My review of my Personal and Professional goals for the year within the first quarter of 2017.

If you’ve been a software developer for more than a month then you’ve undoubtedly heard about bidding websites such as UpWork. Regardless how you may feel about them they can be useful especially to software developers who are just starting out and trying to build up their resume/portfolio of work.

As I once said in my post “Goals for 2016“, I don’t have New Year’s resolutions I have goals. Resolutions are great but I’d prefer using the smart goals method to help make my goals more of a reality. I didn’t do that badly last year but I definitely need more accountability in my goals this […]

Welcome to another quarterly update in the business that is me. I meant to have individual updates for April, May, and June but sadly that didn’t happen. I’m still going forward with the intention of monthly updates but sometimes there’s just not that much to talk about out. Sine the last update I’ve joined a […]
