My main goal: Have 1000 recurring customers

In my early days I thought starting the business itself was the hard part, but now recently starting my third company I know that's not the case. What's the real hard part: Selling and getting customers. Having 1000 recurring customers involves both of that. 

To keep motivation, I have split my main goal into smaller ones and there are currently two milestones I have reached that I'm proud of to have executed:

  1. Making the product itself (it was hard).
  2. I recently started to get my first recurring customers (I made something that people like).

For me, setting up website, changing nameservers and all, then building homepage and come up with final design and color settings is the most satisfying moment.

Thank you for asking.

I'll be honest when I hit my first $14K month with just web design services, it was a milestone that was truly remarkable. I was no longer hoping and believing that I could make this work, I was seeing evidence that this is working. Of course, there are other amazing milestones that are not monetary and mean a lot to me. But to keep going in my business this one metric was absolutely outstanding for me.
