I've been creating websites for around 15 years using different website builders, including Wix, Squarespace and Shopify.
For around the past 5 years or so, I've been using WordPress, and it's now my preferred website platform.
How I got here
My side-hustle became my full time gig
I started a product review website with WordPress after spending a couple of thousand dollars to do an online course. The course was extensive, and included a lot more than just putting together a WordPress site.
It didn't take long for this website to start earning money which later gave me the freedom to give up my regular job. That was 5 years ago, and I now have a number of WordPress websites.
busy, busy, busy... juggling everything
9 to 5 was never my thing
I've never enjoyed working within the constraints of a full time job. As far back as I can remember, I have always been looking for ways to work for myself.
Regular jobs didn't give me the time I needed to enjoy life a bit more. I felt as though I was juggling plates on sticks (you know like you see at the circus?).
others wanted to know my secret
It looked like lots of freedom and easy from the outside
Once my review website was earning, I had people asking me how they could get into it too.
From the outside, it looked easy - or that's how I made it look. I can easily spend many hours researching and writing reviews for my sites, but that's because I also really enjoy it.
After talking others through the steps needed to set up a website, not one of them wanted to take it any further. It was too much for them. This was partly because by this stage I had enough knowledge of the background workings of websites, that it sounded like I was talking a different language.
People loved my enthusiasm when I spoke about my work, but didn't understand any of the behind-the-scenes stuff.
How things changed
This of course was before the world stopped due to Covid
Like many businesses, I was hit with setbacks thanks to Covid. No one was taking holidays, and had stopped buying a lot of the recreational gear that I had been reviewing. We all have to learn to pivot.
I could see many small businesses and individuals wanted to get online - and fast! Online shopping was booming.
It's hard to know where to start even if you have a healthy budget to kick off an online store or website. There is so much information online about how to set up the best website, that it can quickly become overwhelming.
I have the knowledge & experience that many people are now looking for
You have the business, I have the know-how
I realized that putting together a quality, professional website is what a lot of people are now looking for. I've paid for expensive good online courses, and expensive bad online courses.
I learnt quickly that it would have taken me at least a month to learn how to set up a WordPress website on my own.
The modules, videos and transcripts on this site, will take you through each step you need to set up a WordPress website. Yes, there's a bit of work to it, but it CAN be done in a weekend.
We'll get your business online and up and running in no time.
