Per project basis, $750 - $1,500 USD per project
You get paid to learn as much as you possibly can directly from world-class experts.
You get to read books, take courses, write about and create multi-media content related to those topics.
You can work from home, or Buenos Aires, or Hawaii.
If this sounds amazing to you, we've got your perfect job.
We are looking to expand our team with someone who is super motivated, proactive, and fast learner to help us build courses for our clients.
You’ll be on the front lines interviewing clients, learning from them, and working with them to build new informational products.
For a qualified individual, there is room for growth in the company. If your primary focus is getting this position just to make money, then this probably isn’t a great fit (there are certainly faster and easier ways to make a quick buck - it's more about happiness, impact and doing something great).
However, if you are interested in learning a ton, doing great work, working with super cool people and serving extremely interesting and varied clients (while also being compensated), then this is for you.
Monetize Your Expertise (aka MYE) is a course production company - we create online courses and training for people and companies by doing all of the heavy lifting for them. Rather than running in circles for 6-12 months or more, trying to figure out how to build an online course, we do it for them. It only ends up taking a few hours of their time, and the result is world-class!
All our clients have to do is show up on a series of interview calls with us, and then take a few hours to record the audio from an outline we provide to them, and we do the rest. It takes them about 25 hours total (instead of 12 months) and we do all the work outlining their course, incorporating any other materials they might have, creating slides, worksheets, quizzes and more, editing the videos into a finished course, setting it all up onto a learning management system (LMS) and marketing the course to generate revenue for them.
We are a team of people who all deeply care about doing good work, helping each other, and helping our clients. The work style of the team is pretty independent - we make sure everyone has what they need to do a great job and then everyone goes off and does deep work.
MYE doesn't try to grow as fast as possible, or make as much money as possible, or slave-drive employees. We value growth and learning and a well-rounded life. You can work in the way that is best for you, as long as you produce amazing results for our clients.
The most important thing - this isn't a job. You are becoming part of the "team" for our company. This means that we don't want someone to just clock in and clock out, and do the bare minimum just to get paid. We need you to actually care about what we do as a company, want to help us grow and improve.
Basically, if you just want to show up, get the work done, and go home, this is not for you.
If you will be excited to do the work, bringing with you tons of ideas for how the company can grow and do better... if you're pumped to think about where we are headed as a company, and seeing this opportunity as an investment in growing something greater than yourself, then you are our type of person.
Great course content can be the difference between feeling like those memories of staring at a teacher droning on in 6th grade that still gives you nightmares, versus a fun and interactive experience that feels useful, inspiring, engaging, and the kind of course that will be seen literally millions of time by people happily paying $500 - $5,000 for it.
1. Monitoring projects through Basecamp
2. Read books, PDFs, blogs, and listening workshops from a client in preparation for building their course
3. Getting on calls to interview industry leaders to learn what they have to teach, guiding them through structuring that into a course
4. Outlining the entire course
5. Designing worksheets, quizzes, and other instructional design elements
6. Working with a team of dynamic colleagues all over the world
Don’t worry - I know you’ve probably never done half of this. But you MUST be an excellent writer, conversationalist, and problem solver (to figure the rest out).
Per project basis, generally ranging from $750 - $1,500 USD per project, depending on project size and the quality of your work
We are looking for someone to grow and improve with the company
“Working with MYE has been a great experience. Not only do I get to work from home and on my own time–which has also taught me a lot of self-motivation and time management–but I’ve also learned what it’s like to start your own business, and how to best go about it. Grant’s also super kind, flexible, and he helps/teaches you as much as possible so that you get as much out of the experience as possible.” – Digne
