<aside> ℹ️ This was part of my #5Weeks; 5 Stories, 5 Products in 5 Weeks challenge.

I bet you never see me selling any kind of products or even myself.

I always tweet about something for the sake of having conversations.

I was hoping if more people liked or responded to them, I would be more confident in selling. But I have nothing to sell, right? So I gave up.

It's all a result of my excuses. I used my shiny-object syndrome to build creative stuff, but in reality, I just let myself burn out without any clear goals.

A little background:

I’ve always been a good employee. I am just happy with that.

When I lost my job, I thought it would be fun to try as a freelancer. So I did exactly that.

As we got older, we started to have self-doubts. Am I on the right path? Or if I did enough.

When that happened, I pushed myself to become more adventurous.

I started with an idea of running an agency. A full-stack development agency; building websites, mobile apps, chatbots, and a few more. It’s working out well. But I wanted more.

No Code Asia, paid memberships?

After several failed attempts, I started No Code Asia to create inspiration for new ideas with other like-minded members.

But managing a community is hard. And I started to blame myself for the lack of knowledge in that department.

I initially wanted to start a paid membership plan. But the idea scares me a lot that I had to put it on hold.

The Unstuck Challenge

A certain event happened recently in my life and I decided to come to terms with it. I need to stop living in denial. Thanks to the Unstuck Challenge, I am able to adopt new beliefs.

I did the “Letting go of our past baggage” exercise and listed out the things that haunt me.
