People believe online courses are a waste of money.

  • “There are no jobs for me because of the pandemic, the internet, automation”
  • “Yeah, right — I’m not paying someone on the internet to tell me what to do”
  • “I have tried this once, it didn’t work for me”
  • “If only I had studied X”

Step 1: Have a specific goal in mind

Step 2: Learn from practitioners

Step 3: Apply learning immediately
