#55 – Starting a Web Design Business and Using Themes for Client Websites

If someone comes to me and says they want to own their own business someday, but they have no skills and they have no idea what to do, the first thing I ask them is, “Do you enjoy being on a computer for long periods of time?”

If they say no, I think they should be trying as many new things as possible to see what sticks and what they enjoy doing. Almost anything can be monetized at some point. But if they say yes, and they also say they are pretty tech-savvy, I instantly tell them they should learn web design.

Once they start going down the web design path, they are going to have a million questions. And one that comes up often is: is it cheating for a web designer to be using themes/templates on client sites, or even on their own website?

It really comes down to who you ask, what their background is, and what type of business they are trying to run. My short answer is: you should definitely be starting every website with a premium theme.

Hit play on this episode to learn more about why I feel strongly about this, and how this could skyrocket the amount of clients you get, as well as increase the amount of money you make.

Over the years, I’ve learned a thing or two when it comes to web design and running a business based around it. If you have any interest in this space, definitely listen to this one, it might open up your mind to new possibilities.
