The little Bootstrapper Calculator



A quick note to tell you that I made a quick little calculator to compute how many days of freelancing you need to bootstrap your product.

Check it out here, feedback most welcome!

5 weeks of vacation!!!


That’s the standard for employees in France :smiley: - I kept it on purpose, to show that it’s definitely doable if you have the right daily rate and to encourage people to enjoy long vacations.

I just pushed an update with pre-selected holidays durations (FR/US/YOLO).


Hah, we’re in the states and all the partners agreed to 6 weeks vacation. I thought we were being crazy generous to ourselves. Apparently we need to bump that up to 9 weeks. :slight_smile:
