      Congratulations on 3 years, Dustin! I agree with your tips for finding work. Most of my work has come from being active in my chamber of commerce, a leads group in that chamber (similar to BNI), other local social groups, and overflow work from people I know through our WordPress Grand Rapids meetup. Speaking of that meetup, Jared is also a member.
