We hired our first 1099 employee

Well, we did it!  After much hand wringing and deep conversations, we decided to hire our first 1099 employee.  Gary Gumbiner has agreed to work for the next few months on a project for Microsoft and Lionbridge.  He’ll be working on designing (and possible developing) a course in IIS6 for general system administrators.  We’re not making squat monetarily on the deal, however, it is allowing us more depth and capacity as a company.  That’s something we’re very concerned with since we’ve been having to turn down a great deal of work lately. 

Gary is a great guy, with experience as a Subject Matter Expert (SME) on earlier MS courses.  He’s also worked with 3Leaf, another great company based in Portland, Oregon.  We’2013-08-28 13:57:37’re happy to have him on board!
