I am in sales and just don't have the time with personal stuff to really hunker down and learn coding / software development. I am looking for partners who want to build a long-term business , not make a quick buck as a freelancer / employee. We can help each other learn and bounce new ideas off each other while we both kill it at what we are already good at.
 
What kind of work do you do right now and what would you like to get into?

tell a bit about yourself / ideas and experience you have.

Sounds good , what is your background

thanks for reaching out, what sort of projects are you used to doing?
PaaS, infrastructure for people's websites.
 
Interested, 8+ years in the IT field, know my way around Python, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Node.js, React.js (WordPress, Wix, etc), black hat methods (reverse engineering, redirects, and more).

PM if interested.
 
Are you a SEO/marketer? Because my team really needs one.

We offer shopify landing page/website creation at our agency. Let me know if you'd be interested in that
 
Hey, i’m fullstack developer! I’m interested on your journey!
 
Interested. I have nearly a half decade of development experience. Pm me.
 
I'm just like you, I'm in sales and my business partner is in iT.

You were definitely smarter than me, I found my business partner on LinkedIn, after I reached out to hundreds of developers.

I wish we could create a group of few people just exchanging ideas and help each other. I truly believe that having friends with the business mindset could benefit me and my business. PM if interested
 
My History
  • Entrepreneurial Start (2 years):Developed a Supreme bot 7 years ago, offering a unique billing method ($15 per successful purchase). Achieved significant traction and sales via the /r/shoebots subreddit.
    • Supreme is a high-end clothing brand (http://supremenewyork.com) which releases highly-sought after clothes every week which sell out in a manner of seconds. My bot checked out extremely fast
    • Sold this product for a while, but eventually abandoned it due to declining sales (lack of marketing), maintenance issues (first thing I ever coded, the codebase was a mess), and a desire to make something new
  • Innovation During COVID-19 (2 years):Created SmartCut, an application that attends online classes on your behalf, with features like fake webcam, voice response to attendance calls, and connectivity issue simulation (in case the teacher keeps calling your name). As a one-man team, I faced burnout, didn’t market it, and minimal marketing led to limited sales.
    • In this time frame, I also worked on many other smaller projects and attended a coding bootcamp
  • Cannabis/Hemp Venture (2 years):Moved into the cannabis/hemp industry, creating vape and edible products under two brands
    • Created the brands
    • Created each product, including packaging design and manufacturing
    • Partnered with other manufacturers for certain products
    • Partnered with local distributors for sales at a retail level
    • Attempted to enter the online delta-8 space with limited success (again, marketing troubles)
    • Moved on to enter the supplement field
  • Partnership in Nutraceuticals (1 year):Collaborated on developing a nanoemulsion of a nutritional supplement, achieving a formulation with 50 nanometer particle sizes for quick absorption. Project paused due to high production costs.
    • A nanoemulsion greatly increases the absorption rate and bioavailability of the target chemical
    • What is absorption rate?: Take THC for example. Normally, it will take 60+ minutes to feel the effects of an edible. If the THC was made into a nanoemulsion of 50 nanometers, it would take 5 minutes or less.
    • During this time, I also did countless hours of research into the supplement space. Alot spent on reading clinical research, and the rest spent learning about the competition.
  • Current Focus: Building an exciting software application with viral potential in the AI space, and a separate supplement brand, leveraging extensive experience in software, product development, and the supplement market, along with the connections I built
My Resources
  • Software engineer: Experienced full stack software engineer with capabilities in website and desktop application development; adept at hacking solutions together in unfamiliar spaces.
  • Product Development Expertise: Skilled in developing products within the hemp and supplement, industry, covering targeted branding, formulations, packaging design, and manufacturing.
  • Logistics and Fulfillment: I have warehousing partners for order fulfillment.
  • Manufacturing Connections:I have valuable connections in the hemp and supplement space, enabling low-cost manufacturing with low Minimum Order Quantities (MOQs) for rapid product experimentation and iteration.
    • Manufacturing Capabilities:
      • Can produce a wide range of products including capsules, gummies, drinks, tinctures, salves, lotions, topicals, vapes, and pre-rolls.
      • Versatile in incorporating either supplements, hemp ingredients, or both in products.
  • Packaging partners: I’ve fostered a good relationship with both domestic and Chinese packaging manufacturers who are amazing at what they do.

In conclusion, I can quickly develop and iterate on products in the supplement and hemp space. Let me know if that interests you. Although I am developing a very exciting AI application at the moment, I can't talk about it for another 1-2 months. However, let me know if that interests you as well and I'll set a reminder to reach back out when the time comes. Feel free to send me a DM. If you'd like to talk "face-to-face" I'm happy to send you a calendly link!

Check out my reply above, I'm definitely interested in talking. Let me know if you'd like to go on call for 30 minutes or so, I'll send you my calendly link and we can see if there's any way to help eachother out
 
We are into AI researching. Made a SaaS website and we'll launch a few AI influencers + many more ideas on which I won't share here.
Just replying to you so I have your contact saved. I'd love to talk to you about your AI influencers. Once my product is ready for market there may be some potential for collaboration :)
