Yes, you’ve read it right! You can be wasting anywhere from $10,000 to $130,000 right now by not sharing your technical expertise with others. In other words, you can keep the money by writing about tech. All this is doable while keeping your full-time job. You think it’s impossible? That programmers like to pay nothing for resources? Think again, because hundreds of authors already did it, with outliers like Nathan Barry and Sacha Greif making six figures. The best part is that (after the info product is ready) it’s mostly passive income!
If you want to stop wasting $10,000 to $130,000 per year, and always wanted to become an author, pre-order my latest book ProgWriter [programmer + writer]: Lessons learned on my path from ordinary developer to writer of multiple programming books—that sell. In this short read, I explain what I did in a span of two years, what worked and what did not.ORDER here->>> https://gum.co/tewg
