It’s that time of year. The time of year where we tend to lose focus, and we start to lose motivation to do work. For those of us in the United States, we are stuffed.
We will now give ourselves permission to listen to Christmas music and think about the parties that come with the holidays.
Before you give up all hope to work, don’t forget we still have a month left! And today, I am going to offer up some events you need to mark on your calendar, including the WP Agency Summit.
So, saddle up, my friend. Let’s ride.
WP Agency Summit launches next week
With 2020 just around the corner, many of us are thinking about how we can grow our business.
Oh, what am I saying? We all are thinking about growing our business always!
Jan Koch has helped us get a jump on doing just that, growing our business.
He took on a massive undertaking by deciding to create the WP Agency Summit, and the speakers are among the who’s who of WordPress professionals.
If you are struggling with a particular area, chances are the summit will address that need.

Black Friday Deals
It’s that time of year where we are all looking for our Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals.
Smart Web Creators and WP Builds provide two of the best pages in our industry.
Smart Web Creators launched their page earlier this month, and it has multiple deals for multiple areas of business.
The site has nine different categories for deals, including various tools, courses, hosting, domains, membership course plugins, plugins for SEO, site care, optimization, page builders, themes, and much more.
You will find the same kinds of deals over at WP Builds. The website by the popular podcast has a plethora of great deals in the WordPress ecosystem ranging from lifetime deals to 20% off.
If you can’t find the deal you need from one of these two pages, you may have a hard time finding it. WP Builds and Smart Web Creators have two of the most exhaustive lists available.
