JMS387: Will automation REALLY displace 387 million jobs by 2030?

1/18/2019
More
From a study by McKinsey & Co., " “Our scenarios suggest that by 2030, 75 million to 375 million workers (3 to 14 percent of the global workforce) will need to switch occupational categories. Moreover, all workers will need to adapt, as their occupations evolve alongside increasingly capable machines.” Is that really gonna happen? And, is there nothing you can do about it? This episode is how I'm approaching it and how I plan to not just survive, but THRIVE.

JMS386: Guaranteed Success? The No-Hype Way to Ensure You Succeed In Business and in Life

1/11/2019
More
It's a different world we live in, today. All the chaos, all the technology... it can be easy to believe that the rules for success have changed. They haven't. In fact, those fundamentals are even more effective NOW, because so few people are willing to do them. So, when you think of how to GUARANTEE long-term you're successful... These fundamentals are it. In this episode, I cover what I believe to be the "trump card" of success. The thing most people aren't willing to do, that if you DO......

385: Family as your first freelance client?

1/4/2019
More
Should you use family as your first freelance clients? You certainly CAN and it has a lot of advantages, BUT it's also dangerous. If things blow up, you could alienate a family member for life. So, I've developed some rules for working with family and friends and clients. Follow these and you'll get the experience and portfolio item you want WITHOUT making your Thanksgiving dinners awkward.

Do easy things WHEN they're easy. Breaking my back on a 10-foot stretch of trench when building my new house taught me this the hard way. Here's the story and the big lesson I learned.

383: The hardest lesson I learned in 14 years as freelance developer

1/3/2019
More
I've always been told how smart I was. How "lucky" I was and how "easy" things would be for me because I was so smart. But, at 28 years old, I was broke with no real plan on how things were going to work out for me. It took a long night in a hotel 1,000 miles from home and my wife and kids wondering where their next meal was going to come from for me to finally get it through my thick skull that it didn't matter how smart I was. Here's the story and the hard lesson I learned about what it...

379: WordPress Gutenberg is AWFUL compared to the classic editor

12/19/2018
More
People vastly underestimate the technology they will or won't use. I mean I thought Twitter was dumb when I first saw it. Now, I spend plenty of time there. It's just how it goes. WordPress Gutenberg is no different. All these people saying they'll never use it WILL be soon enough. But, if you can spot these little incongruencies, you can predict where things are headed and get ahead of the curve. Create products and services. Out-compete those who drag their feet. And, position yourself for...

378: Web development isn't that important

12/17/2018
More
For real. It isn't. When you lay your head down at night and think about all the things you want for your life right before you doze off… yeah… you dream about PHP 8 I’m sure. You see yourself chained to a desk, typing code. THAT’S what you really want outta life. No.

Productivity Leeches

Yes, massive action. Yes, motivation, inspiration. Do what you love. ALL of that. But, none of that will actually happen until you eliminate the "productivity leeches" from your life.

Gutenberg. The death of WordPress

12/6/2018
More
People crack me up. I remember when I first showed my mom a smartphone. “What the hell do I need THAT for?” You should see her now. Getting her off Facebook is like trying to get a politician to quit lying. I remember when Twitter came out. “This is so stupid. Why would anyone care what I’m doing?” We see where that went. And yes, yes… I even remember when the internet came out. (Old jokes will get you BLOCKED! :D) There were people who said it’d never be a “thing”. People are so often...

Blood-sucking freelancers

I'm an uneducated moron

11/26/2018
More
That’d be the conventional wisdom. I only have my H.S. diploma. No college degree. Certainly no fancy-pants Master’s or doctorate. I’m just a lowly web developer building “boring” web sites for equally boring and uneducated people. To hear the know-it-alls tell it, anyway. But, as I sit here, on the land I own free and clear, looking at the house I’m building (and own free and clear), pondering all the student loan debt I DON’T have… I can’t help but think...

Do developers NEED a college degree?

11/19/2018

"You don't need college degree to be a web developer because people with advance college degree create libraries so that people without college degree can get a job." That's the comment I just got on YouTube. 🙄 Let's tear this guy a new... ahem... I mean, my thoughts.
