Even if you have no idea how to sell, what to sell, or where to sell it, you can learn to earn!
I put together everything I’ve learned in one package, and today, you can take control of your life and your future. I quit my job and took on freedom and earning with a brand new attitude, and I learned how to earn, grow and make a living doing what I love.
Now I’m teaching others how to control their destiny – by sharing everything that works, doesn’t work, and makes for a successful side-gig. It’s time side-streaming became a part of your life!
With the tools from the Convert Your Skills program, you can MAKE MONEY doing the things you’re good at. It doesn’t matter if you’re great at networking, or the worst ever, or what kind of hair you have, or how good you are at running a business!
You don’t have to be the world’s best to share your knowledge and expertise. You just have to be able to solve a problem for someone else.
How does Convert Your Skills help you make money?
In this course, you’ll learn the process that I use to take the skills and experiences I have and start earning from them. I do this for everything I do now, and I’m happy not to have a full time job anymore! It’s amazing! I have more free time and get to do what I love and get paid. Here’s the skills I had and what I did with them, just to show you I’m not kidding!
College Soccer Experience – Became Soccer Coach ($20k per year)
Fitness Training Experience – Became a Personal Trainer ($8k per year)
Networking Experience – Started a Non-Profit to Teach Kids About Money ($5k per year)
Excel Data-basing – Became the Database Operator at a Small Business ($10k per year)
Event Planning – Became a Business Consultant ($9k per year)
Wanna know the CRAZY part??!?! I’m not the best at any of these, and I’m not even certified!!! It’s not about having those stupid credentials. It’s about how you sell what you do and how you do it. That’s not some secret sauce, it’s a formula!
FIRST BUILDING BLOCK: Businesses that solve problems make money, and you will too.
You’re good at something; everyone is. If you don’t know what it is yet, don’t worry. I’ll help you find it. But first, imagine that you earned $100, $200 or even $300 by sharing your knowledge or your experience. I can teach you what it takes to get your solution in front of people, and how to make sure you’re the one they select TO GET PAID!!!
Imagine, at 10 projects REALLY SMALL or clients per year for $109 each, you’ve earned $1, 090.
What would you do with an extra $1, 097?
Some of us want shoes! Or more nights out with our significant other. Or a cruise! Whatever YOU want to do with it!! BUY EVERYTHING!!
We can all earn from the things we already do and are good at. There’s a complex game being played around you – It’s important you know the rules, when to break them, and how to get moving.
There are people that are willing to pay your for your solutions. They want your business, your creativity and your expertise – whether you’re the best in the world or not. It doesn’t matter if you are young, old, fat, small, tall, or a total noob. If you can solve the problem, they’ll pay!
I know this because I’ve been there, and I’ve been shocked. There I was, using imitation Photoshop software, but getting paid to create a small logo for a friend’s company. That turned int doing graphic projects like designing trucks, or full commissioned paintings. After that, I tried this same approach for six other skills.
Later, I left my job. Now, I consult (Converted: Business Experience), coach youth sports (Converted: College Soccer Experience), do personal training (Converted: Fitness Training) and more!
If I can show you how to sell your works, your designs, your time, or your ideas for just $20 an hour (a fairly low freelancing number), you’ll be on track to EARN MORE THAN $1,097 this year……
That means everything else is profit, and for the rest of your life, you can continue to earn money on the side as a side-streaming engine.
Did you earn that $1,097 this year? How about last year?
Did you invest in you? Did you get better???
If that’s true, stop reading and go straight to the sign up for the case study.
Convert Your Skills is a course designed to re-frame the mentality behind selling your work and time. If you’re new to this environment, there’s plenty of mistakes I can save you from making.
In 2014 my first “official” year in business, I made $15, 213 on the side of my full-time job, doing things I love. But before I could even do that, it started with just a small amount. Just $1,097 was enough to make me see that I could ramp this up even more.
Convert Your Skills comes with everything you need to get started right away. And when you’re done, you’ll know all the right moves to make FOREVER!
- CONVERSION 101: Where do you start in a world full of “experts” and success stories. Well, being where you are actually gives you a distinct advantage. I’ll tell you why and how to leverage it!
- Create Demand Even If You’re Not Perfect: Making your service desirable isn’t a magic trick anymore, there’s a science to it. I worked to figure it out by making mistakes, which saves you the hassle of having to do that!
- How Bad Salesman Still Sell: Selling isn’t about you, it’s about them, so let’s turn the chess board around and play a different game altogether. This gets fun, and you’ll quickly learn how to get sales.
- Use What You Don’t Know to Open Doors: Most people take the time to tell you everything they know. It’s an insecurity blanket and we all have them. But when you can take yours off, you can use your existing friends and contacts to help you reach new people to sell to, with a really high rate of success. Doesn’t matter if you’re bad at networking or not – it’s called humility, and people LOVE it.
- The Client Meeting: In my history, I’ve heard NO more than most, but the times that I heard YES, I always did these three things, and I’ll share those with you in this course!
- Pricing: How do you even know what to charge?!? Who tells you, and how do you know they’ll pay??? Well, you can start with my free pricing guide by signing up at the top of your screen, but we’ll go into way more detail in this course. Price is not important when you know what someone needs!
Let’s make one thing very clear:
I fully believe that you possess the ability to do all of this on your own.
That’s not what this course is for. It’s about fast tracking it, so you can save yourself mistakes. I’ve gone through all of the above in business and in freelancing, and I’ll show you the things that don’t work, the things that do, and share the techniques that net the most value. I’ll save you the time and failures and you’ll jump into a new state of thinking that will propel your success.
Convert Your Skills isn’t just about you earning though, it’s about breaking down the walls you have and setting yourself free. If you earn $1,097 this year, you could double it each year EASILY, and in no time you can leave your job and do what you love FULL TIME!
Knowing HOW to earn is more valuable than earning itself. And, once you understand what to do and what you’re afraid of, we’ll position you to achieve higher goals and bigger plateaus.
In 2010, I painted a shark on my iPad. After that, I gave a few copies away, not feeling good enough. Fast forward a lot of reading, research and experimentation.
Early in 2014, I painted my first acrylic painting, and sold it. You wouldn’t believe how much I sold it for, so I will show you. IT WAS MY FIRST ACRYLIC PAINTING EVER. Along the way, I tested different strategies, techniques and approaches, and made an extensive program in case someone wanted to do what I did. Turns out, MANY DO!
Then I started developing presentations for others as an offering to my graphic and design service. They were skills I had, now I earn from them.
Three years ago, I started selling my expertise, and now I work for 4 different clients doing 4 different types of work – all starting from doing small projects.
Before I show you the painting sale, I want you to recognize that my path is the EXACT same as yours. I was uncomfortable selling my knowledge and experience. I was uncomfortable bringing business into (one of) my skillset(s). I was scared. I was blocking myself from success. Most of all, I was afraid of what would happen when I did become successful.I felt unprepared. Unready.
Here’s how I got over it…
When is the last time you spent your money for the sole purpose of bettering yourself?
Maybe it was clothes, or drinks, or shoes.
But when did you spend it to make you better, smarter, sharper? When did it directly tie into making more money?
Sure business degrees can be important, but if you can’t sell your work or your business, is it directly going to your bottom line?
I want your bottom line to look like mine. MONEY COMING IN!
There’s nothing more valuable than bettering yourself. If you earned another $109 each month, in a year that’s $1, 090 this year. Over 5 years, that’s $5, 450.
I don’t do anything I don’t fully believe in, and I believe in you. $109 a month is small compared to what you could earn. The side-streaming limit is established only by you.
Back to my sale. So this was a commissioned piece – meaning we set up the deal before it was completed. He was interested in my work, and wanted to know if I’d paint him a piece. I hadn’t done acrylic before. Ever. I decided to experiment, and took the Convert Your Skills strategy for collection and sale of a skill – something you’ll learn too. Here’s my Paypal receipt:
Was this a big piece, yes. Was it the best piece ever? Hell no! I’m no Picasso!!!
I used my business background and a few simple sales techniques to land a $1, 768.65 paycheck.
It’s important to understand that I’m not world’s top artist. I’m not the world’s top anything! But, I put time into that work, and it looked great!
….Well…Now YOU can do the same thing I did, and still do!
It’s not as hard as it seems, but it is scary, and you will face your fear.
So that sale was for art, but maybe you’re not an artist.
I did some marketing for my full-time job. That’s turned into a marketing consultant role, helping me first reach $154 per month for online management, to $480 per month for social media management, to full growth consulting for $1, 245 per month.
It’s not about your knowledge, but it is about your approach and your attitude. There’s no limit to what you do.
Here’s how it starts:
1. We need to identify the most common barriers you face, and why they exist – and what “big” professionals due to beat them.
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. -Calvin Coolidge
2. We need a goal. Together we’ll identify some talents and skills that can get you started, and we’ll work to get you underway with a clearly defined starting point and step-by-step guide.
You have had a dream for so many years. Let today be the day you make a plan for it. Just think about how much more likely you are to hit your target when you finally aim at it. -Steve Maraboli
3. We will re-structure your mentality of failure and success to a higher state, opening the door to a state of success that’s everlasting!
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better. -Samuel Beckett
How confident am I about this course, and the contents of it?
If you go join me for mentoring and feel that you have not had a re-framed mindset, with a more clear direction of how to reach your goals, I’ll refund you everything you’ve paid me. That simple. I say that because I know that I can change your attitude, your success rate, and your ability to meet your goals. I know it so well, I guarantee it.
You can even keep the materials I give you.
Yeah. Really. If you go through the course and don’t feel like you’ve benefited, I’ll refund your money. Simple. All you have to do is show me you’ve taken the time to complete all my objectives.
You’ll be a Side-Streamer – someone that earns on the side from doing what they love. You can save more. You can buy things everyone says you shouldn’t.
You can feel free.
Is that a crazy guarantee? Yes. Because I believe in the product.
Say it with me: “You’re right. I’m ready. IT DOESN’T MATTER THAT I HAVE NO EXPERIENCE SELLING, OR EARNING ON THE SIDE, OR EVEN TALKING TO PEOPLE. It’s time I earned more, struggled less, and became more successful.”
Here are a few other topics you will develop:
- Why your skill-set is a business, and how projecting it will help you sell.
- Why I believe in an LLC, and how to set one up.
- The secret behind pricing and where to start.
- How you can turn those you meet into clients, connections, and partners.
- What to do when someone asks you for a quote/price on the spot, and you’re mind falls to pieces.
- Ways to make sure you get the job if someone is asking for multiple quotes from competitors.
- Simple examples of scripts to help you build your revenue and expand your audience.
- Examples of things I’ve tried that went TOTALLY wrong, and what I’ve learned from them, for example, when a client asks for work in a medium you haven’t mastered yet. (Hint: It’s OK to take work outside your expertise if you have the right approach)
- Interviews with other freelancers on both ends of the success spectrum, discussing things they’ve learned and things they still struggle with.
- Why your product should NOT be perfect before you sell it!
- And much, much more!
“I started meeting with Aaron in early June. During this time, I wasn’t working and had been out of work for about 7 months for medical reasons. At our initial meeting, it was just to catch up, have coffee and talk about what was going on in our lives at the time. He told me he had quit his full time position in order to pursue other jobs that were more satisfying and meaningful to him. I was really impressed that he had the ability to turn his hobbies and talents into work and money. I was actually quite jealous! I quickly told him I needed to learn how to do this! He said he had been putting together a program to help others change their lives, just like he had done and he would be interested in sharing his program with me.
Over the next weeks Aaron and I were meeting regularly but I have to admit I was skeptical that I could do this. My homework assignments began as introspective research. I thought about all the things I was good at, asked my friends what they thought I was good at, and, although it was not necessarily the assignment, I was constantly mulling over things I could do to make money and scheming for business ideas. My ideas ranged from a personal organizer, to dog walking, to event management. I found I had such a wide range of skills that it seemed like I could do anything! But really, it was very hard to translate some of these skills and ideas into money. I didn’t see how this was going to work and I started to get discouraged around week 4 or 5.
Throughout these weeks when I felt I was getting a little stuck, Aaron maintained his convictions that this was something I could do and after every meeting I left with a sense of purpose. I was going to figure this out! Aaron repeatedly made sure I knew that he was always available to me if I had any questions or new concerns that popped up during my research. Although he was only a phone call away if I needed him, I never actually called. I stuck to my guns and did my homework and research each week and waited until our weekly meetings to communicate my accomplishments and hesitations from the previous week’s research. After a few weeks, I finally narrowed my new job down to dog walking. I started getting a little ahead of Aaron and concentrated on a website and marketing myself, and my new business with fliers posted at apartment complexes and vet offices. I knew I was going to get people to bite – all I had to do was wait! One day turned into two, then three and then a week went by and I hadn’t heard from anyone. It was a major BUST.
I continued meeting with Aaron while all of this was happening in the background. I was now even more firm in my belief that I could not just start making money with my skills. I realized maybe I really did need Aaron’s help and advice more than I originally thought. I was feeling completely stuck after my failed attempt but still hopeful that SOMETHING would work out.
Then one day, I decided to make some DIY shelves in my room. I had two pieces of wood left over and decided I was going to use them as a canvas and make a little sign out of them. I completed my art project and was happy with the results so I posted a picture on Facebook. Immediately my friends were “liking” my art and someone told me they wanted to buy it. That’s when the light bulb went off!
Now, it’s been five months since my first meeting with Aaron. I have sold roughly $1,800 worth of my artwork. That number does not make me a millionaire, and it doesn’t pay all my bills, but it makes me feel SO GOOD! It’s the best, most satisfying money I’ve ever made.
I think the hardest part of this process for me was training my mind to think differently. It’s easy to talk yourself out of an idea but Aaron taught me to be consistent and persistent. Results will come if you focus and give yourself time. I would highly recommend this program to everyone who wants to be more satisfied with the work they are doing, wants flexibility with their work schedule, or who wants a little bit of a personal challenge! The things I have learned about myself in this process continue to increase and my fear of failure has gone out the window. I know I can take all the information I learned throughout these last months and apply it to future circumstances, wherever I end up in life. Overall my advice is that life is short and you should do what makes you happy. If you can make money doing what makes you happy, it makes life just that much sweeter.
Thanks Aaron for OPENING MY EYES, helping me to change my way of thinking, and helping me feel incredibly liberated! It has been an amazing experience to go through this process and come out the other side working for myself! I’m floored at my newfound confidence and truly feel like I could do anything now that I’ve been through your program!”
