One day I had a kid. I called him Ethan. I was bored at home watching Ethan.
Had an idea for an online store. I had no money. Had to Google “How to create a website”. I made the site and launched it. None of my friends bought from my store. I was upset. They wanted me to create a website for them instead. So I did. They wanted me to create a website for their friends. So I did. Someone said “Can you teach me?”. So I did. People said you should do YouTube. So I did. Some of my work got blogged or recommended. I was approached by Essence Magazine to talk about black women in tech, even though I still don’t know what the heck I’m doing.
Ethan is almost 9. He is my muse. I haven’t been able to stop making and teaching websites since.
MORAL OF THE STORY: Don’t try and sell shit to your friends. And don’t ask me to do anything.
(Only joking! Ask me what you want, I’m waiting for ya. Let’s build!)
