This episode is hosted by Mark Zahra of WP RSS Aggregator and EDD Bookings, who talks with Marius Vetrivi of WPRiders. Marius is an entrepreneur who has worked his way from being a solo freelancer to running his own WordPress agency that currently has 6 full-time employees.
The two discuss Marius’ background as well as that of his business, WPRiders, before going on to discuss various aspects of running a business. The discussion starts off with how to transition from being a freelancer to running an agency and what Marius learnt from it. The two then go on to discuss hiring; knowing when is the right time to expand and in what areas, how to find the right person for the job and for your team, and making sure the company’s culture is maintained throughout.
Marius also shares some details about what WPRiders does and how it does it, from complete site development to smaller projects with plugin and theme customisations, among others.
Lastly, Mark asks Marius what he does in his personal time to unwind and how he manages to cut off from the business side of his life, and he gives some valuable answers. Be sure to stick around until the end to hear Marius’ advice for those looking to get into freelancing as well as those looking to expand into an agency.
