A Story is Worth More Than Your Prototype (Building a Better Business Part 3)

For many in the WordPress space, when an idea strikes it's easy to drop what you're doing and spend a couple of days building a prototype or MVP. But if you’re actually going to try to build a business off of this idea, should you whimsically work on it and release it to the world? I would argue no. In fact, crafting a story is more important than crafting a product at first. Brought to you by GoDaddy Pro.

Your Virtual Event is not a WordCamp

A topic that’s come up for me multiple times over the last six months iswhether or not speakers should be paid. I had a debate with Nathan Wrigley about it at the end of last year. That debate was based on an article I wrote back in October called, “We need to talk about speakers and virtual events.” But beyond paying speakers, we need to treat them with decency. We need to value their time and not treat them like they are just here to serve us and our cause. And that’s what we’re talking about today.
