This post is in response to Johan Gouws.
The question was (paraphrased and summarized): How do you side hustle with kids and a full-time job? How do you schedule meetings, etc?
I answer this question on this episode and I also share a realization that I’ve come to after starting to do this full time.
Entrepreneurs control their schedule, wink wink.
Enjoy the show!

Moral of the story, stack your money! We’re entrepreneurs. Our minds are a flood of ideas and projects that could potentially be the next million dollar hit! We try and fail, and try and fail, and then try some more, and probably fail. But it only takes that one time… Read MorePost Views: 131
Today we have Kim Doyal on the podcast. Kim is also known as the WordPress Chick. Up until 8 years ago she worked in retail then she decided to make the most of her life and start her business online.
She now creates products, consults, and coaches. She’s not a developer but she has her hands in so many different aspects in the online world.
Things You’ll Learn:
- Why it’s ok say no, regardless of the money.
- Tools that Kim uses that have helped her grow her business.
- How important it is to find a mentor and/or teacher who works for you.
- Why you don’t have to be a developer to be successful.
- What advice Kim has for people who want to take their business to the next level.
Kim shares little things that she’s figured out that have helped her be more successful and productive than she would be otherwise. She explains that her biggest revelation has been to focus on her because it’s important to realize that you have to choose how you work and who you work with so you can have the best results from your business.
Sometimes you have to say no to a project or a client, regardless of the money. A lot of times this can be scary because the thought that you’re saying no to the money is scary, but Kim explains that she has found that when she says no to something she knows won’t work for her, she’ll come across a project that will work even better for her. You have to be willing to say no because as Kim says, if you don’t value yourself, your clients won’t either.

When Kim first started online she worked hard to learn about CSS and HTML coding as well as sites like WordPress and Joomla. She found herself saying yes to a lot of projects that she wasn’t completely sure how to do so she would have to figure things out on her own to get it done.
She talks about how when she first started she was worried people wouldn’t like or agree with what she was saying, but she found that after making a few products and posts she found her voice.
I saw a comment on Facebook the other day and this person was saying they believe that you should always disclose to a client if you use a page builder. I asked Kim what her thoughts were on this… her answer was amazing and what I’ve been speaking about since forever! lol
Enjoy the episode and I’ll leave you with this:
Once you find how what works for you and you get clear with your clients, you will be able to take your business to the next level.Post Views: 82
Hey, what’s up everyone!? This episode took me 3 tries to finally get done. The reason is because I initially had no idea what to talk about. So after recording 2 Devbits, I just went for it. This is the final result and I have to say, I’m pretty proud.
Here’s what you’re going to get out of this episode:
- Learn about the benefits of networking and how it worked for my business.
- Some updates on what’s going on in my life/business.
- My Pet Peeve with Facebook Groups and some more information on mine and why you should join it or any other facebook group for that matter.
- Why I haven’t rapped on my outros recently.
- BeaverBuilderVideos.com and why this plugin is amazing and how I’m adding more value if you ever use it!
- How I validated the BeaverBuilderVideo site.
- The benefits of a thank you / confirmation page.
- The awesome effects of up-sells.
- Let’s be friends on FB.
- How I manage all these damn businesses and podcasts and videos.
- DevDiaries are coming to this site real soon, but for now, check them out on YouTube.
I suck at show notes and I procrastinate, for those that need everything to be perfect, sorry, not me. Hope you get some great value from this episode.
