Ryan Sullivan started out as a freelancer building websites for clients until his freelance business got so busy he no longer had time to go to work. So he quit his day job and founded WP Site Care, a WordPress maintenance business that takes the stress out of WordPress and turns technology into an asset instead of a barrier.
