How to be self employed? Offer online continuing education. People in licensed jobs have to take these classes to renew their licenses.
Your online school can start from home.
You actually "work" in this work at home job. It's not a get quick rich scheme. On the other hand, since it grows as quickly as you put in the effort, your success is in your hands.
The six steps (called "hurdles" in the book) show how practical and doable the system is:
1. Targeting the profession
2. Having a teacher who's in the profession (maybe you)
3. Writing the book
4. Putting up the web site
5. Getting the approvals
6. Reaching out to the students
Twelve "refinements" are also offered, building on the basic program for at home work. Depending on the profession, you might have trouble spending even two hundred dollars to get your online continuing education school going.
Can you make mistakes doing this? Sure. The author made plenty teaching 3 professions over 7 years. His goofs are explained so you won't go there.
This story is real--the advice is from someone who's done it.
This second edition gives you illustrations and 7% more text.
