If you are experiencing technical issues or you have a question about how to use Wave please post in this category.

Join us here for a discussion of future features and brainstorming.

Icebreaker for this week

Where do you go, or who do you go to, when you need help with your business?

    Hi everyone. My name is Mark and I'm starting up a subscription based web design business to make it affordable for small business to get a website. Haven't launched my own website just yet, so I'll post in this forum when I have.

    **Where do you go, or who do you go to, when you need help with your business? **I hit Google. Read as much as possible - but not Wikipedia. I also bounce ideas off friends and get them to proof read for me when possible.

    Hi everyone, I'm Rose and I run RED Virtual Solutions, providing flexible professional administrative, secretarial and creative assistance and support to busy entrepreneurs in companies of all sizes. My main focus is on words - transcription, proofreading, content-writing, formatting - but really I do all sorts of different things every day - which is one of the reasons I enjoy it so much!

    'Where do you go, or who do you go to, when you need help with your business?' I am a member of a fantastic VA Members' Club and most of my queries are directed towards my fellow members, although Google is a pretty good friend too!

    Hi, All! I'm Kat - I work for Wave as the Manager, People & Culture, supporting all of the fantastic folks who make Wave what it is!

    Although I work for Wave full time, I'm involved with a few businesses on the side (icecream, anyone?); part of why I wanted to work at Wave is because I believe so strongly in our Brave Entrepreneurs - folks like you - because I am one, too. When I need help, I'm fortunate to have a great support system amongst my family of Entrepreneurs, who've been there and done the whole small biz thing several times over. That being said, it's wonderful to be a part of a community of folks who are figuring it out, like I am.

    When I'm not working with our phenomenal team here at Wave, you'll find me scooping ice cream (trying to avoid eating it), petting dogs, and learning more about HR and inclusion in tech.

    Hi everyone! Long time fan of Wave and co-founder of She Geeks Out, we run fun events for tech and tech-adjacent women and offer corporate training on diversity, equity, and inclusion. :)

    Hey Rachel - this is awesome. If She Geeks Out ever comes Toronto way, this would be great to explore for our team at Wave! Always looking to build our skills in these areas :)

    Not new on here or anything, but I still thought I'd say hi!

    Welcome, everyone!

    I have a pair of business partners I rely on for just about everything. Whenever something comes up and I need help, I reach for our Slack window. Between the three of us and decent googling skills, we managed to tackle pretty much anything. We all have our own network to tap into as well. Basically, my best tool is other people. My next best tool is being the kind of person who isn't embarrassed to ask a stupid question!
