#Who are you? ##What do you want to do? (Not your job, but your work, now, tomorrow, and in the future)

I want to help other web developer freelancers (I know it's meta) to stop worrying about their cashflow issues. I want to teach them how to take existing customers, make them awesome, and use these referrals to get even better customers. Then to use different recurring revenue models that will make cashflow a worry of the past. Next I'd want to move this model up to agencies and small SaaS companies.

##Who do you want to change, and how do you want to chage them?

Freelance web developers. I want to change their outlook of their business. I want them to consider how their business will look financially a year, 5 years, and 10 years right now. How does it shape their retirement and their lifestyle?

#What do you provide?

Use Divvy

  • set up the 6 keys above the arrow keys as global hotkeys for 6 equal segments of the screen (and then the same with the 9 numpad keys)
  • An alternative to divvy is moom which can memorize layouts

TV Settings

  • play around a bunch with the color settings
  • Turn off any Picture Mode effects (ie - 'sharpening' or 'motion' TV processing in the TV setup)
  • Enable game-mode if possible. You may have to plug in a console (e.g. PS3, etc.) to do it, but do it on that HDMI port and then plug your computer in.
