Just about the only thing keeping me on Facebook these days are the memories reminding me of where I’ve been. Back in December one memory that popped up was of a post I made in 2008 in which I wrote, “is wondering how to make money appear out of thin air.”
Throughout this winter and now spring I’ve seen some similar reminders of where I was financially 14-15 years ago. But that post in particular has stuck with me because I remember exactly where I was and what I was feeling when I wrote it.
When I wrote that Facebook post in 2008 I was sitting at the kitchen table in an apartment that was freezing cold because it was poorly insulated, propane prices had soared, and I was a broke teacher (partly because of the fuel prices).
I didn’t figure out a way to make money appear out of thin air, but I did figure out some ways that I could make a little bit of money without having to get a second job. At first it was just enough to put a little breathing room between paychecks. Today, it’s the money that I bank for my daughters’ college funds.
What I started to figure out back in the cold winter of 2008/09 were some ways to create and sell digital products and services. Over the years I’ve made some mistakes and refined my methods. And in How to Create and Sell Your Own Digital Products in 2023 I will share those lessons with you.
