How to Start a Side Hustle Creating Coloring Books with ChatGPT
2 min read
Last year, I created I Am Unbreakable, a WOC Adult Affirmation Coloring Book. It took me over 30 days to create, format and finally upload to Amazon. If I had access to AI, or my new newsletter, The Peripheral, it would have taken me less time. Good thing for you that now you can create this same book in less than 10 minutes.
Coloring for Mood-Boosting: Studies have shown that coloring can be a great way to reduce stress and boost your mood. It provides an escape from the stresses of everyday life, allowing you to focus your energy on expressing yourself through art. Coloring requires full concentration and encourages self-expression which can help build self-confidence and make you feel better about yourself. This combination of positive emotions can help reduce overall stress levels.
Coloring for Brain Health: Coloring isn't just good for your mood; it can also benefit your brain health by improving mental agility, decreasing cognitive decline, and even acting as a natural antidepressant. By focusing on one task (coloring) at a time, you can train your brain to become more efficient at tasks that require quick decisions or problem-solving skills. Furthermore, because coloring requires full concentration it helps activate both sides of the brain simultaneously which increases creativity and imagination while helping decrease the risk of cognitive decline in later years.
Coloring for Synergy: One great benefit of combining coloring books with affirmations is that it creates a similar state in the brain as that of meditation. While saying "I AM" affirmations out loud, stimulates the production of dopamine which makes life joyous, pleasurable and abundant with positive energy. Affirmations also help increase confidence and self-esteem which are important aspects when it comes to achieving success in any area of life.
ChatGPT + MidJourney
There is an AI software called MidJourney. It creates images from the prompts you give it.
In MidJourney, you can use the "coloring book" prompt to create black-and-white images. You can create a series of these images in a specific genre, collate them into a book and publish it on Amazon.
So, instead of always paying Amazon for things, now you can have Amazon pay you for the beautiful books you create with AI.
