As well as the prospect of spending hundreds of dollars a month on treatment for the foreseeable future. That's when she knew how to get more serious and strategic about making money outside of her day job, since pretty had ongoing health issues getting a part time. Job was an option. To control the hours and environment and be able to work from
or not work at all, depending on how she was feeling that day. So at first, she started promoting a freelance services to start ups in small businesses. She also developed a blogging planner for authors that she sought on her blog as a form of passive income, but the freelance assignments took a lot of time and the blogging planter was priced low, so she decided to develop a premium productivity course for female entrepreneurs in charge, a hundred twenty nine dollars for it. That course build. On Ba helps people master workload. A nation and automated systems. Many already knew how to growing market an online business through content marketing. So it made sense to teach that she did research and or Facebook groups and determine that weapon were confused by was the automation apps themselves, so she structured- and eyes the course around out specific trainings Instead of organizing the information by topic or function since she had limited times a host, of course on a platform called teachable rather than creating a separate site or building a membership feature into Wordpress, She decided on her initial launch price based on a type of content, which was a mix of video and pdf,
and where her audience was out in their business. Most of them are still get Started and not able to make large investments she offered a self study option any I've community version. She also ran a giveaway with a bunch of different productivity resources for her audience, including a spot in a future course she ran. I give way right before her lunch and people need to test for her email list in order to enter. So that's how she generated a lot of leads right before going live, in our initial launch ten people enrolled in the course and over time, a few more people continue to joint each month. She's also added live coaching cause and raise the price The self study version is now a hundred and seventy nine dollars and a community plan with a facebook group and live training is a hundred. Ninety seven dollars Britney's first attempt at marking the course brought in about three thousand dollars. Another done. It can continue to earn passive income whenever someone purchases it between her course and brilliant services. Sharon's about two thousand twenty five hundred dollars a month on the side, depending on how she's feeling and how much is able to work.
It is now looking into ways to revamp services there more streamlined, she's, also launching spin off to her original course in that course you mention five main ways. Entrepreneurs can streamlined systems and then she dove deep into one of them. She now plans to create products or on each of the other four methods. She does this one. Bending eight to ten hours a week on her business. She can't put too much more time and because of her house, but she makes more than enough to cover her mouth about each month and has also gradually paying the larger ones. From that initial diagnosis, she says: he's happy with the slow growth, this man, makes a real difference in her life. At some point, you hope to have more strength to put into the hustle, but for now it still helping her a lot sometimes say that no one cares about your well being as much as you do like.
