I would love to help you learn about WordPress (including building WordPress websites, working with WordPress sites, making them faster, maintaining them etc). If you don't know what WordPress is, it powers 23% of the internet (it is a content management system that is used to build websites). 25% of WordPress users make a full time living off of it. If you have a dream to get out of your job or to try out a new field, it can serve as an internet business in a box solution.

My brother and I built a web development business together from nothing and have been living off of the earnings from the WordPress and custom websites that we've built for multi-million dollar businesses and individual clients for the past 5 years. I'd love to share my knowledge with you!

For a little more background, I am a back end web developer, business owner and entrepreneur with extensive knowledge of WordPress, web server architecture, PHP, MVC frameworks, MySQL database design, SQL, jQuery, Git, API integrations (including Facebook, MailChimp, Mandrill, Constant Contact, Stripe, Balanced Payments, etc.), execution, QA testing and troubleshooting (also familiar with HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, and Photoshop).
