My first $15 online - Feeling so stoked! 🤩

Today, I received my first $15 online and I feel so stoked.

It is not like this is the first $15 I ever make. I have a well-compensated job from a startup I co-founded 5 years ago. Even more, we got acquired about a year ago.

Anyway, when I ponder the difference in feelings between my monthly comp and these $15, I feel like oh boy, I need this thrill more often. I need more side hustles. More indie hacks.

I just wanted to share this thrill.

I got these $15 through a "buymecoffee" link regarding my offer to perform ad-hoc subreddits analysis which I featured on this post.

Have a great day!

    I absolutely agree. My co-founder and I were recently reminiscing how that first $5 paying customer was the best feeling ever. It is that first one in who validates you're on to something .
