Clint Warren: How WordPress Saved His Career
Think about why you ventured into client services.
Did you quit your cushy day job for extravagant visions of the 4 Hour Work Week? Perhaps you are purposely driven to help others accomplish their goals through consulting and technology.
Whatever might be at the root of your calling, today’s guest will put you in your place. He’ll challenge you to think of the why you’re doing what you’re doing. Force you to realize that no one other than yourself — not even me — can help you achieve your level of success. So where did he learn these lessons?
Still interested? I thought so. Meet my good friend, Clint Warren.
I remember my first talk about the Matt Report podcast back at WordCamp Boston 2012. There was this jacked dude, sitting in the front row, with laser beams in his eyes. I tend to walk side to side during my presentations. I don’t know why, it’s just this thing that I do. As I moved around the floor, he didn’t drop eye contact for one single second, which lead me to wonder:
- Is this guy going to rush tackle me?
- Is he calling bullshit on everything I’m saying?
After my talk was finished, I saw him approaching me. Shit. Here we go. Can I hide behind Jake? He reached out, shook my hand, and said that he really enjoyed the presentation. Phew! We chatted about his business and what he was up to. He had a real passion in his voice and determination to make it successful. If there was anyone in the audience that was going to make a splash, it was him.
That guy, if you haven’t already guessed it, was Clint.
Since our first meeting, his hustle has brought him to a new level of success. He runs his own digital agency, has a WordPress training platform, successfully ran WordCamp Connecticut 2014 and now is set to win in the coaching space.
