  2. Thanks for the great feedback! To clarify, the time posted in the notes denotes the length of the segment. The time 20:05 is the length of the interview. I apologize for the confusion. I will make a note to clarify this in future episodes.
    Thanks for listening!

  3. By the way, I noticed that your timeline was a little off. The interview with Daniel Hand actually begins at 7:42, not at 20:05. I just want to say again that I enjoyed this podcast a lot. Dan’s book also comes with a ton of documents like sample business plans, contracts, proposals, etc. — VERY, VERY, helpful stuff for anybody in the business.

  4. I agree, computer techs thinking of starting their own business, need all the help they can get. You can never get enough information, in this business. And having resources from veterans Dan, help us all.
