About Us


Every course is home study which means no travelling to classes. Most training leads to you having your own small business. Course durations are usually 6 to 12 months and you can work as fast or as slow as suits your lifestyle…

If you love the English language; if “speelling misteaks” jump off the page at you; if you can recognise a clumsy sentence construction – and you know how to fix it; if you know the difference between there/their/they’re, and your/you’re – you could get paid for doing proofreader and editor jobs at home. Your clients will likely be book and/or magazine publishers, website managers, people in businesses which produce lots of documents.

We show you how to do everything, including setting up your own business which you operate at home. More Info

This training course shows you how to use the skills and experiences you have accumulated during your lifetime – to become a paid professional Life Coach. More Info
In the past, getting a book published was an expensive and complex process. Not now. Today, fiction writers have the opportunity to self-publish on Amazon. We show you how.

The digital age has produced a range of new jobs for digital camera users. But very few camera users know how to turn photos or videos into income-earners. We know how, and we can teach you the steps!
