Arrghh the first video: Renting out your possessions.

So last week I decided to make a video, instead of writing a post. This was a big thing for me, as I am super nervous in front of the camera. I procrastinated for most of the week then made the video and then promptly got sick so I couldn't quite finish it. So apologies this was meant to go up on Friday. In this video I give you a bit of an overview of why I am doing this experiment, and [...]

Singing to Success: How Felicia Ricci’s Udemy Courses Helped Her Trade in Her Desk Job

Written for the Udemy Blog by Lusa Selvaggio. 

Felicia Ricci has always had a passion for singing and performing. Despite landing the roles of Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady and Elphaba in Wicked, though, she had to keep working a regular desk job to make ends meet. 

Unable to let go of her love of music and of teaching others how to sing, Felicia decided to connect with students online by creating singing courses and tutorials that are easy to follow, fun to watch, and truly transformative. But, again, this was all done alongside her full-time job as a copywriter. 

Little did Felicia know that, in a mere year’s time, her Belt Your Face Off course and her Singing Transformation course (available 2-3 times per year) would earn roughly $45,000—enough of a salary to give her the freedom to leave her desk job, become self-employed, and start singing her way to success with thousands of students.
