Hey all! Thanks for checking out the new site.
As you may or may not have noticed, I decided to rebrand Can't Wait Till Monday over to NewPulse Labs.
Don't get me wrong, I still love the Can't Wait Till Monday name, and use it as a motto in my personal life.
It also got a lot of positive feedback from people who happened to come across it.
But the name no longer aligned well with where my content is heading.
Choosing a new direction
My original intent for CWTM was to help people build businesses. You know, ✨ escape the 9-to-5 and live life on their own terms ✨.
But as that market became saturated, it became no longer interesting to me.
It was also tarnished by all the bad actors out there who are only interested in preying on the vulnerable - making large promises and stealing their money.
Later I pivoted to making CWTM about helping businesses grow by using the latest tech to create an amazing customer journey.
This was much more aligned with where my interests were at, but eventually I noticed a trend:
Business owners weren't consuming my content. Web designers/developers were.
In hindsight, this makes complete sense.
Most successful businesses have a "tech guy" or girl to take care of all their tech stuff. So I knew my targeting was off.
At that point, the direction was obvious.
I was going to publish web design content for web designers.
Content created for people exactly like myself.
The Can't Wait Till Monday name held me back a little bit though. My content was no longer related to the essence of the name.
So I knew I needed to rebrand.
I already own an agency called NewPulse Studios, where I work with amazing clients to build beautiful, blazing-fast websites that convert.
I thought it'd be cool to create a sister brand called NewPulse Labs.
The "lab" is where all the magic happens behind the scenes. Where I work on my core skillset, experiment with new workflows, try new tools, and develop my processes.
That brings us to today...
Welcome to NewPulse Labs
My mission with NewPulse Labs is to help you become a high-value web designer.
As I'm sure you've noticed, there's no shortage of people who do what we do.
It's easier for any regular person to make a website now than it was ever before.
At the same time, most businesses need more from their website more now than ever before.
Simply having a 'web presence' isn't an effective online strategy for them anymore.
That is where you have the opportunity as a web designer to stand out.
You're no longer a just the guy/gal who's building their website. You're an integral part of their online success.
The more you can help businesses generate more revenue or leads - or whatever their goal is - the more they'll be happy to pay you.
I want to help you build beautiful, fast websites that convert.
This includes sharing everything I've learned in the past 15+ years, but also keeping you in the loop with everything that's going on in the industry, and sharing tools that can help improve your workflow.
If you haven't already, I'd also suggest joining our Facebook group. It's where all the discussion will be taking place in real-time.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you better!
