HELPING YOUR BUSINESS
Emphasize Your Core Values
At Pro Website Creators, our core values are GRITS
- Relentless Improvement
We've defined what they mean (see our About page), and we work to emphasize them with our team.
For example, Grins, we share a joke of the day with each other as part of our daily task list that we post in Basecamp, our project management software we love.
Here are two favorites:
(1) A taxi passenger tapped the driver on the shoulder to ask him a question. The driver screamed, lost control of the car, nearly hit a bus, drove up onto the sidewalk, and screeched to a halt just inches from a shop window. For a second everything went quiet in the cab. Then the driver said, "Look, don't ever do that again. You scared the daylights out of me!"
The passenger apologized. "I didn't realize that a little tap would scare you so much."
"Sorry," the driver replied, "It's not really your fault. Today is my first day as a taxi driver. I've been driving a hearse for the last 25 years."
(2) What did the momma cow say to the baby cow out in the field later in the day?
"It's pasture bedtime."
We may make this a regular feature of the report!
But the point is, emphasize your core values with your team. Do something to keep them alive!
Proper Way to Name Images Before Uploading Them to Your Website
It is important to properly name your images or any media you want to upload on your website. Doing so would make it easier to find files and improve your website's SEO.
It's also critical for Accessibility reasons.
Watch Dave's video explaining how to properly name your images.
SECURITY ISSUES AND UPDATES
Update LastPass Now!
It would be the smartest move to update LastPass if you're using it as your password manager. There was a security bug in their system that could have revealed credentials entered on a site you previously visited.
LastPass issued a fix on September 12 solving the security bug mentioned. For Chrome users, the update should be applied automatically. If you're using a LastPass app, update it ASAP!
This security bug doesn't mean that you should give up on using Password Managers, or any software that has a security flaw. Just be careful by
- Having unique passwords for every login
- Enabling two-factor-authentication (2FA) for critical accounts
- Keeping all software up-to-date on all of your devices
We discussed on a previous Maintenance Report how to protect your data/password from hackers. Here's a link to February's Report to check that out.

THE SITE OF THE MONTH
This website focuses on a scalable yoga-based movement program and training system using “Yoga in Motion,” or YoMo, to manage and decrease chronic pain.
While we didn't do the design, we did create an event management system with allowing people to purchase "credits" that can be used to purchase training classes.

Have a great rest of the month, and let us know how we can help you!
