EP34 – Freedom of Remote WordPress Work with Jon Brown – WPblab

Show Notes:

This week on WPblab, Bridget Willard & Jason Tucker speak with Jon Brown about his life as a nomad, being the remote boss and working with remote workers. We also get into travel, dealing with slow wifi, having redundant internet access when abroad and his collection of cellular phone sim cards.

Later in the show, we are joined by Russell Aaron and Made Better Studio to ask some questions live on the air.

    @YouTooCanBeGuru – Checked out using Give for a nonprofit client of mine… but it’s a bummer because we’re not able to use recurring donations out of the box like we are via PayPal for free 🙁 Soooo yea – but I’d love to give you some feedback on other premium addons that would be beneficial to nonprofits for sure!

  14. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:28 pm

    what show?

  15. Paul Oyler on June 30, 2016 at 12:28 pm

    sounds like a vacuum running when Jason is talking

  16. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 12:28 pm

    @PappyOyler It does. 🙂

  17. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 12:28 pm

    Hi cemal

  34. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 12:31 pm

    @MadeBetter Recurring is complicated and yes it does cost bot often increases donations by 40%.

  35. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 12:32 pm

    But recurring comes standard with PayPal Donations 😉

  36. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 12:32 pm

    @MadeBetter Nice 🙂 Maybe just stay with PayPal. :9

  37. Elena Rego on June 30, 2016 at 12:33 pm

  45. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 12:35 pm

    @YouTooCanBeGuru But I’d still like to bend your ear and give you some more ideas on other awesome nonprofitty type addons that would be super exciting to see… Do you guys have a feedback / addon suggestion submission form bits? 🙂

  46. Cemal Tashan on June 30, 2016 at 12:35 pm

    rain ? what is that

  47. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:35 pm

  51. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 12:36 pm

    @jb510 but they TOTALLY should have!

  52. Emanuel Costa on June 30, 2016 at 12:37 pm

    I think Jon’s beard is translating to Hawaiian in real time 🙂

  53. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 12:37 pm

    @MadeBetter Totally bend Matt Cromwell’s ear. He’s your guy. @learnwithmattc

    I would also accept “Golden Doodle” as a band name.

  63. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 12:42 pm

    hehehehe @RobertFGillmer

  64. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:42 pm

    “Living Room Love Sponge” – band name, called it!

  65. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:42 pm

    that’s the album name and the single

  66. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 12:43 pm

    lol

  67. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:43 pm

    @jb510 tells his clients to get on his timezone or the fee continues to rise

    #slack

  69. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 12:44 pm

    because if you’re on #slack.. then when are you actually getting your work done?? hehehe

  70. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:44 pm

    “Rework” goes into that mindset very well – https://37signals.com/rework

  71. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:44 pm

    @MadeBetter never because it’s all /giphy text messages

  72. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:46 pm

    @jb510 how do you upload 500mb on a $45 per 300mb connection?

  73. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:47 pm

    @jb510 how many commits do you get with a 300mb connection?

  74. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 12:47 pm

    Getting reliable wifi was the hardest part of working on the road for me… AFTER the fact that I get car sick trying to work in the car while being a passenger… 🙁

  75. Jonathan Perlman on June 30, 2016 at 12:47 pm

    Except canada? really? 20G. We’re in the dark ages in comparison.

  76. Priscilla Christian on June 30, 2016 at 12:47 pm

    450-500 mb

  77. Priscilla Christian on June 30, 2016 at 12:47 pm

    for a movie

  78. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:48 pm

    @MadeBetter – Every time we drive out to CA, I’m a passenger working in the passenger seat. I can empathize.

  79. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:48 pm

    some people have a stamp connection. john has data cards

  80. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:48 pm

    @jb510 has 5% of the worlds currency in his pocket

  82. Rachelle Wise on June 30, 2016 at 12:49 pm

  83. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 12:49 pm

    I took an AWESOME #phx to #portland HWY 1 roadtrip all up the West coast about two years ago now…

  84. Jason Tucker on June 30, 2016 at 12:49 pm

    sedentaryjason is my new website.

  85. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 12:50 pm

    lmao @jasontucker

  86. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:50 pm

    @MadeBetter – PHX 2014?

  87. Rachelle Wise on June 30, 2016 at 12:50 pm

    Yes!! Rockreation!

  88. Emanuel Costa on June 30, 2016 at 12:50 pm

    When I need to work on my laptop and pay per data on the go I change my user agent so I browse sites on mobile mode. It requests a lot less data.

  89. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:50 pm

    The Fed calls him before raising rates to make sure it’s okay.

  90. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:50 pm

    @emanweb – That’s a hell of an idea.

  91. Jason Tucker on June 30, 2016 at 12:50 pm

    if you have questions ask jon here /q and your question

  92. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:51 pm

    @jb510 knows where all the hotspots are around the world. that would be a fun blog post

  93. Rachelle Wise on June 30, 2016 at 12:51 pm

    CrossFit.

  94. Emanuel Costa on June 30, 2016 at 12:51 pm

    @RobertFGillmer this is very handy specially on the plane.

  95. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 12:52 pm

    @RobertFGillmer Took the roadtip in July 2013 right before I led WordCamp Phoenix #wcphx 2014 in Jan 🙂

  96. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 12:52 pm

    roadtrip*

  97. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:52 pm

    @jasontucker is the dog walker routine a thing yet? like p90x?

  98. Rachelle Wise on June 30, 2016 at 12:52 pm

    Forget to eat

  99. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:52 pm

    the dog walker workout

  100. Jason Tucker on June 30, 2016 at 12:52 pm

    @enqueue_russ totally

  101. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:52 pm

    PHX 2014 was off the chain, I’m excited you guys are back this year.

  102. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:53 pm

    Woot woot!

  103. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:53 pm

    praise to local environments

  104. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:53 pm

    Developing locally is the key. I built a site on a ship once.

  105. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 12:53 pm

    @RobertFGillmer rad

  106. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:54 pm

    VVV for the win

  107. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:54 pm

    @jasontucker it’s called subversion

  108. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:54 pm

    @enqueue_russ – You spelled DesktopServer wrong.

  109. Rachelle Wise on June 30, 2016 at 12:54 pm

    DesktopServer has my heart,

  110. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:55 pm

    @RobertFGillmer that’s because VVV is superior

  111. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:55 pm

    @WiseArts – High five!

  112. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:55 pm

    @enqueue_russ – We’ll discuss at the next Meetup, I do have questions about it.

  113. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:55 pm

    if you hot a snag, vardump(); Can we make this a t-shirt?

  114. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:55 pm

    if you hit a snag*

  115. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:56 pm

    I hot a snag once in college. A round of penicillin took care of it.

  119. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:56 pm

    Not task management per se, but still helpful

  120. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 12:56 pm

    Aww thanks @RobertFGillmer – means so much to me (and the rest of the #wcphx gang) to hear rave reviews still about #wcphx2014 even with the lull of not having a 2015 event! I am also personally super duper excited to see WordCamp come back to #Phx in 2016… I didn’t want to be the lead org who killed WordCamp for Phx hehehe

  121. Rachelle Wise on June 30, 2016 at 12:57 pm

    I’m on Basecamp. It’s kind of annoying.

  122. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 12:57 pm

    Trello?

  123. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:57 pm

    It’s good for a 10000 foot view of bizdev.

  124. Emanuel Costa on June 30, 2016 at 12:57 pm

    Install P2 theme 🙂

  125. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 12:57 pm

    ah yep

  126. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:58 pm

    Basecamp is the Hello Dolly of Task Managers

  129. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:58 pm

    Sifter is great for communicating with clients in a bug-fix capacity.

  130. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 12:59 pm

    Wooot!

  131. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 12:59 pm

    If you’re a Google Chrome user… and have tasks flying in from Asana, Trello, GMail etc… you may want to check out https://tacoapp.com It’s really helpful for me to keep track of all the cats…

  132. Rachelle Wise on June 30, 2016 at 12:59 pm

    ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  133. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 12:59 pm

    we have wds-beer

  140. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 1:01 pm

    And I win!

  141. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 1:01 pm

    That’s why Asana project status and inbox is way better than #slack to keep track of “where the projects” are actually at

  142. Jason Tucker on June 30, 2016 at 1:02 pm

    @enqueue_russ of course you do

  143. Emanuel Costa on June 30, 2016 at 1:02 pm

    This one seem interesting but I have not tested in a large project. https://getplan.co

    This is like being in a house built by a child using nothing but a hatchet and a picture of a house.

  151. Robert Gillmer on June 30, 2016 at 1:04 pm

    Gotta bounce, I didn’t realize this was 90 minutes. Have fun everyone!

    @enqueue_russ 🙂

  157. Rachelle Wise on June 30, 2016 at 1:06 pm

    Played that game from Japan once. It’s so hard to be on the opposite side of the world from clients. :/

  158. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 1:06 pm

    @jb510 that’s the creed for every dev out there

  159. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 1:06 pm

  160. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 1:06 pm

    @vegasgeek for the win

  161. Adam Thomson on June 30, 2016 at 1:07 pm

    HAHA that was the worst

  162. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 1:08 pm

    @jb510 maybe you should change it up every day just to help them out with their Jon timezone anxiety

  163. Rachelle Wise on June 30, 2016 at 1:09 pm

    RESULTS vs Time

  164. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 1:09 pm

    I think the static is JT

  165. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 1:10 pm

    Being in Arizona where we don’t actually observe daylight savings and working with the rest of the distributed team that’s mainly based in the East Coast, is hard enough for me… since we always have to deal with the change of 2 hrs or 3 hrs depending on the time of year…

  166. Rachelle Wise on June 30, 2016 at 1:10 pm

    Ohh! @MadeBetter that’s crazy!

  167. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 1:12 pm

    heheh We have enough daylight here we don’t need to save any 😉

  168. Rachelle Wise on June 30, 2016 at 1:12 pm

    I always forget AZ doesn’t do that

  169. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 1:12 pm

    @buffer does regular group retreats in exotic locations… sooo that definitely helps with the culture building in a larger scale…

  170. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 1:12 pm

    @MadeBetter yep

  171. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 1:13 pm

    EWW

  172. Jason Tucker on June 30, 2016 at 1:13 pm

    @emanweb we’ll answer this next

  177. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 1:16 pm

    @enqueue_russ aww

  178. Emanuel Costa on June 30, 2016 at 1:17 pm

    The only thing I miss about working in an office is happy hour 😀

  179. Jason Tucker on June 30, 2016 at 1:17 pm

  180. Emanuel Costa on June 30, 2016 at 1:17 pm

  222. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 1:30 pm

    I know Russ does.

  223. Jason Tucker on June 30, 2016 at 1:30 pm

    Russ is too easy, anyone else? 🙂

  224. Emanuel Costa on June 30, 2016 at 1:30 pm

    I don’t know if they fixed but Trello had a major issue. If someone deletes a board it’s gone for good.

  225. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 1:31 pm

    #jobopp just made

  226. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 1:32 pm

  227. Jason Tucker on June 30, 2016 at 1:32 pm

    @enqueue_russ hop on russ 🙂

  230. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 1:33 pm

  232. Jason Tucker on June 30, 2016 at 1:33 pm

    🙂

  233. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 1:33 pm

    Sorry that was my burning quesiton.

  234. Rachelle Wise on June 30, 2016 at 1:38 pm

    Need to set boundaries and expectations upfront.

  235. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 1:39 pm

    @AdamThomson Good Q!

  236. Adam Thomson on June 30, 2016 at 1:39 pm

    I was late to the party so y’all may have talked about it already, but what are people’s favourite website(s) for remote WordPress work contracts? I get a lot of work via work of mouth, and have more than I can deal with as it is, but I have to wonder if I’m missing out on something awesome…

  237. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 1:40 pm

    I’d love to hop on and ask a Q if @enqueue_russ is willing to share the limelight..

  238. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 1:40 pm

    @MadeBetter 🙂

  239. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 1:41 pm

    Great questions Russ!

  240. Adam Thomson on June 30, 2016 at 1:41 pm

    ALSO what are the things you always take with you? Like I always have my visual diary, tablet, external hdd, copy of my contract, camera, usb cables, and a couple of nice pens.

  241. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 1:43 pm

    @enqueue_russ Oh good idea.

  242. Jason Tucker on June 30, 2016 at 1:43 pm

    Any good whiteboard solutions?

  243. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 1:44 pm

    @jasontucker 90% of our meetings are based on a Google Doc / Slide with each other and clients. 🙂

  244. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 1:44 pm

    yes

  245. Adam Thomson on June 30, 2016 at 1:44 pm

    I feel like I just leveled up.

  246. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 1:45 pm

    10 points

  247. Adam Thomson on June 30, 2016 at 1:48 pm

    Damn it I blew it.

  248. Jason Tucker on June 30, 2016 at 1:48 pm

    @AdamThomson its fine

  249. Adam Thomson on June 30, 2016 at 1:48 pm

    q/ Do you use Freelancer type websites for finding remote WP work? I’ve never bothered because I have enough as it is, but I have to wonder if I’m missing out, and if you do then which ones? I feel you just become a voice in the crowd, and there’s no real relationship which I value.

  250. Jason Tucker on June 30, 2016 at 1:49 pm

    @jb510 see above

  251. Adam Thomson on June 30, 2016 at 1:49 pm

    Haha SNAP

  252. Rachelle Wise on June 30, 2016 at 1:50 pm

    AMEN @MadeBetter !!!

  253. Adam Thomson on June 30, 2016 at 1:52 pm

    @jb510 Thank you. You have affirmed my suspicions about such sites. Ie. more work than they’re worth.

  254. Russell Aaron on June 30, 2016 at 1:52 pm

    @MadeBetter you ask super specific questions where they can only answer in few words. asking general questions is how you lose the convo

  255. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 1:52 pm

    @AdamThomson You did a good job.

  256. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 1:54 pm

    WordCamp.tv!

  257. Adam Thomson on June 30, 2016 at 1:54 pm

    Oh man I wish…

    WCOC!!!

  259. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 1:55 pm

    @enqueue_russ thanks btw for sharing 🙂 and for the great tip about the specific questions… the hard part in my situation is that she’s usually the one asking the questions, and it’s all “lost in her email” or “in some document” that she doesn’t have up

  260. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 1:56 pm

    That’s what my boss does. It reallly helps keep us focusd.

  261. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 1:56 pm

    @MadeBetter If she’s your employee, I’d suggest that you start it in GDoc, share on the conversation. “The purpose of this call is to 1, 2 , 3 …”

  262. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 1:56 pm

    It’s also in who you know and just reaching out and saying “hey if you ever need someone who does what I do… here’s some of my work, I love what you do and would love to work with you”

  263. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 1:57 pm

    @YouTooCanBeGuru technically we’re collaborators, she has hired me for SEO/SEM expertise, so she really brings the questions and I bring the answers

  264. Bridget Willard on June 30, 2016 at 1:57 pm

    @MadeBetter uggggggggg sorry

  265. Adam Thomson on June 30, 2016 at 1:57 pm

  294. Jon Brown on June 30, 2016 at 2:05 pm

    Thanks all. Sorry I didn’t pay better attention to the comment stream… so many things!

  295. Paul Oyler on June 30, 2016 at 2:05 pm

    @jasontucker if I wanted to ask you a WordCamp question, how is best to contact you?

  296. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 2:06 pm

    you have to compete for airtime on watercooler

  297. Adam Thomson on June 30, 2016 at 2:06 pm

    I thought of a relevant pet peeve. When your client says they have good internet, and they don’t.

  298. Jason Tucker on June 30, 2016 at 2:06 pm
  299. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 2:06 pm

    I hear Thailand is one of the most friendliest places…

  325. Made Better Studio on June 30, 2016 at 2:18 pm

    maybe a #travel-hacks-forever co-working location dropzones around the world?

  326. Adam Thomson on June 30, 2016 at 2:21 pm

    Cheapest flight I could find is $515 USD to go from Wellington, NZ to Denpasar, Bali, and that’s with 5 stopovers. State of it.

  327. Adam Thomson on June 30, 2016 at 2:21 pm

    Bye y’all
