do you want to create your first free (or libre, as in freedom) digital product with an audience?
and capitalize it beyond your dreams to retire young?!
then follow along my path on how i will do it for myself! 😏
this quest started with lucas interview. perhaps you'll want to watch it too (in case you know portuguese).
and then let's recap a related concept...

in my case, i will use something from #ahoxus, such as #achoz, #uproot, or perhaps even #abotz / #aloze if i get lucky. but i will focus the bulk of my personal time to structure everything right and eventually only connect the dots! #maincharacter
in your case, pick your battle. find your ikigai: something you love, that you already work on frequently, that you can take on the worst aspects of it even daily if needed (when most people can't), and that people will to pay someone for doing all that work. your balance.
i first learned about #ikigai perhaps 7 years ago. and never gave it much thought through the years. take your time to find yours.
when you do find your passion, it will be time to go digital.
some call it #digitalmarketing or personal marketing. while i will certainly go through those techniques, my focus will be on linking (or relinking data and energy, thus #relinxus).
combining people, agents, users, consumers, developers, producers, kids, elderly, and many more. do you see the pattern?
yes, i will become the...
or middle person. you know...
have you also grew up to hate the middleman? why?
if you think about it, you may realize they usually centralize power!
you know them. they love to monopolize.
but keep in mind that decentralization only offers half the answer for long term, like all dichotomies... we actually want #harmonicchaos!
you can become your own middleman (like i will do) or you can use harmonicchaosized 3rd parties: just like all other free, good, and nearly invisible services out there, such as local restaurants with cheap and uniquely exquisite food, or that vehicle driver who can hear you or make jokes at virtually zero cost.
a good 3rd party will sell their service, somehow teach how they do it through transparency, and keep their profits in balance for the environment, while continuously learning and evolving in the process. we can give the fish, teach how to fish, and fish only what we need for ourselves (in the broad view). sustainable life!
now, a final bit of...
the best way to connect with the world today will always be through #videos.
and, yet, here i share this text.
actually, here you read my public script draft to the video. i write as a #braindump, almost unedited, in a single seat (like i often do). in fact i spent less than 1h writing (including minor text editing) and more than 1h more finding nice media to add the final edition touch (including learning how to properly add videos and add text for the blind).
another irony: i will publish videos under (completely non free) tiktok @ahoxus, perhaps even before #peertube, in which i will promote #free ideas from #fsf such as #fupl (my version of agpl3+).
i will do it mostly because free videos tools still lag behind way too much, especially for #mobileonlylife as i live myself.
but who cares?
well, isn't this ironic? perhaps, and it might come off as an overkill, but i wanted to add it anyway for my own sake...
too long? didn't read?
if you have read everything so far and you want to do anything in this relinxus direction for your life, the best news come last: simply by learning about all this you already started to work towards doing it.
now take a step back. breath. let it sink in. and then keep on moving! 🥰
