This one is a bad experience that I had while working with someone, who I met through a tech personality in the local community, and before I realized my mistake it had been over a year since I was working for this company/individual.

To keep it short, I would just like to tell people who are running a startup or working with some medium/big size company as freelancers to NEVER quote low for any project on the promise(written or verbal) that there are bigger and better projects for you to do. Secondly, always make a written agreement with the payment terms and deliverables mentioned clearly. There are many other lessons which I would be sharing soon.

Its been a real lesson for me. The biggest let down from someone whom I started looking upto as a mentor and as a senior.

Its been over a month now, never really discussed with anyone about it. Only a handful knew what I was upto. And now it has started.

Its been over a month that I have left my job and jumped on the bandwagon of Tech Startups. A difficult decision to make and certainly not an easy one when the economy of the country is going down and a steady income stops coming into your hands.

I really hope to live upto the expectations of the people who have always been there for me and encouraged me.
