There are some ground rules for working together. Read on.

You Have Goals

If you don't know where you're going, I can't help you get there. If you don't have clear goals, or you're not prepared to work to define them, save your money.

You Have Passion

Building an business online is hard and often unglamorous. It takes a lot of work on the part of the business owner, even if someone else is writing the actual code.

If you're not passionate about your goals, there's a high chance you'll fizzle out when the going gets tough. I can't want success for you more than you want it for yourself so bring your A game and be prepared to put in the time.

You Have a Budget

It takes money to build a business. Basic sites start at $5000 and go up. If you're a start-up on a shoestring, it might be too soon to hire a full team.

If you're on a budget, read the blog for tons of tips, check out the Working Websites course and join the Working Website community for access to tutorials, training and coaching calls.

You Have an Audience

If you're starting from scratch and don't have any customers online or offline, it's going to be hard to get results. If you don't have an audience, you should be prepared to build one.

You Have a Password Management System

Chances are you don't leave your key sticking out of the door when you leave your house for the day because you know there are people who would take advantage. 

Your online business is your digital storefront and you should be prepared to keep it safe by using strong, unique logins and learning a system to manage them easily.

We love and use 1Password and 1Password for Teams.

You Have Time

If we work together I will expect your full engagement and attention to the project. That means prompt responses and feedback, doing your homework and full collaboration will give us the greatest chance of success.
