After years of helping people for free, I finally started my consultancy. I hope to offer lots of services, (Linux, 3D design, photography, etc.) but my first four customers are all paying for Linux and web work. A great start!
No, I’m not leaving my full-time job. I love the people at Thermofisher – some of whom I’ve been working with for more than 15 years. I also (mostly) love the work. Having this legitimate business makes it easier to receive real money for the work I’ve been doing “on the side” for as long as I can remember. It may also give me an excuse to say “no” from time to time. 🙂
