WHY I MADE THIS COURSE

Small business owners usually struggle with promoting their business. The first thing people usually think of for promotion are Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, fliers and business cards to promote their businesses. Those are fine, but there are so many other marketing strategies for local businesses that are more effective.  This course shows you those much more effective strategies.

In addition to the course lectures, you get my help and advice! Students are able to start discussions and message me with private questions. I answer 99% of questions within 24 hours. I love helping students who take my courses and I look forward to helping you.

3-time best selling Amazon author with some of my books used in universities and high schools across the country.

  • 10+ years in entrepreneurship
  • 10+ years in SEO and marketing

When you enroll in my courses, you get:

  • Personal care and attention: I host regular office hours for my students and reply to 99% of student questions within 24 hours and my goal is to reply within 1 hour.
  • Instructor with deep expertise, proven success and knowledge that is both theoretical and practical.


I care deeply about student success, and I am committed to it. I go out of my way to help students in my courses succeed at whatever they are working on, whether it is planning, starting or growing your business.

More about me:

I am also the creator of top entrepreneur mobile apps with 2,000,000+ downloads,  host of a popular business and marketing channel on YouTube with 2,000,000+ views, successful affiliate marketer, serial entrepreneur in many other fields.

I have a BS in Computer Science from SJSU, and after working as a software engineer, I wanted to take a bigger role in the businesses I worked in, and that is how I got into business and marketing.  Today, I am one of the top online marketers and a successful entrepreneur.

What I am interested in now when it comes to business:

Personally, I am a personal productivity and emotional intelligence geek. I geek out on things like motivation, building healthy habits and creativity.

Some of my own favorite topics that I teach:

I have seen any of my students succeed in Amazon eCommerce. Selling on Amazon can be very lucrative and I love seeing my students do well.

I also teach many SEO topics that I myself use all the time. They include link-building, keyword research and using other sites like YouTube, Amazon, and even freelancing sites like Fiverr as search engines to get discovered when people are searching.

My interests outside business and entrepreneurship:

I like playing soccer, chess, dabbling in philosophy, lots of different music (one of my dreams is to start writing songs and poetry for them), and I am always daydreaming of finally getting a dog (a rescue from a shelter, of course). I am also trying to become vegan, albeit with moderate success so far.
