Ways to make money — Teach an online course!

Teaching an online course is a solid way to generate passive income. All you need to do is put together a video walkthrough explaining a subject that you’re familiar with and then host it on your own personal website.


Although it takes some effort up front, if you manage to design a popular high-value video tutorial series, you could be making money on a regular basis as people continue to enrol in your courses.

To start creating your first online course, brainstorm a topic that you know well enough to teach someone how to do from scratch. This can be literally anything – music production, social media marketing, web development – you name it.

Next, you’ll want to grab a screencasting app like Screenflow to record your screen and voice while you walk your viewers through your tutorial. Screenflow also comes with a built-in video editing suite, allowing you to shoot and cut your videos all on the same platform.

Why Teach an Online Course?

  • With an online course, you can literally set it and forget it. Take an afternoon to build an online course and you could be reaping the benefits for weeks.
  • You already have the knowledge, you just need to share it. Focus on teaching something that you’re already an expert at and the rest will come naturally, whether it’s building iOS apps, creating monthly budgets, or running Facebook ad campaigns.
  • Teaching someone a new skill is its own reward. While there’s definitely money to be made in teaching online courses, helping other people is always a satisfying experience unto itself.

Thinking about sharing your skills with the world? Here are some inspirational TED Talks and podcasts to get your brain moving:

Make Money: Resell Thrift Store Finds

Who doesnt love shopping and a great deal?! Not me thats for sure! We love going out and getting a steal on used items! Purchasing items from a  thrift store, or even from a yard sale, and then re selling it is an awesome way to make extra money. We use shopify to sell all our goodies right ONLINE!

I love it so much! There are several ways to sell these items: face to face, online community groups, or creating an online boutique store. It all depends on you and what you think is going to work best. Regardless of which way you decide, you are going to need to promote it on social media like crazy.

You will want to have really cool stuff – stuff that people don’t usually have or find easy. Think about things that are rare, but can make you money. Do some research before you just go out and buy a bunch of things hoping it will sell.

Here’s quick facts about why you should sell your thift store finds:

  • Put your shopping addiction to work. Let’s face it, you’d be combing through thrift store racks anyway, so you might as well make some money while you do it.
  • The margins are huge. That $2.00 Radioshack ball cap you found over the weekend? It’s now a $40.00 vintage vaporwave strapback.
  • You aren’t just selling products, you’re selling something unique. Nowhere else on the Web will people be able to find the collections that you’ve put together.

Make sure to set up your store online using shopify!
