2018 Year End Round Up

30

DECEMBER, 2018

Web Development
WordPress

2019 is around the corner! Time fly fast when you’re busy. Back to back client work and consistent self development towards myself and the business. 2018 has been a fruitful year for me and Roquepress. Attending countless appointments, random client meet ups and establish relationships are some of the few things that I do to keep Roquepress running.

The Art of Freelancing

Freelancing IS a relationship business. Naturally, I am a people person. So I love engaging conversation with interested prospects. Ultimately I’m there to solve their business needs. To date, I am grateful to have stabilise my clientele base. There’s enough cashflow to save up for my wedding next year (exactly one year from today). Yay! Cannot get too excited. Because on the flipside, you are trading time for money. 

Back when I first started in 2013, I build websites for fun. Because it is something I love doing. I even build websites for friends and families at no cost! In return I get to improve my skills and get better day by day. It took me 3 years of procrastination to finally build a brand for myself. Thus, in 2016, Roquepress was formed.

To be clear, I am a self-taught developer. I took diploma in IT and degree in business during my tertiary days. Meaning to say, I have no computer science background. The awesome thing about web design and development is.. you can learn yourself. Really. As long as you focus and commit to it, you will get there.

Most companies don’t look at your certs – they prefer to see your work. If you’re good, your work speaks for itself. Last but not least – attitude. As cliche as it sounds, I cultivated that ‘never-say-die’ attitude in all my work. Its not a surprise that I have achieved my goal substantially, as a freelancer. It went beyond my expectations and I thank God for that.

“Do what you love to do, but don’t do it to the point where you don’t love it anymore.”
