Going into this course I thought to myself “How much can I actually learn about social media? I have been on it for years now.” I completed an advanced Marketing diploma last year and all of a sudden thought I was qualified. What they don’t teach you is that they only skim the surface of 5 billion topics and social media was one of them.

I have had it with the day to day grind of adulting and am going to get a very over priced and comfy chair to just have a seat on and social media my life away…
On a serious note, do you know anyone that has made money in a significant way? I am very curious about the ins and outs of this kind of venture.
Keep cool peeps 🙂
