Hi there 👋

My name is Joel Hooks. I'm a skilled virtual assistant, software developer, and a collaborator at egghead.io.

This is my personal site where I drop notes and articles about things that I am interested in. Generally speaking this journal will capture thoughts I have about building bootstrapped business, raising kids, learning, teaching, and my endless obsession with media and gear.

The entries on this page aren't all complete thoughts. It's a space for me to post what I like and I try not to hoard drafts like some sort of digital Smaug. Instead I choose to just let things fly and circle back to them later if I feel like it.

If you'd like to get in touch with me email and twitter are your best channels.

If you like something you read here, please feel free to share it and let me know. It's always nice to get feedback.

Let's chat about coding, business, learning, and teaching.

I send articles and thoughts occasionally and love to have conversations with folks. Lots of people like them, and I'd love to learn what you think as well. You can always unsubscribe.
