Perhaps you are one of those people who has a great deal of knowledge to impart, and the teaching skills to convey that knowledge to people hungry to learn. Just because you don’t have a gig as a teacher doesn’t mean there isn’t a way to enlighten others, and make a few bucks at the same time. You might want to think about setting up a telephone-based course.
Take Alex Jamieson. As a vegan health and cooking guru, as well as the author of several books, including Vegan Cooking for Dummies, she has more than her share of vegan wisdom to share. She certainly enlightened us when she was a guest on our podcast last year. Alex’s 8-week course, Red Hot Hearts, is geared specifically toward women who are worried about heart disease. That is a potentially huge audience, since, other than vegans, who isn’t worried about the country’s #1 killer?
Intrigued to start your own tele-activist community? Since your course can be conducted over the telephone, aside from conference call capability, no great technical expertise is needed. You will need to work out some publicity for your course, and price it at a level that will draw a crowd. And you probably want to prepare some materials that can be emailed to participants, or even set them up on a private website. After that, just get squawking.
