Let's be an entrepreneur!

September 12, 2019

I always wanted to be my own boss. I guess everybody kind of does after having had a boss for long enough but I knew even before getting into the working world. After finishing my studies I thought I had the skills and the drive necessary to be self-employed at least, even if there were parts of it that I dreaded (like custommer acquisition). However after a while of struggling in my little corner of France I tried another approach.

If I couldn't do it alone, surely I could complement someone else's skillset well enough to permit both of us to live from our work, right? And so I partnered with two other friends to form Interesting By Design and tried to do just that. We're still in the middle of that experiment but I learned a lot about myself already.

As much as I think I want to be self-employed I cannot for the life of me do custommer acquisition. It is just not an option for it to be part of my work. Thankfully my other 2 partners are pretty good at it compared to me and I make up my lack of involvement on certain sides of the business with technical skill.

I will likely have more to say about this when the experiment is done and will make a blog post about it.
