How to build a million dollar WordPress business

00:00 /

Every day is a new challenge

If you’re an entrepreneur or looking to grow your business — this is an amazing interview.

I’m not just talking WordPress either.

Cory is giving us advice that will work in life and in business. That’s what makes him successful. He’s seeing past clean code, optimized frameworks, dollars and cents. He’s speaking to us on a real human level. Chris Brogan would be proud.

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.

Passion is something that every single person on the team should have. The hardest part of this roller coaster ride of building a business is building that team. It’s not easy and it’s going to take it’s tolls – but the reward is amazing.

Skills can be taught, but the drive to get someone to be successful for the organization is what needs to be found. There are no rock stars, everyone is in it together.

What do you think about Cory’s story? I would love to hear your comments below.

    I use and work with all of the iThemes products daily and am building my own business based on a lot of Cory’s principles.

    Cory has been a leader, mentor and a good friend. I am so happy that he has accomplished what he has – well done!

    This interview was fabulous. I am a Web Designer and feel fortunate to have found iTheme it has been the perfect investment. The support is superb. Builder is fun and so easy to work in.

    Plus the training at has been the second best investment we have ever made.

    Thanks Chris, we searched long and hard to find a group that would help us make our business flourish.

    Matt thanks for the interview. The last fast fire questions were excellent!

    I just finished up a 9-year run in Oklahoma (serving in the Army) and had no clue they were about 70 miles away. Dangit!

    Great interview. I needed to hear a lot of this. I’ll put it to use here in Austin, TX.
