I need to get my vehicle fixed. The mechanic I know, he is skilled enough to fix my problem, but I don’t trust him to deliver on those skills. So I will take business somewhere else. He is a nice guy and all, but I have work to do… There is respect for the mechanic, but not trust. Trust and credibility is a function of your integrity and your way of doing business. Respect and authority is a function of your skills. As a creative entrepreneur, I need both. I need you to respect my skills to solve your...Read More
If there is any online business to start, it is online teaching. This business is based on just one of the six most lucrative online business models. You can learn more about the best online business ideas by clicking the link. Online teaching can take many forms: You can write a guide or a how-to guide on something you are well versed in (like the Find Your Business action plan, or the dairy farming guide etc) You can start a membership site (like the ProHobbyist Membership) You can record videos and become an instructor on sites like Udemy – and make honest money online that way… There are many other ways you can sell information such as writing ebooks for the Amazon kindle store, using video-on-demand services like that of Vimeo’s, or like this teacher in South Korea who earned more than 4 Million US dollars teaching tuition online (I am not kidding, check this story out here) The above are just a quick sampling of what’s possible. But there is a bigger question. People ask this when I suggest they create an online course. The question is: “Why would someone buy from me?” This is a powerful question. A good question, especially for those who are trying to start an online business based around their hobbies, passions and interests. Two Parts And there are two parts to this question.

Why SJCAM? Yes I know, SJCAM is a weird name for an action camera. Two of the previous models of SJCAM, the SJCAM 4000 and SJCAM 5000, they were with us on our motorcycle trip across Hunza… and they have given me some really great footage to play with. So I was not that worried about the quality of the camera and its overall usage: note that with action cameras, your primary focus really is action, right? So the ruggedness of the gadget really comes into the limelight. SJCAM passed that test with flying colors. Also, the SJ6 Legend records in 4K at 30fps, which is a big deal, the videographer in me assures me. 🙂 Unboxing the SJ6 Legend (with tons of accessories) Here’s the unboxing of the SJ6 Legend action cam: I ordered the camera from AliExpress (you can order it from their OFFICIAL store on AliExpress – it really was a good idea to get their official accessories: they are much better quality than the vanilla flavored accessories!) Getting the Action Camera Here in Pakistan My order came via the Pakistan Postal Service. This is how the whole process went: How to Get Your SJCAM Action Camera Yes, I recommend the camera — it beats the GoPro 5 in most departments, and if you compare the price, then really, you can’t beat the SJCAM. If you want...Read More
Last year I had an interesting experience. I gave lectures and was invited to speak at different universities. I was talking to students on my main topic of interest: how to do work around things you love to do. I called it get paid to do what you would have paid to do. I have talked about this topic everywhere, right? On the blog, with friends, with corporate workers and entrepreneurs. Everyone, me included, want to know the best ways to cultivate meaningful work in our lives. But not students. They were simply not interested. I had to later...Read More
