A Very Cool Way to Make Money
We've all heard about Patreon and PayPal and even the value-for-value model. Those avenues for revenue have been around and talked about for many years. Danielle Desir is going to let us in on one way that isn't used often enough: a paid community membership. When you have a loyal tribe, and you provide great content, don't be surprised when members of your loyal tribe are willing to pay you for that content. Danielle is doing it, and she'll explain how you can launch your paid community membership. She'll detail how you can easily pull in your first 100 members and educate us on how to automate the setup to save time and energy.

Why is this way better than Patreon or PayPal or other forms of payment? We get into the weeds of all these issues with Oscar in this important interview.
