Makers, we all make mistakes when we work on projects. If there were a time you can go back, what would you change and what advice you give yourself?

To stop drinking. So many lost opportunities as a result of bad mood, hangovers, days in Vegas, and so on.

@phantomus_team I quit drinking, smoking cigarettes and vaping for 3-1/2 years and it was the best change for my life I ever made. Mental clarity, healthy skin and weight control, more natural energy and excitement with less depression or anxiety. I finally excelled at getting back into my education I went back to college and decided I was mature enough to handle drinking again for the “ole college experience”. Within two months it turned into binge drinking, no money, missing classes and blackout “memories” with people that weren’t my friends so I immediately quit again. TLDR; Take care of yourself and if you think you have an issue or want to make a healthy change in your life quit those bad habits for 6 months and watch how quickly your life can positively change. It’s incredible and you’ll never get that time back that you lost to mindlessly binging.

@justin_gardner Thanks Justin, and I did. Every thing you metioned, happened - the quality if life, work, and everything in between increased right away, can’t share how much because its a lot over the past year.

@phantomus_team congratulations, it’s amazing what you can begin to accomplish when you aren’t using your free time just drinking.

Give me a tough problem to solve 💫
@phantomus_team I think moreover - alcohol has a huge impact on your hormones and your general state of balance. Clarity is key when you're trying to kill it in your career!

@angezanetti How do you go about pre-orders? How do you get the traction to do pre-orders?

@evan_sellers Describe your value proposition clearly (why you built it, who's this for, what's the benifts…) put this on a Gumroad page. Guess a pricing and make a 50% discount Then share this page where your potentials customers are (look for communities)
Evan Sellers
@angezanetti What kind of website do you look for communities on?

@evan_sellers Pretty much depends of your target. But Reddit is a good one!

@falak_sher I am guilty of this still. But I like to set a short time frame a week or two and launch a prototype by then.

@falak_sher I feel you! I ignored all my side projects in 2022. One of my goals for 2023 is to stop procrastinating and get going on all those projects! 🤞
