6 things I’ve learnt

The beauty of Flexible working

Flexible working was a new experience for me, I’m not restricted to working in an office 9-5pm. Don’t be surprised if you receive a reply to your tech question at 11pm on a Saturday night 😉

Never delete unknown files

Something I’ve been guilty of more often than not. Everything exists for a reason.

Always stay ahead of the game

Technology changes rapidly, it pays off to keep upto date with the news and have a plan.

Automatic Backups save jobs

When all else fails, remember your hosting provider automatically backs up your site on a regular basis.

Team Collaboration

Invite team member to share their ideas and suggestions. It might make your life easier in the long run.

Research, Plan, Execute

Exactly in that order 🙂
