I’m an uneducated moron

That’d be the conventional wisdom.

I only have my H.S. diploma.

No college degree.

Certainly no fancy-pants Master’s or doctorate. I’m just a lowly web developer building “boring” web sites for equally boring and uneducated people. To hear the know-it-alls tell it, anyway.

But, as I sit here…

On the land I own free and clear…

Looking at the house I’m building (and own free and clear)…

Pondering all the student loan debt I DON’T have…

I can’t help but think:

“This moron has done pretty damn well for himself.”

Some might call that arrogant. Other (smarter) people might see the lesson in it. Regardless, I think it’s becoming more and more obvious what a raw deal college is. And, specifically, talking about tech…

In my humble, but accurate, opinion…

There’s very few tech jobs that actually require a degree.

Sure, a few here and there.

But, far less than the screechers who will send me hate-mail about this would like you to believe. In most cases… a boot camp, an online course, hell just YouTube somtimes… will not only be cheaper, but give you a better education.

That and you don’t have to worry about all the “safe-spacers”…

And, purple-haired weirdos that tend to populate colleges these days.

In any case, do what you want…

I’m just giving you an alternate perspective.

You can be plenty happy…

And, do more than fine financially…

Without a bunch of letters behind your name.

(And, a bunch of zeroes in your debt column.)

Of course, as you know, MY coding curriculum is available to you for ONE zero… as in… zip, nada, zilch-o. Object-oriented programming, HTML and CSS, JavaScript, PHP, freelancing, Upwork and much more…

The whole shabang for nothing.

All the details on that are right cheer: http://johnmorrisonline.com/skillshare

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

Ray Edwards

I recommend John every chance I get. If every person I worked with were as committed to excellence, punctuality, value, and unquestionable integrity… the world would be a better place. Highest recommendation.

Daniel Mohlendick

On the Freelancing on Upwork course: “This is by far the best course i have watched on Skillshare!! Thank you so much.”

Thabo Motsoahae

John is one of the best instructors I have come across, I learned a lot from his online tutorials.

Bob Patterson

Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination. This ability has enabled me to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. Thank you John for for all that you do.

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 is amazing at building membership sites. He converted one of my sites over from it’s existing (hardly working) platform over to the clean and simple to use WishList membership platform. I highly recommend using John and WishList for any of your membership site needs.
