*UPDATE* I first launched this course in January 2013 and it was my 2nd course on Udemy. In 10 short months I published nearly 2 dozen more and created a steady passive income stream. This course will help you shift your mindset and give you simple tools you can use to get started too. ~Montina
This course was designed to help people learn how to take an idea and turn it into a profit utilizing an online teaching platform. The course on how to generate passive income istaught using visual and auditory learning styles and a worksheet is included for students to refer to the materials and take notes. The course will take 1-2 hours to complete and is beneficial to anyone that has a passion or desire to teach others and make a profit from it. The Instructor contact information is included in the course materials.
I recently received a 1 star review from a student "Everything you learn in the course can be found on the Udemy website. The instructor tells you to write something down and keeps the video going for 1 minute to "buy her time"... The first 30% of the course tells you the only thing - that you can do it - teach online. I'm asking for a refund for this course ;-(" by Michaela Pacesova
My response: Thank you Michaela for enrolling in the course. The best part of Udemy is that you do get a 30 day money back guarantee This course was designed to help people learn how to take an idea and turn it into a profit utilizing an online teaching platform. Everything we can find in most paid courses and otherwise can be found simply by a Google search. The purpose of this course is not to teach a student how to use Udemy. It is how to teach the student how to create a passive income stream using an online teaching platform which I have successfully done on Udemy and You Tube. It's turning an idea into profit which some people simply are unable to do. As far as " The instructor tells you to write something down and keeps the video going for 1 minute to "buy her time" this time is reflection time because most people do have barriers and do not understand how easy it is to make a passive income stream online. Also, we spend more than 25% of the time in this course teaching an understanding of what passive income streams are. Possibly you don't need the "The first 30% of the course tells you the only thing - that you can do it - teach online. " Much of the audience that is taking this course does and belief is extremely important in our lives and foundational for our success. May God bless you and I thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve you. ~Montina
Update from Michaela:
Dear Montina, I just found your message here - Udemy should change that notifications for messages, because they are not visible on the main page ;-) I totally understand your points and I should have read the about page more carefully. You're absolutely right. I would like to change that review for you, but I think I'm not subscribed to the course anymore, I cannot find it on my completed courses site. Do you know if there is a way I can change the review. Btw - since I enrolled in your course, I watched more than 40 courses on Udemy, and yours was really good compared to some others. I think I acted too quickly giving you 1 star review and wasn't thinking much about it. Again, I apologize for that and I will do my best to make it up to you.
Have a great day!

|Procrastination is a nasty little sucker! It causes us to work on tasks that don't produce an income, that are "easy" and spend time talking about what we need to do. It is an inward spiritual root that we deserve to be last or held back. It's deeply rooted and directly related to a spirit of rejection. It comes from a fear that we don't deserve success. Develop new habits - monthly. By the way, this is one nasty little monster that I have had to deal with in my life and one that I conquer - DAILY.|
