Logically you know that a website, or a better built website, can increase your sales and help you reach your goals faster.

But when you’re building your business, working from the kitchen table, the money just isn’t there for expensive custom web design. And if it is, you have so many other things you need to do first - a laptop, special software, time management systems, training, taxes, groceries, an actual desk.

As a solo-preneur myself, I get it; it’s hard to prioritize a web designer when you’re just getting started!

Doing it yourself is the cheaper option, but that usually means spending hours struggling to piece together the skills you need. I’ve been there, I know how exhausting and overwhelming it can be to feel like what you need to do must be just outside your grasp, if you could just find one tutorial or one article or one something that would tell you how to do it from start to finish, you’d be set.

For years I’ve watched small business owners who are just starting out choose between crappy inexpensive website builders or struggling for months to learn to build a site in WordPress because they don’t feel like there’s another choice.

Guess what... there actually is another choice!
