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 […]
Pricing a premium plugin is hard. I’ve written publicly about the multiple pricing options for Sprout Invoices and after this weekend at WordCamp LAX talking to a lot of great people, I’ve already concluded improvements to streamline and simplify purchasing are needed. However, the pricing structure won’t change anytime soon, even if EDD discount codes don’t like it. For the upcoming WordCamp and WPAPPStore promotions I need to […]
This tweet really bothered me when I first read it this afternoon. If you're in business and have no intention of going big, just go work for someone else. Seriously. — Justin Sainton (@JS_Zao) August 29, 2014 Personally, I don’t want anyone to be discouraged from going on on their own. I don’t know where […]
I have been releasing plugins and themes since the early days (~1.0) and I’ve been doing professional WordPress development for 6 years, but I only recently realized that I’ve become out of loop with the WP community.

There was a lot of ups and downs in 2010: I met most of my business goals/resolutions, as a family we built some great friendships and we ended up buying a home; the downs are too personal to share but our friends and family have helped. The goals/resolutions I posted last year: Improve my acquisition process […]
Just added my latest project to the sproutventure portfolio and I’m proud of this site. It was a site I developed for a family friend and it ended up being a great opportunity to build out the custom classes I already had for memberships & paypal payments and make them sudo frameworks for for future development. Check out […]
[cross posted from the Sprout Venture Blog] Welcome to the new SproutVenture.com website. I hope you like what you see, it’s been a lot of work to get from where we were to where we are now. Why the change? Even though our old site served it’s purpose of providing basic company information and some […]

I’m a couple days late in writing these but I’ve been thinking about them for a while now. Most of my 2010 resolutions are centered around my business at Sprout Venture, however, as a “small business” owner I feel my success and dedication effects my family the most. So, while I talk the business talk […]
