Quotes and Notes:

In another lifetime, Lisa Sabin-Wilson might have been a political journalist. Lucky for us, she became a WordPress expert and helped so many of us through her great talks at WordCamps, involvement with the WordPress community, and her seminal book WordPress for Dummies.

“Who doesn’t need a nurse who can code a WordPress theme?”

“The lessons in empathy I got from my years in nursing really helped me to become the person I am today and the leader I am today in my company”

On leading a company during the pandemic:

“The most important thing when you are leading a group of people is to try to put yourself in their position.”

“I have a pragmatic approach to leadership: if you really help your employees take care of the basics and remove as many stressors as you can from their life, then not only will they achieve great things with you, but they will be happy to do it, I think.”
