Running a Business in Technology, Part 1

Running a business in technology can be a challenging thing especially if you have a background in technology.

As previously mentioned, WordCamp Atlanta 2013 will take place on March 15 – 16 at The Loudermilk Center. I’ll be speaking on Saturday, March 16th at 9:00am for the Developer Track.

Generally speaking, I’ll be looking to speak to both beginner and intermediate WordPress developers, but hopefully providing some useful information for advanced developers, as well.

That said, I thought it may be worth looking at a few of the topics I’m planning to cover during the course of the talk:
