|I've been working on my small project for about 9 months now. It's slowly coming together but the progress has slowed down considerably. Not so much due to technical debt or pesky problems, but rather something more annoying: I don't know what feature to work on or what direction to take the project.
Of course I'm eating my own dog food, but my own use-case gets me only so far. How did you get a product that interests people? Ideally I'd like to charge money for this, but I think I'm still far from that point in time / functionality.|
My project is about tracking your net-worth so you can map out your own road to FI / FIRE. So far I have portfolio managing / stock tracking / FI goal setting. I have a rough roadmap that talks about tracking your cash / bank accounts ideally via PDS2, but other than that I'm kinda drawing blanks. The main issue that I have right now is that I don't want to start at adding bank accounts because of all the manual work for the user, at least until I get automated syncing set up but for that I need to register a company etc with each bank. That is a step too far right now because I have only one user: myself.
If you want to check it out and give some constructive feedback, I would hugely appreciate it. Feedback about anything at all: Design, functionality, ease of use, language mistakes, etc. You can find it at https://my.roadto.fi/#/
