Speaker: Dan Maby

Let’s have an honest discussion about the challenges of running your WordPress business. Building your own business, no matter what size, can be one of the most rewarding, satisfying and freeing experiences you’ve ever encountered. It can also be one of the most terrifying, isolating and lonely roads to take.

Having successfully started, developed and sold businesses, Dan has first-hand experience of both the positive and negative impacts on his mental health.

Dan will talk candidly about some of his experiences and giving you some insight into his decision to launch the charity: WP&UP.
