Find something that you enjoy!
The ability or responsibility to help grow a brand by creating a web site is an awesome job. As a web and brand developer, I develop relationship. I get to hear stories from other entrepreneur about how they are growing their brand. I get to explain new web and brand development features and functionality.

Now I wanted to capture some emails. I had placed an email capture on the site, and the client was offering a e-book for all new subscribers. The client was pushing out one blog a week. I was going to send the new subscribers emails of all the new blogs. I am working on growing their audience …
Surround yourself with a supportive team!
A few years ago, I began to attend my local MeetUp. Initially it was odd. I was use to attending my local watering hole (coffee shop), when I began getting stir crazy sitting in my office. I began to meet other web designer and developers. It is a great feeling to share solutions, and war and success stories.
I am taking the next step by increasing my accountability within the WordPress community. I have worked as a volunteer at my local WordCamp. I have worked as an Organizer at my local WordCamp. I have been a speaker at my local WordCamp. Now I am speaking at a WordCamp, which is not in my area.
Keep pressing the learning button…
I am always looking to turn someone’s “problem into an opportunity for myself”. Sometimes learning is really about adjusting to the next situation, how do you present a solution to that situation? How do you find out other options? Do you know how to get the most out of Goggle?
As I continue to learn my craft, I am always encourage to learn a little more each day. Whether it is a new plugin or theme. Or finding a new solution to solve a client’s problem. Growing my business is always a good challenge. Finding new clients or solutions. Making sure to take someone’s problem and turn it into an opportunity.
I am available for web design and brand development. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 678-718-5489.
