But I’ve been busy! With real projects! As usual, I need to balance the business development stuff with the getting stuff done…
I paid a lot of money for my insurance, but it means that I can work as a mechanical design engineer – something I’ve been missing for the past several years. But now, as I’m writing fee proposals, I’m realising that projects frequently employ a mechanical AND electrical engineer from the same firm. I think I need to find a creative way to solve this problem AND maintain my delightful kitchen table based work lifestyle. (Not telling you about the other places I work).
Ideally, I will find an electrical engineer who works like I do and we can cooperate. But I’m not holding my breath on that option. My other thoughts include; working with an electrical contractor who can do the design work and I can do the lead consultant (note; not frontman) work, or working with another small firm who might already have mech and elec engineers and they could also do my mech drafting. Again, I would be the lead consultant and attend meetings and review stuff. I’m good at that. If you are one of these people or know someone, please drop me a line/email.
Also, I should be organising to have “coffee” (stupid phrase, I don’t drink coffee) with people. If you think you’re someone I should have coffee with, please send me an email suggesting a date and time. I’m sort of crap at making that first phone call, but I’d love to talk to people 🙂
