I don't see anything wrong with it.
If there is a need, and someone want to pay for a service, so be it.
Good luck with it

You could charge for it (just not to me )

Like any service: sometimes is done for money, others for serving the community, and at times for both.

I've been to the dentist for free, yet I've had to pay 60/hr for mindfuness meditation session. Who makes sense of that. hehehe

If you put together a decent distillation of ideas and advice and compiled it into a pdf book, as they seem to have done, it would be worth $20 for those not wanting to trawl through forums.

It's how we used to do it before we had the internet. I would spend a fortune on specialist books and magazines.

I agree itís a tacky cash grab, I have seen a few companies pop up that do conversions for money.

I hope skoolies donít go the way the tiny house thing did.

He's got a business building skoolies now. I think he's only done a couple. Three if you count his own. Now he has a book. I don't think he's an expert, just an entrepreneur. (Discovering Us Bus...Missy Conversions)
In this video https://youtu.be/wMqQKI7azR0 she explains the reason for buying and converting a school bus....the video is dated Jan 2016.
So, it's not that he's an expert and has been in the business a long while but just trying to start a business and the thing to bring in more money is an e-course.
