outsourcing - use a nom de plume

If you’re like me and have one identity that you use for everything here’s a tip that will save you a bunch of pain…

Any time you go out to market offering work, asking for pricing, jobs on oDesk or Elance, or really anything that will attract marketers or spammers, use a nom de plume instead of your real name.

It seems simple, but it’s something I had to learn the hard way.
