If you are an entrepreneur, freelancer, author, coach or career professional who has been struggling to figure out how to earn extra income on the side, or if you want to turn your passion into a full time income, then keep reading. Below, I'll share with you the easiest solution to overcome all of these challenges by creating and selling valuable and profitable online courses. 

Are you tired of Sunday nights spent dreading the work week?

Do you dream of passive income from online courses, but keep talking yourself out of it?

Are you looking to get into online business but don’t know where to start?

Have you launched an online course, but aren’t getting the results you expected?

Whatever your background may be, if you’ve ever thought about turning your knowledge, your unique gifts and your passion into a profitable online course, then you’ve come to the right place!

Look — there’s no doubt that you have valuable insight to share with your tribe. But that doesn’t automatically guarantee that you can connect with them and get what you’ve created in front of them. And even if you do, there’s no guarantee that your course is packaged in a way that’ll engage them and convert them into buyers.

To do all of that — and make money — you need a lot more than empty promises and hot air.

You need a plan.

You need a step-by-step guide that will walk you through every aspect of creating a course for people that’s irresistible, valuable and — most importantly — profitable.

That’s exactly what this course is.

The Internet is full of “experts” — but most of them are wrong.

It seems like every day there's a new training, free guide, or blog post promising that you can make a gazillion dollars if you just buy this product. There’s no shortage of training courses teaching the tactical tools and techniques to create and sell an online course.

While that’s extremely valuable and a necessary part of any course creation and promotion, just knowing the mechanics of doing something doesn’t guarantee you’ll be successful at it.

This missing component is the reason so many course creators fail at making their courses profitable.

This course is different — over 60,000 students is the proof.

In the last two years my husband Joe and I have been able to earn a generous 6-figure monthly income running an online business and creating and selling online courses. By implementing the strategies I teach in this course, Joe’s courses have enrolled over 60,000 students, earning him Udemy’s best seller instructor status.

All you need to create, launch and profit.

This comprehensive training program provides absolutely everything you'll need to successfully launch your own online business, courses and programs and profit from them.

From figuring out what you should be teaching to positioning, pricing and marketing, I'll walk you through everything you need to know to create and launch a unique course that customers will happily pay premium fees for... and we'll work together to do it, step-by-step.

You won't find anything here that hasn't worked for me or my clients! This is hands-on, action-taking, make-it-happen training.

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone who wants to start getting paid for their content and expertise!
  • Anyone who believes they have a useful, valuable message and/or expertise to pass on to others who can put it to use.
  • Anyone who’s never created an online course, but really wants to!
  • Anyone who’s created an online course that hasn’t succeeded as expected.
  • Anyone looking to position themselves as an authority in their chosen field.

If you have no idea what industry to tackle, the very first place to start is to focus your attention inward and see what you’re good at! Here are the questions to ask yourself to truly figure out where your natural talents lie.

What Are You Good At?

Your customers and clients buy YOU first! Find out why it's absolutely critical that your full heart and soul are in what you do (and how to make sure it is).

What Do You Love Doing?

There's more than one way to figure out what people want most from you — and plenty of excellent alternatives to traditional, expensive market research. 

In this video I'll show you how to use Google Trends to evaluate the potential demand for your course, look at niche opportunities that exist around it and get an idea of demand for those niches.

What Does The Market Want? (Part 01 - Google Trends)

Here you'll learn to use Google's Keyword Planner tool to identify what keywords your audience uses when they search within your particular niche — especially the terms related to their problems, pain points or deepest desires.

This information will not only tell you what topics your audience cares about most, it will tell you whether or not there is enough profit potential in your chosen niche.

What Does The Market Want? (Part 02 - Keyword Planning)

One of the easiest ways to get a handle on what people need, want and expect is by researching your competition. In this video I'll share some absolute goldmine places to see and hear what people want, in their own words. You'll see why competitive research is a lot simpler than it sounds!

What Does The Market Want? (Part 03 - Your Competition)

Find out the common reasons people give in to their fears, settle for where they are and never follow their dreams — and learn how to avoid these traps!

A Word of Advice (and Encouragement): You can DO this!

In this exercise, these dreams form the basis for reality! I'll show you how to brainstorm the name of your online course and determine your ideal number of enrollments per month — along with the desired revenue you’d like to generate.
