My Hardcore Year is over! I borrowed (with permission) the concept of Hardcore Year from @AndreyAzimov who quit his job and set a goal to get to $1K MRR in 1 year. He also achieved his goal. I think Hardcore Year is a great way to convey a struggle that many entrepreneurs face. Many successful business owners that I've talked to all had this time when they were starting out, usually at least the first year going full-time, where they had to face their fears and fully commit to doing something they believed in, even when the odds seemed stacked against them. This was my year.
