  1. Already working for me - still hoping to close Forbes & CNN!


    The course saved me a lot over the past 4 months as we have gotten into a few news sites at no cost. However I’m still hoping to pitch into Forbes & CNN (aka “fake news”) this year. The LinkedIn tips were useful for sure – but what really sealed the deal for me was using the structured approach given by Adriaan. The course certainly paid for itself in a short time.
