A family member wanted me to help them once. I decided that I would help them get everything off of the ground and teach them what they needed to know. Before I put a lot of effort into it, I decided to see how interested they really were.
I asked them to do a really simple task and get back to me. I don't remember what the task was, it was just to see if this could hold their attention. Perhaps it was register for a free blogger account and send me the link or something. I don't know, but whatever it was, they didn't do it and I was glad I added that little step before I spent a bunch of time helping someone that just wanted a check handed to them.
I don't think this is a biz that you can teach unless you are teaching someone who is already in it. This is for self starters. But there's always an exception I guess.
