- Hi guys, As Kyle as indicated, he is happier than ever not having clients and Adam seems to be all in lately, my question is if one were to want to close down their biz and join a company, but has a small team and clients along with re-occurring maintenance contracts, how would you handle that. I don't have a biz partner that I could sell to, so I am unsure how to approach this. -Regor Lledgood
- My kids have expressed some interest in what I do as a WordPress developer and have also said they want to attend a WordCamp. But I wonder, are they serious. How would you gauge true interest to see if it was worth investing the $ on a ticket for them? Would their age come into question for you?

- I’m thinking about creating my first-ever free WordPress theme and have questions on coding ethics. For example, snippets of code to create a responsive mobile menu are freely available on places like tutorial blogs, Stack Overflow and within free themes, but am I allowed to use those codes as long as I credit the source and make them open-source on a platform like GitHub? Or, should I ask for an explicit permission from authors? If licensing terms are mentioned, of course I’ll follow, but if not mentioned, what’s the best way? Thank you in advance for your advice. -Joey Q
