Long time lurker, first time poster. Sounds Cringe. Oh well.
It happened! I got my first sale from a random person! I have had some of my friends and family support my website which was very nice of them, but it’s just not the same as selling your product to some random person who wants it. I am absolutely ecstatic right now. It’s not the idea of a consistent revenue flow that’s making me happy, although that does help. It’s the validation that all the hard work is starting to pay off. So far, my friends and family are definitely enjoying my product and told me they were happy with the price as well. I know I have a long way to go. I need to get better at advertising. I always want to make my website look nicer. I need to upload tutorial vids… the list goes on. But this kindles my motivation. Just that someone out there, found my website, went through it and thought "bet, I want that right now" and purchased. It's a warm fuzzy feeling in my stomach that definitely isn't the celebratory whisky I am drinking right now. I feel now that no matter what, as long as I try, put in the effort, and always learn from my mistakes, that I will be successful. Success is relative and depends on your perspective but for me I will always try to keep my perspective positive. I digress, I just felt the need to share this news to a similar and likeminded community because I know you guys can vibe with how I’m feeling right now.
Hope you guys are doing well and staying healthy!
