Building a WordPress Business Q&A Panel

Join this panel discussion featuring Chris Lema, Cory Miller, & Carl Hancock for a deep and informative look at how to build your business around WordPress. Learn how to take the plunge and start your startup, then grow it into a healthy team.

We’re diving deep into the world of building a flourishing WordPress business. The topics here aren’t strictly specific to WordPress, but sage wisdom from brilliant community members who have each found incredible success thanks, in part, to WordPress.

With the experience that can only come from starting and running five start-ups, Chris Lema is going to tackle the challenges of growth, particularly when it comes to growing the internal team. Whether you’re a solopreneur looking to hire #2, or a small team of engineers looking to hire your first marketing person, his tips, strategies, and lessons learned (mistakes) will help.

Cory Miller will introduce us to his passion for being a great leader, and running a successful company. Cory loves his team like a family, and he wants to teach you to do the same. When you view your team like a family, a profound and powerful thing happens: it helps you to go farther together than you ever could individually.
