Today we’d love to ask you two questions.
The first one is for fun. The second one is more serious.
First: if you could have any skill or knowledge, what would it be?
Anything goes here, as long as it’s humanly possible. No superpowers. If you think x-ray vision might be humanly possible, that’s fine, but please explain why in your answer
Next: what specific skills or knowledge are you working to gain right now?
List up to three if you’re working on multiple things at once.
Then, here’s a follow-up question (and something for you to ponder):
If your answers to question #1 and #2 are the same, congrats on “walking the walk.” Do you think your sights are set high enough?
If your answers are different, why aren’t you working towards what you answered in question #1?
Thanks for sharing, I can’t wait to hear your answers.
Also, if you answer the questions, please share this post with a friend or on Twitter or Facebook. We’d love to get as many answers to this question as possible with your help.
Calling All Creative Entrepreneurs, Writers, Makers, Coders and Artists
For a limited time, get access to over 100 hours of video training, plus The Web’s most active entrepreneurial community, for just $1.
Turning your skills and expertise into a way to support yourself is more doable than you might think.
There’s this big misconception about expertise, that you have to be one of the world’s top experts before you can earn a living from what you know.
But expertise isn’t an absolute. You might only be a 3, on a scale of 1 to 10, but there are plenty of 1’s and 2’s out there who would pay for your knowledge and experience, right now.
The key is to find a unique corner of your topic, to start building a tribe of people who trust you as their expert, not the expert, and to be resourceful about filling in the gaps by leveraging other experts when necessary.
This is why we built Fizzle, to teach you how to support yourself independently doing what you love on The Web. Fizzle is half training library, half supportive community, and it’s full of people like you who are building their thing online.
You’ll find big name courses in Fizzle, from well known and successful online business builders. We’re talking about courses like Book Yourself Solid (Michael Port), Start a Blog that Matters (Corbett Barr), and Connect With Anyone (Scott Dinsmore). And new courses are added every month.
And right now, you can get access to everything Fizzle offers, including the course library, the community, the live coaching sessions and the behind-the-scenes Founder Stories, all for just $1 for your first month.
Since applying more and more from Fizzle, I’ve started making as much (sometimes more/month) from my online business as I do from my full-time job with a fraction of the weekly hours. It’s exhilarating. I owe you guys so much.

P.S. — we hope you’ll check Fizzle out, but we know it isn’t for everyone. We’re a little, um, different from your typical “business” training. Watch the video on the home page to see what I’m talking about. If it isn’t your style, no hard feelings :)
