A sampling of the freelance gigs or product creation that you might take on as a sketchnoting side hustle.

Come behind the scenes of my side hustle.


Last year I began writing on Medium, where I weave sketchnotes into written essays.

The first essay I published to Medium.

I enjoy writing as a tool to reflect on how I live and work.


I'm excited to continue building out that passion project as my own side hustle, and within this course I'll be reflecting on what I learn from that process.


Build and learn alongside other sketchnoters.


You're not the only sketchnoter who has heard the phrase "Those notes are so cool! How much would you charge to create something like that for me?"

You're not the only sketchnoter who wants to create prints, write books, and make videos.

You're not the only sketchnoter who wants to turn their creative skills into real dollars.

Merge your sketchnoting skills with your long-term interests to create a side hustle that strengthens your financial security.

The purpose of this course is to gather together those sketchnoters who want to start earning an income from their creative work.

If that sounds exciting to you, I hope you'll join us.
