The Road to SaaS Revenue is Painfully Slow. Are You Prepared for It?

Of course ‘painfully’ is subjective, but the point is that almost all bootstrapped startups take longer to rampup than you’d like as a founder. That means a year or three of living in two worlds and juggling bill paying work with growing that side project.

The absolute best way to grow a side project into something big enough to sustain you is to have realistic expectations. A big dramatic switch from a 9-to-5 to a side project almost never happens overnight.

On a related note, it’s useful to remember that having something grow too fast means you’re going to be spending a lot of time playing catchup. So slow and steady isn’t always a bad thing as long as you’re ready for it.
