How do you split costs when you're living with your significant other?

An article for couples that I had a tiny feature in. My quote was taken way out of context but still works, lol.

Others, like New York City-based blogger Erin Essex, made more than her partner and wanted to live in a home that was out of his price range, so she was willing to foot more of the expenses.

I feel fancy, she called me a "blogger" :D

IoT development: 6 tips

My thoughts about IoT and staying on top of technology trends.

Key questions we ask our clients during product development

"One of my most important questions to first timers is ‘are you able to put your ego aside?’,” says Erin Essex, Creative Director at Webonise. “Have confidence in your idea but put your ego aside. So many entrepreneurs get defensive about their idea. You’ve spent a lot of time thinking about your app; as consultants we fully understand and it’s ok to defend your idea. What most first timers don’t realize is that as consultants we have seen apps succeed and fail. With that background, we will poke holes or offer suggestions to make your app even stronger, not to criticize.”
