I would like to hear about your first sale and first customer. How it happened and how you felt about that?
Let me start with my story. I remember well my first sale because it was yesterday.
I don't know if you felt that way but I was thrilled and excited.
Three days ago I launched my project (https://mileofads.com) here on IndieHackers. I am selling inch-height advert slots, the first one was bought by my sister so I don't count her as a proper customer(sorry sis!). And yesterday's night I woke up, checked my phone, and there it was. New advert on my website!
I was so thrilled I couldn't sleep for the rest of the night. It feels good and weird - someone who you don't know from another part of the world believed in your idea... I hope you get used to it over time :)
Can't wait to read your story!
