Anything considered a "hustle" and not necessarily a CENTS-based Fastlane

Hi there,

I am going to build a business around web platform that would connect people with different levels of knowledge in a particular area who would like to share/teach/train others in that area with people who would like to get better in it.

On one hand, I would get customers for the providers via the optimized platform so the provider who is good in something, but not in getting customers, still could get plenty of them. On the other hand, I would like to create a pretty big catalog of these providers with reviews and references. That means that the customer could choose the best fitting provider for him/her (not only by expertize in that particular skill but also by other factors which will be evident from reviews, eg. empathy.

I am pretty sure that the idea has really big potential. The problem is the creation of the platform itself...

I am a law student, strong in interaction with people (I am really looking forward to getting the providers engaged in my project and so on), but I have absolutely no experience with website creation. As I mentioned I am a student, so I have no relevant sum of money on my bank account (at least I have no student debts:)). What do you consider as the best option?

1) Learn all the process of website creation from A to Z myself and create the platform on my own.
2) Saving as much money as I can
(through the "standard" job) and hire some agency to do the tech work for me. Where can I find an agency with a great value/price ratio?
3) Find some "tech guy" who would start the business with me as a partner. Where to look for such a guy?


Thank you for any response!

Best regards
Tomas J.

3rd option seems like the best option.

1st one will take you a lot of time.

2nd is possible but it will cost you A LOT

You can try to find your guy on Reddit.

If you will need help with a quality logo design and branding, feel free to reach out.

Thanks for your reaction. Personally, I also consider the 3rd option as the best one, anyway I plan to learn the basics of web development just to understand the principles.

I will definitely try to dig deep into some subreddits in order to find the right guy.
