I created a new five-figure income stream and it only took me a weekend to create. Let me tell you how I got the idea, what I’m doing and how much I’m making.

How to create a business in a weekend

A lot of business ideas don’t take that long to set up. You have an idea, you make a plan and then put it into action.

That’s the idea behind this business.

It’s ebook selling.

I had a little experience creating and selling ebooks before. I decided to try my hand at it again and see how far it can take me.

Little did I know, a few months later, it would be a five-figure a year income stream I added to my bottom line.

Why write ebooks?

They’re incredibly easy to create.

You could literally combine your top 5 or so articles on a topic and make it into a book.

I’ve done this for clients before, believe it or not.

For me, I had a niche that I was pretty knowledgeable about. I already had a course around the topic but, it was a little bit of a higher price tag ($247).

Not a huge investment for an online course (I’ve seen thousand-dollar courses) but, it’s still a nice chunk of change and I can see why there’s some reluctance to invest.

So, I wrote an ebook on the topic and made it for beginners.

It was a hit!

The second book came out of a case study I set up that became a hit and is expected to reach $100K this year!
