New People, New Friends

I recently took up a new area of study. It was surreptitious in a sense, at least for me. I had been considering taking some sort of online marketing course and I haven’t stumble across a course that really caught my attention. It was a large sum of money to join but it really seemed promising so I took the plunge.

I live in Europe, Denmark in particular. The course that I decided to take was being offered out of the US. Not that it really matters when it comes to online learning, but it really throws off your schedule when you’re almost on the other side of the world and they’re having a live seminar when you should be in bed. Oh well, you can’t have everything.

Anyway, one of the really great things about this course is the people. We engage through a private Facebook group and there are some real inspiring people that we get to follow along with as we learn. There was one fellow who was particularly helpful in the beginning, so I would like to mention him at this juncture. His name is Tom and he came to my help directly when I had a question about a particular piece of software. It’s really great when people take the time to help you when you’re in a pinch and he was quick to lend a hand.

That’s the thing I like about this group, we help each other out. So, I am about to return the favor to Tom and make mention of his website here. His company, working out of Canada is called Green Genie SEO. I don’t know much about Tom or his company, but I get a good sense about him anyway. After all, he was kind enough to reach out and help a complete stranger on the other side of the world for no other reason than just to say so.

We have a conference coming up in October 2016 and I hope to be attending so I can meet not only Tom but many others who have been equally helpful. Should be a great time and a real learning experience as well.

I can’t wait.
