I know how it feels.
Eight years ago I was lying on a green carpet from IKEA in my rented apartment in Moscow, staring at the ceiling and wondering why I was so poor.
I constantly changed my full-time jobs, getting a slightly bigger salary over time. But my income always remained average.
I went to mediocre restaurants, wore mediocre clothes, rode the subway, and didn't understand what I needed to change to make decent money.
I wanted to change it so bad.
Then I realized if I wanted to make 10x more money without selling my time, I should try to make a digital product. I just needed to find a problem worth solving, build a project around it, and make money.
I started from making UI design kits and moved on to make my first profits shortly afterward.
First they grew enough to cover my rent, then they allowed me to quit my office job and stop troubling with freelance work. This project covered all my expenses, and by the third year my partners and I made our first million.
