Hustling for Handball

When I am not coding WooCommerce-related things, my other career as an international athlete. From a purely logical standpoint it has been a terrible career choice because it tends to pay negatively and has put a lot of wear and tear on my body. There have been times when I’ve seriously considered buying a cane because my feet hurt so badly. There was also that time I dislocated my sterno-clavicular joint and couldn’t raise my arm over my head. My clavicles are permanently uneven now. But at the same time, I’ve represented my country in international sports for 10 years, which is something very few people get to do. WooCommerce definitely pays the bills, but as one of my teammates put it, handball is my side hustle.

Four defenders in frame? Someone must be open, but I'm so desperate for action shots that I will post one where I almost assuredly should have passed.

I play handball on the USA national team and recently, we placed third at the North American and Caribbean Championships in Puerto Rico, which qualified us to participate in the Pan-American Championships this month in Cuba. Unfortunately, getting to Cuba is not cheap and Handball is still almost completely unknown in the USA so we’re not bringing in the big sponsors. We’ve been training for these games for 2 years. Many of my teammates moved to Auburn, AL to train full-time together and I’ve been playing semi-professionally in France. There are 12 countries going to Cuba and 5 get to leave with a ticket to the World Championships!

So What’s the Deal

In honor of my “side hustle”, for the next TEN DAYS (ending 15 May) I am going to be putting my main hustle in service of handball. I will answer any WooCommerce question, or complete any small WooCommerce-related project in exchange for a donation to the USA Women’s Quest to Cuba. I’m not officially billing you, so what you donate is up to you, but please don’t expect me to write a huge 3rd-party integration for a $5 donation. We’ve only got 10 days, so things I can turn around for you in 1-3 hours is perfect.

Any question that you can’t figure out on your own, I will answer (or tell you I can’t). Any place you’re stuck trying to code your own solution, I will help you solve. Any tweak to your web store that you haven’t gotten around to finding a developer for, I’m here.

You get a little WooCommerce help and the satisfaction of knowing that you are supporting the group of really dedicated and hard-working ladies on Team USA.
