Online education is not a path to passive income.

Because ‘education’ implies teaching, and teaching implies presence. Passiveness and presence aren’t like yin and yang. They’re more like gravity and a hot dog, two things that couldn’t be more unlike.

The electricity of the online education movement is threatened by the hustlers. It takes a sharp focus and the will to move mountains to deliver an online course that doesn’t waste people’s time. But the flywheel of hustlers is built on exactly that: money earned from wasted time.
