A quick review reminder.
I'm a full-time Internet entrepreneur who has taught thousands of people online about website creation and marketing through my site, podcast and YouTube channel.
In 2002, I began educating others to create their own websites and monetize them with AdSense, affiliate marketing and more. In 2006, I quit my full-time job to grow my online business full time.
Since then I have learned to use a lot of different tools and software and have also done consulting part-time for those who want to learn more about website creation and Internet Marketing.
I am ecstatic to broaden my reach to the Udemy community and look forward to teaching even more people online.
