I stumbled upon IBM because of my wife. I didn't know anything about internet business, though I always had a desire to go inot some kind of business for myself. What I've learned over the past month of listening daily amounts to years worth of knowledge concisely delivered in enjoyable, upbeat, inspiring podcasts. These guys aren't fakes. They have been doing this for 10 years (which is like 100 years in internet years). I have moved on to listening to other podcasts as well to supplement the knowledge they provide and to get fresh perspectives on internet business. But I am also a very satisfied subscriber to The Academy and have already seen a great deal of success and progress, again, in only a month time. Utlimately, as with any educational material, you are going to get out of what they are offering only what you put into it in terms of consistent effort. But for those who are really willing to do the work, this is the place to start, unquestionably, hand's down.
