May 17, 2019 — Joshua Strebel, CEO and Co-Founder of Pagely and Northstack, will take the WordCamp Phoenix stage to share his unique perspective on WordPress and business.
January 23, 2019 — You met someone in life and many years later you see them on the cover of Forbes. The natural reaction is “Whoa – that person hit it big – like just out of no where.” The real story is not where that person is today, but the what, why, and how they spent their time and energy in the months and years prior to making it. More specifically what they learned and applied along the way, and how they coped with set backs and the ever present feeling anxiety of failure. I’m not on the cover of Forbes, but I will share my journey from the main stage at WCMIA.
January 23, 2019 — The final panel will be a mix of prepared questions and moderated (to control length tone and moderate quality) audience questions to turn some of the aspirational and motivational points back into tactical practical takeaways.
Attendees will be guided through how the pieces fit together while inspiring and highlighting practical takeaways where attendees gain long-term motivation, and are able to implement immediate tactical changes when they get back to their desk.
July 18, 2017 — Learning the hard lessons the hard way is never fun. This talk will be in the form of 5 short stories on how I self-sabotaged my own career, and my business endeavors and briefly touch on how I recovered, or didn’t in some cases. Will close with 2 revelations that anyone can and should apply in their own business.
Burning the candle at both ends (2 jobs or a side job/product)
Taking on debt to make payroll as an agency
Firing slow (bad culture fits kill morale)
Swimming against the current in the community (necessary at times, but mind your tone)
All hustle, no personal time. (nothing is worth family + relationships)
Iterate, Iterate, Iterate (perseverance)
Invest in your team at every opportunity (the golden ticket)
January 18, 2013 — Is WordPress a blog, a CMS, or an event registration system? The answer is “Whatever you want it to be.”
