Walk me through the step-by-step process that you went through to get to where you are today. What was the first thing you did?
I told myself the truth that it’s not going to be easy so that helped me prepare my mind.
The first thing is that I made a decision to be a website designer.
Next thing I did was to look at web designers previous work, after that I was able to decide who I should learn from.
Next thing I did was to contact the owner of the course either through mail or phone.
Paid for the course and after I watched the course I bought a domain and hosting for myself to practice what I have learnt. Some times after designing and it’s not good enough I will have to start afresh until I get something better.
How long were you running the business before you started paying yourself? How did you live through those first few months/years?
I did not really understand the reason why I should pay myself from my business at first so because of that I did not pay myself officially for one year.
If a kid walked up to asking for your advice and you only had a few minutes to give ‘em your best tip, what would it be?
Look for a skill you would love to learn and find a teacher/mention and pay the price because it will later pay you.
Do you think designing a company website can improve the company way of getting known and receiving sales?
Sure it can, At first I did not understand this aspect in website designing that’s why most of my clients did not renew their website after it expires even when I beg them to renew it but when I learnt that websites can help companies improve their sales and be more visible I did not need to beg clients to renew their sites but they pay before it expires.
What do you think about our blog current design (but mobile and pc)?
The design is fine but the loading speed is poor, work on that.
What is your say to newbies out there trying to learn web designing?
Hey newbie, most people think that website design is hard to learn but I tell you it’s very simple depending on your mindset and your willingness to learn.
