Open Office Hours 2021


Have a quick question? Want to talk to a human? Call me during Open Office Hour.

Here is how it works: Once a week, on WEDNESDAY between 1 pm and 2 pm (Eastern Standard Time) I have my phone on and will answer whoever calls me to talk.
(the number is 315-600-8893). 

I sometimes offer this as a flash special offer but I don’t offer this on any national holiday.
No Office Hours on the following days in 2021: (subject to change as needed)

This is a great way to get free advice from me. It’s a first-come, first-served offer.  I don’t make any sort of appointments during this time, and I will talk to whoever calls for as long as they need. I will talk as long as my speech stays understandable.  When I get tired I often loose the ability to speak due to the signals that my brain processes after having a brain injury.

Of course, you are free to call that number anytime, but the chances are almost zero that I’ll answer if it is not Open Office Hour. And I pretty much don’t return phone message calls, ever.  See my email policy as an alternative way to work with me.

Topics to ask me about: Well, you can ask me anything, but I’m most likely to have a decent answer for questions about:

WordPress (blogs, blog sites, plugins, themes, “can WordPress do this?”, “what product or solution is better for me”, hosting, upgrading, common errors

Web Development (design, content, staging, testing, domain registration, moving a site to a new host, working local vs live, backups, migrations, tools, html, css, coding, working with customers, conversion of leads. getting paid and setting rates

Virtual Assistant Freelancing – just starting out, part time, work from home, subcontracting, working as a behind the scenes as a support person, file management, time management, leadership

Digital Marketing – email lists and marketing campaigns, autoresponders, creating and delivering courses, sales funnels, landing pages, creating freebies,

Online Learning and Training adult learning, virtual teaching, engagement with learners, curriculum development, performance and skill building, evaluation

So if you’ve been wondering whether there’s a plugin that does what you need? Call and ask. If you’re not sure how to configure that plugin once you install it? Call and ask. If you need help figuring out how exactly to install that plugin in the first place? Call and ask. And of course you can ask about my cats, the weather, what wineries in the Finger Lakes to visit, best back roads for a riding route for motorcycling or how my garden is growing.

I borrowed the idea of an Open Office Hour from Wendy Cholbi (https://www.wendycholbi.com/).
Back in the 1990’s when I learned how to create those first websites I bought training from Wendy Cholbi and Pamela Wilson (Big Brand Systems). They created some of the best trainings out there for folks wanting to learn about web development.

Got a question? Wondering if, or how, I can help you? Use this quick and easy form to send me an email. I will respond as soon as I am able to. Sometimes I need a nap to recharge those brain cells that got affected by a brain injury and stroke.
