"I am facing an extremely hard time coming up with a business model in order to sell myself as a viable Drupal developer. One thing that I am finding is that after getting to the final line of the interview process it is inevitably the person in charge of the hiring picks the coder. So what are your thoughts on that? My strengths are building sites that people can use, that content mangers can actually build, and the visuals are the enticing factor that lead to the content of the site. It is not in the code but the entire experience of visiting my site. Your are in the site and your out of the site.
In all those aspects, the code is secondary. So how do you go about merchandizing your strengths in a world that is still stuck on the f****** code? Perhaps, the terminology is changing. Should I be looking for designer job? If that is the case, why are designer jobs less money than developer jobs. Aren't designers knowledgeable about things that developers are not? Sisters, the terminology in Drupal really needs to be redefined? Written for men by men, is it still extremely sexist? Tell me otherwise!
If you can not achieve that split secondary in a site's development, you missed the concept all together. A site is build so that visitors can find what they are looking for immediately, and then they get the hell out of there? It is not frigging rocket-science!

PS: I am really getting frustrated. So maybe this group can help with my frustration?
So is there a Google Hangout for this group? If so, when do you meet?"
