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).

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.
