Pressware, Publishing, and Passion

We all know that WordPress is a powerful piece of software that allows almost anyone to set up a website. But when it comes to running a business using WordPress, where do we get started?

In this talk, we’re going to define two types of people who work with WordPress: Implementers and Developers.

We’ll cover the differences of each and the roles each play in providing a service to clients. Additionally, we’ll take a look at some of the things I’ve found useful when running a business based on WordPress.
