10K in 50 Days

10K in 50 Days

We recently achieved a major milestone for our company. After 50 Days of operation we reached $10,000 in revenue! ???

By our best estimate, we’ve consumed 175 cups of coffee since our humble beginnings on February 23rd, 2016.

coffee ad nauseamWe’ve committed 60 hours to sale efforts, 20 hours to administrate efforts (taxes, banking, etc.), and 19 hours to strengthening our brand.

Hours DistributionWe’ve worked multiple back-to-back 12 hour days, put in numerous hours over the weekend, and have adjusted to a life of being always on call to help our clients out when they need it. At a standard rate of $25 an hour, it takes about 400 clients hours to pull in $10,000. Those 400 hours divided over 50 days equates to 8 hours a day. Given the nature of running our own business, we have worked countless 9, 10, 12, and occasional 14 hour days to make time for our sales efforts, administrative necessities, and brand development.

Firedove Technology is on a very positive trajectory. From starting out with zero brand recognition, enough funds to purchase a laptop,  software, and few other odds and ends, and no office space, we are extremely pleased with the current state of our company.

We attribute our success to our fair pricing and high quality of service. We’d like to thank our significant others for not only putting up with the madness of starting a company, but wholeheartedly embracing the rollercoaster that comes from being engaged to entrepreneurs.

This is just the beginning for Firedove Technology. We’d be foolish to assume that anything will get easier from this point on. We will continue to work hard. We will continue to have long days.

At the end of the day, that hard work enables us to fly with our own wings as entrepreneurs, and we couldn’t be happier.

The data shows that business owners and consumers in Spokane appreciate fair pricing for their website development, graphic design, IT support, and data analysis.

The data shows that Firedove Technology is here to stay.
