Near death VC experience to $25k p/m bootstrapped - Kyle Gawley, Gravity

Kyle Gawley is living his life in Thailand and making $25k p/m through his product Gravity, although it did take a near-death traumatic experience with a VC-company for him to forge a new path for his life.
Kyle Gawley is the founder of Gravity, which he’s bootstrapped to over $25k p/m. In 2012, he scaled a vc-backed company, called Get Invited, to $5m in sales, before a near-death experience made him rethink how he lived his life. Now, Kyle is travelling the world building his bootstrapped SaaS. Let’s find out how he did it.
