#24: Balancing Client Work With Personal Projects – w/ Brad Tousnard (WPAppStore)


In this episode, we’re joined by Brad Tousnard, founder of WPAppStore, to discuss the balance between client work and working on a personal project or startup.  Brian shares his thoughts on the subject as well, as he’s been working on his startup, Restaurant Engine, along with client work.

A few of the topics discussed in this episode:

  • How to plan and prepare to invest your time in a startup (while paying the bills).
  • Making the shift away from client work and setting a timeline to do so.
  • How Brad came up with the concept for WPAppStore and how he made the decision to pursue it.
  • How the day-to-day operation changes when doing client work vs. working on personal projects / startups.
  • And other ramblings…
Programming Note:  This episode was our first time using the new Google+ “On Air” feature, which allows us to simultaneously broadcast and record our Google+ Hangout and push it strait to YouTube.  It seemed to work out really well.  The audio and video quality is a bit lacking at times, but it held up nicely over our hour-long conversation.  This new setup saves us LOADS of time in production too.
