Open Startup Begins!

Marcellus Spears @Otexas

Today I start by being more open about progress and holding myself more accountable.

Last year I focused on improving web development skills, learning blockchain development, generating my product list, and learning more skills to be a solopreneur. Now, I'm going to focus on building an online business.

I've gained a thorough understanding of what type of company I want to run, customer problems I would like to solve, and how to market and ship fast with or without code. So, I'm refocusing my efforts with Plaid Pizazz.

I'll be launching one product a month from October 2019 through September 2020 under this brand, with a niche focus and an open startup approach. Think of Plaid Pizazz as an indie, open SaaS studio!
