Burning Too Much Sweat Equity
I regularly see new site owners burn 80 hours of sweat equity muddling through the learning curve of building their own theme only to have to hire a pro designer in the end anyway.
And usually the base design is so far away from best design and usability practices that having the designer start over from scratch is faster and cheaper than trying to fix that mess.
Save Time and Money
My Gutenberg Ninja course coupled with Michelle’s Astra tutorials get you started the fun, easy way.
You’ll literally go step-by-step through learning all of the wonderful things you can do with Gutenberg that will give you tons of design ideas.
And those ideas will completely change your thinking about what base theme you want to start with.
Astra is a super fast, super easy to work with theme framework.
And thanks to Michelle’s tutorials, you’ll walk step-by-step through the bulk of your own design.
Then you can always call in a pro for the final tweaks.
And she won’t have to start over from scratch, either!
Get Started on the Right Foot
Michelle and I have teamed up to bring you the real-world info you need to avoid expensive pitfalls in both time and money.
We are committed to your success.
And education is a BIG part of that.
It’s a whale of a lot easier on everyone if you can get started the right way, the first time, and create a nice clean, fast site with great User Experience, that makes you more money.
And that’s what these live chats are all about.
