“OMG what a great workshop. I am NOT at all tech savvy. Plus I arrived late due to unexpected circumstances. Phyllis was a patient and thorough teacher. I walked away ready to complete and launch my website. She had great tips and hands on, LIVE experience.  I look forward to using this information to touch the world with the services I have to share.” – Maurine Xavier

“This workshop is a great way to learn about WordPress. Phyllis is a very good instructor and certainly knows her material. I learned many valuable tools I can apply to my website.” – Laura Erkeneff,

"I can't believe it! I learned enough in one day to get my website started!! Great teacher!" – Lelana Crayne

"Phyllis Garland’s 'Learn WordPress in a Day' class was excellent.  I am not a technologically savvy person, but I came away from the class feeling that I could do it – start creating posts and pages for my website.  Phyllis took the intimidation and mystery out of setting up my own website and getting it optimized for Google and the search engines.  Plus, she was extremely generous with her help and time, making sure we all left with our questions answered.  I would, without hesitation, highly recommend this class to any beginner who wants to learn WordPress and be up and running quickly.  Thanks again!" – Serena L.,

"Phyllis Garland's teaching demeanor is excellent as she interactively surveys the needs of the group to her instructional delivery! In particular Phyllis made sure to encourage us to email her with our continuing questions as we move forward in our WordPress practice." – Susan Kaineg

"The workshop was fantastic! I walked into the class not knowing a thing about WordPress or setting up a website. I left not only knowing how to set up a site, but how to begin manipulating content and website security. Phyllis stands behind her teaching by allowing continued email contact beyond the class. It was a truly valuable day." –  Cathy Ritter

"Excellent! I would give it 10 Stars, but I can only give it a 5! If you're wanting to learn WordPress this is the class for you! Phyllis was an excellent instructor! I learned a lot and came away feeling that I can actually do something in WordPress."  – Jan Brown, Jan's Pet Sit

"Phyllis did a wonderful job at demystifying Word Press. She also gave us great SEO tips and tricks. I promise to update my blog more than once a year!"- Cynthia Beck, Cynthia Beck-Hypnotherapist

"Wordpress in a Day" provided me with huge benefit. Phyllis somehow managed to respond to individual needs, while at the same time, delivering a thorough overveiw of what it takes to build a website. I knew a bit about WordPress before, but feel extremely confident AFTER this very well organized and thoughtfully delivered training. Highly recommended." – Robin Fletcher, Sell Like a Goddess

"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

“You don’t know where to start? Phyllis can help! To make things much easier for you, it is not a bad idea to talk to her about converting your site into wordpress platform site. It will make your life so much easier.” – Hiromi Motojima,
