How to Build a Website

Owning your online, professional presence is invaluable in proving your value to the market.

A great first step is to build a website.

It can be pretty simple. Micaela Richmond breaks it down in her post, How to Begin Building a Website.

“At the start of this year, I had never built a website. Now, I have built six, and have done 10+ complete remodels of my personal website. Throughout this process, I’ve learned a lot, and want to share.”
