What JFDI really means

Spotted this perfect quote from Indy Hall alumnus and longtime badass, Kelani Nichole.

“Just fucking do it.

Find a sustainable means to get your ideas out into the world.

Skirt the institution until you can infiltrate.

Don’t imitate, there’s no point. Competition is useless, collaboration is everything.

Be humble, learn from mentors and get used to the fact right now that you will not be compensated for your time in the short-term…the art world is a long-term labor of love.”

Whatever your work of art is – big or small, personal or professional, creative or technical – this is how to get it done.

This will help make sure you can find the most useful resources. I respect your privacy & email. Absolutely no spam, and I won't ever share your data. Pinky promise! 🤞

Hey, thanks for reading!

Alex Hillman I am always thinking about the intersection of people, relationships, trust and business. I founded Indy Hall in 2006, making us one of oldest fully independent coworking communities in the world. This site is packed with the lessons and examples I’ve learned along the way. You can find me on Twitter, too! 🐦 Say hi.
