Why $100,000? why not aiming to become unicorn with hundreds of million dollars revenue and billion dollar valuation? Yeah, that what I think 3 years ago, I fall to startup world and I want to have a billion dollar company. Seeing Airbnb, Salesforce, and another unicorn was burning my entrepreneur spirit. I started many projects, a marketplace, and e-commerce business with targeting to reach a billion dollar valuation. And how the result? all my project was SHUT DOWN, pathetic right?
Did I regret it? no, absolutely not. I learned a lot, I gained a lot of experience which I never have before. I learn programming skill, sales technique, marketing strategy, and management skill. One biggest mistake which I have is I pick industry which I don’t passionate about. I want to have a software business, but 3 years ago I don’t have programming skill (I built e-commerce and marketplace business using WordPress). Now, I have the skill which I needed to start a software business. Did I still aim for a billion dollar valuation? no, I don’t care about my company valuation any more. What I really want is freedom, I want to work anywhere I want, doing what I want, and as long as I can have enough cash flow for my family, I’m happy, and $100,000 per year is enough for me.
