My Unsexy Income Streams Are Low-Key Easy to Recreate
Multiple income streams is the greatest life hack.
I’m an ex-banker.
Too much risk turns me into a toddler that can’t sleep. I just can’t do it. I need diversification in everything I do in case the world doesn’t work in my favor.
I’m not going to lie.
It takes time to become a multiple income stream badass. But it’s possible with a touch of creativity and a good dose of consistency.
The income stream the biggest bloggers swear by
Everyone is a content creator. Some just haven’t realized it yet — Pomp
We all have skills.
You already use them to earn a living, so you’re not special. Many people sell their skills once to an employer. The income stream I found by accident is online courses. It didn’t start that way.
One day at work I got asked to share my knowledge of LinkedIn. I did it. Then a reader from LinkedIn emailed me and said “can you coach me?”
I was terrified so I told him a stupidly high price.
He said yes. Crap.
That one student, later, became thousands of students.
Everyone can teach a skill. Platforms such as Skillshare, Teachable, and Udemy let you do it.
There’s one decision you’ve got to make
- Low-priced courses to thousands of people
- High-priced courses to a small number of people
Contrary to what most think, both models work.
One of the biggest bloggers on the internet, Benjamin Hardy, swears by online courses as a key income stream. Nicolas Cole does too. So does Ayodeji Awosika. So does Niharikaa Sodhi. So does Zdravko Cvijetic.
So does anyone who knows their stuff.
Why can’t you teach a skill?
