“The service comes from CEO Zach Sims wanting to learn how to code. Cofounder Ryan Bubinski had been teaching people to code for years as a side job in college”
People need to express their problems to other people. Especially people that are willing to listen and to think about what is said. Meet with people and play a role (Talker/Listener) on both sides. Perhaps you and another person will find something important that needs to be done.
My original comment on the post is below. This was the idea that appeared as I read the sentence in the quoted text above.
A + B = C
Scratch your own itch. You may find others have the same issue that needs solving even if their threshold to pain is quite high.
Itch, itch, itch.
Notes & Extended Thinking:
An itch is any problem big or small that needs solving. Small problems solved, even at a low price, a lot of times can be enormously profitable and can make the world a vastly better place. Only a few people will create and win in the race to be the next big thing. There are a lot of small problems that need solving. Coding and computer programming is not a major subject in the U.S. public education system. Educating people how to code is a mostly untapped market. There are millions of students that will need to acquire the skills they need to participate in the workforce of the 21st century. Each year, several million new students enter the education system. As high school graduates leave, a new group of students is coming to the age where technology is interesting to them.
