You'll find though that if you decide to go beyond being solo, these things matter.
my plan is to stay solo forever. i'm not a salesman. i don't believe in "trickery" to get things to fit my plan. i'm just straight forward and upfront with people. i tell them how it is no gimmicks. people respect that. that is what people really want. they don't want a salesman with tricks up his sleeve in my experience.
