Create an Awesome Website
Online WordPress Training Course
For Awesome Women Entrepreneurs
Did I say awesome? You bet I did, and I’m talking to you!
You are creating so many wonderful things and helping so many people. It is your responsibility to get out from behind that unprofessional website (or no website at all) and shine bright. We need you more than you can imagine!
I get so excited thinking about you having the ability to design your businesses and life.
Creating an online business will help you do just that and your website is your store front.
It will need to look good.
You are going to spend a lot of time perfecting, changing and growing your website.
You will need to know how to use it.
You don’t have time to try out 5 options just to find none of them work.
Know you are doing it right the first time.
That’s where this course comes in. It includes simple + easy-to-follow courses and an expert WordPress developer (that’s me!) showing you the ropes.
Praise from rockstar women entrepreneurs…
Lindsay’s course and the one on one follow up session proved invaluable to me. I love the design aspect of creating web sites and felt very confident in this arena but there were gaps in my knowledge about the systems to put in place, and child theme ccustomizations I needed to do. Lindsay helped me navigate this territory, she is super skilled and she really knows her stuff. She is also putting her big heart and sincere presence into the course and is always looking for ways to add more value to it. As a participant in it over the last year I have witnessed the list of trainings within the course keep growing, it’s comprehensive and ever evolving and bound to cover all your website creation needs. I trust and value all that Lindsay puts out into the world as I know it comes from a genuine desire to assist.Zoe Watson
Honestly, that I felt you cared more about Mayi than the business. It makes me feel like my websites are taken care of by someone who truly understands + gets how much this means to me.
Also, peace of mind. Knowing I’m in great hands. Someone who’s not only a professional, but whom I feel really cares, like a close friend would. That for me is worth GOLD.Mayi Carles
My website was incomplete after working with my first designer, and I wasn’t happy with the quality of the work. Since you have finished it and added the pieces I needed, I now have a beautiful website that supports my business.Melissa Hoffmann
Your work is great and I was thrilled to find you (and even more so to know you live nearby and are a fellow WAHM!).Erin Haslag

Learn at your own pace.
So you can jump right in and learn what you need to learn now or you can take your time (you’ve got lifetime access!).

Lesson 1 : Websites 101
In this lesson you will learn the basics of websites. I’m talking basic, as if you were unfrozen caveman lawyer (Google it). We will go over domains + hosting and get introduced to WordPress, themes, and tons of resources to get you going.
Lesson 2 : Plan Your Website
One thing I learned in school was that the more time you spend planning, the less time the project takes to execute. So in this lesson we will take an in-depth look at you, your business, your audience and your website goals. From there we will create a clear plan detailing how you will get there.
Comes with a bonus Website Planning Guide fillable PDF.
Lesson 3 : Intro to WordPress
WordPress is where the magic happens and where we will be spending all of our time. So I will make sure you are well equipped for the journey with tons of how-to videos detailing every section of the admin section. You will also learn how to install WordPress and set up the development environment so everything will be good to go as we move forward and finish building your site.
This also includes a bonus lesson on how to create a coming soon landing page that is visible to people who come to your site, allowing you to collect email + let them know when the full site will be up.
Lesson 4 : Apply Branding
Branding is what sets your site apart from everyone else. It is your visual voice, your online signature. You will learn how to incorporate your current branding to your new site. For those of you without branding you will learn how to quickly make a logo online for free + choose a great color scheme that speaks to you to get you started.
Don’t worry, if you’re ready to go pro and get professional branding, I’ve got some friends (aka the best WordPress designers in the world) who would be more than happy to help you out 🙂
Lesson 5 : Page Creation
In this lesson you will learn which pages you need to get started. You will also learn the type of content you will need to include on each page, keeping SEO (search engine optimization aka Google) in mind.
Includes bonus page layouts + templates to simplify things even more!
Lesson 6 : WordPress Blogging
We start this lesson learning about the technical aspects of how to blog using WordPress. After you’ve got that down you will get a crash course in blogging including frequency, types of blogs, content, scheduling, planning, and more.
Lesson 7 : Plugins
You will learn which plugins you need on your site to set it up for success. You will also learn how to install, configure and troubleshoot plugins. Don’t know what a plugin is? Don’t worry, we’ll go over that, too!
Lesson 8 : Maintenance
After your website is complete and up and running you will notice that things change fast and your website, themes, plugins, etc. will need to be updated frequently. You will also need to make changes on your site as your business grows and your goals change.
In this lesson we will review how to safely update your website, how to make changes to your content and how to schedule database + full site backups so you never lose a thing.
Lesson 9 : Launch Time
3, 2, 1 … we have liftoff!
Time to launch your site + share it with the world! In this lesson you will learn how to make your site live, how to disable your coming soon page and we may even have a dance party in your honor. You will learn awesome tips + tricks on how to make sure you launch your site with applause (and not crickets).
Time to start makin’ that money, honey!
Having Lindsay present for my business allows me to fall asleep easier at night. As a designer, I had been working with developers for years and I never felt 100% comfortable sending my designs off because I often felt like the details that I paid attention to, that made my designs, weren’t paid attention to. I trust Lindsay fully with all of my development needs because of her professionalism, her technical skills, her understanding of the health and wellness space, and her experience with design. Lindsay is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her to anyone needing to get their website up and running.Alison Leipzig
I think that I have a renewed sense of “keeping it simple”. Being online doesn’t have to scary. And it doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s about having a few right pieces in place and fousing on that.Nikki Brocco
SOOOOOOO MUCH POSITIVE FEEDBACK!!!
I have gotten so many compliments on my site. My email list grew tremendously and I started to have lots more clients and people who expressed interest!
I look and feel professional and people take me and my business more serious!!! I LOVE handing out my business card now because I am sending people to a place that shows them me in a way that I want to be represented!Caroline Zwick
When you’re in, you’re in! This is great for many reasons, number one you save money. If the price goes up in the future, you don’t have to worry. Also, if you don’t quite get through all the course work or forget how to do something you can always go back and review the lesson material.
When technology changes (which is always is!) and updates are made you will be first in line to know.
I’ve called in the best of the best to hang out with us! We are going to get schooled in everything from web design, body confidence, business management, copy writing, branding + being an online business owner. They will be live + recorded so you can watch later if you can’t make it for the live call. Includes time for question and answer 🙂
You will receive support through our online community. It is a private Facebook group for members only! You will be encouraged to ask questions and provide answers. I (as well as members of my team) will also be stopping in once a week to answer as many questions as I can and provide an expert solution to your issue.
See what is in my website + business toolbox! I will give you a sneak peek behind the scenes into what I use to run my online business with low overhead.

Designer Short List

Enrollment is now open!
I love my new site! its easily accessible and great on the eye. My old site was not put together as well and the new site is very creative and current. I loved the process from beginning to the end.Karry Parran
Finding Lindsay was really the answer I was looking for. I searched for several solutions to my web needs before finding Lindsay. She simplifies learning WordPress and is patient while you figure it out. You can tell she is genuine and wants the best for her clients. She is awesome!Lina Shatara
No more excuses!
Still not confident you can do this?
Then take a second to read why those thoughts are crazy!
You might be thinking…
I’m not good with technology
If you have managed to navigate to this web page to read about this program, then you’ve got what it takes. This program comes with a lifetime subscription to our private Facebook group where you will receive support like you wouldn’t believe.
I already have a website
If you can’t honestly say (with a straight face) that you are in love with your website and tell everyone about it (even the lady checking out your groceries) AND know how to use, update and maintain it with no kinks, then you are good to go with what you have. If you can’t, this course is for you.
I don’t have time
There are quick start guides to get you up and running fast. Also, each lesson is short and sweet, loaded with helpful information so you get the most amount of knowledge in the least amount of time.
Also, you get lifetime access! The content never goes away and will be updated when anything changes or new featuers become available.
So you get your website up and running fast and have the ability to take your time perfecting it.
I don’t have any clients/I still have a full time job
This won’t change if you don’t let the world know you exist. A website is a perfect way to do just that. An awesome one will show them you mean business.
I don’t know what to put on a website
We’ve got that covered in Lesson 2.
I think I can figure this out on my own
But you haven’t yet, have you? Let’s not waste any more of your precious time Google-ing something 14 times and ending up at a shady website hoping that you find the answers you are looking for.
I am saving for a fully customized WordPress site
You are going to need to know how to use it, and this program will teach you that. Also, the theme you receive as a bonus is the theme I use as a base for a majority of my fully custom sites. So if you go through the program, learn to use WordPress, create your website structure on the theme provided, you will be ahead of the game. It will save you time and money when working with a designer and developer since they can build off what you have created.

I was super excited to work with Lindsay. I have heard repeatedly that she is a great at building websites.
I love learning about all the possible functions of a website.
She is a great, understanding teacher that is very willing to share her magical powers 🙂
Lindsay has helped increase my knowledge in websites and design….and introducing me to (or getting me addicted to…lol) several amazing groups of women entrepreneurs. Also she has increased my excitement of my own freelance career.
She is a very reliable and professional. I would recommend her to any entrepreneur who has a voice or service online.Katherine Barnes
I can officially report I have increased confidence in myself and my business since working with Lindsay. She cares about me as a person and my success…the two really go hand-in-hand.
By connecting with Lindsay I’ve grown my circles. She’s always introducing me to new products and services by promoting the businesses and women she’s working with or admiring. I follow and share with her on social media. It’s great to have a like-minded mamma I can bounce ideas off of or share information with.
I highly recommend Lindsay to fellow designers looking for a programmer/developer who speaks “designer” fluently (she used to specialize in it) and gets the work done right the first time.Marie Newell
100% Guaranteed : I am here to help you succeed.
So what happens if you don’t like the program?
You get your money back. Period.
I know how valuable your money is when you are just starting out a business, have a family to feed and bills to pay.
I try to be very clear from the beginning what exactly is covered in the course and what you will receive in the end.
If you have any questions regarding the course, don’t hesitate to contact me. Once you are in the program, take a look around.
If you don’t like it you have 15 days to let me know.
However, before I give you your money back I will ask that you speak with me on the phone to try to resolve what it is you aren’t happy with.
Because more than anyone I want this to work for you.
I want to do what is right to make your experience an awesome one.
And other people may be having the same issue you are and I may just need to add another section to the program or change something up a bit.
Or, it may just not be a good fit for you. And in that case, you will get 100% of your money back within 30 days.
So read through everything and ask me any questions you may have before diving in. We are going to have a good time creating awesome websites and supporting each other.
About Lindsay McGuire (that’s me!)
I’m Lindsay. I am mom to two awesomely crazy little ones. I build websites that ROCK for awesome women entrepreneurs. I also offer online courses for the DIY’ers of women business owners. I teach WordPress a local non-profit. I blog about my journey.
I do it because your website shouldn’t be a pain (it should be something you love and show off to everyone). I do it to help other women experience the freedom to build a life that works for you + your family.
My favorite color is purple. I am a recovering caffeine addict (working on my sugar addiction). I shamelessly love Taylor Swift. My favorite TV show is a tie between Star Trek TNG and The Office. I know A LOT about Mario + Luigi (still not for sure about that Princess Peach).
Want to know more about me? I’m flattered. Here’s the scoop…
I started out my career as a print designer and quickly morphed into a web designer. Shortly after that I evolved into a WordPress developer. Then I had a short stint as a designer and front-end developer for a custom software development company.
Then something miraculous happened that completely shifted the way I viewed the world. I had a baby. Not just any baby…I gave birth to the love (and biggest challenge) of my life. His name is Daegon and he is freakin’ awesome.
This transition into motherhood made me realize there is more to life than a 9-5 (or 7-6). I realized that in order to be successful I had to make a change. I’m not (just) talking money. I’m talking about having the time and energy to take care of my family and my self. I’m talking about working with clients that I truly enjoy hanging out with and have businesses that are making an impact in our world. I’m talking about consciously living my life and deciding what my energy is best spent on.
My husband and I now have 2 little ones, Daegon and Maeve. I work with awesome clients (check out the portfolio). I have expanded my reach by teaching, both online and in the classroom.
IT. IS. AWESOME. Not perfect, but awesome.
This is what I want for you: a life where you play by your own rules. I want to help you build your online business through a rockin’ website. We will utilize tools that are easy to use on a platform that let’s you have full control over your website. Then I will teach you how to maintain it. The end goals are to make you money, save you time, help you shape the life that you want to live. Sweetness.
