I guess it depends on how much time you have. If you choose the self made path, it probably will take a long time.

I'm trying to do this myself with https://polished.app It can definitely feel overwhelming at times. I think the key is being organized and staying motivated.

Just start simple and keep track of the time you're spending on different parts of the business
