I had an amazon product business in 2017....
I was manufacturing in China and ran into quality control issues. Reached the point where I decided to stop. 

While brainstorming ways to correct past mistakes for my next business, I discovered crowdfunding. I decided to only create products with proven demand. 

In Oct 2017, I took a month off from my full time job to create a Kickstarter campaign. Fortunately, the campaign was fully funded though it didn't make a lot of money.  

That Kickstarter got the attention of Touch of Modern. They reached out and asked to have my product featured on their site.

Things were looking good. 

We sold a lot at the event. A month later, someone with a small business asked to buy more. They had used it and wanted one for each of their employees. 

Re-order after using a product does wonders for the ego of a product developer. 

These adventures helped me understand that I need to focus more on marketing

That got me on Product Hunt.

Product hunt got me here. 

And here got me to Day 30 of writing every day

Happy One Month Anniversary.
