How I grew my Shopify micro-SaaS to $25k MRR and 20k users in 14 months

14 months ago, my co-founder Sankalp and I set out to build a business that can sustain our livelihood while allowing us the freedom to live life on our terms.

When we started, we each had roughly 12 months of savings to survive on, assuming we made $0. Hence our minimum goal was to make $1,500/mo and the case where we would be celebrating with champagne was set to $3,000/mo.

We launched our app on April 24, 2019. The first paid plan was launched on June 4, 2019. Around the same time, we got featured by Shopify. Here's a link to the app if you want to check it out.

14 months later, we grew past $25,000 in MRR while remaining a 2 person team.
