I often wonder on different way’s to ensure there is always an income coming into the coffers. That sadly hasn’t always worked, so I have to try to figure out way’s outside the box. So I have a game in development, but until its released, there is no income there. We are of course hopeful that it is a success, but its not an income ill be getting in the short term. So that brought me to the idea of becoming a “Twitch’er” since I do have a lot of experience being a professional gamer.
The reality is I will probably have a hard time at it, as I don’t relate as well as I need to with people. Though i’m sure even my personality will be of interest with at least some people, the question is, will it be enough people to make that into an income stream? Then the reality is that won’t be a short term income either. But personally worth exploring as well. What do other people think on this? Anyone have idea’s on how to bring in money (in the gaming industry) quick for us?
Possibly I just need to find other work as a beta tester for quicker income, and add those other income streams to make a small successful company. In the end, all I really want is so me (and my staff) and my family can live comfortably in a rural setting. We don’t need fancy new toys (albeit I won’t say no!), just a regular middle class living. That’s all I “need” to be happy financially (I already am happy in all other aspects of my life), and I think that is really reasonable. Of course I have to grow to a certain size, to ensure my staff benefit of the same privileges I have.
My real dream is to not only have the company be successful, but to be able to endure the test of time, so I can pass it to my children when I retire. I am quite confident that its the dream of many other in North America… Leaving a legacy for your descendants!
