About The Author

Hi, my name is Todd, and I’m the author of Websites Made Simple.

I currently live in the States with my wife and four boys. I speak two languages (Japanese and English), and I like to spend my free time traveling with my family and playing with my four boys.

I’m an entrepreneur at heart, and really enjoy the process of building online businesses and creating the websites that support them.

However, I haven’t always felt that way. There was a time when I really struggled when building my own websites, and it wasn’t fun at all.

But eventually, I got there. And in the process, I learned a few things along the way.

 

Necessity Is The Mother of All Invention

The reason I started building websites was because I was too poor to hire someone else to do it for me. As you probably know, it can cost hundreds, if not thousands, to pay someone else to build a website. I didn’t have that kind of money to throw around, so I had to figure out how to do it on my own.

So I buckled down and started trying to learn everything I could about the process of creating websites. And, man, was it a long, hard road in the beginning. It was extremely confusing because I didn’t know where to start or who to listen to. I kept getting pulled in different directions by different people saying different things.

You know, you need this tool, or you should use that service, and it’ll make life so much easier when you build your site. I got so distracted and wasted so much time, money and energy when I was just starting out.

 

The Search For A Useful Resource

After years of frustration and going at it alone. I began to wonder if I had been missing something. Was there anywhere on the web that was providing the proper education needed for those just getting started learning how to build their websites?

I searched high and low, and came up empty handed. Some sites offered highly technical instruction, intended for advanced users. Others were focusing on how to make money with a website. But nowhere could I find a resource that was dedicated to helping ordinary people build the website they needed make their dreams come true.

No one was helping this group of people, and it made me stop and wonder why. The only two reasons I could come up with were:

  1. It’s difficult to simplify and teach this stuff.
  2. There’s not much money to be made doing it.

Both, very good reasons why I wasn’t finding anyone else providing such a resource. But neither a good reason for me to stand by and keep ignoring the need for such a website any longer.

 

Why I Want To Help You…

I truly believe that the work we do has to be meaningful and fulfilling. And the best way to accomplish that is by helping others reach their goals, or solver their problems. And that’s what I get to do on a daily basis.

I feel very fortunate to have found work where I receive as much happiness as I give. I love interacting with my visitors, and helping them learn to build their own websites has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life.

And for that very reason, I’m going to continue to seek out and help those who need it.

So, if you’re one of those people, let’s get started!

It’s easier than you think.
