When you started, did you create a list of people or companies that you would LOVE to work for?
Have you been working as a freelancer for several years and you still haven’t worked for that ideal client you dreamed of having when you started?
Are you just starting out and thinking, I would love to write code for SpaceX, but I know that’ll never happen?
Stop right there. Pick up the damn phone. Call them. Do it right now. I mean it, right now.
There are a thousand little things that can throw me in a testy mood, but nothing so much as when I hear a developer complaining that they never got to work with “one of the Big Guys.”
I have an easy solution for that person.
- Make list of the top 10 companies you want to work for.
- Get off your ass and call them.
That is all.
