Should I Have a Separate Email for Personal and Business?
Yes. It makes it easier for you to separate these two parts of your life. Although you need two separate accounts, you can manage both in one. For example, You have a personal email account and a business email account but they both are forwarded to one single Gmail (or similar) account.

What is the Difference Between WordPress.com and WordPress.org?
WordPress is a software. This software is the same on .com and .org. The difference between the two is where you host (or house) your website. When you use WordPress.com you are using their host (house). When you use WordPress.org, you are using your own host (house) which you pay for via a hosting company like MomWebs or WPEngine.
What is an Autoresponder?
An autoresponder is an email marketing tool. Auto – automatically send emails to a group on your list. Companies like Aweber, MailChimp, MadMimi, GetResponse, InfusionSoft, etc. are all capable of sending timely marketing emails to your customers, readers, or clients.

What if I Want to Cancel?
You may cancel a one-off service within three days after the contract is signed. Subscriptions are billed monthly through Paypal. You can cancel anytime through your Paypal dashboard. Services will still be provided until the billing cycle has ended. Retainers are billed according to blocks of time [5, 10, 15, 20] and paid in full before work is done. Cancellations are provided within the first 3 days after the contract is signed. Please read my terms of service including payment and cancellation policies.
What is Your Refund Policy?
My ambition is to see you at your best. To this end, I have set up a process which includes a strategy call, a proposal, and finally a contract. This is to ensure that your project is completed to your specifications and timeline.

Any work done during those three days will be sent to you.
