Honestly, your on the right path dude! Unfortunately, this shit just takes time. Too much time.
I mean, I am now into year 3 of my startup (can I even call it that now?) and some months it still goes to shit and I sweat over bills and rent and whether I should pluck up the courage to ask someone for help. Your playing a long game, so don’t give in yet.
I think the multiple revenue streams is the best shout, the trick is of course turning what you do into those streams…
Man, your writing is great, look back at even when we all ‘met’ to now, and the fans, money and claps you’ve gotten since, something will come from it for sure that can hopefully provide at least some kind of stable footing for you!
