Want to build a business with WordPress?
I can help.

More than 15 years of
writing, speaking & coaching.

Since 2005 I've been working with startups, with software companies, and in the WordPress ecosystem helping teams and companies grow. I've spent tens of thousands of hours helping folks with stories & frameworks that help them make better choices. My blog posts are a great way to get started. But I'm also happy to speak at your event, or we can talk about my coaching programs.

Can I Tell You a Story?

Whether it's on a real stage, or on virtual stages (for the past 12 months), my goal is always the same – to engage an audience with stories and then surprise them with the insight.

If you're looking for a speaker for your next event or conference, let's work together to delight your audience.

My Blog's Wall of Love

Chris Lema's blog rocks! It's engaging, opinionated, actionable, concise, and easy to digest – a perfect read with the morning's cup of coffee ☕ Chris is one of the best storytellers I know – just read any of his pieces, and you'll see for yourself.

If you run a product/agency and aren't subscribed to Chris Lema's blog yet, stop what you're doing. I feel like each post is written about what I'm going through in my company at some level. A great way to start the day!

If you're not getting the traction you want, or your revenue is flat, we should probably talk.
