Office Hours Starts Soon (And Watch My Newest Video Tutorial)
I realized that I may have jumped ahead of myself by starting to teach you HOW to build a Wordpress website, without first ensuring you understand WHY to build a Wordpress website.
After all, can't you just post a lot on social media?
Or get an account with Wix, Shopify or ActiveCampaign?
You could, but you'd be at their mercy, since you would merely be renting space on their platforms. They could shut down your account; triple their prices; get bought out by a billionaire lunatic; or shut down their service at any time, and you would have zero recourse.
Alternatively, you could OWN your own Wordpress site, and have 100% control over everything related to it. You could post whatever legal content you want. You could modify your site, duplicate your site, migrate your site or sell your site, and nobody could stop you.
That is freedom. That is the path on which to build your business.
More on all that later, but with that out of the way, I invite you to...
In an effort to prevent you from having to work a job you don't enjoy for the rest of your life (wow, I hope that is not your situation, but it very well may be), I will be leading Zero2Webmaster Office Hours, Tuesday December 5th at 2pm Washington DC time.
If you have an idea you want to share with the world, and you want to earn money sharing it, Office Hours is for you. Having a great website is the key to being able to work for yourself, rather than for some employer who tells you when you need to show up and how you need to spend your time. You can ask me any of your website design questions, and you will learn lots of new tech skills. We will continue building out the Curacao Getaway website we started last week. All levels welcome.
In my newest video tutorial, I show you how to personalize a brand new WordPress website. The focus is on customizing a pre-built website from Zero2Webmaster (the Zero2Webmaster SuperSite) but the info in this video is applicable to any new WordPress website. Watch how easy it is to create a beautiful homepage.
I look forward to helping you build an amazing website!

P.S. The Zero2Webmaster SuperSite platform I built can save you tons of money, because it negates the need to purchase accounts with Wix, Shopify, ActiveCampaign, Kajabi, Typeform, Leadpages, Network For Good and an array of other services that many businesses unnecessarily pay for. The SuperSite got its name for a reason!
Today I participated in an online workshop wherein Kerry Kriger demonstrated some basics of website design. By sharing his screen, Kerry was able to demonstrate how easy this can be. But if you lack time or technical knowhow like me, I would trust Kerry to get the job done. Thereafter, he would patiently provide you with the skills and support to maintain your site yourself. I didn't know that I wanted to build a website until I participated in your workshop, and now I see that it could be an extremely useful asset for a project that I have in mind. Cheers!
