The Genesis framework by the folks at StudioPress provide an excellent platform for beginners, designers, and developers to get up and running with their ideas. Check out their demos or Google Genesis child themes for a million and one options.

Local Service Providers
Use Thumbtack.com to get local clients and get yourself some “barnacle SEO”. This one is good for services to homeowners.
I use SEMRush (Search Engine Marketing) as part of my keyword research process. They provide lots of data for free, and much more with a paid account. Use that link to sign up.
Genbook offers appointment scheduling, reviews, social media marketing, and all sorts of other services. And it’s very affordable!
I do that best with Workflowy. It helps organize and index my brain into easy to manage to-do lists.
SiteGround came highly recommended to me and after a year I can attest to their being the best at being perfect for the needs of a small business WordPress website. Above all else is their chat technical support – literally 24/7.
