Anyone that ever experienced that a personal/hobby project (side to work/school) became successful?
How successful? Did it beco.e your main job?
Was it mostly luck or a lot of hard work?
Curious to hear peoples stories and how common it is.

    This took an unexpected turn...
    My first personal project was a success in the way that it earned 20k downloads and 6k active users within 3 months. Without any advertising. It has remained at 6k users ever since. But there is no monetization, so not really a success I feel myself.
    Since then, all my personal projects have been unsuccessful (under 1k monthly users).
