3 WordPress Tips to Save Time and Money

3 WordPress Set-up Tips That Can Save You Time and Money

WordPress powers 18.9% of the web. Some of the largest, most popular websites and blogs run on WordPress. There’s a good reason for this. It’s powerful, reliable, and extremely flexible software for showcasing your online presence and publishing your own web content. WordPress has become the standard for online publishing.

What makes WordPress different from most other web software providers is that it is open source. This means that the software is constantly being improved by a community, not a corporation. There is no proprietary element to WordPress. Proprietary web software providers can’t keep up. They don’t have the advantage of thousands of developers constantly improving and innovating their software.

I’ve learned a lot over the past five years of using WordPress myself and my goal is to share what I’ve learned with you in order to help you save time and money. Aside from graphic design and extensive coding, there isn’t much I can’t do with WordPress today.

If you’re thinking about using WordPress to power your website, blog, or a hybrid version of the two, here are some tips that can help you avoid the pitfalls that can cost you dearly over the long haul.

Life can become more scary as we age and hesitate to take on new challenges due to the perceived risks involved.

how to discover your business passion

3 Ways to Discover Your Business Passion

Are you building an online presence and business model around something you’re passionate about?

Seems like an easy enough question to answer doesn’t it? In reality, sometimes it is not completely obvious until you do some soul searching and analyzing to determine your true business passion. If your business generates income for you, but you’re not passionate about what you are doing, ultimately you are not going to be fulfilled. To the extent that you can align your business with something that you are truly passionate about, you will be much more successful in the long run.

Finding your business passion will give you the energy and enthusiasm you need to stay on track, push through the hard times, and out-hustle your competitors. Business passion fosters business sustainability.

How to Stick to Your Commitments

A life commitment could be a personal goal, a relationship, or even a project you want to complete. A business commitment can be finishing something you start to following through on delivering what you’ve promised. It can also be stating publicly that you plan to do something or launch something, and following through on that statement.

Some commitments are easy, and some are difficult. The reason we avoid making difficult commitments is because we are afraid.
