What Can I Teach You?

Last week on this blog I talked about the career that up until now has dominated my business life. Health care finance can pay well. It’s also a very fickle business though.

looking professorial!

I talked about how I needed to find a better business model instead of constantly beating my head against a wall. The wall I’ve been banging my head against is inflexible; it one I’ve had no control over.

Then I closed with “We should learn how to live the life we want instead of the life we think we should be living. And if we can make money that way… then why not?”

This is the beginning of “why not”. For a big part of it, I’m reaching out to y’all, the masses (well, let’s see about those masses), to see how I can help “us” (this guy Greg is going to hate me for all the quotation marks lol).

Here’s the deal. Below are categories of things I’m pretty proficient at; some of them I’d not hesitate to say I’m expert on them. Although I’m going to create products and such of all of them at some point, what I’m looking for is some feedback on what a majority of you might want to see me create that you’d actually pay for.

So you know, part of this is based off the book Ask that I reviewed back in June. It’s main premise is that we sometimes need to ask our audience what it is they’re looking for, that they’d be willing to pay for if they knew the information they were getting was going to be top quality, then building off that.

I’m not totally following the whole thing because part of my purpose is different. I’m looking for the “feel good” part of things as much as I am the “make money” part of things. I’m tired of just marketing to a group that doesn’t want to talk to me; I want to market and talk to people who not only will talk back, but at some point say “You know, I’m going to check out this thing that Mitch put together.”

This is a major test of my social media marketing skills. To that effort, I putting something similar to this on three of my other blogs as well. Not only that, but I’m going to post about this topic pretty much every single day this week on each of those 4 blogs, changing a little bit of it up here and there. On Thursday for this blog I’ll have a different post, just to break things up (and because I think it’s a pretty good idea), and on Friday on my business blog I’ll have a different type of post, back on one of my proficiencies.

The first thing I’ll ask of you is to vote on something below; that is, once I put it down there. The second thing I’ll ask if for you to share this post, or any of the other posts I write this week, with your peeps. I think the more people who participate in this, the better opportunity I have to make the right choice as to what comes first.

Then again, if I don’t reach the goal on any of them… my decision at that point.

Let’s get to it. Below are 9 categories of things I’m very proficient in; yes, someone can actually be good at more than one thing. Under a couple of them, I’ve broken the category down slightly further than the main category.

The first thing I need is for you to pick one thing; one choice per person. You can leave your request on the blog, or you can send me an email to mitch@imjustsharing.

The second thing I need is for you to pick how you’d like the training delivered to you. One of these I’ve put in there in case local folks participate in amazing numbers; gotta have hope right? Or, if you believe you’d able to pull something together that could get me to come to where you are and get paid for it… even better.

The reward? Other than what I promise will be a top flight lesson, the first idea that has five people select it and the way it’s delivered, I’ll pick 1 person from that group to receive that training for free. If I get 20 people eventually under that same selection, I’ll give away 2 more free trainings.

At some point, if I don’t reach an agreed upon number, I’ll probably take the top 3 and run this again. As I said, I’m putting this out on 4 blogs, and since each blog addresses something different, you might think that picking something on this blog would be a snap… but you just never know… not everything below is something that’s covered on this blog. Who knows, some of you might learn something new about me from the choices below 🙂

These are the areas you have to select from (categories are underlined):


Business blogging
blogging for money
blog writing
article writing for others

Social Media

benefits and dangers of social media
social media marketing tips
YouTube & video basics


How to motivate yourself
Motivating Others

Self Employment


Being A Better Leader
Training Others To Be Leaders


Customer Service

How to provide good customer service
Training others to be good at customer service

Personal Budgeting

Hospital Revenue Cycle

Medical Billing techniques
Understanding Charge Master
Understanding the Revenue Cycle

Now, method of delivery:

Udemy course
Email course
Live seminar
1 on 1 training (in person, Skype, Google Hangout, phone)

Remember, only one per person. If you mention more than one, you have to tell me which one is first. You don’t even have to promise me you’ll buy; I just want to know which one you find the most important to you, and how you’d prefer it to be delivered.

I thank everyone in advance for participating and sharing this post, or any of my other posts from any of my other blogs regarding this. Onward and upward!

    1. You said that on the other blog also. lol Since the basic idea is something I can charge people for, going via YouTube isn’t a viable option… and not one I gave you a choice of. 🙂

  1. For me it would be YouTube and video basics via a webinar. I’d like to see how to do various things in YouTube, like combining / splicing two videos or adding text to them etc.

    1. Thanks Rasheed. I haven’t done much with splicing or editing I have to admit. I know how to add text, though I haven’t done it. Thanks for your idea; fully appreciated it. Please share; let’s get more people involved!

    1. Once again, not an option because I don’t have an iPhone and Mitchell doesn’t do “i” nothing! lol However, there are other places where I could do something like that… although if it were paid I’d have to market them as individual files.

  2. Hey Mitch, I’m not one to pay for this type of service, but if I was going to outlay many for one of those it would have to be the Blogging For Money one. I’m finding that one pretty hard to crack 😉

    As for method of delivery it would have to be one on one as I don’t do well in groups. If I was to attend a seminar I’d more than likely be too intimidated to ask questions.

    1. I’ve always found that incredible about you Pete. You’ve been online for more than 10 years, you’ve been all over the place and commented on tons of blogs and talked to a lot of people online. You even had your own business and have some videos up. Yet you’re kind of a “back of the room” guy because of shyness (whereas I’m a back of the room guy because I don’t want to be bothered lol) and I doubt anyone would expect that of you.

      Still, your vote is solid because it covered both options so I thank you for that… though I’m thinking coming to Australia for 1 on 1 training probably isn’t happening. lol

  3. Damn, that was supposed to be money not many in the comment above. DOH!

    All the things I do online I can do because it doesn’t involve personal contact. I have to admit I produced that first video with real trepidation but it got easier to do the more I made.

    I’m fine if someone approached me and started a conversation, although it may peter out pretty quick 😉

  4. Motivation, leadership, and customer service (in that order, or any combination thereof)

    Delivery method: YouTube, email course, 1:1 (in that order). I like the blogs; I rarely sit still for a podcast, though my personal coach suggested I queue them up on my phone and listen while I get my steps in.

  5. Hey Mitch,

    You know you can make youtube videos private that are only available to those whose email is included in their ability to see it.

    So you can use YouTube to deliver your training, you just have to send the private link to those who pay for it.

  6. Hey Mitch,

    I read your post the other day when you mentioned it to me but I had to give it some thought. I wanted to be sure and share my honest opinion with you first.

    I know you’re frustrated with what you do as your offline career and as long as you’ve been online you should be doing something that can start building you a business.

    I’m seriously though going to recommend once again that you take that free consultation time and speak with Don. I think that some of your issues have been wanting to do things your way which of course I can appreciate but when it comes to building a business you have to do things a little differently.

    As far as everything you’ve listed, I can’t really think of anything that I would pay for at this time. That’s really what I base my spending habits on when it comes to learning. It’s what I need at the time or what I’ve been dying to learn.

    I know in most of the comments you’ve been going back and forth about putting videos on YouTube but you can teach how to do certain things in YouTube without putting them on YouTube. You can actually host the videos someplace else. It’s something to consider. I host the audios I have for my course on Amazon and your first year is free. After that it’s really cheap.

    I know I’m not much help, sorry about that but I would love to see you come online and succeed. I’m rooting for you my friend.

    1. Thanks for your input Adrienne. As I initially said, I wasn’t expecting anyone to guarantee that they would buy; it’s kind of a marketing experiment based on the book I mentioned. Still, it’s been illuminating and I actually have picked up some ideas while examined some other things. I’m closer than anyone might imagine, other than myself, to a decision on what I’m going to do. Baby steps, as long as I push forward right? 🙂
