Launched my first product today! 🎉Any support/feedback appreciated 💖

Today I launched ProjectiFi on Product Hunt: https://www.producthunt.com/posts/projectifi

It's a simulator for personal finance to help plan for financial independence and other life goals, without needing to link any of your real financial accounts.

If there's anything you'd like to do to show support or help spread the word, it would mean a lot!

      Thanks Joe. Once you check it out, I'd be curious to hear what you think!

        It is nice. I like the UI. It feels clean and simple. I'm curious how you plan on converting users. Once I have modeled a plan, why would I need to do it again?

          I'd say the monetization aspect is something I'm still open to suggestions on. I knew I wanted most functionality to be free, so that everyone could use the tool to develop insights about their potential life trajectory and trade-offs between different decisions, and I didn't want anyone to feel priced out of that experience. Likewise, I didn't want to bombard people with ads, and would never want to collect and sell data or anything like that. Currently, even more advanced features like Monte Carlo mode are available for free... I felt all this left me with few remaining monetization options, so I'm currently trying the model where data persistence (bringing more convenient repeat use) is one of the premium features, the idea being you come back to the tool when you have new decisions to consider, alternate plans/choices to explore, or other ideas related to life and finances you'd like to test.
