Academic Lesson - APA Style Guide

Let me tell you something about giving up. Our first batch of students didn’t even learn through the site as you are. It was through the old mail methods. No one could easily trust we will send them lessons every day via email after they pay. I didn’t give up I found a better way and build my first website. Its wasn’t that appealing but it was an improvement and I started seeing change. My work even became easier since I did not have to send emails lessons any more.

Students had to log in and start learning all I had to do is check the assignment. This is like the fifth version of the first website seven years ago which did not even have a blog. This one has a even jobs board, a till number automatic payments and a blogging platform for thousands of our users and much more features. If I had given up from my first attempt (since it wasn’t what I expected), you couldn’t have learnt to make your first dollar online as I hope you will from this course. We are still growing and probably one day this will be run by an artificial intelligence but who knows. All am trying to say is don’t give up keep learning keep practising. It takes over ten years or more to become an overnight success.

APA style
