Teaching insurance courses online!
Yes, it is I once again - the procrastinator and/or skeptic when it comes to setting up an online business..............but, my teaching assignments have dwindled down to "none, zip, nada, zero this year and while they were not huge money makers, they did supplement our retirement income so that we could still make various trips each year (remember our latest escapade).
Anyways, I just got done reading many of the comments made by others that have taken the SBI plunge and got to wondering if perhaps (since I could not come up with a "niche" so to speak - since I had been in the insurance business from 1963 to 1996 and then 10 to 12 years of teaching property and casualty insurance after that) I could set up a site related to teaching insurance online.
Since you have been my guru throughout the past few years when it came to various online possibilities one could involve themselves as they pertain to having fun in retirement and quite possibly make some money in the process and by the way, I am in no way, shape or form looking to get rich overnight from such an endeavor.
Truth be told that I sort of miss the teaching, the students responses and so forth and their praise (at times some did write me when they finally achieved their insurance designations) that I got to thinking - hmmm, where are these individuals getting their training if not through the facility I was teaching for.
Perhaps I could provide such a service and if from home or on the road (wouldn't want to give up our travels) and earn a few extra bucks while doing it - so much the better.
Perhaps I might become a source for them to turn to with regards learning more about the Property and Casualty insurance business or, if nothing else, how to study and prepare for the various exams they must take to complete the program. What do you think?
I know you are having a ball setting up your various online businesses and that it is a way for you to supplement your retirement income and you seem to be having such fun doing it, I am getting jealous and antsy at the same time. I need to make a commitment and follow it through while I am still fit and able to do so. Your comments would be greatly appreciated.
