This was long overdue and I'm so excited to be here! To wake up at a normal time, work during the day, and spend time with my family in the evening is incredible!
Here's the journey I took to get here.
I started writing code as a hobby to help me with various client work.
I took on a few free customers and kept improving the product. I worked on the platform for about 5 hours a month.
I started taking payments in July and had half my customers quit the same day. We ended the year at $900 MRR. I was working roughly 10 hours a month on the product.
I started to get involved in Facebook groups and helping people with website questions and this resulted in a lot of growth. We did around 150 customers that year. I was working 5-10 hours a week. We ended the year around $6000 MRR.
The growth caught up to me. I was working 10-20 hours a week in addition to my regular day job. We did 338 customers this year. I rarely slept more than 5 hours a day and was always awake and working by 6:30 AM every day. We ended the year at around $19,000 MRR.
I put in notice, quit my job and am full time as of this week. We've done 50 customers already this year and are growing rapidly. We are currently at $21,000 MRR and adding around $1500 a month.
The future is bright! I can't wait to update this in a year.
