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!

In this episode, I speak with Carrie Dils. Carrie is such a sweet heart and speaking with her was such a pleasure. She’s a developer primarily in the Genesis Framework and is currently working at Crowd Favorite. When she’s not knee deep in code, she’s doing an awesome live video podcast called OfficeHours! Used to be called Genesis Office hours, but times have changed and it’s amazing how Carrie has grown in her career.
In this episode, there’s a ton to take away. This was recorded last year when Carrie was in the middle of a transition with her career. She drops some knowledge bombs about freelancers, finding the right audience, and so much more.
I like the fact that this interview is a year old because you can here a lot of what she was doing compared to what she’s doing now, which is a pretty incredible transition. Applying the right steps, talking to the right people, and networking in general really pays off.
- Are you calling yourself a freelancer?
- Leverage your Network
- Leverage your audience! – This was one of my favorites.
- Importance of Accessibility in Web Development
- What is mobile first?
- We get into Dev Talk, tips for all you devs listening 🙂
Carrie also goes over her top 5 favorite plugins, a must use for all developers!
OfficeHours.fm – Carries Podcast
CarrieDils.com – Her Main Site
Utility Theme – Her Starter Genesis Theme
Stream – There’s another one too that I was going to sign up for and totally forgot what it was called.

Solo show baby!
I was trying to get a few guests on, but I work at night, so it’s a bit tough to get people on my grind schedule.
All good though, I ran with it, and doing solo shows is actually nice. It helps me get some thoughts out, and share all the things on my mind, with you!
In this episode…
Let me just reiterate that I suck at show notes, but here’s what I spoke about.
- Is this a WordPress Podcast?
- Why I’m doing a solo show.
- The strategy for SureFire and my new solo brand!
I share some insight as to what I’m doing, why I’m doing it, and how it will all work and come together!
Sit back, grab some beer, or coffee, or water, whatever you want, and enjoy the show!

This interview was FAN FREAKIN TASTIC!
Big shout to Brent for coming on and doing his thing. To sum up who Brent Weaver is in a short sentence: Super smart guy who built a web agency, sold it, then started UGURUS to show everyone else how to do it.
I suck at show notes plus we chatted about so many things in this episode. It runs a little over an hour, here are some of the talking points:
- Brent lived in Australia for 6 months.
- Started his business early.
- Found great success with one particular client but quickly learned not to put all your eggs in one basket.
- Are Websites a commodity? We had a fun discussion about that and the future of web design.
- We chatted about getting clients.
- How and why Brent spent 100k on his website.
And there’s so much more in this episode. Have a listen and Enjoy!!
