I have been working on a Saas for insurance agents. I build a way for them to add their team, calculate commissions and bonuses and give them reports on how they and their team are doing.
About a year ago I saved up a ton of money to quit. I have been living off my savings and minimal freelance to pay my basic bills.
I wish I could tell you that it was "all worth it" - not really. It was really freakin' difficult to get to this point and if I was doing it for the money I would have quit so long ago.
I know I could probably give 100 things that I learned but the number one thing that I had to learn that almost had me quit this idea in January is..
Just because I had discipline in my full time, does not mean I will have discipline in going full on my side project. I was waking up for months at 6:30 am and getting to work by 7:30 am. That was "easy" - now I am having difficulty getting up at 8 and starting by 9.
A boss that will ask you what and why
Consequences of laziness
Those must be replaced. YOU must manager yourself and give yourself those items. I'm still having trouble finding ways to reward / "punish" myself for good/bad days of work.
Just because I did well in structure does NOT mean I would do well in non-structure.
This community is awesome and has helped me so much! If there is interest I would love to show you all how I have used Trello as a contact management system and project management system - let me know!
