AppSir Should Have Started in 2011


Back in 2011, I've been posting about wanting to make mobile games and apps.  

If I had started then with the same intensity now, we could have been worth millions (of Philippine pesos) now.

My friends, who I ended up starting AppSir, Inc. with this year, would've been already primed and ready six years ago.

Me and Martin Josef Abella Yabut were classmates for our BA Psychology course and we had conversations about apps dominating the future.

Maryan Duritan, my grade school bud, was already making complex flash games in early 2012.

Me? I had a couple of websites and a Youtube channel I launched in 2007 (even before PewDiePie started his channel) with some vids having 12,000 views I never bothered to monetize.

Take note that these were all before 'the rise and rise' of Facebook and Friendster was still in. We had an early advantage.

If I had uploaded Youtube vids consistently since then, I would have rode the waves of Youtube's rise at the time PewDiePie only had 60k subs. If I had monetized that, and used the audience to promote my games, things could have been different.

If I had started publishing games then, I could have put my game in the App Store where they only had about three hundred thousand apps in at the time.

Just getting your game in with a keyword like "action game" would've gotten it huge profits.

I knew I could have done it. Why didn't I follow-through? Why did I just keep posting about it and didn't take action?

My mentality was "I'll get to it eventually" and "maybe it's best I start on it next year". I also had my mind on a lot of things in the present. College stuff, looking for a good job after I graduate, and so on.

Made me 6 years late on chasing my dreams. I should have talked to people, let them know I'll need a lot of me-time to invest in 'tomorrow'. Should have sacrificed some of the present opportunities to go for the bigger fish in the future.

Thankfully, I met Frances Daphne Ayala. Meeting her gave my life a new direction. I knew I had to put my life in order if I want her to spend her life with me. I eventually started AppSir because of her. I'll tell about that story in another post.

The dream is much harder to chase now. The App Store is saturated. Youtubers are popping up everyday.

Will we find a way to work around it? Yes. No doubt. We have a game plan. But, now we have a lot of time to make up for.

Lesson? Don't wait until tomorrow to start chasing your dreams. Life goes faster than you think. Time is cruel and unforgiving. Life is too short to wait. Opportunities don't wait.
