My venture into training work continues to be successful. I’ve completed two classes so far this year and I have three more coming up. I haven’t done any actual development since the end of February and I don’t plan to do any more anytime soon. My training schedule has me fully booked through mid-July. (The prep work is time-consuming.)
My hope/plan/expectation is that from here on out I never take another development gig out of necessity. I might take one because I want to, but my plan is to do enough sales in training and products that I never have to take a development gig just to pay the bills. And I especially don’t want to have to take a shitty development gig just to pay the bills. Luckily it’s been quite a while since I’ve had to do that.
Like I said, I have a fully-booked training schedule through mid-July. After that I’m planning to take a vacation with the family and then after that I don’t know what happens. What would be ideal is if I could get Angular on Rails to the point where it’s making $10K+ a month so I don’t have to worry about lining up any client work. This, of course, has been the whole objective of my now nine-year-long effort to build a successful product business. So far Angular on Rails has worked better than any of my previous tries.
I have some stuff to say about Angular on Rails but I’ll save it for the March 2017 Angular on Rails Income Report.
