Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Many of us here are "problem-solvers", aren't we?
I work as a software engineer, which at its core is all about problem solving. You receive a request for something, and then you figure out a way to do it. I'd like to think of it as being useful, even for products with a fairly small target demographic.
But sure, the money doesn't hurt either.

I like to think of myself as a problem solver too, but using different protocols.

"Law is Code", after all, but legal "programmers" aka lawyers get paid a multiple of what they are "worth" because they have Society by the balls, through a Monopoly on legal coding (alongside the Banks' monopoly on credit=money creation).

Shades of the medieval Guilds.

I'm about democratising the writing of legal "code", through the use of simple consensual protocols, as opposed to the detailed and prescriptive adaversarial protocols.

I aim to add value by architecting "enterprise model" (= legal and financial structure) solutions, it being my thesis that a "Capital Partnership" is an optimal structure.

It doesn't hurt to get paid, for sure - that's been the flaw in my own "enterprise model" until recently!
