When it’s Time to Ask for Help | LifterLMS Done For You Service

help (verb) definition: make it easier for (someone) to do something by offering one’s services or resources. Sometimes we all need a little help. This is a busy time of year.

Tell us about your history with WordCamp Los Angeles (WCLAX). I first got involved in WCLAX in 2015, mostly because I’m pretty bad at saying no to things and Adam Silver, a co-organizer that year, told me I could come for free if I volunteered by helping to hand out t-shirts and clean-up…
