Successful entrepreneurs do it and we want you to do it too. True success and fulfilment, is all about balance - mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. These episodes give you insights into creating more of the 'good stuff' in your day to day life.
Have you ever thought about how much more productive you’d be or how much money you could make if only you kept your hands off of your phone or your mind from wondering what’s happening on Facebook? In this episode of the WP Elevation podcast, Nir Eyal talks about the research he’s done on the psychology of habit-forming products, what he’s learned about overcoming distractions and the books he’s written to capture both of these ideas.
As you strive to elevate your business, do you ever feel like you’re fighting an uphill battle that you can’t possibly win? Or worry that you’re just not cut out for entrepreneurship? It’s not uncommon to be apprehensive and maybe even a little sceptical of what the future holds. But, as Samantha Hearne explains in this episode of the podcast, you can’t afford to allow fear to keep you from taking action. Listen now to find out what she says about entrepreneurial anxiety and impostor syndrome.
We all struggle with finding high-paying, good quality clients. Tune in as our experts explain what works for them - landing better clients and keeping them.
Kim Barrett is the founder of Your Social Voice, a social media lead generation agency and a best-selling author and speaker. But that’s not really what he came to the WP Elevation podcast to talk about. Instead, he and Troy touch upon his entrepreneurial beginnings as well as how he’s found lasting business success working in the Facebook advertising space.
If you attended WP Elevation’s live event in Santa Monica earlier this year, you’ll recognise Dana Malstaff as one of the guest speakers.

Tune into this episode of the WP Elevation podcast to get a major dose of hiring and team management inspiration.
As Pagely moves into a new era with serverless application hosting, CEO and co-founder Joshua Strebel takes a trip down memory lane in this episode of the WP Elevation podcast. He and Troy talk about managed hosting, chasing the top of the stack, using revenge as fuel as well as Joshua’s predictions for the future of WordPress.
Do your business processes need a little TLC? Let these experts shed some light on the best methods, tools and practices to help your business run more efficiently.
If you’ve been on the fence about WP Elevation, there’s no better way to get off it than by hearing a first-hand account of what it’s like. In this episode of the WP Elevation podcast, Noah Britton talks about his business before and after WP Elevation, and how better processes and a change in mindset helped him cut his client list in half while tripling his revenue. This is his success story.
In this episode of the WP Elevation podcast, Troy is joined by Christie Chirinos, the product manager of managed WooCommerce hosting at Liquid Web. There’s more to this episode than just talk of managed hosting though. Tune in if you want to learn more about what product managers do as well as to learn how Christie uses the Eisenhower time management matrix to decide which fires to put out each day.

Serial entrepreneur and full-stack product designer/developer Brian Casel visited the WP Elevation podcast to talk about the value of selling productised services.

All of which he discusses on this jam-packed episode of the podcast.
WP Elevation alumnus Suraj Sodha tells the story of how he found great value (and profitability) in recurring revenue business models. But he didn’t stop at selling WordPress maintenance plans to clients.
