Quick back story: A few months ago I was talking to my buddy Jake, who is a severe procrastinator, and also works from home like me.
I am sure most people here know it can be pretty easy to screw yourself over and not get anything done when working alone from home.
We tried an experiment where we got on skype together for a couple hours and just kept the video on while we worked.
We’d basically just message each other with every task to stay accountable. He was making a presentation, I was writing a blog article (which I usually procrastinate for months).
It worked insanely well—literally neither of us has ever been so productive.
Fast forward, I hired a designer and got a buddy to help build an app. It’s like a virtual study buddy on demand, for people who work from home.
I posted it in some FB groups and got about 200 obsessed users pretty fast.
I decided to leap and do it full time, and have had a hard time growing as fast as I need to break even. At this point I need some ideas to grow faster, and keep the dream alive, with limited bandwidth.
Would love some advice on how to grow something like this.
If you need some more color on what the site is and what it is about it is called Focusmate (www.Focusmate.com). I could use a boost. It’s a free site for now.
