Description

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 training 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 50,000 students is the proof.

In the last two years my husband Joe and I have been able to earn a generous 5-figure monthly income creating and selling online courses. By implementing the strategies I teach in this course, Joe’s courses have enrolled over 50,000 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 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 is the target audience?
  • 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.

Business and Entrepreneurial Growth Coach

Hey there! My name is Eli.

(Like “Ellie,” but spelled in a way that, while quite cool, tends to make people think I’m a guy ;-)

I’m a tolerable wife, “kindasilly” mom, food aficionado and oh — PASSIONATE about all things online marketing! I find all of it fascinating, stimulating, and even FUN!

Seriously, I’m obsessed with teaching serious Entrepreneurs grow their businesses faster and take them much further than ever before.

How did this become my life?

Back in 2012, my husband and I were running a software design and development firm called Twofold, designing and building apps, websites and large systems.

Although I had lots of flexibility working and raising my kids from home, I didn’t feel very passionate about it. To be honest, I couldn’t stand waking up on any morning that didn’t begin with the letter ‘S.’

So in my free time, I started entertaining myself with other things, and that was when I became fascinated with online information marketing, especially the passive income part of it.

So, I started my own blog (Webjenius) as a simple creative outlet, in hopes of getting my feet wet with online marketing. I had no ambitions of making it my full-time job. Heck, I wasn’t even aware it COULD be my full-time job.

Fast forward one year, and the potential of generating money from what I loved doing was suddenly VERY real. My husband and I decided to move away from project work and shift our business to exclusively launching online products — in other words, passive income.

My husband Joe is a User Experience (UX) consultant. Acting as his business and marketing coach, I guided and collaborated with him to create our first product, an online course.

We’ve worked together to launch five additional online training courses and two books, with more on the way in 2017. We currently have over 50,000 students taking those courses, and our products are returning six-figure revenue — consistently.

Crazy, right?

Maybe, but the writing on the wall was clear. So I’ve completely moved over to online education: teaching aspiring entrepreneurs how to start and grow their own businesses.

I want to help you build a profitable online business, too!

I’m here to serve you. Through my free content — along with my coaching and paid training programs — I’m here to help you build a life that you truly love. A life that is one of a kind, uniquely and brilliantly tailored for you.

I work with people just like you: creative, passionate entrepreneurs and small business owners who are insanely good at what they do. And the one thing they all share is a struggle to generate consistent cash flow. That’s because they’ve never been shown the right way to attract clients or have truly successful sales conversations.

I love empowering, motivating, inspiring and, ultimately, coaching! And while I’ve certainly made good money, there is simply nothing more satisfying for me than to know I’ve been able to reach out, extend my hand and help someone else reach their dreams.

But listen up — I can’t help you if you’re looking for a method to get rich quick!

Hell, even sharp shooters and gangsters work hard to earn money!

Look, I really do get it. Making money on autopilot is what attracted me to information marketing in the first place.

And, of course, I have consistent passive income coming in every day, and all of it is on autopilot. But it’s taken a LOT of hard work, lots and lots of 12 and 14-hour days and many caffeinated late nights – banging my head against the wall, cursing in languages I had no idea I could speak!

But it was SO worth it, and I wouldn’t trade one minute. Because now I have the ability to do whatever the hell I want, whenever the hell I want. And I have the knowledge and skill to help YOU do it too.

So if you want to make a million dollars as an entrepreneur, that’s pretty cool. It’s also entirely achievable

But it's not going to happen without a lot of effort and energy.

I’m truly thrilled you’re here, and I salute you on taking the first step toward the life you deserve.
