7 Thank you Florian and Alan. This subject has proven difficult to
8 research and how cool to get in touch with lucid and experienced
9 individuals like yourselves.
11 I think I need to hire one or more programmers and manage them myself
12 precisely because I don't know how to do it. For many years I handled
13 all business duties myself, and I've slowly been handing off duties,
14 and I think that has been working because I know first-hand exactly
15 how each of those duties should be done. So many times my business
16 has required something I don't know how to do and I've been faced with
17 the choice of learning how to do it myself or hiring someone who does.
18 I've chosen to learn how to do it myself every single time and it's
19 served me well, although it is very much the long and hard way.
21 I'll be getting my feet wet with this shortly. Any other tips
22 regarding the management of one or more programmers working on various
23 small web projects? Maybe workflow or any key procedures a newbie
24 manager should follow?
