JS on SuiteScript Stories with Tim Dietrich and Eric Grubaugh

Tim Dietrich and Eric Grubaugh invited me to join them on SuiteScript Stories to talk about the pros and cons of a platform specialization, the paradox of positioning, and, of course, the horrors of hourly billing.

Tim and Eric were kind enough to let me post the interview here on Ditching Hourly, but if you're a NetSuite developer, you should check out their podcast at https://suitescriptstories.com/ 

We discuss:
  • Jonathan's and Tim's shared history in the FileMaker Pro space
  • Jonathan's AHA moment when he realized hourly billing was killing his business
  • The misaligned financial incentives created by hourly billing
  • How specializing in a narrower target market amplifies your opportunities
  • The various forms of specialization: Vertical, Horizontal, Platform
  • The obstacles an agency faces when trying to specialize


Have you ever thought about starting a podcast but gave up because it seemed too hard?

I’ve got good news for you:

If you can run a Zoom call, you can host a podcast.

In my 5-Day Podcast Challenge, you will learn exactly what to do (and, more importantly, NOT do) to get your podcast off the ground in as little as five days.

Stop thinking and start doing. You could be inviting guests to your new show in less than two weeks.


I hope to see (and hear) you there!
