We received our first client!

Henry @talktohenryj

I am writing this late but on November 5th I was just hanging out in my house and I received a note that a job was posted on DiversifyingSuccess. I know I didn't post it so I went to check my email.

SOMEBODY PAID ME TO POST THEIR JOB!

I am not going to lie this was super exciting. This job board is now a real thing! People are willing to pay for this service!

At the same time whoa, this job board is a real thing, people are paying for this service. That means we need to give them something worth paying for.

Right now the service is pay what you want but honestly the amount people are paying me sometimes I feel is even too much. Its scary but exciting at the same time I guess. It means I need to do more to help it be worth it for them.

I have made some changes to the site so I can do just that. I have participated in some group chats with great potential candidates for people and I am looking at other avenue to build my list. People are paying me now, I need to execute for them. And I will!
