Cory Miller (that’s me) is a former newspaper journalist turned full-time entrepreneur. In 2008, he started iThemes, which builds web design software and offers cutting-edge web design training for thousands of customers around the globe.
Named the 7th fastest growing company in Oklahoma City in 2011 by the Metro 50, iThemes employs over 20 people around the globe with headquarters in Edmond, Oklahoma.
In 2011, he co-founded The Div, Inc, a nonprofit tech foundation aimed at inspiring and training the next generation of web developers through its kid’s program, Div Jr.
He is the co-author of WordPress All-in-One for Dummies (Wiley, 2011) and is a member and current communications chair of the Oklahoma chapter of Entrepreneurs’ Organization, a network of over 8,000 entrepreneurs in 40 countries with companies that have revenue over $1 million dollars annually.
He is married to Lindsey Miller, who leads the Education Program at iThemes aimed at helping provide school and educators with professional web design tools and training. They have an adorable baby boy named Caloway (born January 2013), and also two spoiled dogs, Frannie and Scooter.
I use this blog to talk about my adventures in entrepreneurship (the roller coaster ride), things I am continually learning about marketing, new business announcements (yes, I will shamelessly promote my life’s work here!) and anything else I want to share with the world, in particular, my very amateur photos, which are most likely taken with my iPhone.
