Hi there 👋

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

This I 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 Smog. 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.

I get a lot of requests from folks that want to be egghead instructors. I appreciate this enthusiasm! Check out how to egghead and understand that you don't need my permission to start creating screencasts. Just do it. Post them someplace and share them with me and the world. 😀

Want to chat about your business? I've set up a scheduling link so we can talk for an hour. Usually folks want to chat about some membership based online learning site or building a platform. I'm also an expert at marketing in a holistic non-shitty way.

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