I do softwarewriting, & consulting, and I have some goals regarding how I do them.
I have friends.  (They're great check them out!)
You can join/hire me.
This is my guide.
Worry less about the "Supposed-to-do's"
I mean I'm a pirate. Do what works instead.
Be open and honest about business matters
Being open during pricing negotiations is hard and it feels weird, but it works out better for both parties.
Get it working first, then worry about perfect
A thing you can use brings infinitely more benefit, than a better thing not yet finished.
How and why is non-trivial
Solving the wrong problems does not help your business.
