For anyone who needs to hear this today to keep motivation up- when I started my side gig, I didn’t know if it would ever take off. Wasn’t sure if digital courses are a thing. Wasn’t sure if it can truly be passive. And now, while I was interviewing for a job, an order popped into my inbox. Not the first time, not the last time, but the frequency is steadily increasing. Paid, fulfilled on spot. Of course you have to do the work, but the days when you feel like giving up, remember why you started

This is amazing!! Congrats and thanks for the encouragement!

Out of curiosity, what course did you create and on what platform do you market it if I can ask?

like

Of course, happy to share. A job search course. I built on Thinkific.

How exciting! If you don't mind me asking, what type of digital courses do you offer? I'm thinking of jumping on that bandwagon but I'm not sure where to begin.

I do a job search course. But people are soo creative and I constantly get inspired by the niches like dog photography or art lessons planning for art teachers etc. What feels like the natural place to begin?

I love this. Thank you for sharing.

Feeling this every day, in a similar space (E-Learning), do you market your platform completely yourself or are you on platforms such as Udemy?

That's pretty awesome OP, glad to see content like this!

Can I ask what type of tasks you're being contracted for? I'm currently working in risk management and have been involved in data science tasks as well.

Thanks, that's great advice.

One of the reasons I actually thought about a part-time job was because one of my friends keeps coming back to me for advice on queries, visuals and coding. And while his financial institution hires contractors, they are all required to work full-time, which I can't comply with ( technically I could, but they have core hours and so does my job). I didn't really think I could spin that into offering courses since there's already so many platforms out there that offer the actual skills I have (datacamp comes to mind).

Aside from that, I think I do fairly well with personal finances but probably not up to par with what others might have to offer. I though about including a quantitative spin to it, but not sure there's a market for that.

The next time someone says “the reason partners make so much is because they take on all the risk”, we can dispute them and use corona as an example.
