RJ from The Freelance Podcast was gracious enough to invite me on the show, hoping to share my 12 years of successful freelancing experience with his listeners.

A few off-the-cuff impressions: Keep Reading…
I’ve often pondered the idea of founding a co-working space in Visalia so as to be done with the grind of finding good office spaces for a small, mostly-virtual team. Rather than being deskbound and isolated in less-than-ideal space, why not be in a more open and communal space? Why not work amongst fellow geeks and creatives? Keep Reading…
