Creating an online course has endless benefits to entrepreneurs, coaches, consultants, experts, authors, speakers and hobbyists, including:
A business needs to earn money, it’s as simple as that.
An online course is something that you can sell online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without you being present. Even at a mediocre success rate that could give you a substantial pay raise.
Eg - imagine selling access to your courses for $47 a month.
ONLY 50 people would bring you in $2,350 per month completely passively!!
100 people would bring you in $4,700 a month in passive income!!
That’s an extra $56,400 per year….. Wouldn’t that be a handy little extra?!
You get your time and your LIFE back.
Instead of the hard hustle having to constantly exchange your time for money, seeing clients, providing complex services to needy customers - your online courses provide your services, coaching and consulting FOR you. On autopilot!
You can actually help other people and make a difference in people’s lives. Sure money and freedom are wonderful things but knowing that other people are benefiting from something they learned from YOU.
There is nothing like being asked “what do you do for a living?” and being able to reply with “I change people’s lives”.… that is an awesome feeling.
After over 14 YEARS of creating courses (including 60 of my own and hundreds for other people), I have written this book to share the exact strategies I use to create 7 figure courses that change people's lives every day - so that you can do it too!
This book includes all of the following:
Course Topic: How To Pick The Perfect Topic For Your Online Course
Sell Your Course: How To Ensure Your Course Idea Has High Market Demand
Course Profits: How To Price Your Course and Nail Your Business Model
Results: How To Create Magnetic and Specific Learning Outcomes
Create Content: How To Select and Gather Your Course Content
Course Structure: How To Put Your Modules and Lessons in The Right Order
Deliver Engaging Training: How To Determine the Most Engaging and Effective Delivery Methods for Each Lesson
Course Videos: How To Film, Record and Edit your Online Course Videos
Online Course Tech: Setting Up Your Basic Tech and Online School
Launch & Marketing: How To Market, Promote, Launch and Sell Your Online Course
That ‘magic thing’ that puts us into productivity hyperdrive and has us feeling ‘on fire’ when it’s around, yet we miss like a vital bodily organ if it’s not working.
There are many reasons why so many course creators out there haven't started sharing their expertise with the world - or keep retreating back into obscurity each time they peep their toe over the course creation starting line.
It breaks my heart when I think of all of the unfinished courses in the world, all because our inner course creation mojos have taken a hall pass.
Having been the CEO of a curriculum design and training company for well over a decade and created hundreds of courses for my own business and for my customers, I have seen and personally experienced every course creation mojo-killer out there.
In this book I will explore some of the most common course creation stoppers and use this opportunity to remind you of your inner brilliance, share with you my top tips, strategies, advice and pep-talks to coax back that mojo of yours and to get your course creation fire burning bright.
Beat your procrastination, overcome your fears and just get a friendly kick up the butt to get yourself back on form and feeling more motivated to get your courses out to the world than ever before!
This book is also found as a chapter in one of my other books ‘Entrepreneur to Edupreneur: The 10 Stages To Creating A Wildly Successful Education-Based Business & Online Course’. But being aware of the fact that it is often not the course creation process, but instead a missing mojo or a little self-doubt that causes many courses to never leave people’s heads; I felt it deserved a title of it’s own.
Are you ready to get your fire started so that your course can finally get out to the world?
There are endless wonderful ways to commercialise your knowledge and expertise today, which makes creating and selling online courses easier than ever for anyone!
No matter what your field of specialisation or what type of hobby you might have, you can teach it to others and make money whilst you're doing it - all from home with a mobile phone!

It is impossible for us to accurately predict the future of the post-compulsory education & training sector with any certainty.
However, we can be certain that it will be different.
The current landscape and trends over the past 5-10 years can give us plenty of signals as to what training and education providers in the post-compulsory sector may be facing in the near future.
We can be reactive to the constant changes in our sector as education and training providers, or plan ahead as best we can for strategic and sustainable growth for a strong and fit-for-purpose future of education and training.Will we all be going online?
Will face to face training be replaced by blended learning?
Will qualifications still matter?
What part will micro-learning play?
What should educators, training providers and educational institutions be preparing for to survive the next 10 years?
Having recently completed a tenure as the ‘Executive Director and Head of Campus’ of an Australian University, and with over 13 years of experience as a leader in the post-compulsory/adult education sector; in this short book, qualified education leader, Sarah Cordiner, will share her thoughts on what we might expect for the adult education and training sector in the 2020-2030 decade.
