About Me

Hi, I’m Josh. I became a full-time consulting technologist in 2006. I’m now semi-retired from both tech and consulting. I now write, consult (part-time), and invest. Drawing from personal experiences and research, this blog is primarily for other solo/ independent consultants, freelancers, and service providers. I sometimes also write about personal finance and technology.
