"Presenter was very clear and easy to understand. I learned many useful tips and understand now much more about the functionality on my Mac." Derek Crummy

"Excellent course. Very thorough and detailed. Lots of interesting tips. Well done". Thank you.  Jackie Miller

"I thought I was quite confident with my mac knowledge but within just a few videos I found myself learning several useful tips that I never knew about. Very simple and clear explanations and really well presented. I can see myself returning to this course as a reference for many years. A huge amount of useful info for people just beginning on macs and plenty more for those looking to sharpen up their existing knowledge to a higher level." Shilendra Selvan

"With just one class I learned way more about my MAC than any other person taught me in my school...where I needed a MAC. Great course, very needed right now since I don't want to broke or do anything wrong with my MAC. Thank you."  Mayra Guadalupe Gonzalez Vazquez

"An excellent course for understanding my Mac. I learnt many new and useful features I never knew existed. This course will definitely elevate you to the next level of Mac user. Highly recommended!" James Steele


COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Hi there, 

Are you overwhelmed by thousands upon thousands of videos on youtube about how to use your Mac with tips and tricks?

Learn your Mac in under an Hour? Learn tips and tricks in 10 minutes or less? Sounds familiar? I know because I have been there too.

Are you frustrated with the fact that you can't find a comprehensive and interactive Mac course that will help you learn the basics and intermediate skills to be a bright star with your computer? A course that will allow you to ask questions, to request additional videos on everything regarding your Mac, it's not easy to find. There's a lot of noise. It is simply too much to take in.

You need one course that will set you aside from everyone else. No more wasting time researching for the perfect course, because there is no such a thing than the perfect course unless it is looked after by its teacher. 

No more hundreds of tabs on your browser to try to find an answer. 

That's why I created: Mastering Your Mac 2017: 10x your Productivity 

You might be thinking: Yeah, right, another of those courses! I saw other courses out there, some are indeed awesome, but they still lack one common thing: Interactivity with the teacher. I saw hundreds of unanswered questions, unresolved issues from students who could not get their questions answered.  Mac basics is not a topic many are looking for online, and that's why I felt this gap needed to be filled with a trustworthy ongoing course. You hear me right: Ongoing.  It will be ongoing because We are committed here, with your help and feedback to update this course periodically and make it remarkable for you to reference and to get inspired from, over and over for life.

Benefits of the course: 

  • Fully understand the basic functions to operate your computer 
  • Become incredibly faster and more efficient in executing basic tasks 
  • Feel confident in using the Finder and customise it for your needs.
  • Being able to organise your files, Music, Work documents, Video clips and more using internal, external and virtual drives 
  • Full understanding of iCloud and Apple ID 
  • Capable of using all the main apps that come standard with your Mac 
  • Feel confident connecting through wifi and setup accessories 
  • Full understanding of the Photos app
  • Comfortable using Mail 

Description:

CEO at Meijin Limited and Apple Certified Trainer

I have been using Macs for over 15 years, and I have been teaching it for the last 10.

I am passionate about teaching and sharing my skills and discoveries with people who are willing to learn and share as well. I have used Windows systems in the early 90's, and I was a bit intimidated by the Mac when I purchased one for the first time almost two decades ago. So If you are a Windows user, I know what you are going through.

I honestly believe the Mac can change the way you work or perform your art, without the hassling of fixing things that don't deserve your time.

I started using my mac in my early music career by composing soundtracks for theatre, then moved to writing my music and used programs such as Garageband, Logic Pro, Protools and others extensively. I also have used Final Cut, iMovie, After Effects for some years in depth.

I am passionate about investing and have five years of experience in property investing, Forex, and trading in general.

I don't consider myself an expert. However, I have dived into different fields in the last 20 years that got me involved in the professional partnership.

Things I do and am passionate about:

Music Composer 

Music teacher 

Yogi enthusiast 

Guitar teacher 

Property investing 

Trading  Marketing & Digital products making 

Personal Development 

Book writing

If any of these topics interest you, please let me know, and I might create something I can share with you. I love suggestions, positive and negative constructive feedback that can help me improve and deliver my best to you.

Professional background:

Ceo and Founder of Meijin Limited.  Meijin Academy is a brand under Meijin Limited, which is a community about learning new skills to earn an income from home.
