Meet your new

web design mentors

Hey, we’re Emma and Haley!

We’re web designers, WordPress fangirls & design geeks on a mission to help female web designers build their dream WP design business!

We’ve been IRL BFFs since high school (way back when Emma had a crush on Haley’s now-husband 🙈 #awkawrd – not really) and biz besties since 2014.

It’s a forever thing for us. We’ve cheered each other through thick and thin across crushes, continents and careers.

In 2001, we held each other’s hair back as we experienced (way too much) alcohol for the first time.

In 2012, when Haley was teaching herself how to become a designer, Emma was there to mentor, encourage, inspire and unf*ck the entire process for her.

And in 2018, when Emma wondered aloud if she could really get paid for doing something that felt so easy and rewarding, Haley lovingly nodded her and said, “DUDE, YOU SO CAN – the world needs you to become a WordPress design sensei!”

Today, you can find us living the cafe life (Haley), taking our sausages to the beach (Emma – if you’re intrigued, check out my Insta 😉) and high-fiving each other as we help our Mavens become the masters of their destinies and web design businesses.

And, you, you talented designer that we already adore, you can TOTALLY sit with us! Seriously, make yourself at home.

Because we get it. We’re designers just like you. We get goosebumps over a gorgeous font combo, cringe over a premature popup, and can get physically ill over an ugly colour palette. But, more than that, we’ve been where you are, have made a LOT of mistakes and had to learn things the hard way.

But we did learn them.

And now, we’re living our dream web design businesses.

Lifestyle over Hustle

Haley works 10 – 15 hours a week on client work – and takes lots of holidays each year – and still makes more than she ever did in her soul-sucking full-time corporate career.

Takin' Home the Bacon

Emma is the official carb-creating breadwinner of her family and only works on a handful of select projects each year for clients she adores (and still enjoys more creativity, days off and dosh than ever!)

But what if you could achieve all of that

and YOUR unique version of success

without swearing your way through a symphony of stressful stuff-ups?

‘Cause we believe that the secrets to success are meant to be shared not squirreled away. Which is why we’re devoted to being by your side to make the journey to building your dream web design biz fun, easy and simple (like, it’ll actually be us, not a team of cute yellow minions or e-bots, btw).

We support you to succeed at what matters to you.

Curious how WP Mavens was born?

We aren’t ones to brag (okay, Emma isn’t one to brag; Haley thinks being humble is a weakness *laughing emoji*), but when it comes to WP Mavens, we’re unapologetically proud of the community we’re creating, ‘cause we know it will support our members to:

Feel financially independent and support their families by increasing their prices and earning hundreds (if not thousands!) more each month.

Land their DREAM clients and work exclusively on projects that they happy clap over.

See their creative visions come to life with real WordPress websites they’ve confidently built themselves.

Collect compliments and revel in the praise of gushing clients that think they’re legit tech and creative geniuses.

Stop feeling like frauds and develop unwavering confidence in their awesome WordPress skills and businesses.

Have the ovaries to quote on and go for bigger, bolder and higher-paying projects (fuck yeah!!)

Get waaaay more done each day, week and month (yep, spare time and free weekends will actually be a thing again!)

Protect their businesses from painful clients and ensure they never work with people that don’t make them feel good.

Find their people and swap loneliness for connection with a community that truly cares about them.

Feel confident in their skills and know when they can say to a client, “Yeah nah, I don’t troubleshoot emails/set up your Instagram/edit Wix websites/walk your dog” (but in a polite & profesh way of course 😉).

Take full advantage of the opportunities of web design to collect cash from recurring (and sometimes passive) revenue.
