Since the last time I did an overview of my current projects was last year, I thought I’d write another one of these.
This month, Florian and I had a spontaneous brainstorming session, inspired by Tim Ferris’ “4-Hour work week” 3 and this video by Samuel Lee on Youtube 4. We came up with a couple new VR business ideas/products that we are very hyped about and are different from our previous projects in one super important way: instead of betting on the growth of VR, they are testible and viable products right now.
Hence, we are hyped, as this is an exciting way to potentially making money with many people profitting. And in the long run it is more scalable than offering development as a services.
We are also working on a podcast about general VR topics and looking to publish the first episodes, soon.
Over the turn of year, we had a bit of time to focus on Construct Arcade—our VR browser games platform. Lots of (especially informational) pages were added and Florian wrote an entire game in roughly two days. The platform and games are getting more stable.
We also added some amazon affiliate links in our headset guide to test how well that would work. The results have not been exciting yet.
In February Vhite Rabbit will be at its first event, “Startup BW Summit 2019” and I will be pitching. That is currently on my mind a lot, but we have a rough strategy of what we are looking to do at that event, hence a very interesting opportunity.
While I really want to be writing more blog posts, I seem to be unable to take the time. Most commonly I find it to be the last unchecked bullet in my bullet journal at the end of the day and that is not because I am missing inspiration or am out of ideas.
I value having a place to write down thoughts and a reason to keep working on my archive of past projects (Releasing a WebAssembly version of Zombiehunt is one of my goals for this year that serves litterally no purpose, but dabbling in old code).
I am looking forward to the year: I tend to set myself at least one goal that is super uncomfortable to me, but really want to do. This year that is workation to a foreign country. “Foreign” for me means something more exotic than crossing the border to Switzerland (5 mins from here): Indonesia, Chiang Mai, Spain for example would be more like it.
With that comes a strong intrinsic motivation to “solve” my financials to be able to do so. That sounds very optimistic, but the 4 hour workweek book currently makes me believe it is very possible.
I have this new gut feeling that making money could be way less complicated than I had believed up till now. I will tell you if that turns out to be true.
