This is it

Well, this is it, today is my last day at my steady full time position. Tomorrow is my first day as an LLC; Susan Jean Robertson Development, LLC to be exact. I know, I can’t believe it either! I am excited, scared, and nervous all at the same time. This idea has been in my head for years but the timing has never seemed right; that all changed in the last several months as the pieces came together.

As of now, I’m open for business and looking for front end development work. I hope to be pairing up with designers in the area to help them complete client projects and of course anyone else who needs some good old fashioned code written. I have a big project right off the bat, for which I am exceedingly grateful. Plus, I’m just plain excited to work on the project; the people are fantastic and the project is exciting and will definitely push my skills.

In addition I feel fortunate for a few people in my life who have pushed me and asked me the right questions at the right time to help me get here. Good friends who push you are so valuable, as is a husband who is nothing but supportive.  I am also grateful for the community both here in Portland and online, because every time I’ve asked for advice or help, I have gotten answers without hesitation. It is still nothing short of amazing to me when people I admire take the time to answer my questions. The internets is the best!

Here’s to an exciting 2012, filled with projects and code. Thanks to all who’ve helped me get this far.
