Shawn Hesketh is the creator of WP101, an online library and learning resource, for WordPress.
When you don’t want to spend the time training your clients, or answering the pesky support e-mails, you use a service like WP101. Shawn and his team tirelessly script, record, edit, produce, and publish top-notch training materials for the newcomer to the WordPress world.
Sounds like easy money to me.
