    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."

    What’s up with the WordPress vibe?

    What’s up with the WordPress vibe?

    In today's episode, I want to chat about the current vibe in WordPress.



    Compare and contrast the community vibe, to the business vibe. Porto looked like a ton of fun, sad I missed it! The WP Minute showed up in a big way, so I'm really thankful for that.



    Plus! I couldn't hold off from ranting about the WordPress content space...again.



    Say THANK YOU to InMotion hosting for sponsoring the podcast. Support the show by purchasing us a digital coffee or joining the annual membership!

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!

Not just about WordPress
