πŸ‘‹πŸ˜ Hey Product Hunt, πŸ’¬ The story of Moniesto Since I listened to β€œFarol da Barra”, a song from my favorite band, Novos Baianos, that talks about the Lighthouse of Praia da Barra, I promised myself that I was going to visit it in 2018. However, I needed πŸ’° $300 to do it. So I challenged myself to ship 3 Products in 3 Months to get the money to travel to Salvador (a brazilian city) and meet the lighthouse. This is my #2 launch! I realized that πŸ• time is the most important thing in our lives. It has such a value for me, that my New Tab on Chrome was a countdown for my death (approximately, shoutouts to @connorvo). It worked great. I understood that time was running out but I still needed to go some steps ↗️ further. Something I could use to set all the goals that were truly important for me and don’t forget about them. Then one day I had the idea of putting my main goals on my New Tab, so I could get motivated every time I woke up and opened a new tab. This was a meaningful way to see my πŸ“ˆ progress and the ⏳ countdown, so I’d never forgotten I need to fight and πŸƒ run for them. This was the moment I decided to create Moniesto. A tool to remember and motivate people for seeking their 🎯 goals in life. I started using Moniesto for myself with the trip to Salvador goal and added and subtracted money each day as they were passing by. And it worked beautifully! πŸ€‘ Before I reached 3 months, after my first launch (β€œmprove”, I made $80 with it), I also took care of a cat for a month and this gave me more $80. With this money, I finally bought the flight to Salvador. I’m paying the Airbnb in 3 monthly installments (here in Brazil we have this). At the moment, I could only pay 1 of them, so I hope I can get enough money to pay for the other ones haha. πŸ’© So I finally reached the goal traveling to Salvador on June 15th and… we did it! πŸŽ‰ Me and Moniesto with the Salvador goal accomplished!! πŸ˜„ ✨ I built Moniesto for those who want to accomplish something they always wanted in their lives. I built Moniesto so that nobody ever forgets to run for their dreams. πŸ‘‰ If you want to know the full story, you can read it here: https://medium.com/@guilhermeriz... 🎁 Features: πŸ’« Just set the money you need to make and the deadline πŸ’° Add or πŸ’Έ subtract money to each one of it πŸ’ͺ Be able to see your progress % and the countdown for each goal every time you open a new tab πŸ–ΌοΈ Sort and customize it just like you want ☁️ All data synced between your Chrome devices πŸ”­ Laser focus on your goals πŸ–ΌοΈ Goals examples: I’d really love to know how can I improve it and what you all think 😁✌️

Moniesto has been very helpful to me. I'm not the most disciplined person when it comes to saving money, but having my financial goals attached to a title and a image (and a deadline, of course) of what I want to achieve changes everything. Great product!

Pros:

Financial goals always a click away + actionable info on how I'm doing to get there

Cons:

None so far
