I got home and fired up the BBQ and started to explain the problems we were facing and how we were going to have to either stop taking on new clients or hire a few helpers and since stopping to take on new clients wasn’t an option at the time we decided to take on a few developers to trial and see what we could come up with.
Now this is the interesting part, my little brother who just happens to be a high level military developer was staying by me for a few weeks on leave from the army and overheard my entire conversation. He said “I think I can help you out here, I just learned some cool new stuff at base and I have a really good idea” I think are the exact words he used – to which I replied “You’re alright, don’t worry about it we got it covered” as if my baby brother is going to solve all my problems at work! I was literally laughing!
He then with a very serious face started to tell me about a project he was working on at base as a side project for his unit to help his commander manage 100’s of IT related projects, work flows, file transfers, managing teams remotely. I sat up and listened a little closer as he told me about the perfect framework to get my project started and get this he already bypassed months and months of time and dev costs!
So not only do I get a high level elite military developer I was able to bypass months of development time and costs and after years of struggling with all my SEO and Social media marketing management, just like that I’m getting fast tracked with the best quality work on the planet. It’s a dream come true.
I could hardly contain myself, needless to say my partner was over the moon about this discovery.
I could not believe my brother was working on a very similar system but for a totally different reason with a little tweaking this would be the perfect start, it literally felt like the luckiest thing that ever happened to me.
