This is an excellent write-up! I want to start my own thing and ditch the 9to5 but not really sure where to start. Want include an email marketing as well. I am in the midst of planning out my goals for 2018, so this comes in handy. Getting new clients is definitely a big hurdle for me.
Oh ho! If it is email marketing info you're interested in... mjml.io/ is an excellent framework to code your emails in. It has its own markup language that you compile with either a node module or you can use their desktop builder. It compiles into cross-platform compliant code for all email clients!
I also get the newsletter from reallygoodemails.com/. They often have good ideas!
Now you have me wanting to do a writeup about things I had learned from having my own web services corporation!
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
