"GREAT. I loved Phyllis' energy and her patience in teaching. She definitely understands and can teach the basics of setting up a Word Press site. It was so empowering to see how easy most of the set up is and it looks so clean, organized and easy to use. It is a pleasure to learn from Phyllis and she is a wonderful, considerate, highly conscious person." - Amber DeAnn, Anger At Mom and Dad

"I had been trying to set up a web presence for a long, long time but was putting it off because I wanted to be able to be able to manage it myself and couldn't find any web people who would work with me or teach me. Then I found Phyllis Garland, who in one short session got me up and running. I was amazed and still am. I owe her huge. My site looks great and my organization is on a roll." - Marla Lowenthal,

    Phyllis, how do you do it? You enspire me! You are able to teach each one of us at our own level while you are answering all of our individual questions, helping each one of us with our computer challenges, keeping us on task with handouts for us to follow, and making Wordpress so that we can better understand it! I'm really growing with you! Can't wait to attend your nest class!! Thank you so very much.

    Really enjoyed the session today - great job Phyllis - a good mix of helping everyone but still moving forward and not getting bogged down!
    The SEO stuff was very helpful and the suggestions on the plugins that can help 'bend WP to our will'.
    It was nice to meet everyone and see and hear what they are working on.
    Look forward to the next one!
