Stop doing everything yourself.
I know what it's like to wear all the hats in running a business; to feel alone and overburdened. It's an unfortunate reality in starting a new venture, and one which can honestly go on for years. However, if we are to flourish financially and personally, we eventually have to focus our energies on what we do best.
I would love to help.
What I do best is training and building for the web. It's what I love. And I've trained a team of overqualified Business Catalyst developers who never cease to amaze me—much less my clients.
We've worked with many, many partners, building countless sites and custom solutions. Through that experience, I've been able to refine our process to create a great experience for partners. In particular, I think you will like:
- Communication and Transparency. We strive to keep all project communication where you can see, review, and participate in it. Even when we are struggling to figure out a particularly difficult problem, we don't hide it from you. You are part of our team.
- Skill and Consistency. My team follows very strict procedures and standards. They undergo 20hrs of special training before ever starting their first project. Then their projects are formally reviewed by me. As a result, every dev on my team knows exactly what to do, and they do it well.
- Creativity. We are leading the way in providing solutions to common and uncommon problems in the Business Catalyst community. Many of the community tools we have built, such as Dev-in-a-Box and the BC Pie framework, are a direct result of our work for BC partners. There is very little we can't actually do.
- Speed. We build most websites in 7-10 days. As long as you provide clear mockups and specs, we'll get it done in a timely manner.
Do what you do best.
Chances are, given a fair chance, you will succeed when you do what you love, and let others do what they love. By partnering with us for your development work, letting us run the back of house, I hope you find an opportunity to focus where your talents are.
