Boxy Suite is 1 year old (and why it's important)

Fabrizio Rinaldi @linuz90

I remember when we started working on Boxy Suite, what feels like 2 years ago (but it's more like 1.5). Me and @frankdilo still had a full time job, but this was a passion project and we poured our souls into it.

We worked on it many late nights and weekends, and I must admit that, in hindsight, it was one of the biggest challenges of my life. But this product, the revenue it brought, and the journey it started, are the reason why we were able to leave our jobs and start our startup adventure.

We officially launched it exactly one year ago, so today feels very special. Boxy Suite has been profitable from the start, but we spike during some months, we also see some weak sales sometimes. But almost exactly one year after launch, as we recently wrote here on IH, it broke the 4K MRR barrier, so we're more excited than ever about its future. 🚀

Boxy Suite is truly special also because, by sustaining us, it allowed us to explore other projects and areas, and that's also why this year we've been able to launch Unreadit as well. So, here's to another year of Boxy Suite. And thanks so much to the IH community, you have always been incredibly supporting and encouraging! 🙏
