A little while ago I got an email from an old client, updating me on her progress. She added “I don’t know if I told you, but I also made over £1400 from a YouTube video I made on ‘How To Iron A Shirt’!”
Even if you don’t think you know something that would make a great training course for business people, I bet you know how to do something that other people would like to know how to do. Not everyone has a great set of parents who teach them stuff, sadly.
My mum loved me, but had a lot of mental illness issues over the years and didn’t really have a good grasp of the practicalities. Just the other day, I found out the sliding knob on a toaster does not change the time your toast stayed down, but the heat that was applied to your toast. How did I get to this age without knowing that?!!
There’s a guy in the USA with a channel called something like ‘Ask Your Dad’ and he started out by making little videos showing his daughter how to do all sorts of basic things around the house. Now he answers questions from young people all over the world, about all kinds of topics. He must be making hundreds of thousands per month by now.
There is a little trick or two to making sure your videos get shown high on YouTube (and get picked up by the Google search engine too) and I may share those in my next post if you are interested. Do let me know?
While I love getting messages like the one above, I’d also love to hear your stories of ‘things you never knew you didn’t know’ in the comments below!
