The story behind Faybl

I’m Chima (@chmanw) the Founder of faybl and it’s a product I’m really hoping will change the way people feel about themselves for the better. The product is an achievement-focused journal which encourages you to start journaling using only the moments that made you feel positive/proud/happy. The aim of this is to create a history of proud moments/achievements that you can look back on to build your self-confidence, retrain a negative internal voice and create momentum to try achieve bigger and better things.

 

I wanted to build faybl because, after lockdown, I knew I was ready to pivot my career from full-time employee to SaaS owner. The only problem was I felt fear and doubt more than excitement and energised, and the only thing that made me feel like I could even walk this path was remembering past achievements and using the feeling of excelling as momentum. I then thought, “Someone else could benefit from this!”

 

I’ve built a product that allows and encourages users to journal using their past achievements/ proud moments. A key feature is reminding users of their past achievements on a schedule of their choice. I’m also teaching users through articles about building/maintaining self-confidence, motivation and a positive internal voice. I want to build a community of positive and supportive people, all helping each other build and maintain a positive internal so people can smash their goals and become the person they’ve always wanted to be.

 

In terms of challenges – honestly, figuring out what I should be doing next; lol I know it sounds silly but sometimes it feels like there’s so much to be done, but where do I start? And another thing is marketing because I’m a dev by trade, so it’s an entirely new arena, but I’m enjoying it so far!

The story behind Llama Life

To say I love productivity tools is an understatement! I love understanding the systems behind tools, and the habits and psychology people use to get things done.

I built Llama Life because I was diagnosed with ADHD about 10 years ago and ever since then have been trying to find solutions to help increase my focus and get work done.

But I just couldn’t find a tool that worked the way I wanted it to. I found plenty of tools that helped me MAKE lists, but I wanted something that would actually help me work THROUGH my list.

I discovered that setting a fixed amount of time for each task gave me a strange sense of calm. It also gave me the mental space to focus on ONE thing at a time. And this is what Llama Life is designed to do!

With Llama Life, my end goal was to create something that would provide you with a feeling of calmness and control (and also fun!). I hope I’ve achieved this. Thanks for checking it out, and if you have any feedback or feature requests you can find me on Twitter @threehourcoffee or drop me an email at hello@llamalife.co.

PS – As for why it’s called Llama Life…well, that comes from a trip I did to Peru in 2018. I was lucky enough to visit a small village, and chat with some of the locals there. They had no electricity or running water, but damn they had a lot of llamas! At the time, one thing that stuck me was how peaceful, calm and content they all were, and when it came to naming this app, I wanted to replicate that feeling. And so…β€œLlama Life” was born.
