November 2016 Report Card

I feel like a broken record with these “excuses” each month but the simple fact is I can only do so much. With that I have to prioritize what is important to me and in certain months like this one things like The Blog, Social Media & The YouTube channel are going to suffer. 

With that said though I launched a new course this month called Merch by Amazon – How to start your own t-shirt business.  I also doubled my best month ever in sales on Udemy which I am beyond proud of.  Thank you to all of you who keep leaving me these amazing reviews in my courses. It really keeps pushing me to do what I do and LOVE what I do. 

All of this along with moving into my very first home with my beautiful fiance really kept me busy this month. This is a picture of us in front of our new home and we are both so excited to start this next amazing journey. Until next month my friends, happy learning!

Hi, I’m Dan Vega. I am a Software Engineer living just outside of one of my favorite places in the world, Cleveland, Ohio. I am a self-taught programmer who firmly believes that you can accomplish anything in this life if you put your mind to it, roll up your sleeves and are willing to put in the work.

I have been writing software for over 18+ years now and I use my knowledge, passion, and influence to help other developers achieve their goals. I teach online and currently, have over 30,000 students.

When I am not writing software, I have a number of things that really keep me busy. I love to read books, listen to podcasts and watch online courses. I have a real thirst for knowledge and it consumes me every single day of the week. I also love to run & lift heavy weights which keep me balanced throughout the week.
