Running a Business Amidst Changing Technology

Whenever I have the opportunity to speak at an event, I always try to cover the events, any slides, any footage, and any other material related to the event in my speaking category.

Sometimes, though, I’ll write an article on another property that spends more time diving into a talk or a presentation that I gave in an attempt to help reach people through a site with a larger audience.

And it in a recent post for Envato, I did exactly that. Specifically, I did a deeper dive into my WordCamp San Diego speech on what it means to focus on running a business while keeping up with changing technology.

Hosting Office Hours with Carrie Dils

Many of you are likely familiar with Office Hours with Carrie Dils. But if not, here’s what the show is all about:

Every Thursday at 2p ET as Carrie interviews a variety of folks within the WordPress ecosystem, from plugin developers to marketers to business owners. The one thing they have in common? Each guest has found business success through leveraging WordPress as both a tool and a platform.

I had the honor of appearing on the show in previous episodes and had a great time. I also recommend tuning in when you have a chance as it’s a great, free opportunity to hear and learn from others.

Weeks ago, Carrie celebrated her 100th episode (which is an awesome feat in and of itself).

Three Reasons For Attending a WordCamp

As I’m decompressing from the whirlwind that was WordCamp San Diego, I’ve been going through notes and bookmarked posts on the topics for many of the things that were discussed.

But my mind is also drifting to several emails, messages, and notes I’ve received this year about those who are interested in attending a WordCamp but have yet to do so for one reason or another.

Though I’m considering writing several posts over the course of this week all related to the material covered at the conference, I thought it might be worth sharing some of the reasons that I enjoy going to WordCamp.

Headed To WordCamp San Diego 2016

WordCamp San Diego 2016 is taking place this weekend and I’m pretty stoked about it.

This particular WordCamp is going to be a couple of firsts for me. Specifically…

  1. I’ll be speaking at any type of WordPress event that’s not in Georgia,
  2. I’ll be speaking on the business track (as opposed to the developer track).

I’m also looking forward to meeting a number of people who I’ve yet to meet face-to-face, and I’m looking forward to catching up with those I haven’t seen in quite a while.
