If you asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up, I would not know. Unlike some people, I never wanted to do just that one thing. Instead, I loved exploring. And so I did. I spent my childhood doing sports, graphic design, programming, reading, and more.
However, I could not see myself doing any of those things for a living as it would mean having to leave the other ones. Luckily, I found out there is a job for people like me. I call it idea babysitting.
Ideas are like children. When an idea is born, it starts off as a feeble and insignificant noise in our brain. We have many thoughts every day. Most of them will die before they develop into something serious; we simply forget about them. As a result, it is quite possible that daily, we miss out on many great ideas.
The ideas that learn to walk have to face a strong resistance. Regardless of the idea, we are programmed to do our best to prevent these new, daring thoughts from disrupting our comfort zone. Even if they could improve many people's lives.
It takes a lot for an idea to make it to puberty. But once it gets there, it starts to grow. Out of all those ideas, it was this one that was strong enough to survive. Now we cannot stop thinking about it.
The adulthood is where the idea gets completed. Depending on the idea, this could mean making a breakfast, forming a theory, or building a company. Adulthood is usually the longest part of an idea's life as it takes time to complete most ideas.
I am in the business of identifying the most promising ideas and babysitting them on their journey to adulthood. While investing is an interest of mine, for now I chose the way of entrepreneurship. I am always interested in connecting with ambitious people. If that's you, you know what to do - press the button below. 🤓
Although most of these projects are not open source, I am open to collaboration in case you are interested.
