Gather Your Family And Friends Around The Couch For Your Movie Premiere

One of the best feelings in the world is when you finish editing a movie you're proud of and you gather your friends and family around the couch to see the premiere. When the movie starts to play I guarantee you will become giddy in your seat and want to jump out of your chair :)

Editing your own videos is one of the most satisfying hobbies I know of. You will be pleasantly surprised with how much creativity comes out when you start editing your own videos.

In this course you will go from complete beginner with iMovie to confident in your ability to create your own movies that you will be proud of. 

Apple Has A Knack For Balancing Beautiful, Easy To Use Products That Are Capable Of Serious Work

If you don't have any experience with video editing before iMovie is the best piece of software to start with (keep in mind, it's only for Mac users!). iMovie is the easiest video editing software to use but it's also loaded with great features. 

Since you're a Mac user you know how much time and effort Apple spends balancing their products to be beautiful, easy-to-use and capable of serious work. iMovie is no different. In fact, iMovie is one of the pieces of software Apple has spent the most time refining.

iMovie is a breeze to use and learn and with it you will be amazed at the videos you can create. It will take some work and practice on your part. Then, once you learn how to use the software and become comfortable with it, it's a skill you will have for life. 

Editing Films Could Easily Become Your Next Favorite Hobby (I Know It's Mine!)

As I'm typing this it's hard for me to express how truly fun and satisfying editing movies is! I wish I could share this feeling with you through these words but you will have to start editing to experience it yourself. 

It could soon become your favorite hobby! And you will create living memories (videos) that you and your family will not only enjoy watching now but 5, 10 years from now could make for cherished memories :) 

I've worked hard to share my passion for video editing and explain how to use iMovie in the simplest way possible. In the basic editing section of this course you will get up-to-speed with editing your first movie in no time. Then I've added 3 advanced sections to teach you the iMovie skills that I guarantee 90%+ of the people who use iMovie have no idea exist!

These advanced editing techniques, advanced video effects and advanced audio effects will deeply unleash your creativity and take your videos to the next level! 

Get Ready To Experience Flow State While Editing Your Videos

So excited to have you join this course and express your creativity while creating living memories. If you've ever experienced a taste of flow state before you are going to be blown away by editing! 

I get in flow state more often from editing videos than any other activity I can think of. (If you've never heard of flow state before it is the feeling where you are so absorbed in a task that's challenging but not overwhelming that you lose your sense of time and self).

Anyway, enough of me blabbing. Hope to see you inside this course and when you finish your videos make sure to share them with me here on Udemy!

Have a great day,

Is Society's New Way of Learning Giving You "Information Overload Hangovers?"

Trying to learn anything in today's world looks easy.

With one Google search you can find unlimited information about anything you want.

It sounds great, and in many ways it is. But man does it get tiring! 

Too many options makes you think that there is always something better out there. 

You want to learn how teach an online course? Great! Let the fun begin..

Do you read the 10+ articles on Google? Do you watch the most viewed videos on Youtube? Or do you take an online course about how to create an online course?

You say, "I want to learn from this online course!"

The promotional video and the reviews get you excited. 

"Everyone is talking about how amazing this course is!" They say, "After this, you'll find creating online courses incredibly easy."

You got your notepad and pen ready. You wait until your fresh in the morning to start. On your desk is a warm cup of coffee. You're ready to dive in.

You play that first video and WOAH! You start learning all of these valuable nuggets of information. 

The notebook is quickly filling up with notes. You have a secret urge to share what your learning with someone you know. 

It's so fascinating!

Learning Information can be Addicting 

In the moment, it makes you feel like you're growing. Like anything is possible.

But, just like a heavy night of drinking, information overload gives you a crippling hangover. 

After you have a notebook filled with pages and pages of notes, you feel lost. 

When the course, the video, the blog post is over, it makes you ask yourself: what's next? 

At this point we tell ourselves, "I just have to learn more!"

Sound familiar?

I call it: The Information Hamster Wheel

It's time to step off the hamster wheel. Real growth happens when we take action on when we learn.

We don't truly grow or learn anything until we do it ourselves! That is why you always hear people say, Action is the Best Teacher

But we know this already...

And yet we don't take Action. All of this incredible information is not turning into anything real. 

And we know we should be taking action. But for some strange reason, we can't.

-We have no idea where to start

-We look at all of the people that are successful doing what we want to do ("I can never do that")

-We get distracted 

-We decide we need to learn more first

Why Does Taking Action Feel Like Your Alone in a Dark Cave?

Learning any new skill is like walking through a dark cave. On your own it is new, hard to see and scary.

When your taking an online course, you are guided by someone with a flashlight. They are saying, "I know the way. Come follow me!" 

They walk you through the cave and show you all of the amazing scenery and sights. 

Once the course, the video, the blog post is over your guide has left. It is just you in the dark cave now, alone. 

You pull out the flashlight app on your phone. The tiny light helps you see the edges of the cave, but you can hardly see anything. 

The fearful thoughts begin to enter your mind, "I'm in way over my head," "I can't do this," "I should stick to something I already know how to do well."

Okay, enough with the cave. 

You need a guide that leads you through taking Action! 

Someone that will tell you, step-by-step, exactly what to do. 

Someone that will call you out if you're not taking Action. 

Someone that doesn't leave you after they 'give you' information.

Take Action-Backed Courses

My role is to be your Action guide. 

In my courses you are not going to be left in the cave alone. 

Instead you will learn the important information and then I will walk you through the actions. 

In each of my action-backed videos I give you 1 task to complete and then show you EXACTLY how to complete that task.

By the end of my course you will not have another notebook full of notes. Instead you will have taken Action and accomplished the course goal.
