WHAT IS MTC?
MyTrainingCenter.com (MTC) is MY website containing a vast amount of training in written format (1,200+ articles I wrote), audio recordings (I did) and video tutorials (I made), along with 100’s of recommended resources, dozens of checklists, special reports, interviews and whatever else I could stuff inside these walls for your learning benefit.
My intent? To share with you my knowledge, skill sets, experience and talents in the areas of website design, graphic design, self-publishing, digital marketing, eMail marketing, eCommerce, social media, audio recording/editing, video recording/editing/marketing, essential computer skills, business checklists, recommended resources, and so much more so you can take whatever idea(s) you have inside you to semi- or complete fruition either on your own or with the help of someone you can better monitor because you’ve been shown how these get done.
WHY DID I BUILD MTC?
Over the years, I saw my clients, friends and colleagues lose ground, time and money, struggling with these very things. Whether they hired someone who wound up screwing them out of money, leaving projects unfinished or they just couldn’t seem to start or finish a project on their own because they lacked the skills to do so.
Well, I thought it would be a good idea if I could build a training website (with my web design skills) for them that stored what I knew about those topics (and more) in written, audio and video tutorial format. From that idea, MyTrainingCenter.com was born. Ten years later, I’m still working on this website. It’s certainly been a labor of love and … A LOT of labor! Try building a website like this and writing 15+ books. It ain’t easy, that’s for sure.
MY SELF-HELP/SELF-PUBLISHED BOOKS
So, what inspired all this? Well, back in 1996 or so, I started building websites for people, picked up how to install shopping carts pretty quickly and so much more. It was around 1999 when I started writing my first book, B.S. THE BOOK: Your How-To Guide On Cutting Through B.S. In Your Life by Bart Smith.
I mention (my writing books) because I want you to get a sense of the depth of training you’ll find inside MTC. Not only did I write these books, I designed their covers, I laid out the interior pages for all the books (e.g., some black/white; some full-color on the inside), I took my own photographs (of food) for my cookbook, I recorded several of these books for sale, I made video book trailers to promote them, I built websites for some of them, I find and book my own interviews to promote them … I could go on!
So, just imagine, all that activity, skills and knowledge required to accomplish all that and more, has been stuffed inside MTC for your learning. What’s that mean to you? No longer should you struggle wondering how you’ll get a certain task accomplished. Just refer to MTC for what you might want to learn. There’s so much here.
CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
What? Cookies? Chocolate chip cookies? Yep! Another passion of mine (that started when I was in college) that I’m very serious about and plan to take to the market commercially very soon, are my world famous chocolate chip cookies (BartsCookies.com). Literally, to die-for and overly orgasmic, my chocolate chip cookies help break the ice at networking events I attend, help build wonderful bonds of awesome customer service, and whet the addictive appetite of chocolate chip cookie lovers everywhere.
You see, any business owner, even a baker (like me) could use much of what’s taught inside MTC. Whether it’s in the areas of web design, online/offline marketing, social media, a checklist, or valuable recommended resource, … you name it! I personally plan on using much of what’s taught inside MTC to promote my cookies one day very soon. First, I have to decide where and how I’ll take them to market. While I wasn’t born to be a baker, I am more of a marketer/promoter. So, I’ll have to find the right company to align with who will bake my cookies for me, while I travel the world promoting them, right?
Well, another story for another day quite soon for sure. Right now, you could check out iLoveBartsCookies.com and consume over 300+ testimonials and product reviews of my cookies to know I’m not kidding when I say these are the world’s best chocolate chip cookies ever!
