Transferable skills from programming?

Anyone have any ideas/thoughts about how software development skills can transfer to other jobs?Project management - I'm sure that my skills in project management could transfer to managing people in other industries.Technical sales - Some sales is just relaying knowledge about a particular technical product. Creating my own tech product / company - This seems to be what many geeks like me do when they want to break away from the drudgery of writing code. Consulting?I know there are more but I…See More

Sorry for the delay, Brandon. I've been traveling and spending a lot of time in the car.

 

Wow, a hero I don't know that I am. I do get around and blog and record shows in a few places. http://needatopic.com is where I spend a big part of my time with members, but then at http://coachradio.tv as well.

 

I do package a lot of material online. Most of what I do is behind a paywall like http://needatopic.com and then in closed groups at http://beyondpastdue.com

 

I do a lot of PDF, audio and video.

 

By the end of the summer I'll have two or three more products coming out. I'm a big fan of combining multimedia, so each will likely be in PDF, video and audio.

 

Let me know what I can do to help.

That's great, Brandon. Your comment got cut off so I'm not sure if you were going somewhere else with it.

 

I think the problem you'll run in to is that companies don't know they need you. I see what you're saying and you're asking if I need it, but the answer is no. I'm doing just fine (as is every company) until you come in and tell us what our problems are and how you can help.

 

If you figure that out and tell/show me, I won't even hesitate bringing you in.

 

Can you point out to companies what they need?

Thanks for the welcome.  I've had a few issues with getting in to the site. Still can't from my Ipad but no issues from my laptop.

 

Thanks again for the welcome.

Ha! My ideas about how to make my dreams become goals changes.  I'm diving into the Dan Miller thing, plus reading What Color is Your Parachute and Quitter.  My hope is that in a year I'll have a much better idea on how to set a timeline to my dreams.  I do enjoy writing and like you, would love to invent something and/or corner the market in some way.  You would like to move to Florida as well?  What other ways are our dreams similar?

Glad to have you as an active part of the Pursuing Your Calling group Brandon...thanks for diving into the discussions :)

How's your ebook coming along??

In Him,

Brent
