I’ve wrested with the lack of creative fulfillment in my life for the past few years.
What feels like a lifetime ago, I created many “side hustles”. Spending my “extra” time in front of a screen creating. Then things caught up to me or my priorities changed. I started going to bed earlier, slowing down and asking how do I sell this? My priorities were shifting - I was starting a family, getting into the “serious parts of my career”. My side hustles went dormant.
Fast forward a decade later…
I’ve struggled with getting fulfillment from my work. I no longer “create”, spending time dreaming of what I could create. Usually takes a good kick in the pants to get started (in this case it was a conversation with my wife). Thus here I am getting things started.
Reusing my old “freelance handle” to act as the “north star”. Projekt19 will house 19 products by 2023. I don’t know what those products will be at this moment and that’s the point. It might be a digital good, hard good, subscription, ebook, app, SASS - it’s better to stay undefined. I want to focus on a problem, market and then a solution.
I can imagine there will be a mix of everything, but the real benefit of all this - is back to how it all started. I need to create! Can’t think of a better way to do that than allowing myself to create whatever I want.
Getting back to the question
Launching a newsletter/blog is to record the journey. To hold myself accountable. I also hope to learn and share. Meet some new people that might share similar stories to me.
