Retweeted by Matteo ManferdiniHard to believe that in just a decade, Apple pretty much wrecked the indie software scene and decimated software's perceived monetary value.

Rule of business #1: if it’s easy, it’s a scam. @InvestmentKId @ramit @Tony_BATtista @TFMTrades and getting people to sign up for trading accounts so that you can get a commission. @ramit @InvestmentKId in the past there were Nigerian princes givin away money.

@sla_shalafi That’s fair, if it’s something you don’t like. Many don’t realize that business is mostly marketing and sales, not just code. @sla_shalafi 4% is amazing. They can easily double the price and they are already at the top of the grossing chart. @sla_shalafi All because we want to run businesses while despising marketing and sales. So the only “strategy” we have is low prices..@sla_shalafi We can rehash that all we want, but it’s we developers that taught people that software is worth nothing.A rare blue moon: Hacker News commenters acknowledge marketing is important, not a scam. This will be forgotten tmrw https://t.co/v2ndBNSEYb

Retweeted by Matteo Manferdini @sla_shalafi @serieuxchat that is interesting. Never happened to me, but smtg to keep in mind. I would also severe all relationships. @sla_shalafi @serieuxchat I would say I get 80%. Seems I’m lucky then 😊 @serieuxchat @sla_shalafi good points. Maybe I’m lucky but I get very little of both.Why do people complain about recruiter spam, exactly? They keep sending me a lot of client opportunities without me moving a finger.

@matmanferdini 8) This is the useless advice I got when I started freelancing, which lead me to starve. Article coming next week on my blog @matmanferdini 7) Most important steps not mentioned: how to generate leads and how to convert them into clients. @matmanferdini 6) Believe in yourself: worthless if you are using the wrong strategies. Beliefs don’t bring actual clients. @matmanferdini 5) Set your pricing: important, but unless you know how to win clients, you don’t get to set any price at all @matmanferdini 4) Build your brand: useless. Very important instead: positioning, which the author seems to ignore @matmanferdini 3) Build your portfolio: busywork that is almost useless and brings no client @matmanferdini 2) Choose your expertise: niching is good, but this section only offers vague advice and does not show why it is important1) Despite what author says, this is NOT the way to start freelancing: https://t.co/bHwgUSPGFMVery interesting tweet storm on useless interview tests for software developers. https://t.co/l8VwFJyhqhI find some sad irony in Americans being afraid of war under Trump, but never having problems with escalation with Russia under Obama.

Let’s assume ASO doubles your downloads (which doesn’t, but let’s assume). If you have 10 each month, that would make them 20. @sla_shalafi here it’s hard to get a mortgage when self employed. So I got mine while I was an employee and then quit. Nobody bothered.Do you know why everyone talks about ASO these days? Because it’s easy, unlike talking about real business strategy.

By biasing its internal electoral market the DNC selected the less competitive candidate defeating the purpose of running a primary.
Retweeted by Matteo Manferdini @daniel_a_a They are, but reality is most people are sloppy at their job. We get to see recruiters because they write us. @daniel_a_a you are way too optimistic. Many emails I get are not even for stuff I do. For example I get offers for Microsoft stuff.
