Once I go broke, which will happen, I'll just go back to work. I'm more about being happy and doing what I enjoy doing than I am about doing what doesn't make me happy just for the money.

Money doesn't make people happy. Finding your passion and doing it for the love of it will.

I have all day for a few years.

I think you missed the point of my prior e-mail. I do what I do because I enjoy doing it. I enjoy building out idea's, launching them and learning from the entire process. If something starts to get traction, I'll roll with it and invest allot more time in it.

If I was worried about making money, I would go back to my consulting business.

You don't have all day. You have a finite amount of hours before the money runs out and then you have to get a day job.

Identify a product that people or companies will pay for and get to work.

SendFil.es is still out there but honestly, the idea doesn't scratch an itch for users. In fact, it didn't even tackle a problem I had ;) It was just a great project to build that uses the Amazon Platform (S3), Heroku (Amazon EC2 ;) Rails, SideKiq, Bootstrap and other fun technology. At the moment I'm just working on a mobile application that I actually enjoyed using. Anonymous chat... what better way to let people be themselves with random people. It allows you to send images, video and text messages to random people and have a dialog with them.

I toggle back and forth between the mailing list and coding. It does slow me down, but I have all day to code. I've selected to break my day down by hours. Reading/Research, Coding, etc
