What do you enjoy most about working in WordPress?
The people, hands down. I've made the most wonderful friends and developed some wonderful relationships with amazing people I'd never have had the opportunity to meet otherwise.
What do you love most about your Post Status membership?
The ability to converse with others who are in similar seasons of business growth and development in WordPress. I've also gotten some of my BEST hires from the Post Status job boards. It's a phenomenal resource for creators and makers in WordPress to talk about all of the things on the edges of the work we produce.
What business/web/WordPress advice do you have for others in our industry?
There are an innumerable amount of people to learn from in this space. Ask questions and share your vulnerabilities. You'll always come out better on the other side and most people genuinely don't mind chatting about their experiences. Use that education and advice to forge your own path.
