Resources Directory

One of the greatest joys a person receives is giving knowledge and power to others. If you are to ask me about any of my experiences, I am likely to refer you to a resource included on this page. From time to time, I change products and services, but rest assured, they are an excellent product/service if I have them listed on this page. In full disclosure, I may receive a commission for use/purchases from some of the links on this page. They help support this site and my ability to share information with you. Please let me know if you need help with any resource that I recommend as I want your experience to be like mine.

Internet Marketers:

Some of the best internet marketers have very different styles, and yet are producing outstanding results. There are two people specifically that I’ll recommend. They have great programs to help people learn more about online business, but they require sweat equity and commitment to have the kind of success they have.

  • John Chow teaches people “How to make money online”, and is a great friend of mine. John is about the same age as I am, and we’ve connected several times. He’s also the first person I connected with from the affiliate marketing industry. John runs his business like clockwork and lives life to the fullest as you’ll see.
  • Pat Flynn is another internet marketer with a very different style from John. I know Pat from a forum I was a member of when Pat started out, called Internet Business Mastery. Pat turned a disaster into a gold mine when he lost his job at an architectural firm and launched Smart Passive Income. I admit, I’m jealous of Pat because I knew way more than him when he got started and he blew my doors off by working hard and sticking to his game plan. He’s got my respect.

I’ve known for a long time how Pat and John have built their businesses, and mine was well on the way when I removed my blog for personal reasons. Now, I am coming back, with a stronger plan than ever to build a blog that focuses on my passions while proving that anyone will make money online if you follow people like Pat and John, and apply the principles that they are teaching their readers.

Web Hosting:

  • My recommended choice for web hosting is WPEngine. It is a premium WordPress hosting company that features staging so that your site doesn’t break while it is live. The servers are optimized and tested with the best configurations for WordPress before they go live, and they are always up to date. Sign up for WPEngine and get 20% off your first invoice.

WordPress Themes

Thousands of WordPress themes exist, but a small number are of the quality and have stable backing like the ones I use when building my sites.

  • StudioPressStudio Press ranked as my preferred WordPress platform for many years because of their vast selection of prebuilt child themes.
  • Elegant Themes – About a year ago, I moved to the Elegant Themes platform for more flexibility. I specifically chose the DIVI theme to build on, and now use it exclusively because of the constant release of new options and controls. DIVI from Elegant Themes is by far my favorite platform when I’m building WordPress sites.

I do have a few friends that prefer the Studio Press Genesis Framework platform, and I respect their choice. Either company offers a great option for building WordPress sites that are capable of producing excellent results.

And, if you need somebody to build your site for you, just let me know as I do web design and business consulting.
