Why you should work with me

I believe in candor.

I always give a straight answer. Sometimes that answer isn’t the one that you want to hear. However, I believe that hiding the bad news from you only weakens our relationship and your project.

I want to see you succeed.

To that extent, I will help guide you through the process, providing my insight to add value to your business. At any given time, if you’d rather that I do it your way, I’m open to it, because….

I want my customers to be happy.

Few software developers and consultant realize it, but the software development consulting business is, first and foremost, a customer service business. If you’re not happy then our relationship will not be mutually beneficial. And I always seek the WIN-WIN.

I ship.

At the outset, we will agree on a release date/window for your product. We will together prioritize the features that you need for your Minimum Viable Product. This is part of the agile development methodology that I loosely follow. This will also likely define your first release. And it will ship on schedule.

I believe in forging meaningful long term relationships.

Engaging me alone, or with several of my peers, is not engaging a business but forging a relationship. Good business is built upon the understanding and trust in that relationship. The better that we understand one another, the better we will work together. From day one, I am trying to understand you and your needs to better add value to your business. Trust comes with everything else that I’ve already cited above (e.g., candor, shipping).
