We need to create (basically from scratch) our Training manuals and SOPs for virtually every part of our business. What are you all using as software (prefer non-monthly fees) to build out these kinds of systems? We actually love the platform and usability of IMPACT+, especially for the training side of things. What is it built on? We do see doing a lot of video. And creating graphics, and maybe even some interactive VR (AR) type things. We'd also love a quiz functionality on the training side as well.

Dale Pease - We also use ClickUp, BUT not for SOPs and training....since we wanted tracking and signature level agreement, we chose to go with

It's AWESOME and geared toward SOPs, Training, etc than what you would have to build from scratch on ClickUp (which is totally possible)
I used this term a few months back with my management team, saying that 2021 was a year where we failed forward.

We made a lot of investments, took a lot of chances, placed some big bets. And a lot of them were wrong.

Had I not made that hire or two that didn't work out, I would have saved a lot of money.

Had I taken a little more time to critically think through an opportunity, I would have probably made a better decision.

Had I paid a little more attention to the right details, I would have noticed things sooner.

So yes, I failed. A lot, especially in 2021. It was not an easy year. We felt pain that we'll never allow ourselves to feel again and discovered roads we'll never go back down.

But every failure was failing forward.

Hello! Not sure if this is the right place to post this but here we go!

I've been at my current company for about 2.5 years. Since I've been there, WordPress updates and WP Plugin updates have never been prioritized. I've been trying to fight to get them updated as I know it is a security risk and I understand it could break our website if they get TOO out of date.

I'm now in a position to make recommendations on how to move forward. The agency we currently use for website updates is charging $160 an hour and estimates that our WordPress + Plugin updates will take around 10 hours at the least - so around $1,600 total.

Once we get to that point, with everything updated, can I go in and perform the updates every week or is that risky? We... See More

Hi  Lex Russell  - I know we do not know each other personally, but WordPress is how I make my are not necessarily stuck with them.  If you want to connect to share more details with me, maybe I can help guide you to a service that is far more economical and would (most likely) offer better results.

Martin Bredl  - we have a healthy white-label program...but it has been mainly focused on WordPress designs.  With that said, we are working with two Storybrand Certified guides building on Hubspot CMS for their clients and have started their projects.  Would be open to chatting with you about your needs.
