

    • I stumbled upon the IndieHacker community because of @csallen podcasts. Especially, the one with PieterLievers.

    • I am good at Video Processing, Video Encoding, and anything related to Multimedia processing. I have couple of ideas around this.

    Hey Indie Hackers,

    I'm Solomon from London, 50% of creative freelancers in the UK lost 100% of their paid work due to the pandemic!. This is catastrophic for so many people, In response I have founded Ikigai Journal: a curated newsletter of funding opportunities for creatives and social impact founders.

    Feel free ton share it with your creative friends you may just make their year a whole lot better.

    Im here to learn how to a better job of spreading the word about funding opportunities than the abysmal attempts of the funding organisations.

    I also plan to move to Costa Rica with my partner in January so I would like to learn how to make an income from my newsletter that affords me the freedom to explore, stay zen, get closer to nature , make documentaries and eat freshly picked mango for breakfast.

    Always happy to listen and share what I have learnt.

    And I would love your feedback about the Ikigai Journal

    Hi all,

    I'm Bart and I'm a business oriented IT project manager in Belgium, 53 and addicted to learning.
    Quite recently, somewhere mid last year, I got intrigued by crypto and Bitcoin. I has been a roller coaster of information overload. I read a few books and listened to podcasts about economics, money, history, privacy, freedom, security, linux, cryptography.... Just way too much to process, but extremely interesting and to my mind very important topics for future years/generations to come.

    It would be my dream if I could study and write about those topics and share my knowledge and experiences in the crypto/bitcoin space. So my idea is to start a website and a course about the meaning of crypto and bitcoin, and position it in a broader economic and social context.

    I've a vague path in mind but I've been too reluctant to get started up till now.
    Perhaps this community can challenge me and push me forward to get a profitable side project off the ground.

    Greetings, Bart

    Hi there, I am Deniz and I have been working as an ASO expert for more than 3 years. But now I am switching profession to become an app developer. I got tired making other apps visible :P Now it is my turn.

    But first things first, my friend published his first app and I think it's dope (no bias haha). It's called Plantiary which offers daily or hourly reminders for your plant caring process. Add your plants and their watering, rotating, trimming etc. needs and set custom schedules for each them; Plantiary will send notifications to you every time your plants needs your attention.

    Check out if you'd like:

    Waiting your feedbacks. Cheers!

    Hi!!!! My name is Daniel. So decided to join the Indie Hacker community. I'm mainly interested in meeting people like me interested in technology and creating sustainable businesses. I'm very interest in innovation and programming.

    Hello hackers,

    my name is Luis Fernando and I'm from Mexico. In my daily job, I'm the product owner of 2 cross-platform mobile apps in the financial sector (credit-unions) as an indie developer and I've created 10 different web and mobile apps for clients. That's the boring part.

    With my side projects, I'm focused on teaching and creating tools for creatives, mostly for real time audiovisual stuff. I love creative coding, music production, projection mapping, real time animations, VJ'ing, hacking things and learn as much as I can.

    I code mainly in Javascript and C++ with Titanium, Node and openframeworks, but I know a little bit of Processing, SonicPi, Swift, Lua, GLSL, PHP, Python, Rust and the list goes far away. As you can see I like to try different languages and tools.

    I would like to make a living from my side projects, which are currently giving me almost nothing in return apart from my own satisfaction and a few sales on the App Store. Also, I will like to improve my communication with communities in which I think I'm terrible at.

    I'm a native Spanish speaker, (sorry if you find my English bad) and I speak a little bit of Portuguese too and I want to learn French for the rest of this year.

    I'm happy to be here, I want to learn from you and share anything that can be useful to you from my experience.

    I wish everyone is safe.

    Hello Indie Hackers,

    I'm Dinesh. I've been following Indie Hackers on Twitter and listening to its podcasts for quite a while now and thought it is an appropriate moment for me to join the community finally.

    I've been an advocate for remote working for a long time and believe that it could help you become more productive. As the Covid-19 pandemic started to take its toll on organizations across the world and the trend of remote work became a norm, rather than a luxury. I thought it was a good time for me to start a project for tracking the time and productivity of distributed teams, one which I had planned for quite a while.

    Currently, I am working on an exciting new product timeTracko.com, which is an all-in-one time tracking and productivity tool for freelancers and distributed teams.

    Hi All,
    I am working on an app for photographers to sell their own photos.
    However I think I am burned out. I went from waking up at 5am and writing 100s of lines of code a day to straggling to write one line of code.
    I am sleeping a lot more recently and maybe I am recovering but still cannot find the same passion and motivation I had only two weeks ago.
    I don't have much left on the app. I am currently working on the photo upload screen. I am looking forward to finish and release!
    Anyway, looking forward to contribute to the Indie Hackers community.

    Hi all,
    These bizarre times we are living in had brought me to look deeper into the digital world in order to enjoy more the physical world by becoming a creative nomad.
    I'm wanting to meet other nomads and hopefully partner up with some of them.
    I have plenty of ideas and projects in the drawer and a few of them near to see the daylight.
    Currently, I'm focussing much of my efforts in migrating a thrilling strategy board-game that I created a year ago into the digital world. I was about to launch it to the market when the Covid-19 made me change my mind about the ideal way of doing it.
    I thought that maybe the right place to find the right people to team up and do so, people able to develop the game with Unity3D or digitally market it.
    The game has a lot of potentials as shown by the playtesting reviews and a marketing experiment that I carried on (The experiment was done for the physical board game but I think it is even more valid for its digital version).
    Any contact or ideas are welcomed.
    I would be also happy to collaborate with anyone else idea as long as it is appealing to me, so if you are in need of some help and think I can help in some way please contact me too to further discuss your project.
    You can see some of my work in 'https://jorcasgui.wixsite.com/lawebdejordi'.

    I'm D and I'm a budding micropreneur. I never started before because I was over-complicating it. Then I read the $100 startup and realized I was over-complicating it.

    Hi all. My name is David and I am an entrepreneur looking at converting my business experience in the office equipment sales and finance industries on 3 continents into a saas offering. I do not have any coding or saas development experience, but have a deep understanding of my vertical market and the tools that they need, which I would like to provide to them. The product will be an online financial model to assist in the sales process, which can be applied and used in any country, so am looking for a developer with the ability to do NPV calculations in a user friendly interface. I am looking forward to being part of this community and learning about the best way to approach this project.

    Hi everyone 👋🏼
    I'm a junior software engineer from Tel-Aviv, who suddenly took seriously the thought "Maybe I'll start Indie-Hacking".

    After working for a couple of startups last year as a backend developer, I was starting to look for a new position, when thought to myself "why won't I just try it out meanwhile?" and found myself here on IH :)

    I don't have a plan yet, but I guess that there's no better time than NOW. Especially with such a motivating community living and kicking!

    So, I've started to work on a portfolio and personal website, to learn the PERN Stack (PostgreSQL, Express, React & Node) and to showcase my doings.
    By the way, I'm a musician too, so I might join these two skills in the near future.

    ATM, I have a basic Express server working with PostgreSQL and currently starting to work on the Front-End, building a REACT app.

    I have very little experience with FE Dev, so I'm learning it now, quite from scratch (HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, React, Redux and more). Hope it goes well.

    Very Excited :)

    1. 1

      Awesome - good luck with your own projects! There is no feeling like it!

    Hi team, I'm Jordan and I recently left a job at Goldman Sachs to focus my time on bootstrapping a profitable SaaS business. Currently working on developing an MVP and researching different marketing channels.

    My background is primarily that of a software developer, though I have dabbled in being a sales engineer at a prior job. My current product idea is being built with Go, Postgres, and NextJS (React) on AWS.

    I'm looking forward to learning from others who are also building businesses and come from different backgrounds than me, as well as helping out others wherever and whenever I can. I firmly believe the more people running their own businesses the better.

    1. 2

      Hey Jordan,

      I used to work in Corporate finance before starting my first company in 2016. Lots of up and downs to look forward to!

      What is your Saas?

      1. 1

        Hi Craig,

        Yeah, I'm definitely looking forward to the ride.

        My SaaS is, in a nutshell, Quora for internal corporate knowledge. My experience with other products trying to solve the problem of "how can I get answers to my questions about my company" have convinced me that there is a gap in the market.

        What have you been working on since 2016?

        1. 1

          Hey Jordan,

          That's great idea - definitely an important part of any team, especially as it grows! Would be willing to test it out once it is in the shape to do so.

          I'm a co-founder at YallaParking which is the UAE's leading parking app. No background in Parking or Tech so it has been and continues to be a real learning curve!

    Hi All. I am a tech startup enthusiast and hoping to implement my ideas .

  193. 1

    Hey gang, I'm Hugo, I'm a UX consultant who is starting an info product business in my niche - remote user research methodology and analysis.

    There's a lot of new tools that are changing quickly, and people in the industry aren't really aware of the techniques they could be using to 10x their productivity, even without a pandemic going on.

    My target market is design research managers and practitioners with training budgets in the enterprise/tier 1 space. I'm quite familiar with this space because my work takes me inside a different company at this level every 6-9 months.

    I work in Melbourne, so there are big finance companies, insurance, banks, super, telco, utilities locally with big design offices within each. I imagine this is true in most cities of this size and above.

    My focus in 2020 - 2021 is to build up my presence with this market and audience by producing content alongside updating and repurposing some of my existing training materials.

    I did a market test some years ago and I got about 60 sales to a Udemy course from a single piece of content marketing. I think in the current environment, there is an ongoing opportunity in the space.

    Anyway thanks for this community, I have been a podcast listener for a while now and really enjoy the content. Cheers!

    1. 1

      I forgot to mention, my biggest challenge at the moment is finding sane flow time to work on my courses and content. I'm trying to save for a house, and it's expensive here so I am working as much as possible during the day. I have some time off scheduled in Jan-Feb so hopefully, I can put in some big months and schedule my content out.

      Hey Fabio! What's better for SEO, text content or video content? I'm trying to split my efforts at the moment and it's super hard to make it work with my time constraints.

      1. 1

        It depends in the search intent, go to google, search the querie better fit for you and look the SERP´s, if you see a video pack in it, go for video and content, if you see a image pack optimize your image for tha querie (intent), if you see a list or maybe a rich result take a look to strictured data to optimize your content or urls, in seo alway depends, hope this can help u

    My long-term vision is to improve my country economy by leveraging the tourism.

    My 2020 goal is to create an early adopters community and publish an MVP version of the platform (a blog with affiliate links to hotels and restaurants).

    I'm sure I will get great value from Indiehackers! 😃

      Sounds really cool @lollosava92

      Have you chatted with people in the travel industry? I've been working for a travel company for the past 10 months and I think you could probably partner with DMCs (Destination management companies) to provide the destinations. Most travel sites and agencies work with DMCs so it can be a good channel for you

    I am James, a decade of SE experience who is lost and floating around trying to figure out what to do next!

  217. 1

    Hi, I'm Sam. I've gone through countless ideas, build many MVPs, and learned tons while doing it all, but I finally think I have "the one" idea that I can build into a successful product. I'm joining here for the same reason people talk about their diets with friends: accountability. It's too easy to fizzle out or move onto a new project when no one is watching, or even knows about the current project in the first place. I'm hoping to avoid that.

    1. 1

      Hi Sam,

      Why do you think ideas have easily fizzled out in the past, if no one is watching? Lack of traction, loss of interest etc? Would be keen to know more.


      1. 1

        Usually I'd get distracted by something else. I have a very close friend (data scientist) that would pitch an idea while we'd be at a hockey game or something. I'd drop what I was working on to forge ahead on it, then he'd lose interest and the whole thing would kinda fizzle. That actually happened a few times. Also, not blaming him at all. I did the same thing to myself with a "better idea" more times than he ever did.

        I'd often bite off more than I could chew as a solo founder, and even if I could tackle the codebase, the idea of doing marketing + sales + support as well just sounded so tiring I'd lose motivation. This happened as soon as I'd near MVP stage, almost without fail. So y'know, after wasting a few months coding. It started becoming a real product, (with all the responsibilities that come with that) as opposed to a nights/weekends hacking project, and I had nothing preventing me from just dropping it and taking a break for a few months other than my own pride. Also, I'm not a very proud person, so that was definitely the path of least resistance.

        1. 1

          Hi Sam, thanks for sharing and that's totally fair!

          I'm lucky to have an awesome co-founder at YallaParking and most definitely could not have done it without him.

          Sounds to me like you were just figuring out which problems you want to work hard to solve!

          I'd be interested to know what makes this idea ("the one") different to the rest?

          Cheers, Craig

          1. 1

            Honestly, scope. I took a bite-sized version of another idea I'd been working on, which was starting to get overwhelming. Like, possibly 12+ months of solo coding before even an MVP. I extracted what the true value was from the other idea and came up with a much simpler solution to that same problem.

            All of a sudden, 12 months became closer to 2 or 3, and I could leverage a lot of the code I'd written for the smaller version. I'm hoping to have a usable MVP by the end of this weekend... I hadn't really set a deadline for myself, but I was just sort of assuming it'd be fall at the earliest. Now I have to figure out the rest, like marketing... which I may be looking at partnering with someone that knows that landscape, much like yourself and your partner seem to have done.

            1. 1

              Oh wow, yeah that's a lot of work just to get to MVP!

              Sounds like you did the right thing in stripping it back a lot and just focussing on the core value assumption.

              Did you manage to ship your demo? Wouldn't mind trying it out and providing feedback if it's relevant.

              Yeah it can hectic when you try to focus on everything at once. We went through an accelerator with our current startup and one of the best pieces of advice was that we really only needed to interview/talk with about 15 potential customers in your niche to figure out the next steps and where the problem/solution gap was.

              Just focus on finding a few customers and then seeing what they like about the product, then find a few more etc!

              Good luck!

    Hi, Im Tomas and I currently have an e-commerce store but im struggling with it and I want to learn from other people so I can improve

  219. 1

    Hi all and @rosiesherry,

    Hope you're well! My name's Andy,

    I'm a UX'er/User researcher in Scotland. Found Indie Hackers through the podcast, it's been keeping me going whilst running ;) Some amazing stories and impressive interviewees and projects.

    After having dipped in and out the forum and spent most of lockdown working flat out, I figured it's a good time to broaden my horizons a bit and stretch myself in other ways with a new side project of my own.

    I really enjoy helping companies and charities improve their products and services through UX, User Research and Analytics. Have been doing that type of work for the past 10 years.

    Ideas I'm thinking about:

    Helping companies and others learn to do User Research

    • Have seen quite a few companies and teams struggling with working out how to start to engage with their actual users and ask the right questions to get the right results, then build it into their processes and product / dev cycle.

    • Straight up consulting or a blended mix
      Kind of like a paid-for service, a blended part-course with coaching check-ins or a lower priced course-only process you can work through for your own outcome (eg. Setup and benchmark your social media, create a measurement framework for your organisation, UX coaching).

    Still at early stages. Grateful for any thoughts and feedback on how others have gone about it. I will do my own proper research too ;)

    Looking forward to hopefully joining in a bit more (rather than listening/reading) when I get something going.

    All the best,


    1. 1

      Hi Andy,

      Fellow Scot here! Definitely the case at my Startup YallaParking where we previously struggled with UX, customer conversations and implementing quick, iterative changes in improving our product on an continuous basis.

      Definitely, Asking the right questions has been key - the book 'the mom test' really helped me and our team with that. Also still struggle with finding the right ways of engaging with customers at scale on an ongoing basis.

      In the early stages we didn't have anyone specifically handling customer feedback/user research and implementing it. Although it is paramount for founders/ early employees to engage in the process, outsourcing parts of it would possibly be interesting.

      Would be interested to learn more from you for my side project ideas.


      1. 1

        Hey Craig,

        Hope you're well - cheers for your message! And well done for surviving levels of heat and sun never seen in Scotland, lol :P

        I don't think your experience is uncommon. It can be difficult to know where to start or conversely spending alot of time trying to engineer 'the perfect system' when in reality a mix of methods can get you great results from a starting point of not knowing. Plus none of this is ever 'set and forget' so needs refining and evolving.

        Small companies often don't have the staff time and budgets but then large organisations can have cultures, silos or processes that can lead to poor implementation. I'd take a good culture and small team over a large silo'd Org with lots of budget & resource any day.

        If you have any questions, feel free to ping them my way, or if you want to have a virtual coffee/chat sometime about it just holler (Same goes for anyone reading this that has queries relating to UX, Google Analytics etc. - happy to offer help or tips if or where I can).

        Would be really interesting to know more about your approach and how you got to where you are just now, as much for my learning too.

        All the best, Andy

        1. 1

          Hey Andy,

          100% agree - a small team, great culture and focus on execution is all it takes to create something really special from nothing!

          Yeah that sounds good - we're on a bit of a fact finding mission at YP just now and would love some advice on how to go about it the right way!

          What's the best way to get in touch - i'm on twitter @craigmcd10 if it helps?

    Hi everyone! *

    My name is Jeremy, I have been passionate about Tech for many years.

    For 20 years, I was Lead Developer and CEO and I developed software for different fields of activity: Bio medical, Genetic engineering, military, industrial, audiovisual.

    But what characterizes me most is my hacker spirit and I don't hesitate to code in a non-code environment. LOL.

    I like to find solutions and I am a master in the art of POC.

    To focus to my clients success I decided to give life to Code Alchimie, my custom software development frenchie agency with a business bootstrapping orientation.

    Now I want to improve my skills in business bootstrapping and growth hacking.

    • Sorry if your eyes are bleeding, my english is horrible. LOL.

    Hi Rosie, being a beginner (1+ yr exp.) in the field of software development, really excited to explore the indie hackers community. A community, unlike an ecosystem where there is a hierarchy here it's about to give and take relationship. So am really excited to be a part of such a community.

    Hi everyone!👋

    I’m a Product Designer working for a tech startup in Denver, Colorado. While I’ve messed around with ideas for software products for a while, recently I started a newsletter. And it isn’t even on tech or software :) It feels good to get outside of the "startup bubble".

    ✍️ So what am I writing about? Cooking. In a world full of food bloggers cranking out mediocre recipe after mediocre recipe, I feel like there is a lack of craft when it comes to how most of us cook at home. Instead, we just mindlessly follow recipes or buy pre-made items. And I’m just as guilty.

    I started Salt Sear Savor in order to serve as personal motivation for becoming a better cook. I’m reading tons of cookbooks, articles, and even taking (online*) cooking classes. Each week I share something I’ve been learning. There will be NO recipes. Just tips and fundamentals to make you a better cook. Past newsletters have included:

    -- Why you should Beware of Steam
    -- 3 Part Series on Herbs
    -- Tips for Better Burgers

    Update: I've consistently written the newsletter for 7 weeks now and am up to 56 subscribers. I'm excited to share the rest of the journey with you all here on IndieHackers ☺️

    *thanks COVID 😉

    Hi! This is Bhargav from India. Lately, I've been obsessed about an idea that I have and have been spending quite a lot of time after my work hours trying to talk to people, do some research and refine my idea. During this journey, was listening to some podcasts on startups and got to know about Indiehackers.

    I'm open to learning, connecting and taking advantage of everything this community has to offer. Looking forward to connecting with a lot of like minded individuals.

    Hi Rosie, Hi Indie Hackers!

    I am happy to be part of your community now. Kind wait to explore all the content created by you guys. I love reading from experiences of other people who have the same mind-set as I have.

    The first time I heard about indie hackers was from an YouTube Video from Aaron Jack. My YouTube video suggestions are often related to programming projects and besides that creating your own business. Now, after I landed on this page I knew that I want to become an indie hacker.

    I am not in a hurry, but more in an exploration phase. Just started working a few years ago at a software company and put a lot of effort in doing sense full stuff and do it in a high quality. I like starting projects, I like the challenges coming up with projects and what I like most is finishing and presenting my projects. I am highly motivated to just do stuff. I don't think about if I will earn a lot of money with my projects or not.

    I just feel like having fun by doing stuff. If you bring something to action, you will definitely get reaction. That is my life motto. Just do stuff, so life can react on it. And with all the reactions I receive I learn, I grow and I become a "better" person. I learned that listening is good, reading is good, but the best way to go is to be surrounded by people who share the same passion on their goals as you do. It hasn't to be the same goals, but if someone has a "drive", you can just "drive" together and have more fun in what you are doing.

    Somehow there is a really positive side of COVID-19 for my personal goals. I had to start working from home office months ago and the first time in my life I started to invest in my private room. In a nice desk, cleaned my apartment, made it simple, changed it in a way that I feel comfortable and productive in my apartment. Since that point I have the feeling that my work desk and my computer are kind of a space ship.

    The reason I call it space ship is, because I like to work focused. That is my secret. Deep work. To really be productive, I have to have a clear mind. Have to be sure that there is no thought. about anything. No timer, no social interactions, no other tasks with overdue. Just that challenge and me - I feel like I am not in the world anymore, I am in the dark silent space and just have one thought. But that thought is so clear in my mind, all other thoughts coming up are only related to that one challenge, that one task I really want to accomplish.

    During COVID-19 lockdown I learned more stuff about myself. Now I have a better feeling of what I can achieve in a certain time when I focused. Therefore I can schedule my task more precisely, I can prioritise them well and that is what I do the most, when I am not in that "Deep Work" state. I just put more and more stuff on my ToDo-List - I just called it "My private backlog". Each time something comes in my mind, I put it in the ToDo-List. I don't differentiate between small or big tasks. Between simple and complex tasks. I just put everything on my list. And each morning I wake up, after taking a shower, I just prioritise my backlog and start working with the selected Items.

    Often it happens that I am not working on an Item which has the highes priority. Because to have a high priority doesn't mean that I am able to effectively solve that issue in an appropriate time. Sometimes I am just lazy and want to work on smaller tasks, or I want to have a success today to motivate myself doing more. In that case I look at my week calendar and plan a day where I will do deep work. And I try to finish anything necessary to be able to have a complete day for myself. That means also telling my girlfriend and my friends and family that I won't be reachable for certain time.

    My girlfriend often knows when I am thinking about my tasks. Because if I don't work on my tasks, I think about them. I am watching and listening carefully if people are telling me something. But I don't listen to topics or people I am not interested in. I don't like talking about movies a lot, don't like to talk about regular day life stuff. I like to listen to people who do stuff and can tell me, what happened after they did something. I like to listen to people I can learn from. I think I will feel very well here in the Indie Hacker Community.

    And as you might realised, I don't just like listening, but talking/writing a lot. Because talking and writing helps me to understand myself better. And of course, because people react. I am happy to be part of your community and to be honest, this is the first time on the Internet I ever wrote something like this text. It seems like I feel really comfortable here :)

    Greetings from Germany!
