Hello, I’m Chris

I’m a Husband to 1. Father to 4. Director of the WP Mantis Partner Program. A Marketing and Communications Consultant. I blog about business, marketing, communication, WordPress, and Faith in Business.

A little background (my story):

My entrepreneur journey started in 2007 when I decided to start my own business after being downsized at my corporate job.

The goal was to teach business owners how to use blogs to market their business, a no-brainer today (I’d like to think), but not so revolutionary then!

Because of the lack of interest from business owners (a.k.a money) I was forced to accept the first paying gig that came my way, website development.

How hard could it really be?!!

Turns out, when you don’t know what you’re doing and pre-todays technology, it was pretty dang hard.

This was at a time where web based website builders were scares and WordPress was, well, just basic WordPress. No fancy themes and page builders like we have today.

However, I decided to jump into WordPress. I loved the interface the available resources, themes and plugins (available at the time).

To condense things a bit…

After months of long days and late nights taring apart WordPress themes rebuilding them and the repeated attempts at building new “test” sites, I was getting the hang of this newly discovered passion.

It was mid 2008 when I really started to make $money$ with WordPress.

Over the years I became known as the “fixer”.

Really, I’m a problem solver! 

I love a good challenge. It’s in the search for the solution that I really excel.

Today, I still have a business dedicated to providing WordPress Support and Website Solutions for small businesses, however I have been blessed to be able to do more.

I’ve also become a consultant for companies wanting to improve their marketing and communication, both internally and externally.

If you need a reliable and knowledgeable growth consultant, an instructor or guide to a better business, let’s talk! I’d love to meat you and learn more about you, your business, and your goals.

Something(s) Interesting About Me…

Five Finger Branding

If we’ve met me or you’ve seen me speak, you know I wear very different shoes. Most say they think they’re cool, but others say they’d never do business with me because they’re so strange.

No matter what your opinion, I invite you to think about the branding power that is involved in me wearing these shoes everywhere I go and everywhere I present. People always remember the shoes, and it’s very rear that I don’t get asked about them. Great conversation starter ;-).
