Still feeling overwhelmed when it comes to AI? That’s understandable: this world is new for everyone. But, on the upside, new worlds mean new opportunities, and there is a plethora of options that you can take advantage of at this point in time. Even with my limited knowledge, I’ve already made money with AI, less than two months into learning about these tools. As soon as I saw my first sale, I knew I needed to write this post and share this information with you all. Here’s a quick guide to start making money quickly with AI:
Decide what you want to create. At this early part of the AI revolution, there are many resources and countless options for anyone that’s interested in creating with AI. Future Tools has a list of all of the AI-powered platforms that offer you options for creating new or upgraded income streams. For me, it was more interesting to work with images, which is why I dove into learning how to do AI-generated art. However, it’s possible to create videos, music, website copy, and so much more using AI. If you need a simple list of AI business ideas that have already been tested, check out this Side Hustle Nation’s blog post, where Matt Wolfe (one of my favorite AI gurus) discusses the business options available using AI.
Watch YouTube videos to teach you the skills needed to get your business running. My favorite YouTubers that are discussing AI right now are Matt Wolfe, The AI Advantage, Goda Go, and Maximize. Learning about prompt engineering, large language models and natural language processing, and stable diffusion are great starting points, and, fortunately, you don’t have to be an expert at any of these in order to earn money with these tools. Carve out a bit of time each day to learn something about this new, exciting world, and allow these YouTube teachers to help you.
Start experimenting with what you learn. Work with what you know and see what gives you the best results (pro tip: get very comfortable with ChatGPT: you can use it to create a business strategy that can improve the likelihood of success). Launch and have fun!
If you’ve had a chance to start using AI tools, please let me know. I’d love to hear what you’ve learned so far!
I was hesitant to write this post, because I suspect that most of us have been inundated with information about artificial intelligence (AI). When it comes to new technology, I think most people feel a combination of excitement and overwhelm. With all of the conversation surrounding the capabilities of AI, particularly, ChatGPT, it’s easy to get lost in the sauce and feel like it’s all too much, too fast. The potential to create new income streams is now more accessible than ever, but everyone is (likely) asking the same question:
Overwhelm makes it hard to see how this technology can benefit us. But here’s a simple guide (not written by AI, funny enough) on using ChatGPT to help you with your finances.
Ask financial questions and get pointed, easy-to-understand answers.
Find the “gaps” in your financial plans
Develop plans for income generation
Have the technology create documents, templates or questionnaires that can simplify your financial organization
Create schedules, systems and strategies for money management
There are many other uses for ChatGPT beyond the few mentioned here, but these are good starting points for exploring the capabilities within the platform. The sooner you familiarize yourself with what AI can do, the more skilled you’ll be when it is more widely incorporated into our daily lives. And if you think that you won’t have to be bothered with AI infiltrating your world, or that the integration of AI into our daily lives is far off, here’s a video from 1995, at the beginning of the Internet era. Just because something starts off unclear, doesn’t mean that it won’t one day be our norm.
That’s all for today: look out for more ChatGPT content in future posts. Take care!
