Back To The Lesson

These are the two important lessons I learned when my mentor encouraged me to learn how to develop websites over 10 years ago. He offered to pay for my first project and I delivered an amateur product that he couldn’t use. 
 
  1. Getting paid is a choice. You must learn and embrace the act of getting paid for work done.
  2. Doing excellent work is a must. It is the only way to survive in the Marketplace and show your clients you value them. 
From that time, I made a decision to do the best work for my clients and my clients enjoy the best of my expertise in growing their businesses.
