And for some real world inspiration, give Bruno ล kvorc's story on creating RMRK a read:

Iโ€™m Bruno, and I used to be a web developer in a past life. In 2015 I join the blockchain movement as Ethereum entered the scene and have been building Web3 products and teaching people about Web3 ever since - from having worked on Ethereum 2.0 for a while to being engaged with Web3 Foundation presently, and developing an NFT standard on top of Polkadot and Kusama.

Last year I formed RMRK, a standard to build NFTs on Polkadot and Kusama and my team developed singular.rmrk.app as the minting and trading UI for the ecosystem. Throughout our development journey, we accidentally built the most advanced NFT system in the world. Right now, the volumes are around $1 million per month, which is a lot given that the Singular UI project itself is only a month old :) Our revenue is $30k per month right now, projected to be around $500k annually by the end of 2021.

And for some real world inspiration, give Paul Turner's story on creating Commissioning and Startup a read:

Hello, my name is Paul Turner. I am a professional electrical engineer and a registered project management professional. I have been working on complex projects for over 20 years and gained valuable experience from the projects I have worked on for power generation, power transmission, wastewater treatment plant process, and satellites and rockets in the aerospace industry.

Anyone that is working on complex projects should be aware of the commissioning process, even if not actively working on the commissioning team. Engineers, technicians, project managers, and HSE specialists from all over the world have enrolled in my commissioning courses.

There is very limited information about commissioning online. You can find bits and pieces of information, but no comprehensive resource that can help you understand the commissioning process. These courses help fill the gap and share my commissioning knowledge with others to help them succeed at delivering their projects on time and within budget.

And for some real world inspiration, give Rasmus & Christian Mikkelsen (or Mikkelsen Twins)'s story on creating Mikkelsen Twins a read:

We are Christian and Rasmus Mikkelsen, also known as the Mikkelsen Twins online. We run an online education company where we help people to build an online book publishing business. The reason why we teach what seems like a random/kinda weird online business model is because itโ€™s what changed our lives almost 3 years ago and freed us from the life path we were heading down (were in the middle of a business degree in community college and there was absolutely no hope for a truly happy and fulfilled life if we had continued to take that path in life).

Fast forward to today, our company is making over 6-figures in profit every month which is almost unbelievable for two 24-year-old (ambitious) idiots with just a laptop, wifi connection and a small team.

And for some real world inspiration, give William Carlsen's story on creating Coinpanda a read:

Hi there! My name is William Carlsen and Iโ€™m the founder of Coinpanda. I have developed a portfolio tracker and tax solution for cryptocurrency traders and investors with a heavy focus on ease of use.

Starting as the preferred crypto tax calculation tool in Scandinavia, today we have more than 5,000 users from all over the world. Because most people prefer to do tax calculations close to the deadline for their tax return, Q1 is the most important time of year for our business. We just closed the first quarter with $85,000 in revenue with a roughly 75% profit margin.

Hello! Iโ€™m Nacho, Co-Founder of Juggernaut (JGN). Iโ€™m from Spain. I found the crypto space while studying for my bachelorโ€™s at the University of Malaga, and I started working in blockchain in marketing and communications. Iโ€™ve helped and advised many different projects, like NuCypher or IOST, for example.

We started very lean, and have grown a lot since then. The price of our token went from $0.1 in the private sale to over $5.6 all-time high. We have received investments from Binance, Goldman Sachs (CA), and Softbank (UK).

And for some real world inspiration, give Artur Makowka's story on creating MintMe a read:

Hello, Iโ€™m Artur Makowka, together with my wife and an amazing team from different countries, I run a successful hosting business with over 1 million users all over the world. In 2017 I started the path to establish my ultimate dream business: MintMe, an ecosystem for the creation of tokens and digital coins as a means for monetization and crowdfunding of projects inside and outside the crypto sphere. This business started with the creation of the Blockchain MintMe Coin and its own cryptocurrency MintMe which is the main currency of use within the platform.

MintMe Coin, the blockchain, allows MintMe to become a full crypto exchange platform as well as a place for token creation, where people can share exclusive material with their followers and communicate directly with their supporters with security and transparency. However, what makes MintMe unique and "one of its kind" is that it offers both: token creators and their supporters, the possibility to earn money through token trading, unlike other crowdfunding platforms in which only one side gets it all, which makes of MintMe a completely new approach to the crypto and crowdfunding world.
