The Micro ISV dream is that of quitting your day job and setting up your own one-man business. Instead of slaving away to make other people rich you can leave your cubicle behind, spend a few hours a day with some light coding and relax while the money rolls in. But is this possible? Can you afford to leave your job? Or should you get a job in a bar instead to get that extra income? A handful of Micro ISVs are extremely successful. A Micro ISV can sell more than $50,000 a month. These rare successes skew the numbers for the majority of Micro ISVs though. Most one-man bands earn under $25 / hour. The most common number of sales per month is none.
