HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE: Learn how to make money from home with my step-by-step plan to build a $5,000 per month passive income website portfolio (based on building 10 websites that make at least $500 per month each).
In association with the Make Money from Home LIONS CLUB.
NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE REQUIRED. ALL INSTRUCTIONS ARE FULLY DETAILED AND STEP-BY-STEP SO ANYONE CAN FOLLOW THEM EASILY.
Online passive income is the ultimate dream. Making money while you sleep. Everybody wants it.
But is it really possible?
The short answer is "yes."
The longer answer is "yes, but it isn't easy to accomplish."
If it was, wouldn't everyone be doing it?
In my course, I give you a step-by-step plan on how to develop a passive income website portfolio and show you how making money online actually works.
The specific plan I teach is designed to make you $5,000 per month in passive income earnings, based on 10 websites, with each website having a targeted earnings level of at least $500 each. Once you understand the process though, you can decide to build 20 of these websites, or 100! When you stop is up to you (and yes, there are people making tens of thousands of dollars per month on the Internet based on these concepts - they just love the work and don't ever stop building new websites or expanding their current ones!).
What's great about the business plan that I teach you is not only the income level you will accomplish if you follow through, but all that you will learn in the process. The first lesson you are taught is how to build a website or blog using WordPress on your own domain (without having to learn how to code). The skills you learn in this course will enable you to build all kinds of online businesses and open the door for all kinds of entrepreneurial projects you may have.
Note: When I say we will be creating a website using WordPress, I don't mean creating one through the WordPress website. Websites created through the WordPress website are severely limited in what you can do with them and offer very little flexibility overall. The method I teach enables you to create truly professional websites by installing the WordPress software and you won't be limited in any way.
Not only that, you will be able to evaluate business ideas much more intelligently once you've gone through this whole process. You will understand the fundamentals of keyword research & analysis, traffic & lead generation, social & affiliate marketing, monetization & conversion testing, and traffic analysis. These skills will help you immensely in ANY business you ever decide to start (online or not, passive or not).
Generating an online passive income won't happen overnight and takes a lot of hard work, but going through the process is completely worth it and having an exact plan of action is the ONLY way to ensure success.
Let me put it this way: if you were offered no pay for six months for 40+ hours of work per week, but after those six months, you got $5,000+ per month for the rest of your life, would that be worth it to you?
If that idea isn't unbelievably exciting to you, then this isn't the business for you.
This isn't a get rich quick scheme. This is a business. Except with this business, instead of trading your time for money (like most jobs), you are investing your time. You work hard now and continue to reap the benefits indefinitely. Building an online business takes a lot of work and a lot of patience, but the rewards can be amazing.
That's the kind of business I teach you in this course.
NOTE: Throughout my course you will be referred to video lessons. While everything in video lessons are as up to date as possible (I frequently update the video lessons), the place to check for the most up-to-date information is in the video descriptions (on the same page you watch the videos). This can be the video descriptions on the pages of the LIONS CLUB website, or the video description of the Udemy or YouTube pages. Be sure to read the video descriptions of each video before watching the video itself.

Do you dream of leaving your office job and making your mark on the world by writing a wildly popular book or creating a magnificent blog read by thousands—if not millions—of people?
Do you wish you were able to write business reports, sales emails, website copy, cover letters or college essays with supreme confidence?
Imagine, then, what it would be like if you could write with the style and flair of journalists on top newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal and The Economist.
Welcome to the brand new second edition of Secret Sauce Of Great Writing, a program that will show you how it's possible to upgrade your business writing, blog writing and copywriting skills to that level extremely fast.
The course is taught by Shani Raja, author of the bestselling Udemy course Writing With Flair: How To Become An Exceptional Writer and a former Wall Street Journal senior editor and writing coach, as well as an ex-contributor to The Economist, the FT, Dow Jones and Bloomberg News.
In this course, Shani will introduce you to the fundamental four ingredients of exceptional writing:
In as little as an hour, you'll know exactly how to apply this "secret sauce" to your own writing—putting you way ahead of other writers in your profession or industry.
"Outstanding course from the get go..." — Rudyard von, Udemy student
"A genuine recipe to produce attention-grabbing writing..." — Hassan Masood, Udemy student
"Revolutionary..." — Marie-Rose Davis, Udemy student
"Impressive..." — Cornelia M. Lorenzo, Udemy student
"Priceless..." — Alimaa Batchuluun, Udemy student
The secret sauce
The first three ingredients in the secret sauce—simplicity, clarity and elegance—respectively make your writing punchy, crisp and graceful.
Evocativeness is the fourth quality that makes your prose stimulating.
When you put those four ingredients together in a piece of writing, it will become truly outstanding.
In fact, it's the exact formula Shani has used for many years to edit articles devoured regularly by millions of people worldwide.
Perhaps you've always felt your writing was too weak to get noticed or make an impact. Maybe you've struggled to figure out how to improve it, or even to know where to begin.
This course will reveal the writing tactics of world-class editors in a well structured and easy-to-follow format.
You'll find that as soon as you incorporate those four ingredients (simplicity, clarity, elegance and evocativeness) into your writing, you'll see a seismic shift in the impact of your words and sentences.
"Goes beyond the bland lessons of early education by adding flavor and life to your prose..." — Billy Williams, Udemy student
"Excellent advice and interaction kept me glued to this course..." — John Faherty, Udemy student
"Really gives you the ability to see how your writing could improve..." — Cameron M. Kreider, Udemy student
"Shattered my opinion about good writing..." — Bilal Ahmad, Udemy student
"Thank you for enlightening us..." — Tanpreet Kaur Narula, Udemy student
"Makes you feel comfortable and excited about writing..." — Travis Fry, Udemy student
"Helped me to see exactly what I needed..." — Shalecia Tatiana Wallace, Udemy student
How many job interviews might you have lost because your cover letters and resume didn't hit home?
How many customers might you have turned off because the words on your website were too dull and uninspiring to read?
How many books or blog posts have you quit writing, or put off, because you couldn't figure out why your sentences and words lacked the power to captivate a reader?
You'll find the answers to such questions in this course, your first glimpse into the wondrous world of elite writing.
Not tips, but a writing system
This entry-level writing course doesn't focus on the technical aspects of writing, such as grammar rules.
Rather, it reveals the powerful key principles that will enable you quickly to design more stylish prose.
Nor will you get a bunch of fragmented writing "tips" you could pick up anywhere on the internet.
This is an all-encompassing writing system that will change forever the way you think about and approach the craft.
Your essays, cover letters, press releases, marketing copy and sales emails—not to mention books and blog posts—will never look the same again.
"Most great teachers can't write, and most great writers can't teach. Shani Raja is one of the few who excels at both. I managed dozens of reporters and editors during my 12-year career at Bloomberg News. Now he's the person I go to when I want help with my writing." NICOLAS JOHNSON, FORMER BLOOMBERG AND GLOBE AND MAIL EDITOR.
"As a young reporter my prose might have been robotic and jargon-laden if not for Shani's watchful eye and attention to the elusive human interest behind ostensibly technical stories. Beyond the standard (yet crucial) reporting skills—like accuracy, clarity and integrity—I also learned refinement, how to withstand impulses toward glibness and cynicism that can naturally set in when oft revisiting the same beat. Shani will teach you how to write well, and with grace." HAWA ALLAN, JOURNALIST AND FICTION WRITER.

This course provides a general introduction to operations management.

This course should be of particular interest to people aspiring a career in designing and managing business processes, either directly (V.P. of Ops, COO) or indirectly (e.g. management consulting). The course should also be of interest to people who manage interfaces between operations and other business functions such as finance, marketing, managerial accounting and human resources. Finally, a working knowledge of operations, which typically employs the greatest number of employees and requires the largest investment in assets, is indispensable for general managers and entrepreneurs.
We will see how different business strategies require different business processes, and vice versa, how different operational capabilities allow and support different strategies to gain competitive advantage. A process view of operations will be used to analyze different key operational dimensions such as capacity management, flow time management, supply chain management, and quality management. We will also discuss developments such as lean operations, just-in-time operations, and time-based competition.

Agile PM 101 – Learn the Truth About Agile versus Waterfall
Learn to See Agile and Waterfall in a Fresh, New Perspective as Complementary Rather Than Competitive
Created by Agile Project Management Academy - Chuck Cobb - Author of The Project Manager's Guide to Mastering Agile
Students: 108119, Price: Free
This course is part of an integrated, university-level curriculum of seven courses (See details below). This course is the first course in that series.
Over 125,000 students in my courses!
Over 7,000 5-star reviews in my courses!

Qualify for PMI-ACP Certification: Completion of all seven courses in this series will meet the requirement for 21 hours of training to qualify for PMI-ACP certification.
Learn to see Agile and traditional plan-driven project management principles and practices in a fresh new perspective as complementary to each other rather than competitive in order to get the best of these two worlds!
Many businesses and project managers are faced with a choice of choosing a traditional plan-driven approach (or what is sometimes called “Waterfall") or a more Agile approach for critical projects which can be a very important decision with significant business impact but there are many stereotypes and misconceptions that exist about both “Agile" and “Waterfall" that can be very confusing and misleading. Many people see this as a binary and mutually-exclusive choice between two extremes and attempt to force-fit projects to one of these two approaches when the right solution is to go in the other direction and fit the approach to the project.
Since this is such a critical decision that has such a big impact, it's very important to get past these stereotypes and misconceptions, develop a clear objective understanding of what it means (or doesn't mean) when people talk about "Agile versus Waterfall".
This course is part of an overall curriculum that is designed around helping students develop the skills required for a high-impact Agile Project Management role. Most students will want to take the complete curriculum rather than individual courses. The complete curriculum should be taken in the following order:
Agile PM 101 - Learn the Truth About Agile versus Waterfall
Agile PM 102 - What's the Future of Agile Project Management?
Agile PM 201 - Understanding Agile at a Deeper Level
Agile PM 202 - Introduction to Agile Project Management
Agile PM 301 - Mastering Agile Project Management
Agile PM 401 - Advanced Agile Project Management
Agile PM 402 - Enterprise-level Agile Project Management
Students who complete the entire curriculum of all seven courses shown above will receive a signed certificate of completion from the Agile Project Management Academy. The complete set of seven courses will also meet the 21 hours of training required for PMI-ACP certification.
PMI-ACP Certification Course
In addition, there are one optional courses that is designed to supplement the above curriculum for students who are interested in PMI-ACP certification:
How to Prepare for PMI-ACP Certification is intended for students who are interested in using this curriculum to prepare for PMI-ACP certification

"Great tools and professional delivery..." —ERIQUE LARAE COGGINS, UDEMY STUDENT
Wish you could get more writing done? Be more consistent with your blogging? Grow your audience? Have your content shared more?
Let's be honest, nobody wants to write things that nobody reads. We write because we want to communicate. The question is, how do you write in a way that gets noticed (and actually get reads)?
The online blogging and writing world is more crowded than it’s ever been making it harder to stand out and get noticed. That's why you need to work smarter, not harder.
The tools in this course will help you do just that. In just a few minutes you'll discover tools and hacks for...
- Developing blogging ideas for articles people actually want to read
- Writing attractive headlines that make people want to click
- Capturing and organizing your blogging ideas
- Designing dynamic graphics for your blog & social media profile
- Setting up alerts for any time your blog is shared online
Have you’ve ever wondered why some people seem to attract thousands of readers with their blogs? Wonder how they get published at places like Huffington Post and Buzzfeed?
These writers know something you don’t… but the good news is that you can learn it, too.
I’m a professional copywriter and freelance blogger and I've spent the last three years writing and publishing articles at some of the world’s largest online publications — places like the Huffington Post and The Blaze. And during that time I've learned about some of the tools of the trade that will save you tons of time and frustration.
The blogging tools mentioned in this course are 100% free and have very little, if any, learning curve. This means you'll be able to take action immediately and see results FAST!
I don't want you to waste your time on this course, though, so if you answer NO to any of these questions then this course probably isn’t for you. (But if you answer YES then I wouldn’t miss this opportunity to invest in yourself)
- Do you want to (quickly) gain confidence as a blogger?
- Do you want to build a following and grow your platform as a blogger?
- Do you want more people read your blog and visit your blog or website?
- Do you want to see your content shared more on social media?
I’ve spent the past several years searching for and discovering these tools the hard way. And I’ll be transparent with you, you can search and find these tools on your own. BUT I can guarantee you that it will take you A LOT LONGER and you'll run the danger of falling even father behind.
I want to help YOU take a shortcut and hit the ground running.
I want to help YOU get ahead of the pack and boost your blogging productivity.
