$35k MRR! Hit our stretch goal for the year!

We've officially doubled in revenue since I decided to go full time in December.

Letting go of control is hard but it's for the best.

Every time I hear Intercom beep, I have to stop myself from chatting back instantly to allow our staff member to do it. I thought this would get easier but it didn't so much so that I had to delete the app from my browser and phone. Turns out this was the best thing I could have done. Sales are up and he's becoming really comfortable talking potential customers through the sales process. It's also freed me up to continue work on v2.

We've just set a new goal of $45k to end the year. So far we are a few hundred overpaced.

Also, I just moved to Sydney so if there are any Sydney Indie Hackers, I'd love to connect!

    Great read! Would love to have a quick chat if you've got 30 mins free at some point as I've been playing with the idea of doing something similar in a different market (and different country) :)

    Nice! So there are limits of how much one can earn solo - congrats on having new employee! Hope it will propel growth a lot :)

      I think so. We could probably have continued to grow but I suspect the rate would have slowed.
