Shawn Hesketh

I'm a WordPress educator and consultant and the creator of, which has helped more than 1.5 million beginners learn how to use WordPress.

For 26 years, I enjoyed a rewarding career as a freelance designer creating logos, print materials, websites, and marketing strategies that helped my clients connect more effectively with their audience.

In 2008, I created WordPress 101, which has become one of the most popular WordPress tutorial sites in the world. Since then, my video tutorials have helped more than 1.5 million beginners learn how to use WordPress to build their own website or blog.

Today, I spend most of my time answering WordPress questions and developing new learning resources for WP101 members, helping them define and accomplish their online goals.

I also create custom screencasts and tutorial videos for clients like GoDaddy, Media Temple, WooThemes, and Yoast.

I’m an avid fan of F1 and IndyCar racing, and even raced sports cars at the local club level for many years. I enjoy traveling with my wife, Kay, and our three kids, sometimes staying in other cities for weeks at a time. As one of the co-founders of “CigarCamp,” it should come as no surprise that I also enjoy relaxing with a nice cigar and a glass of Scotch.

I love helping entrepreneurs gain clarity about how to do the things that most inspire them. Need a recommendation or some quick advice? Let’s schedule a call!
