Have you ever stared at a blank piece of paper not knowing what to write for your next newsletter, blog post, or the next chapter of your novel?
Or looked at a blank canvas and felt frozen and unable to start your next masterpiece?
Or scanned your pantry, at a loss as to what to make for dinner?
How much time have you wasted with inaction?
This starting, and looking, scanning and thinking is is often what happens when people start to build their website.
It can take days, weeks, or even months for website owners to make the decisions necessary to even start diving into the tech part of their website.
Do you want to ...
Often people jump into creating a website before having a plan, assets, or branding.
This delays the website design and development - whether you are building your site or you are hiring a professional.

Welcome to my course Website Planning and Enterprising Gals!
My Name is Lisa Sundell and I am a WordPress website designer.
Over the years I have talked to many people who need a website and want to build it themselves, but just don’t know where to start when building a website – from how to choose fonts and where to find the hex code for a color, to what is a domain name and where to buy one.
For the past 6 years I have designed small business and non-profit websites, and have done all of that research – which allows you to bypass all of that frustration and start building your website faster.
I love working with entrepreneurs and want to see women empowered with knowledge so they don’t need to hire a website person every time they need a small change to their site. When you do hire someone, you will have the background about your website to explain exactly what you need.
I am finishing up this course and am looking for students interested in taking it at a discount in exchange for:
What WordPress builder does this course use?
This course uses Elementor Pro and you will need to purchase a license (currently $49 per year). Buy Elementor Pro License Now *
If you are building an extremely basic brochure website with minimal functionality you can use the free version. I will be creating a "lite" version of this course that does not require Elementor Pro. If you are interested in that class please send a message to me.
* This is an affiliate link and I earn a small referral fee if you use it! If you do - thank you!
What WordPress theme does this course use?
For this class I will use the free Hello theme.
This theme is created by the Elementor team, so is built to work seamlessly with the Elementor builder.
It is also a lightweight theme - meaning it doesn't have "extra" features that are redundant to the features in Elementor Pro. Having fewer features means it doesn't add extra code to your website and won't slow down the loading time of your site.
Finally, as I mentioned at the beginning, it is free!
Do you offer refunds?
Not all courses are for everyone, and sometimes you need a taste of a course to know if it will work for your learning style. So watch and work through Module 1 for up to 14 days after your purchase. If you decide this course is not for you, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you have started watching Module 2, or the 14-day window has passed no refunds are given.
My "extra-special" guarantee ... If any time in the 60 days after you purchase the course if you have done all of the work and watched all of the videos, and if you realize that building your own website is not for you - you have the option to apply the purchase price of the course to a custom-designed website.
Is Enterprising Gals only open to women?
NO! While Enterprising Gals' mission is to help women with their businesses we work with everyone regardless of sex, gender identity, age, race, color, religion, sexual orientation, and national origin.
