Founder of WPKurzus

What were you doing before you joined the Uprise program?

When they called me and told me I got in, it was just crazy because at the start of this year, I’d just reflected on how the past year was and what I wanted to achieve in 2018, and getting into the program was very important because I knew it was going to change everything. I was scared and happy at the same time.

Note: Before joining Nomad Academy Attila had recently launched his WordPress tutorial business and was looking for the confidence, support, and skills to scale it.

How has your career changed since graduating from Uprise Academy?

My hobby is my work. I've been growing my company (WP Kurzus) since the program, expanding the team, and am now looking to go more global with it.

What was the most surprising thing about your experience with Uprise Academy?

I’m more focused, have a clear sense of direction in what I want to do and the steps I need to take to get there. I’ve become more confident, I push myself all the time and constantly step out of my comfort zone.

What advice would you give to someone thinking about applying for the program?

If you want to future-proof your career, you need to do this. It’s a very good start as you’re learning together, helping each other, you meet other business owners and the different perspectives help a lot.

If you can afford it, think of it as an investment in yourself. It was the most intense but best part of my life.
