Hockey stick revenue growth

Saw a tweet recently about ConvertKit closing in on $2m ARR. It wasn’t long ago I remembered seeing Nathan write about hitting $30k per month, so I did some digging and reading on old blog posts.

From $1k to $30k to $170k in about 3 years. Insane!

A few takeaways:

  1. The power of cold calling
  2. Being ‘invested’
  3. Hard work

One other thing that jumped out in 30k post was zero profit on $30k revenue which seems shocking but I guess growth dollars can eat profit quickly during ramp up.

Nathan is an absolute winner indeed. I show his metrics to everyone on my team, to show how it’s possible to bootstrap a foundation for a while that goes exponential eventually.
