Himalayan Blogging Workshop

Blogging can be great business – or great for your business – but few people know how to do it right.

Those who do achieve a lot – they promote causes, build offline businesses (like this  writing retreat), earn passive incomes and much more. They build a strong web presence, thanks to blogging.

Sumit Bansal is a great example. He quit his job at IBM, and now earns 10X his last salary. A full-time blogger, Sumit runs TrumpExcel.com. Sumit’s blog gets one Million page-views every month. 

He has been recognized by Microsoft as a Most Valuable Professional (MVP). His blog was also featured as one of the ’50 Emerging Startups to Watch’ by The CEO Magazine. 

Sumit is a great teacher and he leads this workshop on Blogging. This will be blogging workshop #5.
