Got first paying customer

Dean Fankhauser @bomeandean

I reached out to a bunch of 'partners' that I was looking to work for. As part of the email, I asked if they wanted to work 'closer' on any initiatives and that turned into them asking if they could pay to be promoted on the site.

It was difficult to negotiate based on almost no numbers, but now that the ball is rolling with one major customer, others want to jump in.
