Then I founded TwinsGames and 42games. Fish Ball is one of the most successful games I built.

As an IT developer, we create values and sell them.

My golden time to build things is from 7pm to 1am at night. The time that I free my mind from my school/work.

What values we can create? How about recording some sound effects to sell? How about creating web site templates? Or powerpoint templates? May be writing a 10-pages PDF e-book? There are lots you can create and share.

When you sell your values, you may gain money, reputation, chances or new job.

Here are some examples on what you can sell and what revenue to expect.

Play and do experiments often.

Don’t be afraid of mistakes. Learn from the mistakes.

Remember, The day you get your product done is the day 1. It’s the beginning.

Selling your product is another big topic.

Once your apps get approved and on app store, make user to update them very often. Fix bugs, improve copy writing, new improvements, whatever. Just upload another build once the last build is approved by Apple.
