Starting a New Challenge: From $0 to $100k

It's been a while since I did something "crazy" and I had to come up with an idea, so I created myself a new challenge which I'm calling $0 to $100k.

For the next ___ (insert days required to complete), I'm going to do my best to come up with ideas for projects, build them, and hopefully monetize them, until I'll reach the $100k revenue mark. 🤞

Also, I've been playing the YouTube/Live Streaming game for a while now so I thought that it would be pretty fun to do all of this while being live on my YouTube channel, every day (Monday to Friday) in front of my audience while sharing the entire journey. (Too crazy? 🤔)

I'm bringing the Build in Public strategy to the next level. Maybe. Maybe someone already did this before and I don't know about it...

To be honest, I have no idea how this is going to go. No idea how much it will take me either. I also don't have much of a plan, so yeah... You can see how prepared I am for the challenge. 🤣

The good thing though is that I'm very excited about big challenges and they motivate me to go to the finish line, no matter what. So that helps.

I ran 422 days in a row. Created 100 projects in 100 days. Made a new record for completing the freeCodeCamp curriculum. Got to 100k subs on Youtube. Etc. You can probably see a pattern there...

Out of all the challenges though, this seems to be the one which I feel to be the least prepared for so if you have any suggestions, feedback, ideas, pep talks, I'd be more than happy to read them.

If you want to follow along, you're welcome to join the live streams or check out the recap videos.

Should be a fun journey. Right? 😆

Last but not least, I find the indie hackers community to be very inspiring and motivating. All of the stories you're sharing are amazing and I want to be a part of it too! 🔥

    I’ve had the same exact idea! I am working on my website and blog right now to do this too, was going to launch it next week. I am definitely in!

        🙌 I am right now in debate on what I should do tomorrow.

        Today I launched an app I made for myself this morning to track my progress for this challenge, you can check it out here. It’s def not a good app right now, but I plan to improve it as I use it.

        I will probably finally start using my domain I bought months ago, nocodesolutions.io to create tutorials, sell components and consult.

    Quite cool to see you here too Florin, welcome !

    I'll probably check out your channel from time to time to see where you're going with this :)

    Hi Florin,
    Nice one, good luck!
    Fellow indie hacker from Cluj-Napoca here.

    Curious if you'd be interested in adding a bit of "coolness" to your videos - like, instagram-like bubbles, and so on. Pretty much anything to make your videos more appealing. Let me know!

      Hey 👋
      Nice to meet you neighbor!

      Yeah, my YouTube game needs a complete revamp. Thumbnail. Title. Storytelling.

      1. 1

        Hehe ;) When you're ready with the revamp concept, give me a shout.

        If you'd like to use my video editor, I'm certainly willing to tweak it for you, if you have some specific needs.
        (also, in the mean time, I'm working on some pretty cool ideas of adding text effects beyond easy 😁)

        Good luck!

    Best of luck! 🚀 Do you want to hit that mark within a specific timeframe?

    1. 1

      I haven’t set a timeframe. Do you think I should?

  6. 2

    Florin! Love your youtube man

    This is going to be 🔥,
    Either success or failure you're going to inspire a lot of people by live steaming it.

    1. 2

      That’s my hope too!

  8. 2

    Wow this is gonna be awesome Florin!

    Can’t wait to watch some of these! 👏

    Awesome goal Florin!
    Excited to watch you progress through and crush it!
