I am in the process of entering the mobile app arena. I’ve thought about doing so for some while, but with two young kids time to do so is fairly limited. What finally gave me the motivation were three things:
- The first was an article my dad sent me. The article says that good software developers are the most important commodity in the current economy and you should invest in them. I am good software developer—I need to invest in myself!
- Secondly, I was looking at my accomplishments for the last year and I realized my kids are old enough that I do have some time to follow my own interests, it is just a matter of what I choose to use it for. I am going to do less reading, less sewing, and focus my computer time to be development related.
- Thirdly, I have an online friend whose husband is doing well selling mobile apps. Nothing like success in close proximity to motivate you.
