The Hardest 5% of Your No-Code Project

Daily office hours and focused programs to give you "just enough help" with your no/low-code initiative so that you can break through the impossible parts - and ship.

About the Hardest 5%

No-code promises to be easy, but it still has hard parts that people don't tell you about.

In my experience, no-code/low-code projects have three parts.

  • 80% is work. You put one foot in front of the other, but it seems intuitive on its face.

  • 15% is hard. You do some research and experiment, and the project seems to yield slowly - often too slowly. One wonders, "is this how easy no-code is supposed to be?

  • 5% feels impossible - like you ran into a wall. "This just doesn't make sense!" In these moments, shipping is at its most precarious because you lose all-important momentum.

The 15% and 5% show up at different times for different projects. Sometimes the hard part is unsticking how to plan the data. Sometimes it's at the end, like shipping that mobile app to the Apple and Google stores. But whenever it hits, it is easy to feel despair.

You don't need all the answers.

My name is Ray Deck. I've been a founder, CTO, and consultant. Over 25 years, I have learned that the through-line for all these roles is that of a teacher or coach.

We mustn't think we have to possess all the answers. A lot of it is being able to step back and find the right question and mental model that breaks open that brutal 5%.

I created Statechange PRO to help you get past that 5% and ship their project by helping you help yourself.

We use office hours, forums, and the support of our fellow members to give you the tools to make the impossible 5% possible and that hard 15% tolerable. In short, make progress.

Our early days have shown the success of our model.

Founders and builders have cracked hard problems that previously nettled them for days and weeks.

But right now, as you'll see below, I'm looking for a specific person to join this small, intimate cohort of dedicated builders.

If you're serious about shipping your project and moving on to that exciting next step in your business, I'd invite you to read the page below and apply for membership.

I can't wait to learn with you.

I’m blown away by the insight you provided in today’s session. Already well worth the price of entry. Looking forward to the next Office Hours and more overall learning/progress. Thanks again!

In my opinion, you need to double the amount for this program. Seeing you in action you are a no-brainer to spend some good $$$ with to get some good service as you have shown me.

StateChange is high on value and worth every penny. Ray's ability to distill a very technical issue, problem, and turn it into a clear path, guiding you on the solution, while working through the problem in real time, is priceless. You actually learn from Ray, and others on office hours.

This stuff is hard - requiring knowledge of multiple disciplines of HTML, CSS, form submissions, APIs, webhooks.... It's great to have a single experienced resource that wants you to succeed getting your project out the door. State Change provides that.

We're Looking for a Few Good Builders

Requirements to Join our Community

Our commitment to “everyone ships” is ambitious. To achieve that, you must be ambitious, too. This is a done-with-you accelerated incubator. Our time and energy is limited, and the quality of your cohort is critical. If you don’t fit these criteria, please don’t apply.

  1. You’re not a fly-by-night founder chasing the “dream of no-code”
  2. You’re more interested in what comes AFTER you ship - not the process of building
  3. You’ll follow through to the end. There is no question you’ll put in the effort
  4. You’re not a perfectionist
  5. You’re smart, humble, and generous - you're here to learn, and if you can help someone else, you will.
  6. You're nice. Unkind members will be shown the door per our code of conduct.

There are NO technical requirements. You do not have to be a technical builder. That’s not required to ship fast.

We are currently in phase two and are accepting 1510 more builders

FAQ

What if the community doesn't work for me?

We think this is going to be a slam dunk value for members looking to make progress. But if in the first month you conclude this is not for you, reach out using the feedback form. We will process a full refund and part friends.

What if I need more help than this?

If you need professional help sooner than the next office hours or in a more confidential, one-on-one setting, you can schedule 1-1 coaching.

Have you been successful helping others?

We sure have! Peruse the testimonials from some of our customers who have made tremendous progress with relatively limited outlays of time and expense!

Can you build X app for me?

We are in the business of helping our members successfully ship their projects. We are not a development agency. (Though development agencies often call on us for help.) If you want to build, our community and services help
