Melissa Guller, the Head of Special Projects at Teachable, has made a career out of helping people monetize their expertise online. In this episode, Melissa and Hilary discuss tools to create online courses, Melissa's side hustle ventures, and why she swears by a "relaxed" list to avoid burnout.
"Your knowledge has probably a higher price tag than you even realize because people want to know exactly what you did to achieve the result that they want."
"The way that I think about things now as a manager is that I’m always noticing when people make my life easier. You want to be able to show that you’re making your boss’s life easier by doing something great for the company."
"I love to think about your career as the business of you. You are the only person responsible for making sure the business of you is successful...Sometimes you have to make the decision that what’s best for the business of you is a different opportunity, and I’ve been able to increase my salary pretty significantly by not moving laterally but by moving up."
