Hit over $2000 in one month (see edit)

Pete Codes @petecodes

Edit! At the end of the month I got a confirmation from a client who have since postponed payment. So I have to reduce October's figure to $1,693 ☹️ - I'll only post figures in future when the money has actually been processed. 💰 I was acting in good faith but I want to be super transparent. 😎

I am elated that I have now got $2,032 in revenue for October just 11 days after I hit the $1,000 benchmark! I've still got a few days left to get more sales this month so I won't be slacking. 😀

I interview developers without Computer Science degrees about how they've been successful without the traditional route into tech. Most of the money has come from website and newsletter sponsors with a small amount from affiliate links as well.

Each deal I do boosts my confidence and energy and helps with the next one. I've been listening to the IH podcast episode with Steli a great deal and it's really helpful.

Oh and as I mentioned on Twitter earlier, I was unemployed until March this year and then making minimum wage in June until I quit my job to launch No CS Degree and work on it full time. You can check my open page with my revenue and traffic stats.
