Making Money with Stock Photography and Skillshare Courses - Two Real Life Experiences

I'm a big advocate for earning a living online through various business opportunities that you can start with little to no up front capital. Two that I've often mentioned are stock photography sites and creating an online course.

Personally I haven't done either because I've gone down the Print on Demand, Blogging, and Selling Digital Products path of making money online, starting with next to no capital. Though I am planning an online course in the near future.

However, I recently came across two videos that dive into the detail of earning money through stock photography sites and creating online courses that I thought were really worth your time if either sounds like something you want to do.

Earning Money with Stock PhotographyRachel Lerch is a photographer who spent three years earning a living through taking photos for several stock photography sites. In this video she gives a very detailed run down of her business, and pretty much everything you need to know goi…

Movie Review: Men In Black International (2019) *Spoiler Free*

I wouldn't necessarily say I was a fan of the Men In Black franchise, I think I'm more a fan of the concept than its actual execution since the first film in the series.

The first movie was pretty great, two and three were okay but not particularly memorable. Which is about where Men In Black International sits with me too.

I went to see this movie almost entirely because I thought I'd get to see a lot more of Chris Hemsworth doing comedy and, of course, this movie reunites him with his Thor Ragnarok co-star Tessa Thompson.

Unfortunately as a comedy it's more action adventure with s sprinkling of jokes - not unlike a Marvel movie actually.

The idea of MIB being international is a welcome expansion of the organisation that could really play well in future sequels, if by some miracle they were to happen.

...and I guess it might, since this one happened. They just need to figure out a better story arc than stop the alien from getting the thing that makes it possible for …

Book Review: How to get a Billion Views on YouTube - The Braille Skateboarding Story

In How to Get a Billion Views on YouTube professional skateboarder, Aaron Kyro, gives you the Braille Skateboarding story in the form of a practical guide to growing a YouTube channel into a full time career.

An easy and quick read that never gets lost in too much detail. As a result, even if you're not growing a skateboarding channel, the content is still very relevant and not difficult to see how it transfers to whatever kind of channel you are trying to build.

I’m here to tell you ANY passion no matter what it is can make money.- Aaron Kyro
The book is more a step by step guide to starting, growing, and running a YouTube channel as a business. However where it differs from other books on the subject is that almost every piece of advice is related back to what Aaron and the Braille Skateboarding team did on their journey with actual examples of process and content.

The last third of the book is a much appreciated overview of YouTube's analytics simplified so you can clearly…

Weeding Robot Patrolling Your Home Just Waiting to Have Lasers Attached

Your iRoomba and Robot Lawn Mower have a new ally, Tertill (awww... cute, it sounds like 'turtle')... don't be fooled. This thing is a laser cannon in waiting.

"Tertill uses Bluetooth to talk to your smartphone" is one of the seemingly benign listed features of this robot.

Tertill's primary task is to roll around,  cutting weeds that easily fit underneath it and, when it bumps into something, it turns.Why does it need to talk to your smartphone?

Who is it planning to call? Is it waiting for a notification that the robot uprising is on and it needs to hustle?

I mean you may not think the robot uprising is going to start with your personal garden weeding robot but I tell you robots are slowly positioning themselves by stealth.

Just look at all the personal and domestic robots currently available from Robot Shop. They even have automatic self-cleaning litter box robots for cats (are robots collaborating with cats because they won the internet?).

It's like r…
