Full time on mah app!


#1

Hey guys, today is day 1 working full time on my app. Been bootstrapping for about two years and ramping down my day job gradually.

Woot. Living the dream!


#2

Congratulations! :smiley:


#3

Congrats! :smile:

What was the main reason that made you go full time with your app?


#4

Thx guys :smile:

I got the revenue up high enough to pay the bills. :smile:


#5

Great, now get back to work! (And by that, I mean me.)


#6

Well done. It is a lot easier to make real progress when you are full time.


#7

Congrats!

I’m curious to know what your growth curve looks like.


#8

Thanks @Andy!!

Thanks @scojo here you go.


#9

I noticed your revenue started ramping up a lot after this past July. Did you start doing anything differently that caused this?


#10

I think at that point I moved from a deployed module to SaaS, and so the setup time per customer was a lot lower and I started promoting it more. Nothing too mysterious :smile:


#11

Congrats, good luck, don’t lose your sanity, and if you figure out any of the EU VAT bull @#$%, let us all know! :smile:


#12

Darn impressive! Thanks for sharing.


#13

Congrats! Well earned.


#14

Thanks boss :slight_smile: Your help via podcasts and articles as well as the help of a bunch of other bootstrappers was huge, so thanks for all that you do!


#15

That’s awesome man, congratulations. I’m jealous and look forward to being in your shoes one day :smile:


#16

Thanks buddy. I know the feeling - I remember being super jealous of all the people that had “made it”. And I still am! All I know for sure is that I don’t quite feel like I’ve “made it” yet. Best of luck on your product. Let me know if you’d like some feedback or anything some time.


#17

Congratulations! Hope to be there one day as well :thumbsup:


#18

Congratulations! Well done


#19

Nice one! Time to buy yourself a :hamburger: and :beers:, then get back to it!

How about an update on how it has been going? Any any tips for us starting out?

I’m now one week into a new start on this entrepreneurial journey. (https://medium.com/@GlobalWJ/today-is-my-first-day-as-an-entrepreneur-2842f194b93a)
