Why teaching is better than doing

Note – This article was an email that was sent out to my subscribers on 16th July, 2021. To become a subscriber for my future emails, you can fill up the form at the end of this article. I send emails related to my current experiences in the Online Coaching industry, lessons related to digital marketing and even some raw and hard hitting personal development advice (no woo-woo stuff).

No matter what your profession is, you can earn more by teaching in it than doing it.

If you are an immigration lawyer servicing clients, you can make more by creating a course that teaches people how to get a PR/Green card.

If you are a photographer, you can earn 10X by teaching photography than doing it (personal experience speaking here)

If you are a stock trader, you can earn more by creating a stock trading course.

If you are a cook, you can earn more by creating a cooking course (even Sanjeev Kapoor went into teaching)

I can go on and on but you get the point.

But why is this the case?

Simply because teaching is easily scalable (especially with online courses and webinars).

For example, if I’m a photographer, I can only get paid for my time since my service depends on my presence and execution. But If I’m selling a photography course, I can sell the same course to the entire world.

The only industry that is similar to this is the SaaS (Software as a Service) industry but it’s way more complicated to execute than creating an online course and selling it.

So the next time someone tells you “Those who can’t do, teach!“, just say “Wellthose who can, should too!
