2014, Opportunity Loss

I hoped to write a “2014 Review” post last Thursday (the 1st) but I took the family to Knott’s instead — balance, ‘m I right? Honestly, I had plenty of time to write this post, it’s not like I didn’t know how things were going weeks before. The real problem wasn’t time, it’s that while I have […]

First! props.

A big change since I started Sprout Apps is putting aside time to contribute back to WordPress more. In the past my excuse of not contributing was always time but honestly bad experiences within core conversations and my lack of confidence held me back. I’ve come to realize my excuses suck and that I have a lot to benefit from […]

Refunds

Over at Sprout Apps I respect our customers and I try to make that as clear as possible in our Terms. However, there’s one condition: we ask, no expect, respect in return. Today I’ve been dealing with a customer that’s having a bit of buyers remorse. They’ve learned that their sales staff doesn’t want to use Sprout Invoices and […]

#WCSF or was it #WCSF14

I’ve been to a lot of the San Francisco WordCamps, including the first, and this year’s was the best for me. Everything seemed completely different. My approach was definitely different this year than any other. Instead of shying away from conversations I embraced them. From the conversations I had I was able to get some great feedback for Sprout Apps, and more […]

Transitioning from Services to Products is Hard

When writing my travel+productivity woes I found myself thinking about reevaluating what I deemed as a “product day”. In the past I could easily look back at the end of the day (or week) and see something tangible to judge. Even without billable hours to evaluate, I could look at the functionality/features/code I created and judge progress and easily […]

Travel Hangovers & Productivity

I’m finding that I’m not nearly as productive the days surrounding my travel; which sucks because I’ve been traveling since the beginning of September and I won’t be finished for another few weeks. Don’t get me wrong though, I’ve enjoyed the time off with family and friends; maybe too much since I’m rather unmotivated to jump back into […]

Developers: Stop Blaming Your Users

If you’re a developer and release code to the public: own your mistakes don’t blame your users for them. — Dan Cameron (@dancameron) September 10, 2014 Someone on the Advanced WordPress Facebook group posted this about how he was frustrated how plugin updates were being handled by a certain developer. That arena is definitely not the […]

EDD Recurring Payments & Discounts: Solution

As a follow to my EDD Recurring Payments & Discounts: Proposal I’d like to share my solution. Let me set this up for you first. Here’s the pricing options for Sprout Invoices. Note: the customer pays the “Signup Fee” and the “Price” initially, I’ve written about a proposal to change this already. The discount is for 25% off […]
