Are you looking to grow your business? Yes?! I am going to walk you through the courses that changed my blogging life and income.
In the beginning I struggled I thought I could rewrite the book and DIY all the things I needed. After a lot of hair pulling and sleepless nights I gave in and spent the money.
I invested in me and my blogging future. And to this day I do not regret it. In fact if I could do it all over again I would have taken all these courses sooner.
These 3 courses helped me:
- Grow my Pinterest following
- Increase my repins & traffic
- Double my pageviews
- Triple my income
- Learn SEO & gain new followers
- Broaden my income and affiliate sources
- Turn my blog into a business
These three courses helped me take my blog to the next level.
If you are just starting a blog.
Invest in yourself and purchase a Genesis theme wordpress platform through a valid host. This was my first mistake in blogging I chose a pretty platform that was not Genesis and oh did I regret the choice. Genesis is a must.
I am currently hosted through Bluehost and their web services and 24/7 technical support department are great. You can hop over to Bluehost and checkout all the options available to you. Bluehost also offers a great introductory special to new bloggers. You could be up and running with in the half hour.

I want to tell you more about the courses that have made all the difference in my blogging career.
Please note I am not going to tell you that I went from zero to making $10,000 in my first four months of blogging. Like I said I flustered and tried and I finally found these great courses that made all the difference.
So I want to be clear that I am recommending products that I have used and believe in. Products that have helped me get to where I am today.
