In 1994 I was one of the first “Web designers,” and with that came great responsibility. From the start and still, to this day, I have horror stories relayed to me by clients about consultants, developers, and service providers that are not, let's say, completely forthright to get into their pocketbooks.
There are always those who will knowingly take advantage of what clients don't know to make a buck in every industry or field.
That's why I've always taken a different approach.
Knowledge is Power
When you partner with me, I will take the time to provide you with the information you need (but may not know to ask about.) I will not take advantage of your lack of knowledge. I will not “sell” to you based on my income potential but only on what you need and what can be trusted to work for you.
From the start (27 years and running), I've managed my business by this Code of Ethics:
My Code of Ethics
While some of the above are not asked for, and yes, sometimes not welcomed, it is how I roll.
I do not prop up unrealistic expectations or cater to the free and easy online mentality. Succeeding online is complex, and it isn't getting any easier. By embracing what is required to reach your goals, you only have the best chance for success.
Now that you know my core ethics knowing where I cannot be of service is just as important.
Services I Do Not Offer
While I can provide advice and guidance on the following topics, I do not formally offer these services.
I pledge to be your unwavering advocate and guidepost to online prosperity.
At your service,
