> How do you monetize the site?

We don't monetize the site, but we do have a patreon and an elegant edition. Those cover _some_ of our costs. Of course it would be awesome to have money from this but we would reinvest it to grow the movement.

> And who has invested in this?

No one and we don't want it. This is a project from a few hungarian guys, girls and the awesome volunteers who help us translate the booklet. We do this in our free time, because we want more awesome people.

And when I say free time, I really mean free time: I'm currently with my friends and started to answer your questions :) https://imgur.com/yDN3ePj

Start out with broad strokes :)

Try this: Get a piece of paper, fold it in half, fold it half again and again. You'll have 8 small squares. Give every square an area. What are your 8 most important areas in your life? Family? Work? School? Relaxing? (we did choose the areas for the booklet, you can use those too)

After that, answer this question: where do you see yourself in those areas in five years? And just broad strokes :) "I want a nice car" "I want children". Anything you want. 5 years is a long time and if you know where you want to be in 5 years, it'll be much more easy to plan 2019.

Good luck, I'll DM you in a month if you did the booklet :)

I’m sorry. English is not our first language, but we’re really trying.

So in thee sentence: we made a booklet with questions. The questions help you close your year and plan your next. People seem to like it.

> How many years have you guys been filling out these booklets?

8 years for most of us, we did it every year. Some of us started to create more complex versions for themselves, because of changed life situations.

> What’s the most profound thing you learned when going over past year’s books?

For me it's that it is okay to fail goals and bring them over to your next year. I think I wrote down every year for 8 years to "finish school". I have only 4 exams left and if everything goes well I will finish it next year.

I've had lots of anxiety issues about stuff like that. YearCompass did not solve that, but for me it was part of the solution :)

Well, we don't see what they write down, but from personal experience the bigger issue is that they all want to change everything at the same time. Don't do that, it won't work.
