    I was once in a similar situation. A few years back I was living on my own, trying to make it in real estate. I had my app business on the side but it wasn't paying all the bills (income of like $1200 a month, maybe). I was $40k in credit card debt and slowly going through my savings. One night, I went to bed at 2am after working all day and for 30 minutes I tossed and turned, I couldn't sleep. I remember, I said to myself, "I literally can't afford to sleep."

    I got back up and started working. At that point I focused 100% on my app business because it was my only source of income and I knew there was high potential. 12, 14 or more hours a day, 6 or 7 days a week. I ended up doing around $225k that year, and I had very little overhead.

    I did great for a few years on that, then let it go when I partnered on a startup. Sank over $100k on that which pretty much flopped. Now I am back in a similar situation but working on new stuff. I think Richard Branson said it, business opportunities are like a bus route, a new one comes every 15 minutes.

    I still have my app business and I'm rebuilding it, working on a deal that could be huge, 6 to 7 figures a year. But as you're probably aware, development stuff can be slow. Also working on a new project on the side. I may post a thread documenting that process as well.

    This sounds, without me over thinking it, like a really nice outline of a 10 year plan.

    Sounds a bit slow lane though.
