Julia Taylor is the CEO and Founder of GeekPack where she teaches her students how to code, build websites, and fix what others find to be difficult.


In this episode, we talk about her transition from working in corporate to starting her own business and traveling the US in an RV with her husband. Julia talks about how she created her online community teaching women about coding and shares advice for people who are struggling to get their online business off the ground.


We also talk about:

  • The #1 thing Julia would do differently if she started today
  • The reluctance she experienced when she started her business
  • Feeling like giving up when things aren’t working out the way you thought they would
  • How to tackle health benefits working for yourself

Learn More About Julia:


Some people look at the sky and see stars; others see constellations. Some people look at lines of code and see a website; Julia saw a path to empower women in building their dreams. 


As a (former) military wife, self-taught web developer, and lover of location independence, Julia has taught over 2,500 women to say "YES" to any WordPress request, but not only that, “YES” to themselves, and “YES” to creating life on their own terms. 


Mastering WordPress has not only been the single biggest driver for Julia's career progression, but it has also enabled her to follow her dreams of a TRULY location-independent lifestyle. From a military wife moving every two years with zero career progression, she has since been able to work from home, work from her RV (yep, she was a full-time RVer for 1.5 years), and now works from anywhere! 


Julia is incredibly fortunate to run her business from the comfort of her sofa (or wherever in the world she might be)... all because she said “YES” to herself and her dreams, and learned a marketable and in-demand tech skill! 


Empowering women and seeing others succeed is the biggest motivator for Julia. And so, she created a program to teach others the skills that allowed her to take back control of her life and start living on her own terms.
