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 »

Weekly Snip Report, July 18th, 2014

I’ve been totally sucking at the Snip reports lately. I apologize to the eight or so people who have been following my progress. Shit has been pretty interesting lately. As I mentioned before, I’ve redone my website, now with the low-commitment CTA of “View Demo.” I have this View Demo form wired up to a… Read More »
