Hi Bulldogs!





I hope every single one of you is having a great holiday season... and that you're preparing for your greatest professional successes EVER in 2010!





Before we get to today's videos and links, I want to thank everyone for their understanding when it comes to the delay in our launch of the CCNA /CCNP On-Demand Webinar service.





To make a very long story short, what started out as a *little* dental surgery in September just ballooned into - shall we say - a LOT of dental work in November and December? :)





The good news is that on the new website we're launching very soon, you'll actually see rare pictures of me smiling. :)





The really good news is that the CCNA On-Demand Webinar will go online two weeks from Monday at 12 Noon Eastern Standard Time!





Not only will you be able to watch any and all of my 20+ hour CCNA Webinar on YOUR schedule, but you'll also receive personal CCNA success coaching from yours truly, Video Practice Exams available nowhere else, and two lucky students per month will win a personal free hour of one-on-one CCNA Webinar training with me - on the subject of your choice!




All this for a price that won't bust your budget - but will bust the blocks between you and your CCNA!





in the meantime, please enjoy the free 40-minute CCNA Etherchannel Webinar that's been posted on YouTube and the Bulldog Blog - and I'll see you first thing Monday with two brand-new CCNA Video Practice Exams!





Note: Many of you watching this Webinar have asked how to get a copy of the Study Guide you see in the videos - that's my CCNA Study Package, and you can click that link to download your fully printable copy just minutes after you order!
 
So just scroll down a bit and enjoy that free CCNA Etherchannel Webinar - and I'll see you right back here on Monday with two brand-new CCNA and CCNP Video Practice Exams,  as the countdown to the most exciting year yet at TBA continues...
 
... and to the best professional year of your life!

Here's A Special Holiday Gift From The Bryant Advantage To All The Bulldogs Out There!

(Sorry, no reindeer antlers on THIS bulldog - he doesn't do comedy!)

The same 45-minute CCNA/CCNP Etherchannel Webinar that thousands attended online this past year is now available online for you to watch on YOUR schedule... and here it is!

To celebrate the launch of our new On-Demand CCNA / CCNP Webinar service (coming in very early January 2010), we're making our free live Webinars available in the same format - and the first one is our most popular Webinar ever!

Due to YouTube's 10-minute time limit on videos, we had to segment the Etherchannel Webinar into five separate videos, and you'll find all five of them below (and in order!)

Note:  Many of you watching this Webinar have asked how to get a copy of the Study Guide you see in the videos - that's my CCNA Study Package, and you can click that link or any of the banners below to download your fully printable copy just minutes after you order!

Now, on to the Webinar!  Enjoy!

And just two more things...

2010 is going to be the biggest year in the history of The Bryant Advantage.

Be ready to make it the biggest year of your career.
