1,000,000% this. If a senior engineer can’t explain it to you in a way you understand - even if you are a lot less experienced - that’s THEIR deficiency. Not yours. When this happens, it means THEY actually don’t understand it well enough.

The trick is showing ROI. People associate free with poor quality. Interestingly most of the paid bootcamps were started by people who didn't have tech industry experience. They were bootcamps grads looking to quickly monetize on a trend. I'm 20 years deep as an eng/hiring mgr.

Yeah man there's no point to these income share agreements. You and I know companies pay $15-35k for retained search anyway. It's possible to monetize 100% demand side. Also most POCs have student loans. I didn't want to pile onto their existing debt with 4 years of repayment.

If you work hard on the wrong thing don't be disappointed when people don't recognize your efforts. Effort does not equal impact. Understand how you're being evaluated and expected outcomes before wasting effort.
