Trevor tells us about his recent pivot to the world of software development after pinpointing a problem that wasn’t being addressed. We learn a bit about the services Newberry Consulting offers and dig a little deeper into software products, the necessity of meeting your client where they are, and the surprising amount of creativity involved in web development. Trevor and Carrie then tell us how not to work with developers and how important management is in making a job incredible (take note, managers!). After discussing how to relay the value of your services to potential clients. Trevor details networking, mentors, building relationship and working with a digital assistant. Trevor and Carrie wrap up with building your team, the merit of some personality tests over others (the age-old question, Enneagram or Meyers-Briggs!), and the very real toll that decision fatigue can take.
