Welcome to the official website for Jesse Friedman, the innovator; not to be confused with heinous men of the same name. For 22 years I have been a contributing citizen of the Internet as an inventorinnovatorauthorspeaker, and writer.

This website is dedicated to you, the self-starter, who appreciates imaginative ideas and advice on how to run your business, your blog, and your e-commerce store.

I am a long-time innovator and currently the Director of Innovation of Jetpack Business for Automattic. I am the author of Web Designers Guide to WordPress and a member of the New Riders, “Voices that Matter” series, and I’ve been a frequent writer for notable publications like Smashing MagazineCreativeBloqSearch Engine JournalJetpack, and more.

I invented Muryō a tool to catalog your notes, drawings, and journal entries, all while tracking your mood, habits, sleep, and goals.

In my time, I’ve written several books, taught 100’s of students as a professor, and organized dozens of local meetups along with a few WordCamps tech conferences. I’ve spoken at events around the world and I’ve consulted for dozens of businesses from small agencies to billion-dollar international companies.

On this blog I will focus most of my time, and yours, on sharing my experiences and knowledge to better help you run your online presence. If you’re interested in expanding on the occasional personal post that might leak into this blog head over to my Tumblr –
