    Hey everyone,

    So Canny Creative has been trading a little over 12 months now and today we published a post about some of things we've learned in that period of time.

    There's not much more I've learned since I wrote my article on this. The main thing I've found is to just be 100% committed to what you're doing.

    Great post Tony, reading it inspired me to knuckle down and try harder! Thanks for sharing.

    Nice one Tony, definitely some pearls to be taken away for myself there too.

    Thanks for this Tony, I have just announced that Im going freelance myself as of 1st Feb 2014 (have 2 month notice period to work first) and your post is really useful. I was thinking of asking the community here for any tips, but this article seems full of great words of advice, so thank you!

    Is it shit!
    Not really spent much time on it recently as I've got a bit of a glitch uploading content which I need the dev to sort.
    Got to sort out the SEO (learning curve starts here) and generally get it out there.
    Anything to do with making a new site = Estimated Completion x 10 + Pain In The Arse. :nod:
  11. Oh dear :(
    What's the glitch? Maybe I can help :)

    Yeah - post the glitch up and we can have a quick peak? :)
    Also - if you want to chat about SEO, feel free to pick up the phone/mail and I'll depart what I can onto you.

    That's very kind if you. :)
    I'm just having prob's adding things to my folio since a WP upgrade.
    I have a bit of a custom thing for setting thumbnail and then the images but my "upload images" functionality has gone. BOO. :(
    I know that's not much help fellas. I'm not that WP savvy.

    Will do Tony and please feel free to depart all over me.
    I kind of know what SEO is but that's about it so be prepared mate.
