I had a call with a new potential client today. It feels like a good fit and we have a follow up call Friday to talk business and if my proposed plan makes sense (it will) and the money I want fits her budget (it should). This was a referral from another client and I’m starting to get more of those which is good.
I also spent a couple hours on a purely technical task. I have several tools I’ve written for working with LinkedIn. All of them I run by hand and one of them I want to run automatically and on a schedule. That isn’t a super complex task, except it is because running unattended, it needs to do some things perfectly every time vs me being able to intervene if something goes wrong. So 3 hours or so were spent writing about 20 lines of code that have to be right. I still need to test it but the design is correct and that was all the time I could afford for now. It’s why I’m careful with my purely technical software time. That time gets eaten up quickly.
