Just a selfish post, nothing exciting to read.
- Hope ur all doing fine all things considered.

I'm still alive. Still learning.

Started learning ROR, but saw the demand for python and have now been learning that for a while. I wrote some simple programs that helps my business (they are EXTREMELY small and easy, but it's a start.)
- Learning python the hard way has by far been the best use of my study time so far.

My window cleaning business is now with
Tree service, window cleaning and landscaping.

3 window cleaners employed (including myself)

I now use subcontractors for landscaping and some other stuff.

Expecting to hire a window-cleaner more on part time in august/september, lets see.

I have enough cash saved up to live 3 months without a salary, so that pretty neat.

Anyways
have a great one

While scaling my ladder? What do you mean? :smile:
Climbing your ladder.
Scale is also an old word for climb, from the Latin 'scala' which also means ladder or staircase.
So really you're already a master of scaling, you do it every day. LOL

Gotta take your word on that one.
- I asked my question poorly, my bad. My question is, why should I not learning to code while i'm scaling my company?

Well, the plan is learning to code, so I can code things. Getting into a different kind of business.
My next business is 100% not going to be this logistic nightmare of 500 individuel privat costumers per employee.

You were perfectly fine, I was the one fooling around with wordplay.

If learning code helps scale your business, as you said it has done, then yes go for it.
