Shawn Hesketh

I'm a WordPress consultant and the creator of, which has helped more than three million beginners learn how to use WordPress.

For 26 years, I worked as a freelance graphic designer, creating logos and identity systems, print materials, websites, and marketing strategies that helped my clients connect more effectively with their audience. I learned a lot of difficult lessons… some of them the hard way.

In 2008, I created the original WordPress 101 video tutorial series. Today, it's one of the most popular WordPress tutorial sites in the world, and has helped more than three million beginners learn how to use WordPress to create their own website or blog.

I also create effective and compelling tutorial videos that will help your audience fall in love with your product or service. I've created hundreds of custom screencasts and tutorial videos for many notable clients like GoDaddy, Automattic, Namecheap, Beaver Builder, Yoast, Ninja Forms, and others. Check out for more details.

On a personal note…
I’m an avid fan of F1 and IndyCar motorsports, and raced sports cars at local tracks for many years. When I'm not in front of the computer, you'll often find me enjoying a nice cigar and whiskey with my amazing wife of 24 years, Kay. But my greatest joy in life is helping our three teenage ‘dynamos’ — Kate, Ethan, and Karis — to discover and nurture their own passions and sense of purpose.

With 32 years' experience as a solopreneur, I enjoy helping small business owners, freelancers, and entrepreneurs connect and communicate more effectively with their audience. Need help creating an online course? Or just some encouragement and quick advice? Let's schedule a call!
