About me: 20 years old CS student and this is my first attempt at business

1. What problem am I solving ?
- Procrastination and unproductivity among students (and others)

2. How am I solving it?
- I'm creating a blog with 52 articles teaching you
productivity habits, concepts and principles and how to apply them in your daily life.

At the start I'm writing only 1 article per week so reader doesn't get overwhelmed and actually have the time to implement what has he learned.

Example articles would be:
- "Not to do list and it's benefits"
- "The pareto principle and how to use it"
- "How to start NoFap and increase productivity"

3. My Unique selling point (USP)

Every article:
- has habits or concept that is scientifically proven to work
- in depth explanation why it works (but not very long)
- how to apply it in practise
- example how it is done
- and mayle quote at the end to motivate them

4. Execution
I will create landing page that says launching soon and explaining the benefits
and collecting email and also giving away something for free.
Will promote the page on reddit and other platforms.

What are your thoughts and how can I skew relative value (since idea and problem are kind of very general...)?

It is a fastlane business , but it violates the commandment of entry . Doesn’t mean you can’t succeed, but make sure you put yourself far ahead of the competition. Good luck man !

Commandment of entry and control has been breached but you can still stay ahead of the competition and post exciting contents.

I'm not sure if students like to read about something they already don't want to do.
Since you're CS student, make an app.

Yes, perhaps a reward like app where you study for 45 min and then it lets you play a game for 10. Could be useful
