Nice chart, but learning matters more

It’s nice to see how something grows over time, especially when we put in the work.

In 2014, I took over operations for a small platform that connects digital creators to buyers (similar to Fiverr, but a lot more indie).

Here’s a beautiful chart

I did some numbers to determine if the investment was worth my time. So far, operations are financially solvent and we’re able to sustain a team of 3 contributors.

In terms of learning experience, I’d say this is the best part. I now know a lot more about Digital Ocean, PHP, Paypal and various other systems and microservices that make up this complex system. I’ve also learned that customer support is tricky but highly satisfying.

On to better years for the platform!
