Take It From Lindsay…
I've taken several of Bud's webinars over the years and look forward to attending more. His webinars are clear and he teaches you exactly what you need to know in order to get up and running with WordPress.
Every time I have a question, it seems uncanny how a few moments later he addresses it even before I pose it. He knows the material extremely well, but maintains an excellent sense for how to approach each topic with people new to the subject matter.
