The Best Yet

I am reluctant to say a course is the best on Udemy because there are so many different courses covering many different subjects approaches etc. OK. Well for this course i am going to put discernment before my principle ! This course is probably the best course on Udemy..phew there i said it ! why? Because it covers the fundamentals of life of growth in very simple step by step way. A lot of common sense here..but don't sniff at that...commons sense is not very common. And to find a teacher of this calibre who has a way of making you sweat: (and smile) Truly a gift what a heaven sent course this is - by Paul Soffe,

Online marketing consultant

Growing up in Silicon Valley and the daughter of nerds, I couldn't help but be a technogeek with my fingers on every keyboard telneting and ftp'ing everywhere possible. I got my electrical engineering degree from CalPoly in San Luis Obispo and worked at Apple, SGI, Adobe, Yahoo and Cisco before deciding to head off on my own as a marketing consultant. One of my lessons from the early days in customer support is how to help smart people learn without feeling stupid. We all have to start somewhere, so let's make the journey enjoyable.
