Here we have another throwback episode with the BEAVER GUYS!!! Well, only one Beaver guy, but I’ll have the rest on really soon. This episode is Robbie and I chatting it up. Discovering the origin of the Beaver Builder name and just having some fun.
I also realized that after reading this, in the beginning, I say “I discovered the plugin” and I meant to say “When I discovered the plugin” so please keep that in mind when you listen. 🙂
Beaver Builder has been growing like crazy over the past year, and when I spoke with Robby, they were in at the beginning. Great to see where they were and where they’re headed. Keep an eye out for the update episode!

Alas the throwback episodes must come to an end. But what a great way to end January and kick off February! In this episode, I speak with Jon Barratt.
Jon and I connected a while back. What he thought was just going to be a casual conversation, sneakily turned into a fantastic podcast.
Jon is heavily involved in the Genesis Community. He’s an amazing developer and has developed a premium, e-commerce child theme for Genesis called Envy. This theme is beautiful. In addition to themes, he also created WP-Clips. A plugin that lets you customize themes without having to worry about updates or changes. It’s like a snippet manager that’s built directly into the site. So the code is reusable, and it’s just incredible.
Besides designing and developing, Jon’s also involved in the film industry!
In this episode, we discuss all of that in detail. We also discuss YouTube Videos, different challenges that we face, my old music career, and so much more.
This is one of my favorite episodes, and I’m honored to have a new friend!

Welcome to the first episode of the Throwback Series! There’s only a few of these but it’s going to be super fun to see where these folks were at over a year ago, and then the revamped versions of where they are now.
In this episode, I interview Hani Mourra. Super cool guy, he actually works full time like me! He created the amazing suite of plugins called Simple Podcast Press, Simple Video Press, Simple Social Press, and the latest amazing plugin called Repurpose (not released yet, but soon to be).
His goal is to help people automate with the right tools to help us content creators, grow our audience!
I use 2 of the plugins on my site for videos and podcasts, and I can’t wait for the release of his new one.
Hear Hani talk about his path to creating plugins with no programming background. What started with an idea, quickly grew rapidly.
I had a great time chatting with Hani, and I’m sure you love listening to his journey.

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: 520
