Who is Todd?
Having worked in Corporate America for an internal IT division and for a global software company for non-profits, I have a lot of hands-on experience with real life business systems.
My Pricing Philosophy
A New Pair of Glasses
For almost 20 years, I was caught up in "golden handcuffs" working in Corporate America. I confused living to work with working to live. Having been through several major life changes since then, I've developed a different set of priorities. Community and connections, travel and free time.
I've developed a plan for Helpful Bytes and a sister company C Todd Creations based on those priorities. I've figured out what income I need to have a simpler life, more free time, and an ability to offer competitive rates for high quality service and experience. I know this is important to small businesses and NPO's.
While I'm open to clients who are able or willing to pay a higher rate if they're able (an element of "pay as you can," I've priced my services based on "a new pair of glasses" - not necessarily the going market rate.
In summary, with my emphasis on community and a non-market based pricing philosophy, Helpful Bytes is uniquely positioned to offer high quality services at a competitive rate.
