E19: Joe Howard, WP Buffs

Noah Labhart @nlabhart

Joe Howard is originally from Washington DC. He did his undergrad outside of Philly, then quickly moved back to the DC area. He’s married, with a young family and most of his outside of work time is dedicated to family, and traveling to interesting places (when the pandemic allows). Likes to try and keep himself disciplined with his day to day calendar – through exercise, reading, team growth, and family focus. And he uses a pomodoro journal – on and off – to help him keep organized in blocking his time. Host of the WPMRR podcast, on which he focuses on increasing monthly recurring revenue, and for sure, mentions the latest in WordPress world. I’d recommend checking it out.

Joe started out as a WordPress freelancer, but found it was hard to scale building websites. However, what he knew was the fact that there are a lot of WordPress sites out there… and they need grade A support. This is the creation story of WP Buffs.
