I have been a long-time wannapreneur. I've lurked in the shadows and slowly digested article after article on making it big. I've half-assed a few projects and I've equally lost steam shortly thereafter. I've slept in when I should have been working towards what I want.
Slowly but surely I'm making conscious decisions to change the tide of the personal battle and work on things that make me happy and provide me professional fulfillment.
For the last few years I have had a number of 'startup ideas' that would surely make it big. They might have, but they definitely didn't - not least because I didn't stick with any of them after a few weeks at a time. Development time wasted again and again.
However, if there is one thing that startup founders parrot potentially more than any other advice it is that you should scratch your own itch. So I have done exactly that.
I'm now happy to spread the word about Nomible; a meal-planning app that automatically generates meal plans for you every week, compiles shopping lists with the right portions for you and lets you know the cheapest place to buy. Not only that but you will be able to share and explore your own recipes, connect with food bloggers around the world and make your busy-ass routine just that little bit more bearable every evening. Create popular recipes and it could even be the platform for you to launch your very own professional food-blogging career - earning revenue for frequently used recipes.
Nomible: (Noun) Something that is able to be eaten in a nom way.
Having said all of this, there is one thing that I can't escape - I can't commit to months of development without knowing that people really do want this. I implore you to shout to the heavens (email@example.com) and let me know exactly what you think of the idea, what you might suggest and whether you would be willing to pay for it.
Lastly, if you are feeling super excited about something like this, please sign up to my mailing list on nomible.co so that I can keep you updated on progress as it happens.
Thanks for reading, and here's to the months ahead for Nomible and I!
