I’m a programmer who’s been working with my partners for 9 months on a project that turns out, has serious legs. Our pre-launch a month ago blew our expectations. The response on social media has been incredible. It’s a fintech app for my country of origin, which desperately needs it. Without going into details and to sprinkle some (alot of) drama on it, this could very well be the entire point of my existence.
There is much work to do before opening to the GP. We’re expected to open the floodgates soon and I am so swamped with peripheral work that I am afraid of not delivering for a lack of time and focus. I work fulltime on another job and I am a complete wreck with my personal finances and couldn’t even cover 2 months of my rent if I were to quit, let alone eat. We got a little round of angel funding to keep the lights on for 6 months, but it explicitly excludes salaries. It’s only for operating expenses.
I don’t know WTF to do. I have the balls to do just about anything, I just don’t know if it’s sensible to do so… I’m 35 and I would literally be living in Central Park by December, eating at the soup kitchens for god knows how long while we get in the green. Let alone have any social life or pay any other bills.
Anyone been there? Some words of wisdom would be awesome.
