This section might seem like it is obvious to some, oddly enough people get intimidated to comment on other professionals posts. This video is just one tip via the LION (LinkedIn Open Networker) members who love to network and how you can immediately take advantage of that fact alone. This is one of my secret tips that you will get just because you decided to join this course.

Commenting On Posts

Joining Groups is one of the easiest ways to network with other Like Minded professionals. You can easily engage with others who share common interests. If your goal is to build up your connections this is by far one of the easiest ways to gain more connections and add to your overall network.

Joining Groups

One of the best ways to immediately connect with other professionals on LinkedIn and get your profile seen by many. This is the single best FREE resource I have found on LinkedIn for engaging with professionals. LinkedIn does all of the marketing for you which helps get your message out to the masses. This resource should be used minimum weekly to get the most interaction.

Hello I am Lee Beattie. I am pretty much a NOMAD all my life and oddly enough have never lived in one location for more than 3 years pretty much all of my life. ~ Cool But Odd Fact ~

I found out about the "Internet" and how to use it for better in 2007. I have always wanted more in my life and the whole World Wide Web was pretty intimidating to me initially but I decided to TAKE ACTION and dive in and stop being scared to make mistakes and just make it happen no matter what. So here I am writing to you.

I have learned some very uneventful lessons because I was uneducated and made many mistakes until I uncovered some invaluable skills that help change all of that. Now I rub elbows digitally with LIKE Minded People just like YOU who are on a mission to change their LIFE as well. My hope is to share my lessons learned via some awesome Udemy courses to help you grow as well.

Shortly after starting my marketing journey and after many failed attempts, misinformation, the wrong mindset, and flat out lack of dedicated focused effort. I had that A HA moment and realized I knew how to reverse engineer to achieve results because of all of the action that I took along the way.

That moment was clearly defined by my prior experiences in the military and semiconductor industry to understand that taking small simple actionable steps repeatedly over and over helps achieve maximum results. So I believe in the That Next Man Up approach stems from my background and want to share what will help you succeed if you decide to do something about it.

My dreams of becoming financially abundant brought me to the Internet Marketing space which ultimately lead me to Udemy and now YOU! You see it really is a Small World when you focus on what you really want to do and help others in that process. In my case I want to provide courses about topics that I am extremely passionate about to people just like you who want to know so you can achieve results too.

My courses uncover many marketing strategies that flat out work and are based on the last 7 1/2 years marketing online. My hope is to share these invaluable marketing strategies to people just like yourself who want more and willing to do something about it.

My goal for 2015 is to help 100,000 students worldwide with my Udemy course content and hopefully hear many success stories along the way.

Did you know? The world's most successful (and super secretive) business people, entrepreneurs and those who are willing to learn and Take Action and the reason why I chose Udemy to share with.

I reveal a lot of my marketing secrets that most won't share in my Udemy courses! You will want to check those out below:

My Background:

United States Air Force:

You know those Laptops, Smartphones, Smart watches, Tablets, TV's and more? 50 World Wide FABS CLUB (6 of these brands are listed on top 20 most valuable Brands). That job involved alot of traveling, culture, and opening my mind to what's next and when I realized I wanted more.

Mobile Apps For Business

Being able to offer Mobile Apps which happen to be the best marketing solution ever invented by the way, to small and medium sized businesses is really cool. This technology adds to the businesses bottom line and no business should go without it but that is just my opinion. Having your business in your customers mobile phones is just a push notice away!
