Excellent Course For The Beginner Looking to Teach Online

New and aspiring Udemy instructors!

I will show you the exact method to launch your first online program this week. 

Turn your knowledge into a leveraged online course and add significant amounts of revenue into your bank account each month. Interested?  


I really like Patrick's course and teaching style. He is easily one of the most enjoyable and informative instructors I've learned from on Udemy and I've taken hundreds of courses.

This course is delivered with just the right pace, the information is laid out in digestible pieces and the production quality is great. Patrick is also very engaging and easy to listen to.

Some of the courses I've taken on Udemy are difficult to get through. They have 15 minute lectures with about 3 minutes of actual content. That is the exact opposite of what you will find in this course. The lectures are short, informative and punchy.

I highly recommend this course. - Ken

Great Content for the Newbie!

I'm working on my first course and I found Patrick's course very helpful. I found actionable tips and insights throughout that I am using to guide my own work and will save me time. Patrick responds quickly to questions and is truly there to help. Time and money well spent folks and I'm happy to give him five stars! -Shawn

Great course and instructor !

Patrick is an engaging instructor and delivers on his objective with thus course. I watched lectures even if I was already familiar wirth the topic. This course is content rich and enjoyable to view. - Robert

Well Rounded, Well Presented...

Patrick does an excellent job of conveying many aspect of course production that are often overlooked in courses of this type.

Beyond that practical how-to he also clearly demonstrates that defining a plan and tackling each step one by one, the path to success is easily within anyones grasp.

You can do this as well! You can easily learn all you need to know about teaching online and begin making money...while greatly impacting the lives of student around the globe.

In a matter of hours, while working full-time, you can film and publish your very first high quality course, and I'll hold your hand each and every step of the way. -Robin


Is this course made for you? Here's a litmus test to find out.

  • Are your a busy working professional?
  • Do you have something of value to share with others?
  • Would making passive revenue from your existing knowledge help your situation?
  • Does the thought of creating a course 'feel' like a huge undertaking?
  • Are you to busy to put 'life on hold' while spending countless hours listening to conflicting advice on Youtube or Google?
  • Do you want all the information you could possibly need organized, packaged and delivered on-demand straight to your computer screen?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then this course is 100% for you, because I walk you through EVERYTHING ... the absolute, entire course creation process. And, I do it from scratch.

This complete blueprint has a 100% risk free guarantee. If you feel at any time during the first 30-days of purchase, that it's not everything you need, then Udemy will give you a 100% - no questions asked refund.

I'm confident you will not return the course!

I look forward to having you as a student...and to receiving a link to your very first course when complete!

Pioneer in Applied Psychology, NLP & CBT - Best Selling Inst

Best-Selling online teacher with over 25,000 students in 168 countries.

Meridian Health

I'm Patrick Howell and I love helping people experience greater wellbeing, happiness and confidence.

I've trained and coached people at a variety of organizations. I've coached executives past roadblocks created by poor communication.  I've taught people in seminars around the country, certifying them in applied positive psychology and neuro-linguistic programming. I also teach workplace engagement curriculum for local community colleges. Personal clients often come to me to work through challenging issues. While together they often discover the art of Narrative Therapy and learn to re-write their life stories. 

I am the director of coaching at Internal Change Academy, which provides research assistance and personal development programs to growth-seeking individuals.

After leaving a career with the global Dale Carnegie Training company where I won multiple awards as a trainer, I founded Team Development Group. As the managing director of Team Development Group, I head a team that includes happiness experts, NLP practitioners, and workplace learning trainers that teach public seminars and in corporations.

I am also the co-author of the best-selling field manual The Positive Workplace that was published by the American Society for Training & Development in 2014.

But for me, the best part of my job involves sharing my knowledge of happiness interventions with others.  I love giving people the confidence to live their best-possible lives.
