Who Am I?
My name is Jesse Guthrie and I want to help you succeed online with web design involving WordPress. I love helping people learn WordPress, my family (my 2 year old Mason and wife Heather), and living a healthy lifestyle.
My Experience and How It Can Help You
Are you looking to learn how to build great looking, modern websites or start a career in web design using WordPress? Look no further, I Jesse Guthrie ( The WP Consultant) have your back!
Let me start off with saying that I was in your shoes before. I graduated college way back in 2008 and wanted to do something with website design all my life. I KNEW the future was in the internet and I wanted to be able to do something with it! My bachelor degree had nothing to do with web design, infact it had me steering to a career in help desk IT support. I actually got a job doing it and on the first day ended up quitting because I knew that I did not want to deal with people complaining all day long who didnt even know how to use a keyboard. It just wasnt something I could see myself doing for the rest of my life. Not me (and I hope not you too!)
But as I finished my final year at college, I had already started learning what I could about a new way to build a website, and it was called WordPress. I knew if I wanted to really be able to do anything or make a living from something on the internet, I had to be able to build a website somehow and not pay someone thousands of dollars to create one for me. So I dove right in, reading everything about it and watching, listening to the materials that were out there so I too could build a website using WordPress. At the time (2007-2008) WordPress was just starting out so finding resources was not easy! WordPress actually was first mainly used as just a blogging tool and not really a way to build a website. It was a long road!
