We often think that to build a product, we have to drop everything that we’re doing, and just focus on building! While some people might have an abundance of time and resources to go all in, it’s often not possible for most of us.
Financial and social commitments can compete with getting a product idea off the ground.
The good news is that you don’t need to give up your day job, you can start with a side project!
The following video segment is the first, in a series, with Ben Congleton, CEO & Founder of Olark, and myself on the topic: How to Transform Your Ideas into Software Products.
In this video segment we dig into what inspired us to start building products, and how we both began building products on the side.
Once you’ve watched this video, let us know in the comments below, if you’ve thought about starting a project on the side, and what might be holding you back from getting started? If you have already started, how you’ve stay committed to making progress on it?
