My Background

I have “zero” coding skills. Yet, over the past 10+ years, I have used WordPress to build hundreds of websites, from corporate sites and personal blogs for clients, to my own e-commerce stores, membership sites, business directories, affiliate review sites, portfolio sites, video sites, event registration sites, e-learning sites, lead generation sites, customer support help desks, and more … all at minimal cost and without ever hiring web developers or web designers.

Like many online business entrepreneurs, I don’t want to learn how to code, I just want results! 

As a non-techie, I know from personal experience that if you are willing to invest some time into learning how to use WordPress, you can build almost anything you can imagine online without depending on technical experts to get things done. Outsourcing is a choice, not a necessity.

I have been teaching and training businesses about the benefits of using WordPress almost since the beginning of WordPress itself. Around late 2005, I discovered WordPress and began building websites for local businesses. Prior to this, I spent many years working as a business trainer and business coach.

In 2010, I began running training seminars and workshops educating businesses about the benefits of using WordPress …

In addition to seminars and workshops, I have authored a comprehensive series of step-by-step WordPress training guides covering every aspect of using WordPress, from installation and setup to detailed guides on using, growing and managing a WordPress site …

In 2016, I launched two new WordPress-related training sites – one for WordPress beginners, and one for professional WordPress service providers:

  • WPCompendium.org provides non-technical WordPress users and beginners with free access to in-depth WordPress step-by-step tutorials,
  • WPContentStore.com provides web service providers with customizable and brandable versions of our WordPress tutorials, allowing them to provide  training content to clients under their own brand …

Oh, the Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss

Our aim is to fully empower businesses to have complete control of their digital presence and be in the driver’s seat of their online vehicle. WordPress is an online vehicle that can take you anywhere you want to go. All you need to do is learn how to drive it.
