Udemy also help instructors to promote their courses.

How to make a course on Udemy?

Let’s start with the production. You have to prepare your video or presentation that you will use as a tool to teach your students. Prepare it as soon as you can because making a video will eat so most of your time. You can use everything you already have to minimize expenses just like what Nick did. Using his wife’s dslr and web camera he was able to record and produce videos and finished his course in a month. .

When marketing your book, try giving it out for free to as many people as you can. The goal is to get at least 1,000 reviews so that the Udemy algorithm will start promoting your course. This strategy can also be done on Amazon.

How to be UDemy Affiliate

If you are planning to take a coding bootcamp, there are things you should consider before your first day at camp. If you enrolled on a Web Development bootcamp then you can apply these tips.

  1.     Go to FreeCodeCamp.com and do everything until advance algorithm & scripting.

FreeCodeCamp is an open source community that can help you to learn code. There’s no need to do advance algorithm and scripting on this community in order to be ready for bootcamp. But if you have more time, then do it. That will make you more ready for bootcamp. With FreeCodeCamp you can learn skills like JavaScript.

  1.       Get additional practice with html/css by creating a personal portfolio, and cloning websites that you like

After learning on FreeCodeCamp you can try making your own good projects and put it on your portfolio. This can help you practice what you’ve learned and easily apply it on bootcamp. You can also try to clone a website you like.

  1. Take an online AngularJS course. I like Teamtreehouse's course much more than codeschool or codecademy.

After learning and applying JavaScript, HTML and CSS, take an online AngularJS course. One of the good online AngularJS courses is Teamtreehouse. You can learn web design and coding from more than 1000 videos on this course. Here's an affiliate link to Team Treehouse: http://engineeredtruth.com/TTH

  1. You don't need to learn bootstrap

You don’t really need to learn bootstrap before attending bootcamp but it will be helpful for you to easily make a responsive website.

  1. You should absolutely learn code before going to a bootcamp to get the most out of it.

Before attending a bootcamp, it is important that you already know the basics because if you don’t it will be hard for you to learn advanced skills. Learning the basics while on the bootcamp will only eat your time that will result to learning few skills and waste of money and time.

Breakdown of How I Make $10k/month from YouTube

I recently launched my course on how to be a YouTuber. You can find it at http://howtoyoutube.com/ . In this course I will discuss on how I do things on my YouTube. In order to do this, I have to breakdown my sources of income to show you how and why I do things. I created most of my videos to earn money and half of it is to help you with your career.

This is how much money, YouTube ad revenue is giving me. I earned $33,070.87 for the past year with just the YouTube itself.

And the year prior, from May 1, 2015 to May 1, 2016 I got $14, 006.65 from YouTube’s ad revenue.

And I earned $2,961.66 from ad revenue on my very first year which is from July 4, 2013 to July 4, 2014.

2015 to 2016 is also the year I’m having doubts on my channel. For me to solve this and continue to earn money, I do a lot of experiment on my YouTube channel. I sell digital marketing course called Indemandcareer where Seth, a business and entrepreneur coach help students to get a job on digital marketing and earn $60K / year. We both sell it for $97 per month and split it 50/50 where we both get $45 and clickbank gets $7. In the beginning we earned $300 a week from selling this course and after a few months we started earning thousands of dollars. Not only our profit increases but also we started receiving emails from students that they got a job after taking the course. I interviewed most of them, some of it are already posted on my YouTube channel and some are still haven’t published yet.

So, if you’re planning to make your YouTube channel, you’ve probably earn good money through selling someone’s online courses or your own course. I don’t mind selling someone’s course like Seth’s Indemandcareer. We both share expertise, he makes the course using his 5 years of experience in digital marketing and I promote it to my audience on my YouTube channel.

If you want your audience to click your advertisement, you have to be specific with your content. For example, you are selling iPhone. You can write on your ad like “5 Reasons why you should buy iPhone instead of Samsung.” The audience should be hook on your content the first time they saw it. Some keywords you can use on your content are Free, Because, Steps To. These are words that can  open their curiosity.

2. Description has to match the hook

Your hook or the title of your ad should match your description. Sometimes clickbait don't really work on advertisements. In order for them to click this two should always match. Your ad's description should be short. Don't give so much information in the description, it should be short because Facebook don't let too long descriptions run.

College vs coding bootcamp

Choosing between college and coding bootcamp might be hard for someone because of so many factors. College has been the only reliable place to learn something. Now that several programs are booming like bootcamps it might be hard for you to choose. Here is a simple guide that may help you decide.

Coding bootcamp is a technical training program which usually last form 8 to 13 weeks while college will take 2 to 4 years to finish. Some bootcamps, like DevMountain, offer all full time students housing near the campus. This is great because it will save time and money. Just imagine waking up early to go to school and spending money for gas or public transportation. With bootcamps, you can spend most of your time focusing on your study and projects.

In a computer science course, you will learn Java or C++ while with bootcamp you'll learn Ruby and Javascript. When studying at a coding bootcamp, they will provide you tons of online sources which can help you while with college your only reliable source when you're having trouble is mostly textbooks. Bootcamps will teach you the specific skills you can apply on building web apps with the latest tech you need. With this, there is a high possibility that you will excel as a start up compared to taking a computer science course. Most universities are using curriculum from their past school years which may result to not learning what you can really use when you graduated.

If cost is an issue then a coding bootcamp is for you. Most bootcamps may cost $10,000 or $15,000 while one year in college may cost you triple or quadruple the cost of a coding bootcamp.

Matt graduated at Devmountain one of the cheapest coding bootcamps in US. If you want to know more about coding bootcamp and his personal project for this bootcamp, click the video below.

How To Prepare For A Job Interview

1. Determine how formal the job interview is going to be      Identify if you are going on a job interview for a startup or bigger company. Most of startup companies don't have a standard hiring process compared to bigger companies. Also, if you're interviewing for a startup you don't have to prepare for a specific questions because most likely the interview will be a natural conversation. On the other hand, if it’s on a bigger company you should study the typical interview questions.

2. Get into shape
According to a study, employers perceived obese candidates as inefficient. They are perceived to be sick more often that will result to less productivity and healthcare costs.

3. Dress appropriately
Remember that first impression lasts. Therefore your appearance is extremely important. You have to know the culture of the company, if they are wearing casual you should be on a business casual and if they're wearing business casual wear something professional. Select an attire that fits you well to make a good looking appearance and comfortable on the job interview. You can see below my custom made suit from Cotton Brew. It is the only men wear company who made to measurements suits. You can use my code   ENGINEEREDTRUTH to get 17% on your made to measure suits. Lastly, make sure your chosen attire is clean and ironed.

4. Avoid drinking caffeine                           Coffee will always be a companion every morning, however drinking coffee before a job interview is a bad idea. For some, it will cause them to experience heart palpitations. We don't want the employers sees us comfortable or being nervous that will result to talk faster.

5. Drive the conversation
A typical job interview format is a question and answer. Instead try to make it a conversation to have you both comfortable to each other.
6. Don't state qualities, show them
Instead of telling the recruiter of your qualities, share some story or experience where your qualities shows.
7. Body Language
Expert says to aim a neutral post like sitting tall to show that you're attentive. It is also important to not put your hands in your pockets or behind your back because this will makes you appear stiff.

8. Stalk Everyone                                             Do your research before the interview. If you have the name of your recruiter, find them on Linkedin and look for others who work in the company. With this, it will help you stand out of others and to appear that you really like the job.

9. Smile
Don't forget to smile and eye contact. A smile gives the impression that you are positive and approachable. This also added confidence. Behavior affects the mind as much as mind affects behavior.

Princess Castle Orphanage in Guatemala: WorkPlayLove (non-profit)

It is estimated there are 153 million orphans around the world according to UNICEF. Many of them are living in orphanages or on the streets. All of them are in need of intensive care. From this, over 370,000 orphans are from Guatemala. Most of these children are product of extreme poverty and abuse. Good thing there are organizations where they can call a safe place and one of these is WorkPlayLove.

Kim, Mike and Steve Meila have been business partners with Legalshield for almost 2 decades. Upon arriving at the Hogar Miguel Magone orphanage in Guatemala, they realized that this is what they had been looking for. A place where they can support and give love to children. Hogar Miguel Magone is an orphanage housing 65 boys. The partners were told by the orphanage's directors that they are planning to build another orphanage for girls next to the boys orphanage. With this, brothers and sisters will never have to split up. This led them to open the second orphanage called Maria Auxiliadora Hogar. After 4 years, with the help of volunteers, it is now housing 35 girls who are all excited because of its princess theme. Maria Auxiliadora Hogar is the only castle orphanage in the world. These girls will never be worried about their safety, food and health.

If you want to help these kids on their daily costs including their food, medicine, teachers and psychiatrists, there is a program called Hogar Hero where you can donate. Your donation will not only cover one child but all the girls and the boys as well.

The Best Real Estate Investments in the Philippines: Uptown Bonifacio

If you are thinking of how to grow your money, then investing in real estate is a good place to start. Real estate investments will provide and secure you a regular income. In order to attain this, you have to make smart choices when buying your real estate. You have to think of places near to a developing city to ensure that you will have a renter.

Uptown Residences is located inside an exclusive 15 hectare internationally planned community by Megaworld which is the leading real estate developer in the Philippines. This 15-hectare community is called Uptown Bonifacio Global City Taguig. Matt's first real estate investment is Uptown Residences, he got a 37 square meter 1 bedroom unit for $136,000. This condominium will be turned over by 2019.     

Uptown Bonifacio as of March 2017

Why I chose the Philippines

Most of the cities in the US are already developed so there is a low return on investment. On the other hand, if you invest in a developing city like the Philippines, there is a big assurance of return investment. The Philippines is also one of the English-speaking countries in the world which is important in conducting meetings, asking for directions, making friends or just making a little conversation. This is also the Asia's fastest growing economy last year, which only means that the conversion of dollars to peso will still be higher. (latest conversion when this article is written: $1 is P50.19) This just shows that this is the perfect time to invest in the Philippines.  

Why I chose Uptown Bonifacio

Development – Megaworld is now building new residential condominiums including the Uptown Residences, mixed-use business and commercial developments. This area is also near the zone where British, Japanese, and American international schools are located.

Safety – Comparing to other cities in the Philippines, in order to enter Bonifacio Global City, people either commute through the designated BGC bus, rented taxis or your own car which makes it more prosper. Also, there are securities on the different area and there are patrolling around the city which is all helpful in terms of security and to assist you with directions.   

Flood-free Zone – Most of the cities in Metro Manila have been experiencing flood for so many years know but now with Bonifacio Global City. BGC is the only and first city in the Philippines with flood prevention. There is a five-story cistern located in Burgos Circle which will collect rainwater and will soon be flushed to Manila Bay. Some of the cities in Metro Manila are planning to adopt this project.

Business Buildings – Uptown Bonifacio is just across the Google Office, Andrew Tan's new Headquarter a known billionaire and owner of Mcdonalds here in the Philippines which will give you an advantage on other residences in terms of future renters. Also, Globe Telecommunication building one of the leading Philippine internet providers is just walking distance from Uptown Bonifacio. And the Philippine Stock Exchange building will be move inside BGC.    

Lifestyle – In terms of social value, three hottest clubs in the Philippines, Valkyrie Nightclub, The Place Pool Club and Revel at the Palace are just across the street from Uptown Bonifacio. There is also a mall inside the community called Uptown Mall and the bottom floors of all Uptown condominium will be malls.


Why invest inside BGC

Now, that different business buildings are built and to be built here the potential of renters will be high sooner. Metro Manila traffic is the worst and it will be hard for employees to commute from their home to work that they will be pushed to rent a condominium where they can stay.
