Class Notes

I make this class much more than Basic and I really want to see you succeed in selling on eBay, so attending this class gives you 90 day e-mail support on the topics covered.  

The class itself is 3.5 to 5 hours long depending on class interaction. The actual location may change based on the class size, but I will notify registered students in advance and it will not be a big mileage difference, just room capacity change.

The price ($99) is for each student in an open class. The distance I will travel to a class depends on the attendance.  If you want a private class or one for your business, please contact me so we can discuss the details. 

If the time and date are not good for you, let me know your interest so I can notify you of the next class close to you. 

Bring extra students with you. Both you and they each get a $10 discount.

If you do not have basic computer skills, contact me for assistance in advance. We will have to make a few adjustments so you can get the most from the class and not slow the pace down

Sorry, I do not want personal computers to be used during class unless it is a private class. They distract from the overall class and we appreciate your understanding.
Confirm your place in class by paying in advance.
