Many moons ago I wrote a quick status report on my first 100 days of Rails consulting. Now that it has been over a year since I joined the freelance world full time, I figured it was a good time to reflect again on that experience.
I said it then, and I'll say it again -- this experience has been a blast. I may go to work for someone else again at some point in the future, but for now I'm loving being independent. I've learned to manage the stress of worrying about where the next check is coming from, and I've gotten into a rhythm with the ebb and flow of client work, so life is good.
If you happen to need someone to help you build your web application, drop me a line. My schedule stays pretty full, so don't wait until the last minute to get in touch!
I'm looking forward to seeing what the next year will bring. :)
