About the Sabbatical
In late 2016 I found myself feeling de-energized in my CTO job and decided I needed a change.
The result is what I called my solopreneur sabbatical—a six month exploration into the world of solo-entrepreneurship as I attempted to launch a product and earn money from it.
I made a site that makes it super easy to make printable place cards for a wedding, and even made a few bucks from it. The site pretty much runs itself now and generates a small amount of steady income for me.
During the sabbatical I wrote regularly about my progress, something that I attempt to keep up despite having returned to more steady work.
I hope that other aspiring solopreneurs or burnt-out developers can get inspiration or advice from my story and do something exciting and different in their lives! Also I love hearing from people, so get in touch if you want to chat!
