One of the best advice I can give to an aspiring developer is to stop cowboy coding and to NEVER EVER work directly on the production version of your website. When you start out working, especially on a CMS like WordPress, it is very tempting to do just that one small change directly on the live site. That is until you make a mistake and brick the whole thing.
Most modern hosting companies offer a one-click way to create a staging copy or your site and even if your provider does not, it is really easy to spin one up using tools like Local by Flywheel and site duplication plugins for your CMS. That will save you A LOT of grief down the road.

I just did my first talk at a big online conference this week. It was a very *interesting* experience. As a speaker, I rely a lot of audience feedback. I need to see the eyes of my listeners to feel if I need to clarify something or make a joke to keep them engaged. All of that is gone when you are speaking to your webcam and the wall behind it. I definitely have a new appreciation for people, doing amazing talks online. It's reall HARD.
Shopify VS WordPress
1. Shopify powers 1 million Websites around the world. Cost 29/month - 299/month. Limited and requires more paid plugins to get it going.
2. WordPress powers almost half a billion websites around the world. Cost nothing, just web hosting per year about 50$ and free plugins to get it going.
