Join me for Taking The Leap & WordPress Security talks this Wednesday!

On March 26, 2014 I’ll be presenting two – yes count them two –  free talks sharing a bit of my knowledge on entrepreneurialism and web development.  You still have time to join me and my fellow Creative Corridorians at the events (see signups/info below).

Vault Startup School:
Lunch w/ Joshua McNary [Beta]: Take the Leap, a Step-by-Step Process

Taking The Leap Preview Slide

During my year long journey to entrepreneurship, I went through a number of phases which will help you consider your next step. It started with an internal epiphany — there is no such thing as a secure job. Despite a comfortable job with my former employer, I began a process of discovery in asking for guidance, help, and suggestions from trusted mentors, family, and friends to come to the point of finally deciding it was the right time to make my dream a reality. It was then time to act – setting a new venture up for success.

At noon Wednesday at Vault Co-working, I’ll share my story, help lower your internal barriers to taking the leap, and take you one step closer your chasm of opportunity.

WordPress Corridor Meetup:
Making WordPress More Secure

Based on years of experience in webdev and a recent blog post, I’ll be speaking at our monthly WordPress Meetup regarding security. Since WordPress is the world’s most popular website/blogging platform, I am often confronted with the question of security.  I use it for many of my projects.  While WordPress has improved in this area over the years, it is still a big target to any nefarious actors out there looking to ruin your day.  There are a number of steps I take on all of my (and my clients’) WordPress sites to avoid potential security problems.

Also Wednesday at Vault Co-working, this time in the evening at 5:15PM, I’ll share how you can use these tips to help keep your site secure.
