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 survey of 96 Micro ISVs revealed that most one-man band software companies make under $25 / hour. No downloads and no sales is common. But there are some insanely profitable Micro ISVs out there."
