A Tweetup Experiment

Submitted by Gold on Sun, 03/29/2009 - 15:58

The short version: Tweetup here, 5:30pm until whenever. Look for the guy in the big boots(You'll know them when you see them).

The long version: I was just contacted out of the blue by @ghozali asking about a Christchurch Tweetup. After a little investigation and coming to the conclusion that this person wasn't insane or a spammer I thought I'd follow up on it. I was under the impression that "Tweetup" was a functional site but a quick search proved otherwise.

So, with that in mind I'm resorting to a generic blog post and the use of #hashtags.

Survived the first year

Well... I've done it. Today marks my first year in business for myself. For the most part it's been a learning experience and, I'm pleased to say, profitable.

There have been a few hiccups with some clients and their ability to pay on time and pay according to the terms they agreed too. One of these has effectively been fired. Having weathered that though, things are looking up. I've managed to form a good relationship with a number of reputable companies, I have good projects coming up and a little cash in reserve.

Confidence in this self-employment thing is high.
