Instructor Biography

Charity Cason, Home Business Expert, Bestselling Author & Online Trainer

I love to help people make more money and change their lives!

As a trained Journalist, Bestselling Author and Online Business trainer, my job everyday is to help people change their lives and their businesses by harnessing the immense power of the Internet to their advantage.

Whether it's learning to self publish your own books or learning how to become a successful Facebook marketer, my goal is to present quality courses that are easy to understand and, more importantly, easy to implement quickly!

Learn from someone who DOES what she teaches!

That's right! Everything I teach about, I actually do in my own businesses. Yes, I said businesses, as in plural. I run multiple businesses with my husband from home, and we have done that for many years.

My businesses include things like running a busy ghostwriting team, writing and publishing bestselling fiction and non-fiction books under a variety of pen names, selling on eBay, selling on Amazon and much more.

I believe in multiple streams of income!

My gift from God is the ability to learn new things that can make people real money and being able to easily explain those tactics to just about anyone.

My desire is for you to have all of your dreams of abundance come true, and that starts with understanding all of the ways to make money online the right way.

So, who am I?

My background is as varied as my businesses! Here's a taste...

  • Degree in Broadcast Journalism

  • Worked at CNN World Report

  • Online TV Reporter/Anchor for TV show "Lawmakers" on Georgia Public Television, covering the legislative session in Atlanta

  • Newspaper Reporter

  • AM Radio show host

I've always loved telling the story and getting information to people quickly and accurately.

After leaving the Journalism field, I went into real estate for 15 years. During that time, I was a multi-million dollar producing agent, becoming the top listing agent in my office time and time again. I spent 5 years as a corporate real estate broker where I managed over 2,500 agents and taught real estate classes to hundreds of students.

When I left the real estate field, I decided to expand my home businesses, and that is where I am today!

In the last several years, I've written thousands of articles for private business clients, as well as countless books to help build client credibility. In addition, I've written multiple bestselling fiction books under two pen names that has resulted in well over 100,000 books sold since 2012.

My social media base for my pen names is over 10,000 fans, and I've now published close to 30 books, many with bestseller status.

I've created countless info products that have sold well to business people all over the globe, and my private Facebook mastermind groups have been a popular addition to my business as well.

As you can see, I'm well versed on teaching people to create multiple streams of passive income, and I want to teach you too!
