136 - How to Make Money with Your Creative Work

I'm going to gloss over the conversation about whether or not you should make money with your creative endeavors. I firmly believe that there is a happy place where you can get paid to do what you love.

Yes, you can also sell out. I can't tell you where that line is, but I think you know it in your heart when you do it. 

Here are some common revenue streams for creative people: 

  1. books or ebooks
  2. online courses
  3. coaching- group or individual 
  4. membership sites
  5. paid teaching - at a school or workshops online or in person
  6. affiliate sales
  7. sponsored blog posts or social media posts
  8. ads on your site
  9. physical products
  10. side jobs - editing, freelancing, being a virtual assistant, etc

Those aren't all the ways you can make money, but some of the more common ways creative people are making money online. I see a lot of people talking about the ways you can make money with these various revenue streams, but not a lot of people are talking about the COST. I don't mean financially, though that is a factor. I'm going go dive deep into how you can consider the costs of these revenue streams.
