Like clockwork, the new posts arrive almost every day: "Do you think it's possible?" ... "How do I make money?" ... and, "I'm stuck without progress - what now?" From a distance, Unity is a shining beacon of opportunity bringing thousands of developers and artists to her shores. And, here is the answer to their questions: One day, I was working on my prototype, when my wife said to me, "You've been messing around with that thing for too long." I argued that I had made really great progress and had a lot of neat features to show off. Though, in my heart, I knew I was far from finished. My wife replied, "Build something in 6 weeks. Anything at all, so long as you finish it." And after she threw down the gauntlet, she said, in a softer voice, "You need this." Of course, I knew there was no way I could finish anything in 6 weeks, so I countered, "Gimme 8 weeks!" And, in the end, it took me 9. I finished my first product, shipped it to Apple, and sent it out into the world! It was a crappy product, and yet, there it was, in the real world, for all to see. It flipped a switch in my head that changed my outlook. And now, 18 months later, I have 5 products, with 2 more in the works. I'm earning real money, and my products have touched 70,000+. I needed that boost from the first product to prove I could do this. As she loves to hear me say, 'My wife was right.' Here's your challenge! Build something and release it, 12 weeks from right now. To accept, simply reply, 'I accept - ' and when you finish, simply reply "It took ## weeks" with a link! It your choice - accept Gigi's Challenge to find yourself on the right path! (PS - Update. It's now been four years since I began, and I've released nine products, on three platforms. I have over 200,000 customers and a steady income from my spare time, Indie endeavor. In addition, my skills have improved so dramatically that I've gotten 2 promotions at work, won several national awards, and am now leading new initiatives in the medical field.)
