Tech Help for Solopreneurs
solving your various tech-related challenges and frustrations.
Hi, I’m Peter
I help solopreneurs solve their tech-related challenges
You can read more about me here
I have 20 years of experience in tech stuff solopreneurs typically need. (websites, cloud services, videos, images, social media, domains, scheduling apps, emails, etc.)
I originally come from the film industry, where I’ve been spending my past decade in both creative and technical roles. (like the Oscar winner Dune movie :))
Nowadays I spend my freetime with my wife and 2 children, and work from home.
Since I was a child, I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have a side-project. These have been things like making stop-motion animation with my LEGO (around age 8), writing articles about zombie movies (about 12), writing a simple software for a company (18), teaching visual effects (22?), being the founder of a public-speaking practice club (25), presenting a local TEDx talk (at 27 – in Hungarian with English subtitles 🙂 )…
And many more I don’t want to bore you with.
So I grew adept early in my life in a wide range of tech tools that were needed for both the projects themselves, and for their online presence. They were like mini businesses.
On the way, I have been also getting a lot of request for my “creative technology”-related experience too. “I’d need a website, could you help?” “Which camera should I buy for my videos?” “How did you do those social media ads?” “Could you teach me how to edit this video?” “How can I add text to this photo of mine?” “Can you help me create a simple logo?”
So I decided to start a business on that 🙂

Most of my clients seek me out for one of these reasons:
- Their business is new and they need to set up everything from scratch.
- Their business is leveling up and it requires new solutions now.
- Sometimes that was working yesterday stopped working today.
- People who had assistants for a long time and now
they need to/want to do it alone.

What People Are Saying
"I'm here to tell you Péter is absolutely brilliant at this. I came to him a bundle of anxiety about some tech challenges I was having, and he treated me like the intelligent, competent adult that I am, which calmed my fears and allowed me to learn.
Péter is pure joy to work with."
"Working with Peter has been a joy. Many times when solving the technical issues, which usually feels lousy, I never feel alone or worried because Peter always tries to dig deeper or find alternatives. He is very exploratory and great at navigating where the problems are. Peter is also very patient and a good listener that you can feel safe and supported around his presence. I highly recommend working with him!"
After we put out any burning tech issues that are making my clients lose money, time, or energy, I help them come out of this overwhelm, and rebuild their confidence in their own tech skills.
(Even if they think they don’t have any 😉)
Unfortunately standard tech solutions are usually being “forced” on clients. I offer customized solutions, taking into account your business as a whole, and you as a person.
Did you know that professional programmers spend most of their work-hours not understanding what is happening in front of them?
So don’t worry.
I help my clients with a patient, encouraging, partnering approach, that is customized to their personal learning styles.
I’m a trained coach as well. Probably that’s why I approach tech help and consulting in a similar way.
It’s OK to feel
lost in tech

Solo-preneurship doesn't mean you need to do everything on your own.
Most of my clients spend between a couple of hours to 20+ hours a month working with me on the tech and media tasks and challenges of their businesses.
We put out any burning fires that came up since we last met. We work on expanding, aligning or simplifying the digital toolsets and processes they are using at the moment, and we typically work on some project tasks as well - two typical examples of these are: tweaking or rebuilding their websites, or creating and uploading some course materials.
My clients also frequently find that during our live sessions they feel more confident doing tasks they usually dread, either because they are difficult, complex, or just boring. So we cover a lot of those as well together.
I have sweet deals to help you this way:
40USD/hour in 10 hour packages
(to be used within 3 months),
or custom deals below 40 USD if you commit to more than 10 hours/month

My 20 minutes in exchange for your 20 minutes
If you let me pick your brain for 20 minutes
with market research questions* privately,
then my brain is yours to pick for the following 20.

You can use your 20 minutes for asking tech questions, solving a burning tech issue together, an overview of the systems you use, and what you might want to drop to save frustration or money, etc.
