Well.. I suppose it was inevitable. My wife has given me an ultimatum. 6 months to take this business to $500 MRR, or quit.
Can’t say I didn’t see it coming. I mean for the last ten years she’s been very patient while I try new things, grow, learn, fail, learn more, and try something else.
I think a major part of my failures are I quit too soon; chase the next cool think. Never letting an idea mature and grow.
I honestly believe I’m on the right track now with TokyoSpark (https://tokyospark.com). But I have 6 months to get to $500 MRR.
TokyoSpark is $7/mo... the membership I just launched a couple weeks ago. Right now it’s curated research to hand-pick eats and sights for members to discover in Tokyo.
There are exclusive, members-only, Japanese language courses in the works. And members will get discounts on artwork of Japan.
Currently one active subscriber, 45 in various stages of an email funnel.
What would you do? What’s the 20% to get 80% there?
Ugh, I’m nervous. I reeaallly don’t want to fail again.
