This was a great and lively discussion! I’d like to thank all of our commentators for taking time out of their day to join Jackie and I in this great discussion about selling software. Hopefully we can plan another get-together like this on additional topics. If you have any ideas of what you’d like covered, please feel free to let us know using our contact page.
Also, if you have other Amazing ways to sell software that you thought should have been mentioned, please add a comment to the video. There’s so many alternatives these days that it makes the head spin!
Recently I made a decision to stop treating my “automation business” as a hobby and try and develop it. I was sitting watching a ton of videos on how to grow my YouTube channel when it donned on me:
Was that really the best place for me to be spending my time?
I then fleshed out various ways to make money with AutoHotkey from my automation business and came up with different ways to quantify their potential. I then reviewed this spreadsheet with a few people and finally decided to share this in an AutoHotkey podcast with Jackie Sztuk. I think y’all will find this interesting & helpful. If you disagree with the “weights” i applied, then create your own spreadsheet and apply YOUR weights! BTW: next week’s podcast is equally impressive. Se dive deep into column L (Create and sell software) and bring in some guest speakers like: Tank, Jean Lalonde, and RaptorX.
Teach your kids about saving money. Quantify how much each thing costs. THEY will forgo things…
Round-up everything you buy to even $5. All extra money you don’t spend goes into savings
Pay very close attention to recurring costs and large 1-time costs!
Choose your college & degree wisely. Well-known names don’t offer as much as you might think. There’s a huge variance in the cost to getting each type of degrees which has NOTHING to do with how much you can earn for each degree
Also consider trade schools. Often they are a better fit with far less debt
