Always building, occasionally online:

Global Mention 🌎

My Journey 🐾

  • Started freelancing as a marketer shortly after graduating from college

  • Got into coding and no-code prototyping to develop and monetize my own products

  • Building profitable businesses full-time with an international customer base

How I Learn 🧠

  • Learn by doing, building & creating

  • Pursue knowledge in T (width and depth)

  • Micro consumption, macro execution

  • Cross-disciplinary, a multifaceted approach

  • A generalist who thrive in the digital age

Personal Moats 🥇

  • Mastery in creating, building, and selling

  • Rare combination of a marketer, product thinker & designer

  • Can-do spirit, sustained dedication to achieve anything I set my mind to

  • Learn patterns, break patterns. Try until I start winning :P

Productivity Tips ⚡️

  • Develop single-pointed, unwavering focus ability

  • Become easy to find, but (almost) impossible to reach

  • Develop prolonged & sustained mental, physical and emotional energy

  • Practice deep work and deep rest to prevent burnout

  • Protect your energy and time as if they were life and death

Product Lessons 🥳

  • Don’t chase new startup ideas. Focus on the problems to solve, then you will have ideas.

  • Build something you wish existed and become the user of your own product.

  • The best sign for product-market fit is when sustainable number of people pay to use your product.

Fun Facts 😂

  • Back in college, I dabbled in electronic music production and DJing

  • I composed and released my first EDM track on a record label based in Miami, United States

  • The same track had also been featured on local radio station

  • Performed and DJ-ed in front of 5,000 people at a corporate event

Favorite Quotes 🖊️

  • "Figure out how to figure it out"Sam Altman.

  • "Be alone, that is the secret of invention; be alone, that is when ideas are born"Nikola Tesla.

  • "Entrepreneurship is not about starting companies; it's about solving problems."Michael Seibel.

  • "What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create"Laws of Attraction

Realization 🚦

  • Stay humble. Everything we have accomplished, owned, experienced, and accumulated is merely temporary "rentalship," never lasting "ownership." We come with empty hands and back to nature ⚰️ with empty hands.

  • Be perceptive. Death will eventually eradicate what was never ours in the first place., i.e. job title, identity, property, lovers, money.

  • Struggling emotions are usually caused by confusing happiness with joy; intellect with wisdom; and outside validation with passion.

  • Be your own creator. Following a "templated" life defined by any authority will leave you feeling as if you are not living up to other people's "standard".
