What you'll learn
  • Learn how I built a $8,000/mo business from home in 1 Year
  • Learn the exact steps I took to grow my business from $0-$8000 a month.

  • Know how you can start this business for very little money up-front - Less than $300

  • I show you the exact steps to do this in your niche
  • A willingness to learn and think outside of the box
  • A desire to create extra income for very low cost

Work from Home: In this course, you will learn how I built a $0-$8000/mo social media business from home, and the exact steps you need to create your own work from home business.

  **Disclaimer: This isn't a "passive income" course. I don't believe in totally passive income. What I'll show you does take hard work, especially in the beginning. But once it's set up and running, it can easily be managed from home easily, which is infinitely better than my previous job :)


About the course:

On January 9th of 2014, I quit my full-time job.

I was scared to death! But I simply didn't want to work in a job I hated any longer. I created a social media marketing business (from home). Less than 6 months later I exceeded my previous monthly income working from home. I've been making an increasing amount from my business each month.


In this course, I show you exactly how you can do this step-by-step to create your own online business.


I now average over $8,000 per month and it's increasing - I work from home. No office to report to from 9-5. I'll show you exactly how I did this step-by-step…No guessing on your part.


The first month of my business I made $495 from my first client.


Now that's now increased to $5,822 for August, $7,911 for September, and $9,734 in October. It averages over $8,000/month.


I reveal exactly how to create this online business for very little up-front cost (less than $300 to be exact). It doesn't take any special skills…other than a willingness to give it a shot. I show you how to do it all in this course.


I don't hold anything back, I show you everything – exactly you will need to do to get these same results. When I learn something new that adds to my income, I add it to the course - at no additional cost to you! This is a course that will continue to add more income to your business.


In addition to the Udemy 30-day money back guarantee, you have my personal guarantee that you will love what you learn and be able to apply it immediately... whether you simply want to make extra money each month or you are stuck in a job you hate and need to find something to replace your income. This is where I was.


What I can't do in this course:


I can't guarantee your earnings – again, this business does take work on your part. But I've found that it is infinitely better than working 9-5 in an office.

I don't teach social media marketing specifically. There are many courses that teach social media. I can show you how to take a marketable skill that businesses want (like social media marketing, graphic design, website design, YouTube marketing) and create a business from home. I show you many options for services you can offer to businesses that you can build a business that businesses are already paying for. Even if you don't have experience in these fields.

If you want a business that can be created and run from home that can replace your job income, this is it.
