Regardless of your profession, your speed and ability to get things done quickly will make or break you. This is especially the case in the field of website design and development where almost everyone has a story of working with a “really slow” website designer, web master, etc.
At Websites in a Flash, I always am working on improving my speed no matter what the project.
“But you get paid by the hour. Who cares how long you take?” – Lazy
An sloppy and unethical business man will have this opinion, but a website designer who’s goal is to create high-quality, professional websites on or before the targeted completion date won’t care.
I feel that speed is one of the most important factor (seconded only by quality). That is why I call my business Websites in a Flash!
