This week is very significant for me in my blogging/ internet marketing career. It is my first time to teach in the Internet Marketing elective in the AIM MBA class and the first day of Maven Secrets.
Here are the 3 Things I learned on My First Day in AIM:
1. I'm now a professor...
I felt old at the same time honored. The label of "professor" or "guru", I think needs to be earned and since I'm just starting, I'm here to prove that I'm worthy of the title. I like to be Professor X of the X-Men who nurture young people to enhance their natural capabilities. (Not the stereotyped image of an old power tripping professor)
Congratulations to Lord for winning the Maven Secrets Scholarship Contest! His "Fresh Buko ala Ube Ice Cream" blog post stood out from all the entries. Why did I choose his entry?
I'm giving out Fast Action Bonuses to people who will register immediately. I will reward the bonuses based on the time they register and pay. The fastest way is to pay through Paypal but of course, you can also pay in the bank during lunchtime.
Maven Secrets, in collaboration with AIM W. SyCip Graduate School of Business, will be launching on June 29, Monday, for enrollment (limited slots). Classes start on July 1 and end on September 30, 2009.

I am opening a scholarship slot (worth P25,000) for aspiring bloggers and internet marketers. To join the Maven Secrets scholarship contest, all you need to do is create a blog post answering the two questions below:
1. What is your desired outcome for your professional blog or internet marketing project?
2. How would you feel when you achieve it?
Post a link to the blog post in the comments section to officially enter the contest. Deadline for entries is on June 28, Sunday. I will announce the winner, based on the quality of the answer, on June 29, Monday.
Join us for a Webinar on June 9! I'm running a webinar for my Maven Secrets subscribers and OAP readers who might be interested to know the answers to these sent questions. I plan to answer all the questions as honestly and frankly as possible. This is part of my pre-launch for the Maven Secrets Program. I do hope you can join us...
