How many times have you said there are not enough hours in a day?
I work for myself.
My time is my own.
So why am I always working?
Will I ever make enough money to slow down?
How can I be more productive?
Does this sound like you?
Working for yourself can be a challenge.
While it can offer flexibility, freedom and empowerment,
self-employment can also mean:
- Less job/income security without a steady paycheck
- A lack of accountability for business goals
- Little or no collaboration with peers
- Lack of confidence and awareness of best practices
- Loneliness when working alone most of the time
- A never-ending list of things to do
The key to being a happy entrepreneur is developing productive habits and finding tools and tricks to make life easier.

I love sharing ideas, suggestions, tools and tips on being more productive and running a WordPress website agency or small/solo business.

Whether it is a digital tool to help with productivity, a strategy to enhance the services I offer my clients, or a WordPress plugin that will improve the performance of the websites I create, sharing information with you is a way for me to document my progress as a business owner, while helping others who may be on the same path.
