Hit the six figure club!

Just took a few payments today that tipped us over $100k between my two businesses. It's split right down the middle with The Match Artist at about $53k ARR, and Midwest Streams(SaaS) at $48k ARR.

This has been a long road to get here, but I'm pretty excited to finally see some fruits of the labor.

I never thought in my entire life that I would own a photography company. I'm a horrible photographer, and my expertise is in software development. However, when I had the idea for The Match Artist I just couldn't believe that there was nothing on the market. The concept made so much sense. It's no secret that most men struggle with online dating. There are a few reasons for this, but one of those reasons is because most guys suck at taking pictures! I was one of those guys. My pictures were really bad, and my friend who was a wedding photographer took my pictures. It instantly 10x the number of girls swiping right on me. I eventually met my girlfriend on Tinder, and we've been dating ever since.

After I met my girlfriend, I asked my wedding photographer friend to start The Match Artist with me. He agreed and we have been hustling since that day.

Don't limit to yourself to tech when thinking about entrepreneurship. In fact my tech skills have been just as much of a benefit in this photography company as they are in my SaaS. We're able to do all sorts of creative things with our marketing and website because I can code.

I'm pretty excited about hitting this milestone. I'll be taking my girlfriend out to a nice dinner tonight. Then tomorrow I'll start working on the next goal which is to grow both companies to 100k on their own.
