Financial independence – having enough savings, investments, and cash to afford the lifestyle you want for yourself and your family – is an important goal for many people. It also means growing savings that will allow you to retire or pursue any career without being burdened by the need to earn a certain amount each year.

What is Financially freedom?

Idea: Music Submission Platform”While in DC, I kicked off a music blog called Indie Shuffle (as a hobby). I quickly became hooked on the “game” of generating more visits, and in the process started to teach myself the fundamentals of front-end development. By the time 2013 rolled around, the blog had become a full-fledged online publishing company, and I was ready to make it my main focus.

One of the biggest frustrations of running my music blog was that when I dedicated it full time, I was receiving over 300 email pitches a day from artists, labels, and publishers, all looking to get their music featured on Indie. Shuffle. After a while, I just started ignoring them, even though deep down I knew there had to be a better way.

Then, towards the end of last year, I decided that a good way to learn some new coding languages ​​would be to try to solve this problem by developing a website to streamline the process. And thus SubmitHub was born.

The idea was simple: those interested could submit their songs (SoundCloud or YouTube) to Indie Shuffle on SubmitHub. We would then receive the submissions in a consistent feed from which we could give them a “pass up” or a “pass down”; the former meant we were planning to blog about it; the latter meant that we were not interested. Deep down, I thought that one day it might be possible to charge a small fee in exchange for a few words about why we weren’t interested. (e.g., “You can’t sing in tune.”)

At that time, my main goal was to solve my own problem. I hadn’t paid much attention to the thousands of other music blogs that might want to use it. I guess I was lucky in that sense: I was already “part of the problem” and therefore had a good understanding of what was needed to “solve” it.
