When I first tried Squarespace, it was love at first sight...
During my 7 years of running an online business, I experimented with a few different drag and drop type website builders. They were usually easy to learn, but it didn’t take long before I felt limited by what I could do with them. At one point, I wanted more options, so I switched to WordPress.
There was a huge learning curve involved in mastering WordPress, but I was determined. I studied it relentlessly so I could use it comfortably and be able to update my website as often as needed.
Until finally, I just couldn't take it anymore. I started to realize that being on WordPress was way too frustrating. First of all, it was very difficult to learn in the first place. And even after I learned a ton, there was still the issue of speed and difficulty of maintenance. My website was ridiculously slow no matter what I did to try to speed it up. Anytime I needed to make a simple update, it would take me forever to get it done because either it was difficult or took way too long to finalize. Did I mention your website can easily get hacked on WordPress if you don't constantly update those millions of plugins? Yup, scary + annoying!
I came to a point where I said, there has got to be a better way! And that's when a lovely friend of mine said, "I love Squarespace, why don't you try it?" I was desperate, so I said, "I will!"
And just like that, my first love for a website building platform began. I fell in love head over heels with Squarespace. I mean, who wouldn't love an easy, uncomplicated, co-operative, flexible, secure and beautiful tool like this? Plus, I was wonderfully surprised to find out that it was a lot more customizable that I had expected! (And no, they don't pay me to say that!)
I enjoyed the process of using Squarespace so much that I decided to make it my designated platform for creating websites for all my clients. Why shouldn't eveyone's life be easier, right?
Nowadays, I get to work with amazing business owners and make their lives easier!
I’m so lucky to have found my passion and get the opportunity to work with entrepreneurs who are making waves. Namely coaches, consultants, mentors, authors, photographers, artists and creators of all kinds, who value their time and freedom to do what they love.
