The moment you improve someone's life is pure magical to me

November 2, 2022




What made you quit your job to build digital products?

I enjoy the full spectrum of building products (from user research to ideation to design and development). Big companies need specialists most of the time, so after spending a few years in the industry I realized that no matter the position, I wouldn't remain happy for long. As a result, I decided to spend some time to understand how it is possible to make a living building my own products, and here we are.

How many products you have built?

Two so far. Audio Bites, which turns your audio into 30-second visual clips, and Social Viewer, which is the demographics of your Twitter followers.

Talk to us about your last product Audiobites?

Audio Bites started as a test to see if I could come up with an idea for a product, build it and launch it within a month's time. People already have their own way of creating their audio content. I wanted to create a super simple way for them to "repackage" their content in a way that allows them to share it around better.

What drives you to build a product? the product itself, the idea, or the money?

I am interested in understanding the problem one might have in their day today. The moment that you can deliver a solution and improve someone's life is pure magic to me. Of course, being able to be paid for it is a huge bonus.

Favorite Tool and why?

Trello. That's how I organize my ideas. I also use it as a kanban board when building.

How do you plan to monetize your products/brand?

Since the launch of Audio Bites, people have been requesting features and customization options they want to see. Some have offered to pay to see them happening. I see that as a great starting point for monetizing the product

Word of advice?

It is still very early for me to be giving advice as I am still learning. A reminder instead would be that things start getting less 'scary' right after you do them for the first time.

Be the first to know

Every time something new comes up, you will be the first one to know
