Prune Your Web Dev Career (or Watch It Grow Wild!)

All too frequently, people end up changing careers into web development only to realize their new career sucks and they just want to get out of it! 😫 This usually happens if you say yes to everything. Your career is defined not by what your goals are but by who gets to you first. πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

Watch this. It’s important!

I’ll share an analogy to bonsai trees (along with some absolutely choice puns) to help explain why saying yes to everything is a terrible idea and how pruning your career by saying no will allow you to build it into the career you ultimately want.

I’ll also tell you a story about my own experience turning down a job that paid 50% more than my previous job πŸ’Έ … which cleared the way for me to take a job months later that paid 2x πŸ’°πŸ’° what that one would have paid.

In the process, I share a short clip of a video by Bonsai Boise.
