TV Premiere Alert: A Tool I Built without Writing Code

Quick story 🗺️Fast forward todayI used to think I was unable to learn code, but one day, I took a website development course on Udemy where I built a website from scratch, and that triggered a series of events. I gained confidence (a beginner web dev course makes magic) and started building websites. Since then, I built my first very simple web app using JavaScript (more on this in a further post).

I admire those people, but I took a different approach. I keep my job while spending most of my free time launching 10 products (MVPs) this year and also aiming to reach 1000 dollars revenue per month. Every single time I came up with a new product idea to test, I hit a roadblock. I can’t code. The next logical step would have been to learn to code and build my own stuff, right?…
