Going for it!


I've been working full-time as a consultant data engineer, and my contract ends this month. The client sat down with me today and asked me to renew through January and beyond.
I took a deep breath and said, no thank you. I've been working with few breaks now for 18 months straight and I'm overdue taking some time off anyway. But now I'm going to make a proper go at getting this start-up off the ground. I'll take some down-time over Christmas, but January 2020 is "Boyne Analytics" month. My aim is to launch the MVP during January, and have feedback from at least one trial customer by 31 January 2020.
