If Not You, Then Who?

Kevin Hoctor:

It’s easy to feel discouraged because your software is in use by hundreds instead of thousands or thousands instead of millions. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed because you don’t have the time to see your vision in full bloom. It’s easy to give up and let someone else deal with creating the solution, but don’t do it. You’ll be cheating the world out of an experience only you can provide.

I’ve been happily using MoneyWell for about a year now. Hoctor talks about designing it for himself, and I can tell that it wasn’t designed for me. I don’t use the signature features: direct connect banking, envelope budgeting, or cash flow management. However, he’s built an application that’s also flexible enough to work the way I want. Even though you may not have reached your vision (yet), you may still end up solving a problem that someone else had.
