Observations of a First Time Business Owner

In 2013 I was a bona fide business owner for the first time in my life. Of course, by bona fide business owner I mean that I had to pay estimated taxes this year because of the income that wasn’t coming from someone who was withholding my taxes from a paycheck on my behalf. That’s right, I had to deal with the terrifying 1040-ES. In addition to that, this year was my first tango at setting up what will be my proper side company moving forward: Crazy Goat Creative.

Announcing Deploy Goon

It is with great pleasure that I am able to formally announce the feature complete release of my latest open source gadget, Deploy Goon. I just released version 1.0.0 out to npm tonight and aside from one bug related to the CLI that I haven’t been able to pin down, it’s fully functional. Hopefully I get to nail down that bug soon and release a patch, but I didn’t want to wait on the announcement of 1.0.0. I’m impatient.
