The on-the-fly startup

UPDATE: I started up this website right after writing this. On-the-fly startup became a real thing.

The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.

I am a bit tired of driving. It might have something to do with the 23 000 kilometres I drove since November 2016. I drove through Nova-Scotia, Prince-Edward-Island, Quebec, Ontario, Yukon, Alberta, BC, Montana, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, California, Baja California Norte, Baja California Sur, sailed the Sea of Cortez, crossed the Sea of Cortez with the Jeep to Sonora, Sinaloa, Nayarit, Jalisco, Guanajuato, Mexico, Puebla, Oaxaca, Tabasco, Chiapas (Special mention to San Cristopher de las Casas. A true gem in North America!), Guatemala, El Salvador (what a wonderful country), Honduras (1.5 hours in the country), Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama. I threw the Jeep in a forty footer (40ft) container to Cartagena, Colombia. I flew Panama City to Medellin to Cartagena, rested in this hot colonial town, and waited for the email saying that the Jeep's ready to go.

A ton of paperwork later, I drove from Cartagena to Plato, spent the night in a random parking lot next to a well lit restaurant lot. The next day I met it to San Pedro de la Tigra, which is one of my favourite place on Earth. 

I eventually made it to Bucaramanga where I filled my belly with delicious espresso and a copious amount of helado. A few days later and a few pound gained, I made it to Medellin, where I am right now, writing these lines. 

I'm listening to Leonard Cohen, his profound voice inspiring me to give you some updates, dear reader.

So I have decided to develop an app for iPhone. I have launched to motivate me to go and reach for my dream. 

The on-the-fly startup is my own little experience. Is it possible to become a multi-millionaire dude by learning to code on the fly, while travelling barefoot in a jeep in Colombia ? That is the hundred million dollars question. 

Coding is the hardest thing that I challenged myself to. It is incredibly hard to learn. Nothing seems to work, even if I follow tutorial and copy/paste a load of code. Why ? 

Well, the good news is that not everybody can be coders or programmers. If making iPhone apps would be so easy, everybody would do it. That is my brick wall right now. I need to get over it. I am working everyday on learning coding on Ionic 2 and Swift. 

This is the Step 1 of The On-The-Fly Startup. Step 2 will come in the future. One wall at the time.
