Special Writer's Workshop Offered

15 Minute Mondays

October 18, 2014

8 am to Noon

Amarillo Senior Citizens Center
1217 S. Tyler


As a computer programmer for over twenty years, Tracy Thomason created websites for businesses ranging from small mom & pop shops to international corporations. But websites weren't his real job. They were just tools for business.

Like you, he had other things he needed to do and didn't want to spend all of his time as "the web guy." He needed to get his website work done quickly so he could get back to his primary business.

This led him to create the 15 Minute Mondays system.

Since turning this page in his own life, he finds managing his websites (currently over 20) to be much less of a burden. So much so, in fact, that it's actually become fun again — which led him to begin teaching his process to others.

"I am excited to have the opportunity to speak to my fellow PPW members about a topic that is near and dear to my heart: websites for authors and small businesses. We'll hit the ground running to jump start your author or small business website. I promise you that we're going to have some fun and cover a lot of information."

Now you may be wondering what you'll get out of the event. Let's take a minute to answer a few common questions:
