What happened in week 9 and 10 out of 12 of scaling my business
There is light at the end of the tunnel.
Scoring the week
Another round of accountability!
My 12 Week Plan, scheduled to end on the 16th of October, has a singular goal: reach a turnover of 5000 EUR for Decode Estonian.
Currently, I’m sitting at
€3,660.41, out of which
€1,269.33 was earned in Week 38 and 39.
The new income is from receiving the money for all the tickets I sold in September 💪
The progress tracker is still here if you are curious about the details.
Week 38 and Week 39 had terrible execution scores, mostly because I was busy actually running workshops and had other things in my private life that occupied me a lot mentally and emotionally.
When I saw this email I felt:
surprised – I had no idea that the workshops were bringing in this much,
exhilarated - this is the first time in my life that I’m making money on the scale of “you could theoretically live off this” using my own skills.
At this point, I feel like I can live a poor existence without needing a single client to sell software development services nor do I need an employer.
A small taste of freedom.
⚙️ I’m still not quite happy with managing energy levels through the second half of the workshop - we often have to rush through the material.
✅ Giving workshops and seeing people get smarter in real time is still extremely motivating and fun. It is physically draining, but mentally the opposite.
❌ The next iteration of a teaching aid is taking shape in my head and as sketches in my notebook, but still not real.
