How I went from learning Product Design to building a world-class studio, working on 7-figure contracts, remotely.
It took me close to a decade to get us where we are now. In this post, I’m aiming to share everything I’ve learned along the way. This is basically everything I wish I knew before I got started.
I started my career by designing blogs. By designing I mean I was stealing a few CSS lines from here and there, dropping them into my code and then spending hours trying to figure out why it didn’t work. Little did I know then that it was basically what I was going to repeat for the rest of my career. Meaning just experimenting with a bunch of different things to see what works, what doesn’t and figure out the why. Just like how we learned how to walk, talk, bicycle, make friends, etc. So on my own, I learned how to code, design, hire, manage, negotiate, systemize and more. But unlike when we were younger, it came with hesitation almost every step of the way.
You see, when we were young, we had this power of focus
