Looking Backwards: 2016 in Review

It’s that time of the year, reviewing what has been done, assessing what was good, discarding what was not, and moving forward in a better¬†situation than I was before. After my theme and goal setting at the end of 2015, I moved into the new year with hope and optimism. This year was very interesting […]

Creating a Body of Work

I’ve only just begun to write consistently, but why?¬†Why¬†now?? Podcasts are a big part of my weekly routine.

Erickson uses systems and time tracking to maximize his revenue per hour by measuring the […]

You will not feel like you’re progressing, and you will¬†certainly¬†feel like somewhere along the line, you made the wrong decision to learn something new, to put yourself out there, and strike out on your […]

This is of course depending on the client, what they need, and how much they’ll will to pay for the project they need done. Learning how to price your services […]
