My mom told me that if it sounds too good to be true, it is. This course is free? Really? How is that possible?

I believe everyone should be able to get the basics of a website online on their own if they so choose. I make my money doing more advanced things for my clients, like marketing strategies and ad campaigns. If a time comes when you would like that sort of help, I hope you'll think of me. But if you never use my paid services yet find this free course valuable, we're all good. I love teaching and love it when people use what I've taught to further their dreams.
