Instructor: Brad Hussey

Off Hey everybody. Welcome to the first lecture of Boost Your Income with Bootstrap to WordPress.

I’m your instructor Brad Hussey. Hang on tight. All right, hey everybody. First of all I want to welcome you to the course and thank you so much for signing up. I truly appreciate it. Let me tell you why you made the right decision for choosing me and this course, Boost your Income with Bootstrap to WordPress.

I’ve spent a whole block of time, hours and hours and hours, putting this course together. And I’ve spent even more hours learning these skills throughout my career, so that I could put it together in this course for you. The reason why I want to teach you this is because, not only is it just a really fun, cool skill to learn. Learning to code or learning how to create a website and, you know, and develop a WordPress website. Sure, that’s great. But, just learning how to code a website in Bootstrap and how to code a WordPress website, standalone those are just skills. They’re just stand alone. There’s nothing really important about that. What’s really special about those skills when you put them together and then when you take them in this course is you can significantly increase you income. You can improve your life by knowing how to do what I’m about to teach you in this course.

Why are you wondering that? Well whether you’re a freelance designer, an entrepreneur, an employee for a company, code hobbyist or just looking for a new career, this course gives you an immensely valuable skill. That will enable you to either make money on the side. So that you can save up for that Hawaiian vacation that you’ve been wanting. Help pay off your debt, your car, your mortgage or simply just to have some bonus cash laying around or to create a full time income.

WordPress developers, they have options. Menu developers, they make a generous living, creating custom WordPress themes and selling them on websites like Theme Forest. Freelance designers and developers can also take on WordPress projects and then make an extra one to five thousand a month, that’s pretty awesome. So yes, we’re going to learn how to code a website, a responsive website in boot strap and we’re going to make it dynamic with the content management system using WordPress and that’s awesome.

But where the goods really come into play is that when you’re done this course, you can make your money back tenfold in a single project. You could create a career out of this. You can improve your current career. You can get a raise at your job, or you can get a better job.

You can stop waiting tables if you’re actor, and you can take on side jobs as a web developer, and make way more money than you would ever make serving espressos or pizza. So what I’m trying to say here is you made the right decision, because, one, you’re learning a really neat skill.

Bootstrap and WordPress, web development, that’s awesome. But, two. You’re going to have a valuable skill that you will have with you forever, as long as you keep it up to date I suppose, but you could take that and change your life. It’s changed my life. And, I wanna share that with you in the form of a really well structured course. So I hope I live up to my excitement. Obviously you can do what you wish with the course.

You can take the course and leave a review and say great, that was fun brushing up on my bootstrap skills. Or you can take it and run and significantly improve your quality of life, your income, or just have a lot of fun. So, yeah, I really hope you love this course.

I’ve designed it in a way that you will love it, and if you don’t, if it doesn’t live up to your expectations, or my excitement, then, well, you have 30 days here to just get your money back. So there really is no risk. I’m excited to teach you.

Let’s jump in.

Create a full-time income

WordPress developers have options. Many developers make a generous living off of creating custom WordPress themes and selling them on websites like ThemeForest. Freelance designers and developers can also take on WordPress projects and make an extra $1,000 – $5,000+ per month.

Who Should Take This Course?

Graphic & Web Designers

Graphic designers are extremely talented, but ask them to code their designs and they’ll freeze up! This leaves them with no other choice but to hire a web developer. Any professional graphic designers knows web developers can be expensive.

If you’re a designer, learning to code your own WordPress websites can change your business entirely! Now, not only are you a great designer, but you’re a skillful developer, too! This puts you in a position tomake an extra $1,000 – $5,000 per project.


Entrepreneurs have big dreams, and in many cases, shoestring budgets. In order to survive in the cut-throat world of the Startup company, it’s a necessity to have a world-class website. However, world-class websites come with a large price tag.

If you can learn how to build a high-quality startup website by yourself, then you’ve just saved yourself a lot of cash, tens of thousands of dollars in many cases.

Employees of a company

Any company knows the education & training of their employees is key to a thriving team.

Depending on the type of company you work for, if you understand how to code, and can develop CMS driven websites, that gives you negotiating power for a better position, or a higher salary.

Code Hobbyists

It’s fun to learn challenging new skills. Code hobbyists can add dynamic websites to their arsenal of tools to play with — you can even sell WordPress themes and plugins for cash! The possibilities are truly endless.

People Looking for a New Career

Are you out of work? Looking for a more rewarding job? Desire a career that can allow you to work almost anywhere in the world? Becoming a Web Developer might be the answer for you.

Web developers are paid well, anywhere from $33,000 to more than $105,000 per year. They get to work at amazing companies that are changing the world, or they enjoy the ability to start their own companies, become location-independent and work from home, from coffee shops, in an airplane, on the beach, or wherever they want!

Final Project Features

Throughout this entire course, you work towards building an incredibly beautiful, 100% custom website using the Bootstrap framework. The coolest part? The Bootstrap website doesn’t look anything like the Bootstrap websites you see all over the Internet. It’s a highly customized design, and the type of website layout I use when I build custom WordPress websites for my real-life clients.

Student Reviews

Very well done! Brad is a very good and funny teacher. Just one thing: some time too much fast. But at the end a special course to reccomend and support!
Captain Krik

It’s alittle out of date… But that can kind of be a blessing in disguise, as you get to trouble-shoot the problems that arise. This then gives you more experience and possibly extra opportunities to learn more. Brad’s way of teaching is kinda just like following a text-book. But the little bits of knowledge he throws in every now and then, combined with his humour make the course a fun way to learn important info. I like it, but I can definitely see some hard times for new enrollees who have no patience for the problems with incompatibility that arise fairly often. However nothings new and the QA board will usually have the answer you need, and also code college replies pretty quickly to any questions. ^^)
Ben Young

I actually finished this course almost a year ago but since then I’ve designed and developed multiple bespoke WordPress sites which hardly any difficulty and it’s all thanks to Brad! Can’t rate him enough!
