I have huge respect for Gary Vaynerchuk – he is about 10 years ahead of the curve in terms of online business ethics and transparency, so if you're thinking about getting started in the online game, you and you haven't caught up with his books & videos, you should switch off your TV for a couple of days & grab a pen, take some notes, and write down an action plan based on your skillsets and passions.

I'm about to launch my first online training product on video marketing and video creation, and Gary makes it very clear that if you have skills that others want to benefit from, it's never been easier and cheaper to get started.

So how do you get started? Well, buy a couple of Gary's products, get yourself a simple WordPress website and start writing about your skills, offering free downloads in exchange for your email address, and then once you've got a few dozen, start asking them how you might be able to help. And, better still, hang out on the Warrior Forum, a superb place for finding out how to get started. If you have any questions, please do fill in your details on this page (or at the bottom, in the comments section).

Wishing you every success as you build your online empire,

Dez.

Well, I’ve taken the plunge and got a copy of the developer version of the Thesis Theme for WordPress. I must say, it’s enormously flexible, and, at last, I can customize how WordPress looks in its design, without having to worry about spending lots of time debugging php code. Yippeee! I should add, that Thesis is more than just a theme – it’s actually a theme framework – so it has many powerful features that, as yet, I’m only scratching the surface of. Check out the Thesis Video here FFI. I’ll post a video about my discoveries as I get to grips with the rich feature set.
