Okay so here’s an idea I’ve been kicking around.
I kind of want to just work on something brand new with a buddy for a month or so. I would put my business into maintenance mode where I’m spend maybe an hour or two per day to keep things running (and now that I have some help with support that would be easier to do). But I wouldn’t be building new features during this time.
Maybe I’d even run a little paid ad campaign during that time - I have a paid campaign that did fairly well which I could just turn on.
So it’s basically a shiny object thing but couple of key differences. I’m not really under any illusion that I’m going to start something new and it’s going to take off in a month. It takes 2 years to get anywhere with a new business. So I would be going into it knowing that it was just purely for the purposes of taking a break for a month.
At first I was thinking I could team up with a buddy but most of my friends are busy doing their thing and wouldn’t really be able to take a month to work on something new.
So I was thinking maybe I could work with someone that’s just getting started on their product. I could bring a few things to the table - experience of having built/marketed/sold a SaaS app as well as probably some cash.
Maybe I take a little stake in the product in exchange.
Anyone ever done this kind of thing before or have any thoughts?
