Introduce yourself!

What's up everyone?

I'm Elliott. I'm an elementary teacher by trade who went from being a no-tech person to getting plugged into the IH podcast, and then building www.ricatest.com in 48 hours, which made it's first sale hours after I hit the publish button. Now, I'm totally obsessed.

Happy to be here; thanks to @JohnatProxii for the invite code, @csallen for the platform and am looking forward to sharing and connecting with others.

    My name is Casper.

    I work as an azure devops engineer for a software company in Denmark.

    I have yet to find the exact idea that I can work on in my freetime and establish a bootstrapped software business. Though I have many promising ideas but they are dependant on other factors than my dedication.

    How did you find your purpose full idea?

      Hi Casper, thanks for your reply. Sounds like you’ve got the skills to make something cool.

      I built ricatest.com because I realized these factors:

      • I was spending a TON of time studying for the test, and I was really freaked out that I might not pass it
      • I noticed that there was competition, but not a lot
      • I realized that ricatest.com was available, which would help with SEO

      I solved a boring yet important problem of my own.

      Hope that helped.

        Hi Elliott.

        Thanks I believe I have yes, so I hope I get a brilliant idea soon that is actually feasible to accomplish.

        That is a good strategy for developing a product that is market fit. I have yet to find a problem in my life that has enough potential to save me time that I can develop.
