Whether you’re working on a new business idea and trying to get it off the ground, working side-by-side with your loved one, or juggling your job and home all while starting your new business, time management is the most important step to success in every area. Take it from me, You HAVE to protect your personal or relaxing time, but you also have to dedicate to each area of your life, or you will not succeed. You only have so much time in a day and must accomplish something for your business each day. Here are a few things that help me out.
This list of 5 Genesis plugins that we use on “almost” every website is by no means comprehensive or exhaustive of the myriad of plugins available for the Genesis Framework. In addition, all of these plugins are free and readily available in the wordpress plugin repository.

It’s easy to get overwhelmed when you’re searching for a WordPress theme to use for your new website design. There are tens of thousands available. Some are free, some you have to pay for and in most cases… you get what you pay for. Most themes are not intuitive for your average business owner to just “throw a website together”, free or paid, and can end in frustration for the end user. Which then leads to a call to a company such as ours to fix and/or finish the website.
So, how do you end the frustration? How can you make it easier on yourself? [Read more…]
I recently had a client who needed to link to content using the “Memberships” plugin by WooCommerce. The issue here is that there is really no way to link to “membership only” content in an easy fashion. Not the products, but actual content. So, when you add pages or posts to the website and then attach them to be viewed only by certain members via the Memberships plugin, your members can link to their content from their My Account page.
So, I hired a guy on Fiverr.com ( https://www.fiverr.com/sukhchain_singh ), and he did the work for me.
There were a number of people who own this plugin who wanted the file he manipulated, so here it is as a .txt file since I can’t upload .php files:
I added the file to a woocommerce file in my child theme. (yourchildtheme/woocommerce/myaccount/my-memberships.php)
I did find one small glitch, but worth passing over to get the functionality. When the membership that was purchased displays on the My Account page, the link will go to whatever page you add to that membership last. So if you have several pages that are a part of the membership, remember to add the page you want to link to last.
Let me know if anyone has any questions, but please don’t ask about the code, I didn’t write it! 🙂
