Running a business alone is hard, and running a WordPress design business is

before you ditch the platform and head to SquareSpace, hear me out


You’ve officially made the announcement you’re niching to web design and are off to the races (or so you thought).

Your systems are in place, you’ve pitched your first project, and you’ve even updated your bio on the ‘gram – so, yeah, it’s official! Yet, at every turn you find yourself feeling overwhelmed, discouraged, and questioning if this was the right decision.

Almost every YouTube tutorial is either outdated or overcomplicated…and your eyes glaze over the second you read through the comments. Even though the words are all about CSS, JavaScript, SEO, and plugins, all you really see is a foreign language. Does everything about WordPress have to be so hard? (Spoiler: It doesn’t!)

picture this...

confidently knowing exactly what you need to do next

Cutting through the noise to get straight to the information you need

Having a clear understanding on where you should (and more importantly) shouldn't) spend your time in WordPress

Getting the inside track on how to work with clients – and turn them into raving fans

Because there are literally thousands of design tutorials out there – but you only have so much time.

“I love watching hours and hours of YouTube videos, trying to find the exact one I need.” said no designer ever!

The internet is a big place, and it’s beyond frustrating to sit through dozens of WordPress walkthroughs…only to find out they’re from 10 years ago, super confusing, or don't even apply to the site you’re building. Not to mention, you end up investing hours of time without even getting the answers you were looking for.

You're a perfect match if you are...

A WordPress designer for service-based businesses

Feeling totally overwhelmed by trying to DIY your latest project

Curious about how to handle clients

Unsure of how to take the next steps to grow your business

You're in the right place!

other designers have asked,

so you may be wondering too

A one-hour Zoom call crafted to your specific goals and questions. We can troubleshoot a specific need, make a game plan for handling clients, or chat about the best tech stack for service providers – it’s up to you! Think of it like meeting up with your biz bestie over coffee and getting to geek out over all the tech, plugin, and design details.

$197 for an one hour call

This particular package is for a one-hour call, with limited follow-up support over Voxer. However, I will always be here cheering for your success!

Yes! I completely understand life (and germs!) sneak up out of nowhere. As long as you communicate and let me know, we can reschedule.

Hey there - I'm Steph!

I could spend hours chatting through website strategy, breaking down launch plans, and troubleshooting the trickiest of tech mayhems, but it wasn't always that way.

Rewind a few years, and you'd find me knee-deep in Google, trying to figure out what in the world an initial 'mock-up' was (and completely bombing my first web design project.) However, that very project ignited a passion within me and launched my web design business!

As a business owner, mama, wife (and all the other hats you’re wearing), I see you! You’re already juggling all the things thrown your way; setting up a new WordPress site is easy-peezy in comparison… even if you don't know the "how-to" yet.
