Hire Jeremy To Help You

Help your friends/family/coworkers learn this by having Jeremy come and teach it in person!

This is a HUGE topic and you can read and read and read until you learn enough or you can have Jeremy come explain it in person. In the How to Destroy Yourself Online seminar, Jeremy explains the 6 biggest mistakes people make online and how not to be one of those people (in about 60 minutes).

This seminar is good for:

  • People who know what the Internet is.
  • People who don't know what the Internet is.
  • People who don't know what the Internet is, but want to.
  • People who don't know what the Internet is and don't want to, but probably will have to sooner or later.

Ok, to be straight, it's good for anyone who spends a lot of time online or knows people who do. Especially for students and relatives of students who grew up with the Internet, but have never been trained of the dangers.
