The bigger issue (in my opinion) is that if it is at least moderately successful, others will try to duplicate it and undercut you. You will have done a lot of market research and such for them at no cost. Feedback about what's good/bad/missing will be available for others to react to.

Your ability to respond to feedback and make updates available quickly will be critical in staying ahead of the competition.

Releasing a product doesn't mean you'll have time to relax.

Do you feel you fully understand the vision and purpose of the software project you're working on?
Sure you can be told the "what", but do you have the "why"?
