This is a continuation of my mastermind with Joe Casabona where we discussed alternative WordPress businesses that he is venturing into. This week we got into creating courses for the WordPress community and beyond, and how Joe is teaching others how to set up these courses to bring as much value to the attendees as possible. You can listen to part 1 here, or get to part 2 here.

That was pretty much my reaction the morning after I had accepted an offer to take over the podcast. It is already 90 episodes in and I have hosted a few of those myself as of late (including part 2 of the Joe Casabona interview to be released next Tuesday). Nevertheless, that morning I just thought to myself – why am I adding more things to my to-do list? I won’t get into all the projects I’m involved in at the moment (except for…Continue Reading “Oh Sh*t, I’m Hosting a Podcast!”

In the world of WordPress, most business ideas are centred around plugins, themes and hosting services, but there are other niches you can get into. As I get more involved with the Mastermind FM podcast, which in itself is a mastermind among WordPress business owners and those around this space, I am getting familiar with new niches. Podcasting is a fun way to get to know others better, share ideas, and to have the ability to meet those who you otherwise might not ever get…Continue Reading “A Mastermind with Joe Casabona about Alternative WordPress Businesses”

If it wasn’t for a platform such as Mastermind.FM, I would not be able to have these wonderful opportunities. Earlier this month I interview Shep Hyken, he is a customer service and customer experience expert as well as a New York Times and Wall Street Journal Best-Selling author. I came across his work while watching a Facebook live stream that I mentioned in my article about support over on WP Mayor. Shep Hyken | Speaker Demo Reel from Video Narrative on Vimeo. Shep gracefully accepted…Continue Reading “I Got to Interview Shep Hyken, a New York Times and Wall Street Journal Best-Selling Author”

Cryptocurrencies are growing in popularity, especially with the massive rise of Bitcoin. I’m no expert in them, but I have invested to see what it’s all about. I won’t go into why and how I did it, but I’ll discuss where. A vital part of that investment was choosing a wallet to work with. On some recommendations, I chose to work with Kraken. I’ve used it for many months, often not understanding what’s going on and getting practically no help from their support team. Why…Continue Reading “Coinbase or Kraken?”

After my first two experiences guest hosting for Mastermind.FM alongside Donnacha Mac Gloinn, this time around I took on the opportunity to guest host alone and interview a gentleman named Ben Pines. Ben is the mind behind the Elementor WordPress page builder plugin that has grown to have over 200,000 active installs in just one year. If you don’t know what that means, let me put it this way: their team have managed to infiltrate a sector that already had a few major players that…Continue Reading “Guest Hosting with Ben Pines for Mastermind.FM”
