It’s been 5 months since I left my job in March 2018 and decided to focus on making my own products full time for 1 hardcore year to get $1,000 MRR.

Since that time I launched 5 products that earned $5,000 in total gross revenue.

TL;DR

Also each month I feel up with a revenue table for each product.

I opened donations via PayPal and made Patreon page so anyone who likes what I’m doing could donate $2 or more to buy me a pack of ramen.

It’s not a software product but I include this into my products list because I put in a lot of energy in these articles so for me it counts besides, it’s making money.
