Sell Your Ideas Online For Dummies
OK… let’s be real here. None of us are dummies! In fact, I’d go as far as saying that we are all very competent in our own unique ways. For some reason, society has attempted to program us that if we don’t finish school and get that piece of paper that confirms we passed a specific course work, that we’re doomed to a life of mediocracy and failures.
I like to think that we all have some level of competency. Maybe you’re a stay at home mom of 5 children and you know how to get rid of that post-birth baby fat or you have a secret strategy for keeping a clean home. Perhaps you’re an artist with a unique method for blending paint colours for creating the perfect sunsets.
I’m sure there are people who are living in the poor house but always have the time & fund for a hobby such as fishing. And I bet they are experts at surviving in the wild. The survival niche is massive if you didn’t know. The possibilities are endless and by simply recognizing your talents & passions, it is achievable to sell your ideas online. No more being a starving artist or broke hobbyist. I know it sounds cliché however you can turn your passions and hobbies into a fun & profitable revenue stream.
5 Questions To Ask Yourself Before Committing To This Journey:

- What are some of my interest that I would have so much fun learning more about?
