    Before heading to WordCamp…

    Before heading to WordCamp…

    Heading to a major WordCamp event can be an overwhelming experience for the brand new 'camper.



    Having hundred if not thousands of WordPress-loving peers under one roof might have you stuck in your tracks, no pun intended. How do you meet new people? How do you get noticed? How do you recharge if you're an introvert?



    Thanks to Gina, we'll learn about all of that and more! If you enjoy today's episode, please share it on social media, especially if you're headed to WordCamp US 2022 this week!

    WordPress accessibility in a page builder world

    WordPress accessibility in a page builder world

    Web accessibility was something I was afraid to discuss with clients, when I ran my agency.



    I didn't know much about it, where to begin, or how much time it would it take to implement the various practices. That fear steered me away from presenting it as part of a web design project.



    I'm not in the agency space anymore, but I know there's some of you out there faced with the same dilemma. Lucky for us, folks like Anne Bovelett advocate for both sides of the cause.

    We'll explore his story today, starting out as a freelancer and now working for VIP at Automattic.

    Introverts: Building businesses & networking

    Introverts: Building businesses & networking

    Just because you're an introvert doesn't mean you can't build a business. It doesn't mean you're afraid to get on stage and talk about your success -- or failures.



    Ken Elliott knows this role all too well. He's a self-described "networking introvert" that built a WordPress agency with his co-founder, will be emceeing WordCamp US next month, and appeared on this podcast!



    We dove deep into how he built his agency, lessons learned from servicing clients, and what steps he's taking to grow the business through 2022.

    Why you need a business sabbatical

    Why you need a business sabbatical

    What if you locked yourself in a room and threw away the key to work on your business?



    Stop the Slacking, the doom scrolling, but forced to focus on the agenda of improving...everything.



    That's exactly what Kim Coleman, co-founder Paid Memberships Pro & Sitewide Sales, did to re-focus the Sitewide Sales business. Running a business of 2 core products, 14+ employees, and with her husband...it was time to "get away."

Must Listen WP Business Podcast

This is one of the few podcasts where I listen to every episode when it comes out. Matt asks thoughtful questions and really ads to the conversation with his years of experience in the WordPress business community. His guests are fantastic.

Talks like one of us

Matt talks about Wordpress, podcasting, small business, and so much more. Listening to this podcast is like listening to one of your knowledgeable buddies talk about the things you think are important or that he thinks you should be thinking about. I always make a few notes in things I need to do further research on. Matt gives me good ideas and insights!

DMD Podcast ,

Not just about WordPress

Matt's knowledge of business and WordPress combine to be an excellent podcast.
