I’ve Been Coding Forever and Still Suck. What Do I Do?
Will I ever get this coding thing figure out?
Will I ever get this coding thing figure out?
Got this from Levi: “I appreciate the blunt honesty of your emails. One of the reasons why I’ve been so successful at anything I put my mind to is because I don’t waste my time trying to find the easiest or cheapest path there. I know that if I want to get good at something quickly, I need to put in the long hard hours as well as some dollar. It’s been a year now since I’ve started coding. I’ve probably spent well around 400 or so dollars on learning resources alone. I’ve had a Lynda subscription for about 5
That’s the legend, anyway. My little brother works for this company that provides consulting and migration services for a software called Tririga. Basically, what it does is make it easy for large companies to manage all of their real estate… lease, payments, all that. So, take a company like CVS that has 9,600 stores. That’s a lot of lease contracts, payments, etc. This software does it for them. So, I asked him the other day who invented Tririga. And, according to the legend… It was a group of mobsters in Las Vegas. Apparently, they owned a bunch of casinos and
Well, this escalated quickly…
I walked away from it all because of this one haunting thought. Sound familiar?
He tests every new developer for this. Don’t have it and you’re gone…
Business take shortcuts. This is how to use that to your advantage to get hired…
She’s about to throw it all away for him…
This guy seems to thinks your genetics are all that matter…
When I first started teaching my little brother to code… He was a timid little fraidy cat. (And, not the cute “supermodel in a cat costume” kind, either. Honestly, his “shy little kitty cat” routine was more of the “Michael Moore in a tube top” kind. Gross and a bit disturbing. Just sayin’.) Always worried he was getting this or that wrong. Having me check everything he did. And, every time I’d push him to write something HIS way… he’d say, “I’ll try”. Which made me madder than a Hillary Clinton supporter on election day. Finally, one day, I went
The other day, I told you my mummy’s story. Got lots of reaction to that. Including my mom. Here’s what she said: “So did you put a recording device in my head and record all my thoughts and feelings because I couldn’t have explained it any better. In fact I think you did it better than I could have. And yes I love what I do now. I save lives wether it be a homeless dog or a horse that no one else can handle. Training horses and dogs are my life now and I love it.” No mother… I’m not
75 SEO and website clients now. My income went from sub zero to over 6K just last month. Tracking 10K for next month. Seriously, you changed my life.
By the way, just hit 95K for the year. I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve taught me. You’ve changed my life. Thank you!
I started this 3 days ago, following John’s suggestions, and I gained the Upwork Rising Talent badge in less than 2 days. I have a call with my first potential client tomorrow. Thanks, John!
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.
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).
