Trying to gain traction

Few updates this time. The company is still in "stealth" mode and trying to gain market traction. The target market is quite small, and that is OK. The original business plan calls for developing partnerships with other businesses.  Unfortunately, one potential opportunity is on hold for reasons outside of my control. I have not spent sufficient time on marketing over the past 4-5 months.  This does not mean going out of "stealth" mode.  I expect it will happen before 2019.  Personal cash flow is not yet an issue.  However, I am slowly beginning to look for suitable (i.e., interesting) short-term contracting opportunities.  The timing of the search is arguably premature but I do not have a good sense of what the market for shorter-term contract work is like.  Therefore, some caution is necessary.

I have been updating my gist repository on GitHub several times per week. Check it out here.
