What’s Kurt doing now?1

Last updated: July 14th 2021

For just over a year, I strictly self-quarantined with my family in Chicagoland. I’m grateful to work in e-commerce, an industry least disrupted by The Bad Thing™. We were already a mostly remote team, so our work continued largely uninterrupted. As of July 2021, we have returned to our offices, and looking forward to the Roaring Twenties II.

Exemplary Client Work:

Recent Client Projects:

My current commitments are:

  1. Helping Shopify Plus merchants like HOONIGAN make more money through my consultancy.
  2. Hosting a top 3% podcast: Unofficial Shopify.2
  3. Developing public Shopify apps. (We don’t offer private app development.)
  4. Collaborating with my wife on her Disney World planning Shopify store.
  5. Providing advisory services to select clients and P.E. firms.

Time permitting, I will consider:

Unfortunately, I have to pass on:

Getting in touch:

  1. Schedule a call ($300 USD)
  2. Purchase a Website Teardown
  3. Apply as a client
  4. Request a quote or interview
  5. Join our Facebook group
  6. Apply to be a podcast guest

I know you can figure out my email address easily, but to protect my time I’d strongly prefer that…

To defend my inbox, we mark most cold outreach efforts and all involuntary newsletter sign-ups as spam.

If you send us a message, I promise we’ll read it, but I may pass due to high demand for my time.

Footnotes:

1 This is a now page, and if you have your own site, you should make one, too.

2 Have your own podcast? Check out my pro gear guide.

3 In general, I expect to be paid to speak. I will sometimes waive my fee for non-profit, community events if I am the opening keynote. At a minimum, I need my travel & hotel accommodation covered. [Press info]

4 I have not accepted an app demo offer in the last three years. To get your app in front of me, trying give it free to one of my clients instead.
