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.
