While reading the many year in review posts, I couldn’t help but reflect on my own year and decided it would be worthwhile to spend some time reflecting, digging through my calendar and email, and writing a review myself. I’m amazed at how quickly I forget what was going on even 6 months ago.
Unfortunately 2014 started off with a bit of a bummer. There was a big storm on the East Coast, flights were cancelled, and I wasn’t able to make the tiny conference Brian and I had organized. We have over double the number of attendees this year, so really hoping the weather is ok at the end of this month.
On the up side, I was able to make it to my first MicroConf and my first WordCamp in the US. I also gave a talk in Miami which I thought went pretty well. Both events were electric. I plan to make it back to both this year and look forward to catching up with friends.
Delicious Brains Inc has been the focus of my work this year and what a year! In the last 10 months of 2014, revenue was up 2.4x over the previous 10 months. (Doesn’t make sense to compare 2013 with 2014 because we only launched in April 2013.)
It was really great to see nice healthy growth happening month-over-month. I was hoping to double revenue in 2014, so I was very happy with the numbers. The big dip in November and December was a bit disappointing, but to be expected around the holidays.
