WordCamp Video Highlight 2017/08/11

“This wouldn’t be a bad job if I didn’t have to deal with CLIENTS!”

Although my work with WordPress is limited to my work and personal websites, I do hear people talking about client work at WordCamps. Terms that are tossed around like “make it pop”, “feel free to be creative”, “I’ll fax you some ideas that I have” and many other statements can give designers and developers nightmares.

I picked two videos that talk about working with clients and steps that can be taken to ease the pain.

Nathan Ingram: Dealing With Problem Clients

Spend time talking with a group of freelancers and the conversation will inevitably include someone’s unfortunate experience with a terrible client. Most freelancers have a story or two (or eight). While bad clients can’t be completely avoided, there are strategic steps any freelancer can take to contain the impact of a bad client. In this session, Nathan will explain the how to create a system that preserves workflow and keeps problem clients in check.

WordPress Community Interview With Anil Gupta

First, I would like to thanks Nirmal Desai who introduced me to Anil and helped arrange this interview. Nirmal is one of the WordPress TV Team members

Anil Gupta is a developer and resides in Ahmedabad, India. Anil and Aslam Multani started a company called Multidots in a rented apartment, two old computers, bad internet service and turned it into a company that now employs over 100 people worldwide and delivers professional web and mobile solutions.

Anil has a great philosophy towards the company, clients and crew (employees). You can read about the company and their relationship ideas in a Linkedin post that Anil posted HERE.

At Multidots we have this engine which shows how these three “C” (Company, Clients and Crew) are connected and responsible. There are three entity in the business – Company, Clients, Crew (Employee)! We really need to align them well. It would not only help company to grow and get better success but would help client and employee to achieve their goals and satisfaction.


Anil and his partner encourage employees to become involved in WordPress and to give back to the community. Chetan is one of the  team members that contributed for the recent release of WordPress 4.7, Chirag Patel is a Polyglots Team Editor and took part in the Global WordPress Translation Day 2 and as I had mentioned before, Nirmal Desai is an active member of the WordPress TV Team.
