12 Startups in 12 Months. This my new foolproof master plan.
I want to give you some context for this decision:
I'll start on August 1st of 2020 and I'll update this article every month.
If I were to describe my whole entrepreneurship story as of now I'd say it could be better. My focus until I turned up 25 was to leave my country and when I came to Germany I realised that I wanted to start my own company. Now, when you don't master the language from the country you're in and you're new it's harder, or at least that is what I thought about it.
Now I think that if you want to do something you should do it. Especially if it's something where you don't need any permissions to do it like in the software industry.
I have a series of failed attempts up my sleeves:
Long story short they never came to be. At least not for me. What these projects have in common is that I took too long to ship them. Even with Rocket Launcher I feel like I've taken too long to release the project and have traction.
Why do projects take so long to ship?
So what am I going to do about it? My patience and time is finite and I can't wait forever creating the perfect product. I want to build a SaaS application and offer it online. Even if the application is not perfect, it'll will help me to get closer to success.
I have the following influences right now:
Why does this make sense? I believe this strategy make sense from three different perspectives:
Who else has done this?
So let's see how this goes. I'll be listing all of my startups the following months. I'll start the countdown 1st of August 2020. For now, I'll be doing clones of other websites with Ruby on Rails.
List of Startups
So I hope that with this I'll change my way of describing my startups journey. I've had many failures in the past and I think it has to do mostly with fear, lack of experience and a clear timeline. With the ideas from Scott Adams, Amy Ahoy and Pieter Levels I expect to create a system that will allow me to create a system to test ideas and ship them fast. There are some people already online who has tried this with good results.
