Doug’s Success Story with OSTraining

students testimonial

When you give personalized, hand-holding mentoring and support, you get to know some of your students really well. I remember when Doug Beale came to OSTraining in 2012 and I started helping him with his first sites. Anyone could have seen that Doug was getting the most out of our training because he was working hard to master his web design skills.

When Doug contacted me in late 2015 to proudly tell me that thanks to our training, he was now able to live from the revenue his online businesses generate, I felt so proud of him. He literally came to us not knowing the first thing about web design and now he was proof that one can change careers in life and become a successful web entrepreneur.

We felt Doug’s story is so transformational, that we created this infographic to help tell his story so that others can also become inspired by him.

Great job Doug and OSTraining


@kerrykriger thanks!

Congrats, Doug…kudos for creating your own solution instead of waiting for someone else’s creation to have a posted job opening. Hopefully you’ll create your own tuts or content aimed at guys/gals w/families to support and are suddenly in a job crisis. Your voice will resonate with that audience, so never assume that someone else has already shared what you would share.

I’ll have to say the thought has crossed my mind, but did think it’s all been said before. I probably don’t have to tell you how much BS I had to filter through researching “make money online”. Realizing that traffic is a commodity was perhaps the most important aha moment of my life.


Well done Doug ! Keep it up !

Douglas Beale

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
