This is part of a weekly journal I'm keeping about my side-hustle, SendView.
With everything going on, the side hustle has definitely been where I’ve spent less time than usual.
One of the main goals behind this business was the fact that I didn’t want to just trade hours for dollars. In other words, I wanted to be able to step away at any moment, at least for a while, and it would continue to run itself as normal.
This small step back from things has been a good test. And so far, aside from a couple emails I answered, it’s passed.
Along the way I’ve also let myself worry less about spending money on ads because the ads are doing the work instead of me. Letting growth continue without quite as much hustle from me and Patrick.
The thing I have been doing a little more of? Thinking bigger. Looking for ideas that will 2x our revenue, not grab 2-3 more users. Maybe only 1 out of 10 ideas will actually do so, but we saw the possibility of that with one potential partnership a couple months ago and realized, in hindsight, I wasn’t even thinking on that scale to have seen that opportunity before it fell in our lap.
Need to be more proactive about trying to find what’s out there that could make huge strides for our growth.
A few ideas are coming together. Stay tuned.
