Enough about dicks, lets get to this week’s list shall we?

2. Early bird registration for the Online Trainer Academy is now open.


I started doing online training back in 2005 before it was a thing. I had no idea what the hell I was doing back then. All I had was an Excel spreadsheet template to write programs on and a flip phone. One of my most vivid memories is when my then ex-girlfriend thought it was weird that I had all these pictures of half-naked people on my computer.

Pffffft, whatever.

Nevertheless, today, online training is a big deal. If you’re someone who’s thinking about it, but having a hard time developing the systems to make it a viable way to make money this is definitely something you should considering investing in.

You can take advantage of the early-bird registration and receive $200 off the regular price. Check it out HERE.
