๐Ÿ”ฅ Do things, tell people

07 March 2022

๐Ÿค– When I was younger, I liked to build things (still do), and I was very often surprised that people were not just flocking to my fantastic new project once I released it.

After some time, I understood the truth.

๐Ÿ’กIt really helps if you are good at two things - doing stuff and telling others about it. Being good at one of them is also acceptable if you have a partner who can support you with the other part.

To start getting good at talking about things, I started writing and sharing my thoughts. Bits and pieces of my experience that some people might find helpful.

๐Ÿ‘ And when Iโ€™m at networking events (which happens very rarely), I usually talk about the cool projects that weโ€™ve built at mindnow, not about who we are and why weโ€™re fantastic. Itโ€™s cool to share the stories of how we managed to do X with Y limitations, and everyone ended up happy.

There are also many other ways to make yourself visible - conferences, contributing to open-source libraries, writing guides, books, whitepapers.

๐Ÿš€ I think making a name for yourself like โ€œthe person who built that cool thingโ€ or โ€œthe guy who posts stories on LinkedInโ€ is fun. The next time someone, who saw your value, thinks of something related to your area of expertise - theyโ€™ll come to you.
