  • Watch the assigned videos
  • Take the quiz

In the live class on Friday, you'll get to ask questions, and Alicia will point out all her PEBCAKs ("Problem Exists Between Chair and Keyboard", all the traps people tend to fall into). Then she'll give you the assignments for you to do over the next week.


If you can't make the scheduled live meeting, don't worry! It will be recorded, and there's a Q&A forum where you can always get your questions answered...even after the class is over.


You'll have lifetime access to the materials so that you can go back and watch the recordings to your heart's content. The Q&A Forum will also always be there for you to ask questions down the road when new issues pop up!
