Relate to this so hard. I feel like I'm still on the latter end of it but I keep finding the power to keep going. Best wishes to you!
Keep going - that's the only real challenge you have, to keep going.

There are moments where you'll give up and just say "f*ck it" for a few days, maybe even a week.

But come right back. The worst that could happen won't happen. Keep going.

I feel ya! I can't really say fck it for more than half a day as I at least need to keep up with the side hustle to pay bills, but I'm not going to give up ever. If I gave up as a young entrepreneur, I wouldn't have had the (positive) experiences I have now. And the negative ones are just lessons, I keep telling myself

I cannot believe my last update was in Nov 2019? Damn, time flies way too quick.

Anyway, lots of changes have happened since then.

Business-wise, traction slowed down greatly and now I'm investing even more (made a new website, updated existing version, prospecting more etc.) into the product.

I've gotten to a point where I want to give up on this idea, but I won't.

I want to push further; re-invest in LinkedIn ads again, explore what other value skews I can implement, find more hidden pains that I could solve which other competitors aren't really focusing upon.

It's tough because there is so much competition, and a majority of them are financially backed, therefore they can build things quicker and upgrade their value skews much faster. For example, my biggest competitor recently redesigned their entire brand within 2 weeks and it looks amazing.
Whereas it took me months to initially make something that looked better than their original website. Now I can't even compete with them on design/branding.

Also, I've recently had a lot of trouble with my Upwork developer, they haven't responded to any of my messages, which means that crucial features cannot be installed as quickly as I'd like. I'll likely need to get a new developer who can dissect the code so they can make the necessary updates. F*** pain.

But I feel that if I keep attacking the world with my desire, my will to succeed, eventually I'll get what I want. I'm pretty embarrassed that it's taking me this long to move the needle, I have a few one-time customers and they have been my biggest accomplishment to date.

On top of this, my family is full of leeches and just bad people - money constantly being drained from my pocket, I have to constantly protect the younger kids from being exposed to their dumbsh*t. I think I'll draw up a plan later today. I don't get how I'm one of the youngest people in the family, yet I make more money than everyone and am more sensible/responsible. If spirituality exists, then I'm definitely being served karma from a past life lol.

Starting a podcast on the side while I do this, would love to interview some members on this forum - no one in particular, as long as they have a business.
