Thanks for reading.

Consequently I get overwhelmed and rarely build any of the ideas I was thinking about.

Yeah, this sometimes happens to me too. I think it partially stems from there being this trend where you need open source everything you work on from the beginning.

By the time all of that happens, you throw your hands up in the air and call it quits before you even had a chance to write 1 line of code.

This is the web developer freelance business equivalent of spending a month creating business cards, an LLC and a fancy portfolio site when all you really need to do is talk to a potential client (which you could do in literally 10 minutes without any of that stuff).
