Let’s evaluate How to Ethically Make Money Online
Two months ago, I started this blog, wrote a few posts, but then abandoned it. I learned that once you lose momentum, it takes a while to start moving again.
Over 1.5 Billion Websites and Climbing
I didn’t enter into my 2019 summer vacation from school with the intent of writing a blog. After all, Internet Live Stats reports that there are already over 1.7 billion websites and climbing. What can I offer that the world wide web doesn’t already have?
But, per the advice of my mentor, I started Pulsipedia. Someone in the world will learn from my journey. My successes and failures will help someone on his or her path. It’s my desire to help others while I continue to learn from the giants in the online industry.
My Journey Begins in 2013
My mission to find a way to make money online began in 2013. I saved a binder of notes on some of the things I’ve learned in this endeavor. This word cloud provides a visual of those splattered experiences.
My online businesses ranged from selling products on eBay and Amazon to dropshipping on Shopify. None of them achieved a level of success to brag about, so I continued on my quest for the next ‘shiny object’ to guide me on how to make money online.
Create a Digital Product
I started to think that I needed Kevin David’s Digital Course Secrets to create and market a digital product. I’ve sold some physical products on Amazon and eBay with some success, but as a teacher that is used to designing lesson plans, Kevin David’s Digital Secrets Course lit a fire under me. Instead of selling physical products I wondered if creating and selling an online course or digital product would align more to my skills.
Kevin provided an example of a person who created and successfully sold a course on how to do a handstand. Who would have thought that there are lots of people that need instructions for doing a handstand. It’s not quite what I had in mind. But, I do admire that the instructor had expertise and created a course to teach others how to master a skill.
I can teach math, science, and language arts K-12 curriculums; however, I am thinking more along the line of instructing adults. So what would be worthwhile, in my eyes to create and offer to adults? And so my journey of discovery continued.
Two Comma Club Award
Here’s a thought. Russell Brunson presents the Two Comma Club Award to users of his ClickFunnel Software who have sold over $1,000,000. I think that if you’ve earned that much money promoting a product, you probably have products of value.
Millenial teaches Baby Boomer
Kevin David was a recipient of the Two Comma Club Award, twice. His courses and trainings have helped over 2,000 of his students leave their 9-5 jobs behind them. I purchased Kevin David’s Ninja Masterclass in 2017 to learn how to sell with Fulfillment by Amazon. The course is extremely well designed with modules, lessons, videos, and content based on his expertise. The information is timely because he updates lessons as the field evolves. I’m constantly flabbergasted with the intellect and expertise that Kevin displays as I listen to his off the cuff responses to questions about white labeling products for Fulfillment through Amazon. His respect for others and knowledge of his niche constantly emanates through his responses. I love the way someone younger than my children has become such a profound teacher to me in my life.
So while I’m deciding on what type of course to create, an easy start would be to become an affiliate marketer of Kevin David’s digital products.
‘Partner With Him’
While contemplating what type of course or product I wanted to market, I came across another Two Comma Club Award recipient whose character also stood out.
This recipient, Dean Holland, has made it possible for others to partner with him and use his multi-million dollar business to make a lot of money with him, morally and ethically.
That phrase ‘partner with him’ resonated well with me. That means that I would not be in this alone. We would share commissions on the sales of his digital products that I generated. But, I don’t like to sell. That’s cool, because Dean will instruct me on his secret marketing sauce that involves the four-letter word that can grow any business. So instead of creating my own online courses and digital products, I could offer his products.
Let me think this through. He has a vested interest because every time I make money, he would make money. Therefore, it’s logical that he would provide me coaching that would help grow my business because my growth would be mutually beneficial. That’s perfect. That reminds me of science lessons on mutualism.
Maybe you slept through the science lesson on mutualism, the ecological interaction between two or more species where each species has a net benefit. But, I’m sure you’ve seen the flowers and bees model it. Let’s be clear, the mutualism lesson I’m talking about is not about birds and the bees, just flowers and bees. The flowers provide the bees with nectar and pollen that the worker bees collect to feed the bee colony. The bees travel from flower to flower to collect the nectar, spreading the flower pollen in the process which helps the flowers reproduce. The bees benefit. The flowers benefit. Mutualism. So that’s an analogy of what happens when you become a partner with Dean Holland, each party benefits mutually.
The 4 Letter Word ThaIt’s at Can Grow Any Business
So let’s get back to ‘I don’t like to sell.” Well, that part was resolved when I watched Dean Holland’s presentation The 4 Letter Word That Can Grow Any Business hosted at an independently organized TED event.
Dean Holland explains the marketing concept of offering a free product. For example, he offers a free book The Iceberg Effect. Is he the only online business that implements this strategy? Certainly, not. But, his offer includes a way to partner with a millionaire.

Copywriting Secrets by Jim Edwards
It was silly for me to take so long to write this post. After all, it doesn’t have to be perfect. I used Grammarly to edit it and have also gone back into my blog Admin to update as I think of things that will edify it.
