Hey elphas, I'm feeling lost rn. Just left my last job and really not sure what to do next. I have no financial pressure so money is not a concern, and I am trully looking to work on a long-term project that will bring me fullfillment.
Heres a bit fact about me:
- Been working in tech in the past 6+ years
- Hopped between 2 verticals
- Hard skills: design(UX) and develop(frontend)
- Soft skills: Communication ( I always have the best communication skill within my team)
Since a few years ago I've been thinking about getting out of the traditional career path. I have no fantasy of working for big co's like FAANG and not interested in climbing the career letter/earning a lot of money. I'm specifically looking up to people like Peter Levels who built a business with a one man team (and I'm actively looking for FEMALE role models who went through similar path and made it) but I'm not sure where to start, since I grew up with typical employee mindset and nobody around me has that kind of "business sense" that made a breakthrough.
Any advice is welcome! I'm specifically looking to connect with elphas in this community since most "indiehackers" online are average white males who I don't resonnate that much with.
