One of the most dangerous things I’ve seen happen to people who are just starting to code is being told that it’s easy.

Here’s what your brain does:

rage-programming2 Drawing by me. (I am better at coding than drawing.)

Most programming doesn’t require a special brain, but it’s more frustrating and messier than anyone lets on. There are thousands of enthusiastic blog posts, classes and apps that aim to entice you with the promise of a slick, unequivocal procedure for learning to code.

Approaching 1M in sales by September 2014… #dontsleep

The goal to 1M in revenue within one year is coming together as we remain in phase one activity (massive action). We are approaching 40k per month in sales with the Mitech book of business. The goal of 84k per month in sales is in sight as we continue to build our book of business. 

We’ve added some heavy hitters in the area of IT referral partners in Middle Tennessee and Memphis. 

Also adding residential services to our portfolio has expanded our reach and ability to grow sales exponentially. 90% focus is still on business services since there is a passive income opportunity for agents. But by combining the two (business and residential), Mitech isn’t leaving any money on the table when the opportunity presents itself.

As new agents ramp up and build their team of IT consultants, Mitech is poised to potentially double the 1M revenue goal by the end of 2014. There is no limit on what’s possible with growth at Mitech. 

As always, #dontsleep
