Reached Ramen Profitability

cdmwebs

SpeedBook is now making $4000 a month, enough to cover my rent and expenses!

Probably the biggest thing that helped me get here was charging more. I charge companies around $400 a month, so I only needed 10 paying customers.

This is super exciting, because it means that I can theoretically afford to quit my job and go full-time on SpeedBook. But I'm not sure if I'll make that jump just yet…
