Today I had the fortune to meet with a client that I have been working for for quite some time. They are from San Diego but had business to do up in Sacramento so we made it a point to meet face to face and talk. So today I drove to Stockton to meet with them.
I am glad I did.
They are a great team to work with. They have such an amazing understanding of their business and their customers that any developer that ever gets a chance to work with someone like these folks would be blessed by it. They bring such a zest to building a business that just about anyone could learn a thing or two about business building from these two.
Plus the drive was nice. The weather was good. The coffee at Peet’s was good. All was good. Except the number of people at the Peet’s in Stockton. Now that was just insane. I didn’t know that many people could be interested in Peet’s coffee.
But back to the business at hand. I have to say that I am excited to be working for this client. I almost don’t to use the word client because I feel that our relationship is so much more than developer<->client. Regardless, I am getting more and more excited about the work I am doing for them.
I just hope I can take some of their knowledge of their customers with me because that is something you can’t pay for but certainly pays off for all involved.
