Course Description

I've made over $14,000 on YouTube and I have a lot of years of experience and I'm sharing that with you to save you time and hassle of figuring out things yourself. YouTube can be a very fun and exciting place to be and can open up doors that you never imagined, but ONLY if you do it right. I learned things the hard way and now you can benefit from my experience and learn things you won't hear anywhere else.

I'm going to walk you through the process from beginning to end. We will create a YouTube account, then a channel. Then I'll show you how to make your channel look good.

Since then he has worked for top Wall Street firms as well as for some technology venders. Carlyle has worked at a notable high speed trading brokerage, a few execution management venders (Trading Systems) and also for a leading wealth management company with over $400 billion in assets.

Most of the trading and investment systems he supported were UNIX based with Windows front-end and Oracle, Sybase, IBM DB2, Microsoft or MySQL databases.

Carlyle Frank is also the producer of the #1 rated SQL training video online with tremendous feedback from people all over the world who describe his training videos as uniquely entertaining, easy to comprehend and to the point. Close to 300,000 people have enjoyed being introduced to SQL by Carlyle, in close to a year. Carlyle Frank also has many other videos with some having as much as 700,000 views and more than 10 #1 ranked videos.

Carlyle also has been published in industry journals and one of his videos were used for a global conference in Asia. The video was chosen because of how entertaining and informative it was, in a format that almost anybody could comprehend. It's all about his formula for "fast, fun and easy" learning that was inspired through frustration with the existing materials that Carlyle had to learn from. The thought process was, "Why does this have to be so hard and why can't it be fun?". The word is, "Infotainment" and the name is Carlyle Frank!
