A Fry Cook’s Secret to Changing Your Life With PHP

Subscribe to the Podcast

[saf]

Not that long I was a fry cook at a local pizza joint.

I clocked into work each day, in my ill-fitting uniform, wearing my funny hat and I’d spend the next 4-5 hours wallowing in grease, yes ma’am-ing and no ma’am-ing my way through the day.

I was miserable.

But, the thing that really ate at me was deep down I believed I was capable of so much more. I KNEW I was. And, I just couldn’t figure out how I’d let my life get to the point I was at.

I was desperate for a way out.

Enter PHP.

I’d been messing around with code for awhile, but mainly HTML and CSS. And, while I could build some decent stuff… I hadn’t broke through into building the kind of robust applications that people basically throw dineros at you for.

I made it my mission… come hell or high water… that I was going to master PHP, get out of that miserable job and be the person I knew I could be.

It’s now been over six years since I last worked a “normal” job.

I’m very blessed to work from home every day. Work the hours I want to work. Take the projects I want to take. I get to homeschool my kids (which is huge for me). And, I earn enough to have things I never could have imagined as child.

I’ve built websites for online superstars like New York Times Bestselling Author, Michael Hyatt, Lewis Howes, Ray Edwards, Tim Ferriss, Inc. Magazine, Stu McLaren and others.

And, I even now get to turn around and help other developers through a YouTube channel with over 29,000 subscribers, 130,000 video views per month, and quickly approaching over 3 million total views of my videos.

And, regularly get comments from students of mine like this:

Every time I listen to your Podcasts I know I’m on the right path! I’m getting paid good money now.” – Tristan Marroquin

And this:

Just got off a coaching session with @jpmorris. Learned a lot about freelancing and targeting my services. Highly recommended!” – Helge Sverre

And this:

If you’ve followed John’s posts, webcasts, courses, etc. for any length of time, you hopefully have come to see, like I have, the value of a continuous stream of solid information  — not only just the techy nerd stuff, but the business side of web development as well.  Truth be told, that part has been more valuable to me these days.” – Jim Thomure

It’s been a wild ride!

And, here’s a little confession…

I’m really not that smart or special in any way. I was a jock growing up (you can check my YouTube channel for all the people who make fun of how thick my neck is from years of playing football).

I didn’t start teaching myself how to code until almost 23.

I didn’t have a personal tutor at age 7 (like Zuckerberg)… I wasn’t geeking out on computers in parent’s basement when I was a kid. I first discovered web development when I was in the Army stationed in Iraq.

The odds couldn’t have been more stacked against me.

And this dumb jock from Nebrask-y figured it out. Heavens knows you can. Chances are, you’re much smarter than I am. You may be starting sooner than I did… or you might have more of a tech background than I did.

My point is… if I can do this… you sure as hell can!

Don’t ever believe otherwise.

Now, of course, what matters is WHAT and HOW you learn. Meaning… what specific skills you learn and how you go about learning them.

And that’s the problem my new course PHP 101 cures. I’m convinced the step-by-step tutorials are simply the easiest (and fastest) way to learn PHP.

John is the man! I followed his steps and I am flooded with interviews in a week. I got into two Talent clouds. The very next day, I got an invitation from the talent specialists from Upwork and a lot more. I wanna shout out, he is the best in this. Thanks John for helping me out!

After viewing John’s course, I made an Upwork account and it got approved the same day. Amazingly, I got my first job the very same day, I couldn’t believe it, I thought maybe I got it by coincidence. Anyways I completed the job and received my first earnings. Then, after two days, I got another job and within a week I got 3 jobs and completed them successfully. All the things he says seem to be minute but have a very great impact on your freelancing career.

I’ve been in an existential crisis for the last week about what the heck I’m doing as a business owner. Even though I’ve been a business for about a year, I’m constantly trying to think of how to prune and refine services. This was very personable and enjoyable to watch. Usually, business courses like this are dry and hard to get through…. repeating the same things over and over again. This was a breath of fresh air. THANK YOU.

I’ve definitely learnt so much in 2.5 hours than I’d learn watching different videos online on Youtube and reading tons of articles on the web. John has a natural way of teaching, where he is passionately diving in the topics and he makes it very easy to grasp — someone who wants you to really start running your business well by learning about the right tools and implement them in your online business. I will definitely share with many of the people I know who have been struggling for so long, I did find my answers and I’m sure will do too.

I have been following John Morris for several years now. His instruction ranges from beginner to advanced, to CEO-level guidance. I have referred friends and clients to John, and have encouraged my own daughter to pay attention to what he says. All of his teachings create wealth for me (and happiness for my clients!) I can’t speak highly enough about John, his name is well known in my home.

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

John has been the most important person in my freelance career ever since I started. Without him, I would have taken 10 or 20 years more to reach the position I am at now (Level 2 seller on Fiverr and Top Rated on Upwork).
