A year ago I was writing how I’m finding my new role at ProteusThemes. It took me a year and some months to find it. Since we’ve reorganized the company in January – now we’re official cofounders with Jaka – the things are clicking into place.
For the last 2 months, I started going to bed and waking up at the same time (10.20 pm / 6.20 am), always having consistent 8 hours of sleep (+/- 10 minutes). If you met me at this time, most probably I have already told you this (because I tell everyone).
This has an enormous positive impact on my life and allows me to start days like this:
Today's morning: wake up early, take a dog for a walk, eat healthy breakfast, take rooftop car carrier to repair, take car to carwash, walk to the work (listening burnout episode of @poslusajtandem), and arrive to the office before anyone else (8.15 am).

What about you? What positive change in your life did you make recently that helped you?
Hey y’all, this tweet summarizes it tall:

In the summer heat of the last year, Rich Tabor has spiced up the atmosphere with his project Merlin WP – the onboarding wizard for themes or, as he puts it:
Merlin WP is my stab at addressing the tedious and exhausting WordPress theme setup and onboarding process. It makes installing a new WordPress theme, its recommended WordPress plugins, Customizer settings, widgets, and demo content, an exciting and gratifying user experience.

In business and especially at marketing – it’s not about you.
Surprisingly, it’s not about them either.
It’s about you for them! You for them.
You. For. Them.
It’s time for the year-in-review for ProteusThemes, so here we go:
In 2017, we’ve been doing fairly well. We’re still alive.
I know that in 2018 we’ll be doing even better.
That’s all that matters.
p.s. if you have specific questions, let me know in the comments!
On July 12, we’ve made a major tweak of our pricing strategy on ProteusThemes. This is a retrospective for the past 4 months to see what this change meant for ProteusThemes and how we’re doing today.
This (apparently) useful piece of advice has been initially posted in a closed Slovenian Growth Hacking FB group. However, I’ve received very positive feedback and they have encouraged me to spread the knowledge. Who am I to object?
I haven’t posted any updates about the FastSpring plugin for the WordPress (EDD) in the last 2 weeks. The reason is that we’ve been traveling to WordCamp Bucharest and our team has been busy launching a new theme. However, while Gregor has been rewriting the core functionality of the plugin to use the Virtual Products feature (previously syncing EDD products to FS), I’ve been in touch with the beta testers and the FastSpring team to ensure we’re launching a great FastSpring integration for WordPress.
