Hay! Long time no see!
I’m starting a new chapter in my life with a new Youtube channel starting from scratch! But more about that in a moment.
Layouts Cafe is a project that I love, and it actually gave me some appetite for something deeper.
See, Layouts Cafe actually started because I wanted to help a friend who wanted me to teach him how to build a professional website: I didn’t have the time to teach him all that I knew and didn’t know where to start, so I thought “Why not create some child-themes or layouts with all the hard work done, and then I’ll make a video guiding him through the process, step by step“.
And that’s precisely when I came across the Divi theme from Elegant Themes, so it was perfect timing.
I though it would take me a couple of days. But it took me way more that because I really wanted to do this as best as I could!
Then, once it was done, I thought having only one child-theme wasn’t enough so I built and documented some more and even gave out a few for free along the way.
And after all that hard work working nights and weekends, on top of my day to day duties, I said to myself:
“I might as well package it and commercialize it, so that
1) I can continue doing that and being paid for it
2) I will be able to help a lot more people than just my friend, for the same amount of work”.
And that journey has led me to meeting great people, doing great partnerships, and introduced to a new world of opportunities like affiliate marketing, online courses and more.
And slowly but surely I felt the urge to go deeper, because even though I love doing creating child themes and layouts for people to use on their projects, I believe it is just one piece of the puzzle in the grand scheme of things because as much as I love sharing the fish, I have a burning desire to teach how to catch it.
So, while I will more than likely continue creating products, the Layouts Cafe Youtube channel hasn’t really been getting content because it took already so much time for a one man operation to create layouts, and content on top of it, and I didn’t really see how to integrate the broader topics I wanted to cover.
So, I’ve decided to go deeper and focus on sharing the little I know in order to help people just starting out or people thinking about starting a digital entrepreneur journey, whether as a freelancers, solopreneurs or small business owners, because I believe my strength lies in helping people brand and market themselves in the digital age. This is what I’ve been doing daily for a few years on a regular one to one commercial basis, and I believe I can be of greater help by sharing that online, and especially through a Youtube channel, that’s why I’ve decided to feed the Kaycinho Youtube channel with content, starting from scratch, so I would really appreciate if you could go have a look and support me by subscribing to the channel.
It would really mean the world to me!
Now don’t worry, I will still talk about web design, wordpress, Divi and many more topics and tools, but I will also share the business and motivational side of things, as well as the branding part of it, which in my opinion is crucial to the success of any commercial venture.

Also, for the new channel, I have an idea I’d like to explore.
My idea is to create some reviews about websites and branding in general, on the new channel, and to give some practical action points to address what needs to be fixed. This is basically me offering what I usually charge for.
Therefore I’m looking for volunteers that would like me to review their website and branding in general and that agree it will be posted public on Youtube (don’t worry – only positive criticism), and the most interesting cases will be chosen. I believe this could bring a lot of value to the owner as well as the viewers.
If you are interest, send me a message through my new website by clicking here.
And if it works, I may even offer a re-design from time to time, but for the time being I will just focus on giving value and growing the channel first.
So, if you made it that far, congrats to you my friend, the next step is to visit my new channel Kaycinho on Youtube, as well as my website Kaycinho.com, and if you want to stay in touch, from my website you can also subscribe to my other newsletter, because as mentioned before, it will cover broader topics happening on the Kaycinho brand.
So I hope to see you around and connect with you, and in the meantime, don’t forget to invest in YOUR success!
