An exploration of ideas, lessons, hacks and opportunities to make you a more productive WP developer… and take your business on the road.

Topic points:

Lessons learned whilst traveling the world as a remote WP developer.
Hard realities of what it’s like to be a digital nomad, and what you need to do to make it profitable
Australian specific tax implications and opportunites
Acknowledge maintenance is required, and turn it into a product you sell to your clients (eg: ManageWP, InfiniteWP)
Develop using ‘reusable function’ methodologies in your business (eg: starter themes, child themes, frameworks). Look at baking your own framework, but always use others.
Look for opportunities to streamline your development (eg: CSS compilers, FTP sync, placing WP in a subdirectory).
Become a hosting reseller to increase your passive income and be a one point call for your clients. This will save you time dealing with site builds.
Identify opportunities to buy developer licenses and sell access to these as part of your maintenance.
The benefits of stepping out of your comfort zone, and learning from other developers – especially non WP focused ones.
