Through working on these sites, he learned more about WordPress and blogs that were making millions of dollars online.
- He decided to create his own blog and discovered Elegant themes. From there, he continued to read online articles and watch YouTube videos to learn more. Then, he discovered that he was getting pretty good at building websites and that he could do this for a living.
