I was involved in the Beta testing of Daylite Touch for the iPad and was invited to write a case study describing how my business benefits from using Daylite and Daylite Touch for iPad. Here’s the published case study.

Just posting because i haven’t posted in months. This is just a post about the interesting balance (or potential lack of it) when running an IT consultancy.
It’s an odd one – business is booming; clients are a-plenty; clients are happy and all extending our working contracts; all is smooth and rosy. But, in this focus on business growth and client satisfaction, there’s little time to give to feeding back into the community: I’m not attending many events; i’m not blogging much; i’m not tweeting many interesting finds. I’m just working hard, making clients happy and getting paid.
I do know others in the community who focus very much on their relationships within the community, and more on sharing and expressing than on earning. I know others who have a dedicated focus on creating products for the future.
So, i have to say that mine is a short-termist view: Generate the revenue and deliver. Of course, along with that comes the creation of some great business relationships (clients and partners), but it’s highly in the present and focused.
So, in fairness, with my family’s desire to move into a much bigger house, i have to say that the business focus isn’t planning to shift within the next 6 months. After that, we’ll see. I definitely want to create a saleable product. Of that, i’m very sure.
