“Rob Walling has a good post”:http://www.softwarebyrob.com/2009/01/07/expenses-you-dont-think-of-when-starting-a-business/ about all the expenses it’s easy to overlook when starting a software business. The most insightful line is this:
“The point of The Software Product Myth is that at some point you are going to have too few sales to support yourself monetarily, yet too much work to fit comfortably into your evenings and weekends.”
This rings true for me. Wii Transfer is too successful to abandon, but not successful enough that I can retire to a beach house. Luckily I love the “people I work with”:http://www.vitalsource.com/, but I’ll admit that running Riverfold on the side is making me a little bit nuts.
I guess the “good news” is that I’m pretty used to too much work and too little sleep.
