  • Posted to Ask DN: What is your experience of buying and using health insurance as a freelancer?, Apr 04, 2018

    Yes, this is something I'm struggling with myself for my family.

    Currently, we are still on the plan from my wife's full-time job through COBRA, but in about 8 months that will expire and we'll have to find something else.

    I'm certainly interested in knowing more.

    I see lots of people who do these health share plans, but not really sure exactly what they are. They seem to be more of a community health insurance where you sign up to generic health coverage but it isn't as much as you would get if you went with the conventional.

    Definitely -- Brennan talks about how he learned over the years about depending on who he's talking to, the language used is very different

  • Posted to How do you come up with business / apps / startup names?, Mar 31, 2017

    This for me is always hard.

    I think that it really has to come across to the ideal customer with ease and make sense to them.

    Gotta be short!

    Can't be difficult to spell.

    As pointed out by @rick - gotta pass the radio test. Needs to be easy enough to spell.

    Now in regards to that last line, I'm always telling folks "rezzz.com, that's with 3 z's" which at times sucks, but I've been known as and had that domain since early 2000s so I'm going with it.

    Essentially this is a classic case of "do as I say, not as I do" ;)

  • Posted to Apple has acquired the Workflow-app and team, in reply to Zuno Young , Mar 23, 2017

    I haven't used Workflow so I'm not sure if this is possible with it, but can do things like automatically text someone when you leave work. Shut the phone into silent when your phone picks up the Bluetooth of your car. Things like that.

    As a recent convert back to iOS, after being a long time Android fan since I left the 1st gen iPhone years ago, I've had my eye on Workflow for some time. Tasker on Android was amazing, so I hope Apple does something awesome with Workflow to make all our lives easier.

  • Posted to How to qualify (and disqualify) client projects – an interview with Bryce Bladon, in reply to Noah S , Mar 23, 2017

    Hey @N_S

    I think that if you feel that a mentor is a way to go, do it! However, before you decide on one, make sure that you know what it is that you want out of the relationship. In other words, don't think the mentor is going to do the work. They are there to guide you, but the effort is all on your shoulders.

    When I transitioned from FT to FL I tried to build up as much of a base of clients before pulling the plug. This way I wasn't scrapping the barrel when I quit. There was at least revenue flowing in so that I could keep a roof over my head and food on the table.

    One final thing is that if you keep telling yourself that you'll quit when you are ready, you'll never be ready. Everyone says that and there's never a point at which you'll say "Ok, today's the day because I've done all I can to set me up." Best thing to do is to pick a date, then work your butt off until that day to set yourself up as best you can, and then just do it.
