The Moment Every Developer Must Conquer

These are the most important posts I write.

I got this YouTube comment from Sir Joelsuf:

“I feel like I’m not learning enough and not doing enough. Its been pretty overwhelming. I wanted to replace a full time job with freelancing but its not working out. Working full time wasn’t either and I was getting nowhere and wasted 8 years of my life at a really bad job. I guess I’m at a crossroads.”

This happens to every developer.

Every developer I know anyway.

There’s that moment… when things aren’t going how you imagined. You’re starting to doubt if you’re cut out for this coding “thing”. You begin to wonder if you’re smart enough to actually do this.

That sick feeling stabbing you in your gut.

“I’ve put so much time and energy into this.”

“If I give up, it’ll be such a waste.”

“But, I’m not getting ANYWHERE! AAAAGH!”

And, the truth is…

That’s when you know you’re ready. Because, it’s not until you reach THIS point that you’re fully ready to put your ego aside, to forget everything you THINK you know, to stop trying to be “right” over everything else.

And, listen.

And, do.

And, be willing to try things you’ve previously written off.

And, work harder than you ever have before.

This is the moment when successful developers are made. And, they’re made by doing one single thing: KEEP MOVING FORWARD! Persist. If you can find a way to do that, this will be your turning point.

If not…

You’ll just be another failed wannabe developer.

So, make your choice.

And, if you decide to persist… I can help. I built my entire training curriculum for this moment. I purposefully put it on SkillShare, where I can give you the 2-month no-cost trial, to make it easy for you to say YES!

It is meant for this moment.

All you gotta do is say, “F!@# IT!”

And, GO for it!

I’ll be waiting.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

Ray Edwards

I recommend John every chance I get. If every person I worked with were as committed to excellence, punctuality, value, and unquestionable integrity… the world would be a better place. Highest recommendation.

Chris Aitken

He significantly improved my site through his expert knowledge of PHP, CSS and Javascript. Would definitely recommend John to others.

Daniel Mohlendick

On the Freelancing on Upwork course: “This is by far the best course i have watched on Skillshare!! Thank you so much.”

Bradley Smith

John and I have worked together on numerous projects. John is very quick and efficient and was a pleasure to work with.

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

Lewis Howes

John is amazing at building membership sites. He converted one of my sites over from it’s existing (hardly working) platform over to the clean and simple to use WishList membership platform. I highly recommend using John and WishList for any of your membership site needs.

Thabo Motsoahae

John is one of the best instructors I have come across, I learned a lot from his online tutorials.
