If you want to start your own business but the techy side of things such as building a website is slowing you down (or has stopped you dead in your tracks) then keep reading because today, you are taking one giant leap forward!
You see, the problem with the typical website course is they make an awful lot of assumptions about our technical knowledge on how to build a website. I like to say the course teachers “leap” from one lesson to the next leaving out really critical in-between steps we non-techy’s need to know.
For example, they tell you to go buy your domain name. Then they tell you to go find and pay for a web host. And then tell you to go ahead and install WordPress.
HOWEVER, there are soooo many steps in the middle that the course creator assumes you know (which you don’t) that leaves you dead in the water before you can even begin. 😕 Even my own business coach tells me she struggles with this same thing!
I have a friend who worked for the government for over 30 years, and while she enjoyed her job, she was ready to retire. However, when she looked closer at her retirement savings, she realized she didn’t have enough to support herself for the rest of her life.
As she began to explore her options, she stumbled upon the idea of starting her own business. She had always been interested in entrepreneurship and saw this as an opportunity to do something she loved while also securing her financial future.
But she also knew that starting a business would require a lot of work, especially when it came to creating a website.
Since she didn’t have the funds to pay someone to do it, she hunted around on the Internet for a solution. After weeks of research, she finally found an online course to teach her everything she needed to know to build her website.
“Amy Bair is a patient, insightful and knowledgeable person. She fed me great ideas during the development of the sight(sic). I will hire again anytime.”
Unfortunately, most website-building courses assume you know all the tech jargon and have some web-building skills already in your back pocket.
They skip critical teaching steps because they assume (incorrectly) you know what needs to be done in between.
In other words, VERY discouraging to the mere mortal who wants to build their own website but is genuinely starting from square 1.
Is there a course out there for the rest of us?
I have created a set of lessons that truly walk you through step by step how to build your own website using a software called WordPress. You see, even though I have a Master’s degree in Information Management when I first started building my own website in 2011, I too started from square 1, and it was soooo frustrating!
I had NO idea how to do things like
✔️Buy a domain name
✔️Find a decent web host that would protect my beloved website from predators in Russian basements
✔️Connect my new domain name to that website
✔️Install WordPress (And where exactly do I get WordPress from?)
✔️Add my new logo
✔️Know the difference between a post and a page and what purpose each served
✔️Figure out what pages I needed on my site
✔️How to add those pages to the site
✔️What to SAY ON THOSE PAGES?!?
✔️Put a menu at the top
✔️Make sure the website looked good on a cell phone
✔️Keep the website updated
✔️Create an email address with my domain name in it
And on and on and…
But over the years I learned and even turned it into the business I have today, where I not only build websites for companies that range from the kitchen table startup to multiple 6-figure incomes but I also get to coach and train people who want to build their own website but aren’t sure where to begin. 💪
My course does all of that plus much, much more.
I give you what I call a ‘DIY over-the-shoulder, nothing missed’ online workshop for how to build your website. In other words, you will see my screen and watch me do the steps you will then be able to do on your own site.
PLUS, I will show you how to make your website gorgeous, captivating, and enticing to prospective buyers who discover it while searching for a hero like you to solve their problem. We will also talk about what to say on your new web pages to make your prospect decide they want to do business with you.
LASTLY, and this is what NO OTHER WordPress course does, we will have Live Office Hours where you can get on a call with me.
Along with your other DIY’ers, I will answer all the burning questions you have regarding building your site. These calls will be recorded so you can go back to them afterward and listen as many times as you want.

An over-the-shoulder DIY course for the non-techies of the world who want to build their own WordPress website.
Hey there. I’m Amy
When I built my first WordPress website back in 2011, I didn’t know what a web host was.
Even though I held a Bachelor’s and Master’s in Information Systems/Management, I had no idea how to build a website. In fact, I actually started building them because every prospect I spoke with (for a totally unrelated business, mind you) asked me if I knew how to build websites.
I had no earthly idea what I was doing.
BUT, I took the hint really quickly and taught myself how to build WordPress websites-which frankly, in 2011 was a bit painful!
In 2016, the cards all fell into place, and I turned my entire company upside down to focus solely on building websites for small businesses, which I have been doing ever since.
Over the years, I have seen the disconnect between how WordPress is taught and the assumption course creators make about how tech savvy their students are.
This is not an age thing either.
I have met 20-year-olds who don’t know what a web host does (it’s the company that houses your website) to 70-year-olds who know more than me.
As I moved into my 50’s and retirement came onto my radar finally, I began to really notice in my coaching groups a large number of almost retirees or already retired who wanted or needed to supplement their income (or simply wanted to keep busy).
Of course, they all realize they need a website for their budding business. And to their credit, this group does NOT want to hire someone to build their site. They want to do it themselves!
However, many in this group don’t know where to begin when building a website. I see them buy their domain name and then stop because they aren’t sure of the next step AND there isn’t any really good instruction out there for what to do next.
I have also noticed over the years that there is no single source to get all the info we need to actually finish the site, make it look polished and professional, and speak to our prospects in a way that will make them want to buy our offer. (Ask me how I know that? 😉)
So I decided to do something about it!
On a more personal note, I am a Florida transplant with 3 amazing, grown children, no grandchildren <yet>, and am married to a sweet-as-pie disabled vet who is currently a Ph.D. candidate (History) working on his dissertation (Civil War medicine). He should be finished by mid-2024 (Thank goodness – but don’t tell him I said that, k?!?).
I work from home, and in fact, when you and I get on our Live Office Hours together, you will see my office also doubles as my sewing room. I like to keep it real, so don’t hide that part of me behind the veneer of a polished, expensive business-looking office. This way, I can be who I am, and you can be who you are!
