Weekly Snip Update, September 10th, 2014

I had an interesting thought recently that I think will be helpful to me. I realized that Snip is more important than any particular client project, and that Snip will (I hope and expect) still be around 10 years from now, paying dividends. Yet each week, Snip doesn’t seem to “make the cut”. I usually… Read More »

Career goals as of August 2014

My career goals have changed a little bit over the years but not much. Presently they are: Be a millionaire by age 35 (I set this goal when I was 26. I’m 30 now.) Be a decamillionaire ($10 million) by age 40 The reason for these goals is more about freedom than it is about… Read More »

My current chief aim in life

I recently made a poorly-worded attempt to explain how I look at life. I don’t know that a lot of my friends/family/acquaintances really actually understand how I look at life and what I value, and I for some reason feel compelled to explain what I’m all about. Just now I came up with what I think… Read More »

Weekly Snip Report, August 28th, 2014

Last week I said I was at a point of unusual clarity with Snip. I still am. Here’s kind of my plan: Fix all of the products “critical” defects to the point where I’m not too ashamed of the product to recommend it (not a ton of work) Make the in-app onboarding process not embarassingly… Read More »

The wisest possible life

I think it’s a good idea to try to plan my life as opposed to taking life as it comes. And I think the best way to begin planning my life is to think about my life as a whole. What do I want to do with my life, and more importantly, what kind of person do… Read More »

Weekly Snip Update, August 22nd, 2014

I feel like I’m at a point of unusual clarity with Snip. I’ve spent a lot of time feeling clueless, confused, conflicted, hopeless, hopeful, excited, depressed, sure, unsure, and many other things, usually all within a 24-hour period. It’s been a total roller coaster. At this point in time I feel like I know exactly a) what… Read More »

Weekly Snip Report, August 6th, 2014

The report is moving to Wednesdays The report is moving to Wednesdays. I decided late Friday afternoon is not the best time in the world to put out a blog post and that the middle of the week would be better. My guess is that more people will be inclined to read it this way.… Read More »

Weekly Snip Report, August 1st, 2014

I haven’t put much time into Snip this week due to a) having a shitload of client work to do, b) working on my BFL lead magnet (hopefully) site AngularOnRails.com, and c) having networking meetings and prospecting meetings for BFL. Last week I was in a pretty dark place with Snip. I’m feeling better about… Read More »

Weekly Snip Report, July 26, 2014

I did a terrible job this week. I’m looking at my calendar for the last week and I didn’t work on Snip at all. The main reason I didn’t work on Snip at all is because I worked 40 billable hours. I also had a lot of meetings with freelancing prospects. I also worked on my… Read More »
