WordPress, the Community and Your Mental Health - WordCamp Bristol 2019

602 views

Published on

Back in 2009 I discovered the power of WordPress. In 2012 I met the WordPress community. In 2016 I relied on the community!

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.

WP&UP supports & promotes positive mental health within the WordPress community.
