Hi everyone, I'd like some advice from anyone who has been in the Magento community for multiple years. I am concerned my stint with Magento is nearing an end after 6.5 years. I am struggling to acquire and maintain long-term relationships with solution providers as a telecommuter and I believe I'm being forced to move to another city to obtain it. I am concerned the market is shifting away from long-distance domestic partnerships and towards local partnerships. I am trying to prevent myself from becoming a drifter, I'd rather stay in my home city, even if it means a new career path. Is anyone else feeling this type of strain? What would you do if you were me? I can provide more info if you need.
I find the situation the opposite actually.
Since 1.9.1 Magento has become more popular & as a freelance developer I have found an increase of clients contacting me requiring migration from other platforms.
Provide good service during the migration and you have a customer for life.
Most of my clients are in America - I am from the UK. Yeah the time zone difference is a bit of a killer for my social life, but it works.
