  1. Lindsay – South African. Travel enthusiast. Harry Potter obsessed. Actuary in the making.

    I was so excited for this workshop. I’ve traveled a lot and been looking for a way to record and share my travels with family and friends back home while I’m on the road. This training was perfect for this! Tony is incredibly patient, helpful and knowledgeable. I had no idea I could do so much stuff for free. I can’t wait to get my website perfected and start posting regularly! Thank you, Tony!

      Thank you Lindsay. You are a fast learner and your enthusiasm for life is contagious. I look forward to start following your Blog. See you at the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Training. TT

  2. African Students Abroad (ASA) – Johannesburg – A girl from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC eloko ya makasi!). I certainly do consider myself blessed, my parents sacrificed a lot to get us into some of the best schools in Kinshasa, and later universities. I studied in South Africa, and have learnt so much since my days in Kinshasa. My outlook of the world has changed completely, and I KNOW there MUST at least 100s of others like me who wished someone, somehow shared some tips, information and even more so inspiration with them through this big scary journey called life especially as a young adult who left the comfort of her traditional family home to go study abroad. I am an engineer by trade, a lover of all things beautiful, and a foodie by everything else. My dream for African Students Abroad (ASA) is to become THE platform of exchange for African students in the diaspora to make your journey smoother and also equip you with knowledge to get that degree, and make great friends in the process!

    Merci beaucoup Tony! J’ai beaucoup appris et je me sens plus comfortable avec mon blog! Day well spent, super productive and probably the best value for money course wise on the market 🙂

  6. juleshealthchat – I began in the health industry as a podiatrist and still practice, specializing in pain management and skin and joint auto-immunity. Over the past 25 years in practice I have completed a degree in Psychology and Communication and Functional Medicine. FM looks at the interplay between genetic inheritance, lifestyle, diet, exercise and stress and how that impacts on sustaining or regaining health. Aside from assisting individuals to regain their own health, using a step by step process, I am committed to educating people so they are able to make life choices that will lead them towards health and not towards illness.

    Thank you Tony. I learned a great deal. Lovely blog options.

  7. Kate – Johannesburg, South Africa – Hey....I'm a South Carolinian gal living in South Africa with my husband. I'm trying to find my feet here and documenting it along the way. When I'm not blogging, I like to: read, eat, travel, swim, scuba dive, play with my fur-babies, and sing in the shower.

    Thanks very much, Tony! Your workshop was very detailed and concise. I think this will be just the thing I need to get into the freelance writing field here in South Africa!
