Meet John Saddington serial WordPress entrepreneur

Becoming an entrepreneur takes a special person.

Some might say passionate, driven, and even crazy.

I only have two words to describe Mr. Saddington: Focus and clarity.

If you’re running your first startup or third, you need to watch (or listen) to this interview with creator of the Standard theme, founder of 8bit, and now Chief God Mode of

Focus and clarity

This interview brought me down memory lane. Standard theme was my very first premium theme for WordPress.

Five years ago, I never thought I would be interviewing the creator of this powerful theme let alone interview the lead the developer of the current version.

During this interview, John made me realize the power of a focused mindset and having a clear vision of where you’re going.

We must clearly define who we are, what we want, and how we’re going to get there. The vision only makes the prize juicier. If you’re not constantly challenging status quo – you’re going to be stuck in the middle for quite a while.

Noticed I said, “who we are.

I feel this is the most underrated part of our careers. If we can not properly define who we are, how can we define what we offer clients? If we don’t fully understand what makes us tick, our products and services are doomed to stand the test of time.

What do you think?
