I used to belive that most of the people would be interested in investing money, but 60% of you were actually interested in making money. Which, in hindsight now, it is obvious, if you don’t have money to invest then what will you invest? So first step itself is we should start making money.

Recently I was searching for a video editor for my team and almost every candidate that we met was a self-taught video editor, who 2 years before, 6 months before, 4 years before.
Started video editing, due to some needs, it was their own need, and gradually they realised that they are good at it and now they are working with so many different brands, so many clients across the world And it makes me so happy because they are like 20-21, and earning more than what their average college placement salary is, which is so brillant.

It is not every one’s cup of tea to make presentations. So if you can actually become the guy who makes presentations, I remember, this was probably a year ago I talk to a new person every week.
Because he realised that start-ups need presentations in order to raise funding, and need expertise in those presentations, and they do not have that expertise. They have all the numbers, they have all the data, they have all the content, but the art needed to weave it into a story that is something which they are missing.
So he specialises in just that. And it was brilliant because I was like oh my god man! The world of start-ups is already exploding, every person is looking for funding, every person needs a funding and a presentation, so you are right there at the spot. So he actually became a premium Fiverr profile member just by being so good with what he did and that impressed me beyond doubt.

A lot of apps are being made where you do not have to write a code. Software code is not written. You can actually use existing software products to build that product out, for example, the online courses that I run I have not written a single line of code. One, because I am not a coder. Two, because no one is coder in my whole team. So what do we do? We use multiple softwares, and then use another software to combine all of them and all of that is called no code software creation.
So through this course you can learn no code web app development which can be a great way for you to help others who are not software engineers and cannot afford one for now, to get started in their business and make happy money through it.
