Resource Cafe

Grab a coffee and relax…

Need help with your WordPress website?

Come and join me and other business owners just like you in the WordPress Cafe. It’s a FREE WordPress Support and Help Facebook Group where you can ask your WordPress questions – without the fear of being judged or ridiculed by smarty pants developers. There’s no dumb question in this cafe, just support from like-minded business owners.

The Resource Cafe isn’t like your typical cafe. Sadly, there’s no coffee or cake available for purchase, but there’s plenty of resources to consume while having that all important coffee break.

The Resource Cafe is here to help you with your WordPress website and your business. Having been there done that with setting up 2 businesses, I can shed a little more light than most. I’ve made the mistakes and happy to share them to you, so you can hopefully have a slightly smoother journey.

My blogs cover various tips, tricks and how-to’s on websites as well as business thoughts, advice and reflections. You’ll also find links to various business tools and platforms I use and recommend to help with making business life that bit easier.

And of course, it’s relaxed enough to consume with your coffee and cake in your morning tea break. 😉

Website privacy policies, T&Cs and disclaimers should be on your website.

I know all to well that most small businesses don’t have the collateral up front to spend thousands of dollars on legals, so this is the next best thing. These documents have been put together by Australian lawyers for Australian law. Of course having these documents drawn up for your business professionally is the perfect world, these will hold you in good stead until you’re in the position to invest more.
