When I first began teaching computers and UI design in the early 90's, I always included a little conversation in one of the last classes about how to navigate the freelance and creative world from the business side. As was so often the case, I learned enormous amounts from those conversations, including a lot of creative ideas to try in my own business. Now that I'm not in the classroom or teaching online any more, I miss having people like myself to talk through the intricacies of day-to-day working in creative, innovative, and fast-moving fields.
So, I'm starting a little series here on the blog called "consulting toolbox." My hope is that I can start collecting some good support materials from my own knowledge base and add in what I'm collecting via my Twitter feed and other connections.
And of course I'd love to hear from my community of super smart human beings. As I like to say, "together we have a full neuron." Please feel free to add topics that you'd like to discuss in the comments or @quietaction me on Twitter. Looking forward to the conversation.
