Introduction

I discovered WordPress in 2007. In 2008, I seriously dove into it and was creating sites for clients. I started teaching people how to use it in 2010.

Prior to that I owned a successful marketing and graphic design firm for 20 years. Because of this experience I bring a lot to the table when it comes to helping people with WordPress.

I guess it really depends on your needs. I have had several users who are just using one Genesis child theme, and it has been more than worth it to them to have the ability to go in and do so much without knowing code :)

Hey if any of you are selling your books or ebooks using WooCommerce with your WordPress site, here is something that will make your product page even more useful to your readers. Get yourself the WooCommerce Tabs Manager extension, and you can add custom tabs.

You will see here, besides the description and reviews, I was also able to add Table of Contents and the Introduction. 

Here is one of the pages that we are using it on.

And here is a post showing you how to use the extension.
