228 – ‘J’ is for Jobs

'J' is for Jobs - WP Builds Weekly WordPress Podcast #228

This episode is about all the many, many, many jobs that you do each and every time you build a WordPress website for yourself or for a client. There really are so many! I’m not too sure that I do quite as much as David does, because, as you’ll hear, he’s does rather a lot. From setting hosting and email, from forms to security, this episode could have gone on for a long time. Maybe you treat each project individually, or have a template that you keep coming back to. Go listen to the podcast today and tell us what you think…

138 – Are we happy with how we manage tasks?

Are we happy with how we manage tasks? - WP Builds WordPress podcast

Today, the podcast talks about tasks. Not so much the tasks themselves, but more the way that we approach them. We discuss the way that different people have the ability to move happily from task to task, whilst other people need to complete one task before they can move onto another one. I guess that there’s no ‘right’ way to accomplish tasks, but it’s interesting to see whether or not we think that other people’s approaches are batter than our own. It’s a fun episode for sure!

87 – Could Plutio be your all in one business software?

87 - Could Plutio be your all in one business software?

If you listen to this podcast with any regularity then you’ll know that I’m (Nathan) a sucker for a new app. Mostly I hear about a new app, signup for a trial and play with it for a few days. Sometimes, although rarely, I continue to use the app and pay for it. Such is the case with Plutio. It’s a SaaS app that I’ve been using for a few months now because I just like it so much. I also like the founder, Leo Bassam, the guest on this week’s podcast. I like the app because it replaces quite a few apps that I was using in the past, and I like Leo because he’s just so positive about Plutio. The app does tasks, invoices, proposals, timesheets, client management and more. Go check it out…
