Quit job, moved to Canada and Hyper Hardcore Year —Recurring Revenue $3,000 / month Challenge
In May 2nd, 2019, I quit my job and moved to Vancouver, Canada🥶
🍁 Why Vancouver?
Vancouver is one of the cities which have very active startup scene.
There may be not so many world-wide famous startups from Vancouver, but still a nice environment for them.
I just wanna get into that kind of environment and here I am!!
🤑 About this challenge
If you know Andrey, you know what this is. Yes, this is totally inspired by Andrey’s Hardcore Year.
Why $3,000? Because I am in Vancouver, not Bali like Andrey is…
The rent is CAD750 for small den and the price of everything is as high as Tokyo (and tastes are much better in Tokyo).
I can get only the student visa and COOP because I already used the working holiday visa 6 years ago.
In short, I have to make MONEY💰!!
I had worked as a Software developer in Tokyo for 4 years and have been doing personal projects about for 6 years. Yes, I love creating things.
I think that the indie maker’s way is for me to make revenue👍.
😈 Cowardice and Fear
Even this moment, while writing this article, I am feeling fear like…what if I can’t make money and can’t achieve my goal.
What is the reaction of the people around me?
I will lose my confidence and never try a new thing?
I am scared of the worst future AF right now.
However, I also feel that I need to get over this otherwise my life can’t get more interesting.
👨💻 This is the time to try being Indie Maker
I hardly heard the word “Indie Maker” when I was in Japan and couldn’t find that kind of person around me.
Then I found people like Andrey and Pieter Levels on the Internet.
They are so cool and that’s something I wanna try to be!!
Fortunately(?), I quit my job this April and have much free time.
Now, this is the perfect timing to do that!!
I am going to be as open as possible about my result of this experiment.
So, anyone can see my status anytime.
Here are the parameters
・Period: 2 Mar 2019–1 Mar 2020
・Goal: $3,000 / mon revenue
・Progress in WIP Chat
・Work place: Vancouver public library and random cafes (When I make enough revenue, I’d like to go to Coworking space).
