“Become the best version of yourself.” An Interview with Rich Tabor

Businesses big and small, and doing great WordPress work

Rich has been doing some of the most exciting and innovative work around Gutenberg, and recently had his theme shop ThemeBeans, and Gutenberg project CoBlocks (plus others) acquired with him joining GoDaddy as a Senior Product Manager of WordPress Experience.

I had the pleasure of working with Rich on CoBlocks, and I was very very impressed with him. Rich is has superb vision for the future of WordPress and the web, and this interview on Post Status treads a nice line between Rich’s future working on WordPress at a bigger scale at GoDaddy, and his past experience running multiple successful WordPress businesses:

Learn to identify opportunities that you are perfectly suited to execute on, then dive right in. Don’t hesitate to ask for help and don’t be afraid to try something new. Learning how to learn and then taking that a step further by continuing to learn every single day, is a catalyst for enormous personal and professional growth.

All of which is a way of saying when Rich gives advice like this, he has “skin in the game” in having done it. Well worth a read, and well worth keeping an eye on GoDaddy’s WordPress experience in the near future.
