June 23, 2019 — Nearly a decade ago I started working in support at WPMU DEV, right on the front line. Our team wasn’t big, it was less than 10. Sometimes it could feel somewhat isolating. James, our CEO, would check in from time to time to see how I was and even provide some feedback. It didn’t take too long until I was promoted to Head of Support and it was then my job to find incredible people. I had a decision to make at that point, what kind of a manager did I want to be?
June 5, 2019 — Eight years ago I was a one Gal Band running my WordPress business on lots of coffee and late nights and systems held together by a wing and a prayer and a bit of sellotape. This had to stop. Since then I’ve scaled my business with people, policies and systems, so I work with more clients in a less stressful way, and enjoy life an awful lot more!
In my session I will focus on:
– making your first hires – considering off-shore? I’ll share my experiences, good and bad!
– when to grow your team – spot when you are ready!
– cutting down on confusion – developing robust communication and planning systems for your team and clients to minimise miscommunication as you expand.
– creating your business manual – sounds dull but is the lifeblood of your business – I will show you how to create a living document that grows with you.
Learn from my mistakes while I share my own short cuts to avoiding burnout and loving your WordPress business more.
