I always find that the hardest part of setting up a WordPress Business of any kind is knowing where to start. It’s rarely about the skills, experience or lack of drive, it’s mostly about knowing the right steps to getting started.

He talks about the challenges of a WordPress maintenance business, his idea of teaching clients to manage their own websites, and how running a business affects his private life.
Little vulnerabilities are usually more dangerous than the big ones, they go by unnoticed until they get taken advantage of. It’s easy to miss them, unless someone points them out to you very obviously.
