Learning is easier if you are given the right tools and instruction. In every one of my courses I take my students step-by-step through the tools and knowledge they need to accomplish their goals.

Whether I am teaching How to Publishing Kindle eBooks, How to Learn Excel, or How to Create Killer Content for the Web I always share an inside view of my knowledge about the subject. You get access to all of my secrets.

For over 10 years I have studied strategies to create passive income and how to use passive income to vastly improve the quality of your life.

I have tested many different strategies from investing in rental real estate to building niche websites about my hobbies to publishing Kindle eBooks. I have studied what works and what doesn't work, and I have narrowed my research down to the strategies that work the best for creating financial freedom and an improved quality of life.

Each of my courses is designed to share my hard-earned secrets with you. 

I hold nothing back. I won't bore you with all of the strategies that didn't work. I'll get right into the exact steps that I have taken to be successful so that you have the opportunity to replicate them.

Of course, it's no secret that one of my favorite ways to generate truly passive income is through publishing Kindle eBooks. I have published over 100 eBooks and published five of those in print. Many of my books have been bestsellers including my own pottery book The Despicable Five.

Once I developed my Kindle publishing system, learned some formatting secrets, and learned how to use some simple SEO skills, publishing eBooks became remarkably simple.

Even hiring writers, which would seem scary at first, is really easy and even fun when you follow my system. 

Using my system, you can publish one or two books and then roll the profits from them into hiring people to write more books for you, so you aren't taking any money out of your pocket.

It starts out as a little passive income snowball and as you add the profits back into the snowball it grows and grows until you are seeing a surprising and exciting amount of passive income.

I retired in 2014 thanks to my eBook publishing success. Now, I'm using my spare time to find the best ways to create passive income. As I find great ways to make money from home I'm more than happy to share what I learn with you.

You'll notice that my new favorite way to create passive income is teaching courses on Udemy. Check out my Udemy Course Creation course to see why I love it so much!

I am here to guide you on your way to success. You can contact me at any step of the way for assistance, even if you're unsure whether my course is the perfect fit for you. Let me know your concerns and I'll point you in the right direction, even if it's to someone else's course.

I'm always happy to help.

Are you ready to take your skills to the next level? It all starts with knowledge, and my courses make that part easy for you.
