Announcing Blueprint DC

« »

Since being laid off last month, I’ve thought long and hard about what I wanted to do next. After consulting with my fiancee and with friends and colleagues, I decided that the best approach would be to begin working towards my own consulting company. And so, several weeks into the process, I’ve laid the groundwork and today, I can announce it.

Blueprint DC, a full-service custom software development company based from Washington, DC, is officially open for business.

After being a PHP developer for five years, it feels awesome to be able to go into business, and work on great projects. I look forward to the awesome relationships I’ll establish and the great work I’ll be able to do for a multitude of clients, instead of just one or two (my employers).

So feel free to browse the site and get in touch with me to meet your PHP development needs. I look forward to working with you!

Brandon Savage is the author of Mastering Object Oriented PHP and Practical Design Patterns in PHP

I wish you success as being your own boss has obvious advantages but it can be difficult and painful when revenue dries up; my advice to you from my own experience is to have from the beginning your own project to work on when work is scarce.

The reasons are numerous, a) it keeps you busy and focused, b) once finished you have a product you can profit from and c) it is something you can showcase to prospective clients.

Also it is important you have complete confidence in your family for support – if you are serious about being your own boss, then don’t just take a day job to please the other half even if it’s short term – as your business will suffer, guaranteed.

Being your own boss for yourself and your family means that you do need to suffer and go without the nice things in life when there is no work coming in – all you can do is just stick with it and keep blowing your own trumpet.
