Accomplishments of 2014

I spend a lot of time, probably too much time, thinking about the things I don’t have yet or are missing from the picture. I’d like to take a little time to list some things I did accomplish in the last 12 months.


  • Took my wife on a vacation to Arizona and Vegas
  • Took my oldest son (age 4) on a father-son visit to a dinosaur museum and car museum
  • Got up to being able to do 50 push-ups at a time
  • Went from not being able to do a pull-up to being able to do 7


  • Raised Snip’s revenue to about $430/mo
  • Got Snip back to the first page of search results for “hair salon software”
  • Got 3 out-of-state Snip customers (the first 3 out-of-staters)
  • Got Snip’s online sales funnel to work for the first time ever
  • Improved engagement on the Snip site by adding Olark chat and “view demo” opt-in (thanks to a mentor’s suggestion)
  • Reached the milestone of 10 Snip customers
  • Straightened out Ben Franklin Labs’ positioning and USP, which as of January was wildly off course and ineffective
  • Earned 5 figures in a month for the first time ever (the source was consulting)
  • Raised my consulting rate from $X to $2X
  • Hired a design subcontractor for the first time ever
  • Hired programming subcontractors for the first time ever
  • Hired personal/admin assistants for the first time ever
  • Launched the somewhat popular educational site
  • Landed a gig working with one of the most well-known people in the Rails world
  • Moved into my own office, not a co-working space

I have a long list of goals for 2015 but I want to focus here on accomplishments. For the 3 or 4 people who read my blog, please feel free to share any accomplishments of yours in the comments.

    Way to go Jason. I am just catching up on my reading. I think Snip’s website is looking good.
    2014 was more a step back and clean up year, but 2015 is looking good!
