How to validate (and make money) on an idea before you invest time or money in it

You already know 20% more about something than the average person.

People will pay you to help them close the gap from where they are to where you are.

You don’t need to be the absolute expert or guru in a field to teach others.

You just need to be a little bit ahead of others to do so, and it’s much easier than you think.

I’ve see it done over and over again by others and have done it myself.

But people don’t try because they overcomplicate the process.

You don’t need to ditch your job or invest money or time into an idea to see if it works.

In October of last year, I noticed that I had been getting a lot of people asking me various questions about LinkedIn.

At that same time I was going through a course to learn how to build digital courses because I was planning on building one about mindset.

I had only been active on LinkedIn for about 4 months at the time, but I had a lot of success and I knew I could teach others some good stuff.

I thought “who would want to learn from me if I’ve only been active for this short of an amount of time”.

But I knew a strategy where I could find out if people would pay me before I put time and money into building a group class.

In less than a few weeks I had taken money in and validated the idea.

I had 14 people sign up.

I used Zoom, Gmail, Venmo and Paypal to build a course on the fly which would eventually become my Leveraging LinkedIn course.

I had zero costs for marketing, creating and teaching the course.

If you want to learn how I did this you can watch a mini-training that I created.

Trust me, its much easier than you think and you can make a side hustle teaching about what you know.
