If you know that online teaching is the right move for you but you don’t know how to get started, this course is for you!
If you have volumes of wisdom to share with a global audience and want to create online courses to spread your knowledge, this course is for you.
Are you in the mind/body/spirit field working as a healer, coach or consultant and want to take your in-person business to an online platform?
Are you tried of trading time for money and want to create passive income streams with online courses?
Are you ready to start spreading your most-important message to a worldwide audience and get paid handsomely while you’re at it?
Then you’ve come to the right place!
As a Reiki Master and Holistic Life Coach I know how hard it can be to see one client at a time and I’m here to show you an easier way. One where you won’t have to give up your private practice, if you choose to continue seeing one-on-one clients. With what I’m about to show you, not only can you keep your in-person practice but I will show you how to create passive income streams while building your practice with even more clients that are willing to pay generously for your wisdom and knowledge.
It’s time to bring your knowledge to an online platform. Say it once, set it and ‘forget’ it. Share your wisdom so what you have to teach is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and to a global audience. Or perhaps you’re not currently seeing face-to-face clients and simply want to build an online practice with your healing and coaching techniques?
I left the corporate world more than 12 years ago to become a consultant and later a coach and workshop leader. I’ve been teaching small and large groups in person as well as online for over a decade. I have thousands of students and am one of Udemy’s best-selling instructors. I create and publish courses in 3-5 days and I still run a global coaching business.
I look forward to helping you spread your message while helping you generate multiple, generous and passive streams of income.

This video will talk about the many reasons why creating online courses is essential in any healer's or coach's business.

Are you afraid that creating an online course will take too much time? Don't be. It's faster than you think and the rewards can last for years! In this video lecture I will talk about how long it takes to create a course. We'll also talk about how long is "too long" because I want to help you avoid any procrastination tendencies or analysis paralysis.
Courses that are too long can be a burden to you and your students. Courses have a fine silver lining to being "just right." In this lecture I talk about what "too long" and "too short" and "just right" is as far as course length is concerned. Should your course be 30 minutes long or 30 hours long? Watch this video to find out.

Income Potential With Online Courses.
I love using mindmaps. They are easy to use and very flexible and they keep me organized like nothing else. In this video I will take you into my mindmapping software and show you how to create a course outline.
This is the second part of using a mindmap. I am showing you here how easy it is to move 'branches' around and to restructure and plan out your course. One of the reasons I love mindmapping is because I can drop and drag branches as I am making changes to the course outline. If I were to use a notepad with handwritten notes, I wouldn't have this flexibility.
This is another way of using a mindmapping software. This is the third way of using a mindmapping software. I want to present you will several options because I know we have students here on different budget levels and with different skill level.
For those of you who prefer to use sticky notes, here is an easy way to use a color coding system and sticky notes and your table or your wall. Instead of using a mindmapping software or the Udemy back office course creation module, you can also use colored sticky notes to organizing your course thoughts. Using sticky notes is better than using a notepad because it allows you to move sticky notes around and re-organizing your lectures and sections.
You can also use the Udemy platform to creating your course outline. Udemy's back office is quite intuitive and very, very easy to use. It's all about pushing a few buttons, uploading videos and writing a few articles and you have your own course created right here on this platform.
Here is Udemy's Word document for you to create your course outline. In this video I am taking you behind the scenes into my Udemy office

Let's take a quick review.
Structure and organization have are hugely influential in creating successful courses. You may wonder if you can just create a few videos and talk into the camera and then voila, you have a course. No, it's not quite that easy. Successful courses have structure and they make points. Let's review how to create structure so your students will feel truly guided by your online course material.
One of the most important lectures of this entire course is to learn about features and benefits. Even large corporations sometimes get these two mixed up. If you can learn to "talk benefits" and pay less attention to features, you will start to talk differently to people even with your current job or your current clients. Learning to "speak benefits" is essential in creating your course description, your course title and your overall course modules.

You may wonder: "Where do you get those pictures from that you use in your videos?" I travel quite a bit and along the way I take a few pictures and videos, which I get to share with you here.

As a best-selling Udemy instructor with more than a dozen online courses, I also run the Core Freedom Academy with over 14,000 students worldwide, and I am ready to share what I know.
I have been a public speaker, workshop leader and online course creator for more than 14 years. I've spoken on stage with Robert Kiyosaki (author of Rich Dad Poor Dad) and also taught at the Learning Annex in San Francisco for over three years.
I teach courses in the field of professional and personal development and new courses are constantly being developed.
Today I draw on my further education as a metaphysician, holistic life coach, certified hypnotist and trained grief and suicide hotline counselor. I’m also a non-denominational ordained minister, a Reiki Master and I teach courses in EFT (emotional freedom technique) and dowsing.
It all started in the world of business. I’ve worked for the Swiss Government and Private Banking Industry, before moving to Silicon Valley putting together teams for technology start-up companies. A tragic loss in 2006 left me homeless for 7 months while I withdrew from society to reinvent myself and my life.
The courses I teach today come from my school of hard-knocks.
I’m a huge fan of living the mobile lifestyle. Less is indeed more and being able to live wherever I want to is possible thanks to being an online instructor. My life lessons are woven into all of my courses.
