I have a "one man band" software company. My revenues are about $250,000 per year with 90% margins. I know my levers of growth, and expect to be 1 Million per year in about 18 months time, with similar margins. However, I don't see ever being more than 2 Million per year, and that might be a stretch. It may be possible, but I can't imagine it right now.
My question is this: Is it OK to be just a 1 Million dollar/year company?
I will never be on TechCrunch, I will never be a "wunderkind" like 37Signals, Joel, and the rest. I'll just be a guy making 800K/year anonymously. I also approached an angel investor and he called my company "the living dead". His category for a company that makes 1Million but doesn't really grow from there. It keeps ringing through my head....living dead, living dead. It really hurt my feelings, to be honest.
But the customers and money do come in, and they need my product....
