Hey, I'm Roberto.
A professional problem solver that has been covering the end to end in digital product crafting (from inception, design, ownership, development, team building, and management) for the past ten years.
Right now, I'm taking a gap period to explore, design, and develop ideas in cycles of 6 to 8 weeks, launch them, and see what happens.
Before that, I led a global blockchain practice at a big corporate, drove growth and product at two tech companies, co-authored a bestseller about blockchain technology, and started and sold a company in my last year at college, among other things (see more about me).
And during this time, many friends, colleagues, or peers asked me lots of times to write or publish something to help others going that same road.
When considering it, I felt that it never was the right time. Sometimes, because I thought I didn't know enough about the process (I can't stand gurus telling you the "tips and tricks" to become a millionaire in a year); sometimes, because I was burning out through hours of work at other companies.
Now, all this experience, mistakes made, successes, and lessons learned, are wildly having sex in my head, and I decided to build Maker's Way.
What's in for you?
The central question that acts as a cornerstone in Maker's Way is, with everything I've learned so far, how can I help digital makers build a business on their passions?
So, all the content and resources you'll find here are focused on deconstructing the process that goes from having a fresh idea to making it grow.
Maker's Way is based on two key pillars (for now):
1) Newsletter: Showing you how other makers are already succeeding.
Short and sweet emails with case studies of makers like you that already went further the way you started.
Analyzing them from a business perspective, you'll get the answers that make up the foundations of their businesses.
Answers to questions like:
- How did they come up with the idea?
- What is their value proposition?
- Who are their customers?
- How are they acquiring them?
- How are they making people aware of their product?
- Which tools have they used to build it?
- Which takeaways can you take from their story?
2) Maker's Vault: Resources to help you build
A curated collection of tools, frequently updated, to help you ideate, build, launch and grow whatever you decide to create.
It is built upon notion.so (you can create an account for free), in it, you'll find resources like apps, newsletters, books, design assets or even Twitter threads.
I'm collecting every asset I find useful that is helping me along the way, so it can help you too.
It's a growing database, so you can sort elements by stage (Ideate, Build, Launch or Grow), by type of pricing (paid, free or freemium), by type of resource or search typing what you want to find.
The vault gets updated frequently. I tell about new additions in each newsletter edition for you to be updated all the time.
I can't wait to see what you are building or planning to build.
So, what to do next?
1) Subscribe to the newsletter
2) Follow me on Twitter, where I'm building all my projects in public.
If you have any doubt or just want to say hi, feel free to write me!
