“Why are you being a bellend?” 🔔

This is what I really wanted to say to my big brother about 4 years ago.

Shortly after me and Josie had the initial idea of starting up a business together…

We soon realised that we needed a professional looking website.

Unfortunately, I had no idea how to make one! 😐

But, luckily my bro Neo Nortey had recently completed an online course in website building and started to get paying clients for his services.

So, obviously that meant he would create one for me... right!?

Erm… not exactly!

He bluntly said. “No, I think it would be better if you created it for yourself.”

His response felt like a bit of a punch to the stomach. 🥹

What was I going to do now?

We didn't have the skills...

Or quite frankly the patience to make an ecommerce website.

It seemed like our wantrepreneur dreams of success were shattered! 😩

But, after feeling sorry for ourselves for a few hours…

We jumped onto Wix and started designing our first website from scratch.

After lots and LOTS of trial and error.

Publish and live. Yes, we finally managed to stitch together something that resembled a workable website! 🙌

Even more miraculously, real humans started to find our site and began to book our services.

Fast-forward 4 years and we are currently redesigning and re-branding our website again.

And this previously expectant and entitled little brother, did not run to the rescue of his big brother.

Looking back, it seems so obvious…

“You can't hire someone else to do your push ups for you”- Jim Rohn

Even though I still love a productivity hack or short cut, hindsight shows that the hardest lessons are usually the most rewarding.

💭 PS. it would be helpful to get some feedback on the new website so far... it's in beta mode right now.

PPS. Be careful if you are not kind or constructive I might call you a bellend 😅💟
