I’m a Creative Coach for female entrepreneurs who are in the process of building their business but are stuck in the ‘HOW’. How do I scale my business? HOW do I attract ideal clients? HOW do I grow my email list? HOW do I _________?!?!?!
The answer to all of these questions is : Build Your First Course
Whoa whoa whoa…what?!
Yep. It’s true. Courses create credability, position you as an expert, and create passive income for your business. Win-win, right?
I totally understand the overwhelm. I’m a serial entrepreneur at heart (seriously, since birth) who started out charging way too much for lemonade (a 5 year old’s gotta make moolah for those fancy rollerblades!) When I was 12 I started a jewelry line. At 14 I started a babysitting business. At 18 a photography business that made me some cash through college. At 22 I started Soul Paint Co., a painting company that provided art as a therapeutic technique, Soul Painting workshops, and coaching throughout the process (although I didn’t know I was coaching at the time!) all over the city.
I loved each business, but I wanted more.
How do I multiply myself without totally burning out?!
I wanted more freedom of time, money, and travel. I wanted to quit trading hours for dollars and finally create a business that fueled my soul, energized me, and allowed me to give value back to the world. I wanted to be able to have more time for my ART while worrying less about where the next dollar was going to come from.
I found myself loving coaching and received my certification, identified exactly who I wanted to work with, and began building my soul-centered business. I coached female entrepreneurs all over the world from the comfort of my living room. Let’s be honest, most coaching calls were done in my pajamas. #comfyforlife
I did this process for years… have discovery calls to identify if the client and I were the right fit, begin working with the client for X number of weeks (sometimes even in person..GASP! The introvert in me wanted to hide half the time), and I built my business to generate more than I ever had.
Which was cool, don’t get me wrong.
But, if I’m sick…or I want to travel for a month, WHERE is my money coming from?!
I didn’t have my business set up to run without me. Yes, my email list would continue to grow, but I didn’t have streams of income set up to generate money for me while I’m off exploring Disneyworld for the 100th time.
I soon found myself in a world of burn out…I’m talkin’ can’t even listen to entrepreneur podcasts type of burnout where everything ‘build your business’ totally frustrated me.
So (finally after months) I began to slowly branch out and research millionaires, 6-figure humans, all of the ‘unicorns’ out there who were making money and still having fun in their life and you know what I realized? SO MANY of them had a course that they sold either yearly, continually or both!
Take Pat Flynn for example. He’s a genius at generating passive income and podcasting. So he created courses on passive income and podcasting! He’s generated over $2.1 million dollars in the last 12 months. Check out his income reports here!
Or what about Flora Bowley! An artist from Oregon who created her Bloom True course around painting, releasing creative blocks, and letting go to enjoy the creative process?
Don’t even get me started on Michelle over at Making Sense of Cents. She built a course around personal finance, and then another around affiliate marketing because her blog is so stinkin’ successful!
You can literally create a course around just about anything that you’re passionate about.
I remember first hearing about a course that shows how to keep an Orchid alive.
That made a million dollars….ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!
I was so intrigued…
So I quickly began putting together my first course… then my first training… then my first e-book…
And you know what happened next? Probably still one of the coolest things of online business…
… what happened next was a “cha-ching” sound at 6:00 a.m. into my Paypal account of someone buying my first course for $299. Then another “cha-ching” in the same week from someone buying my e-book for $49.
I. Was. Hooked.
Not only was I able to continue DOING my passion…but I was able to TEACH my passion to AS MANY PEOPLE AS I WANTED because my course was available for all.
Talk about multiplying yourself.
Build it once, then help it grow. THAT’S what I find really fun in the online world.
I see so many creatives who have SUCH a gift that if they only knew how to wrap it up into a course that continually sells, they could be generating the income they’ve been dreaming of.
That’s my goal anyway. To help you teach your passion. I tell you exactly how to do that in my course. I teach you step by step all of the technical stuff (because let’s be honest, that’s where many of us give up…the how’s of things can be SO confusing!). We get down and dirty into marketing yourself, setting up your course for success, software options and more. Click here to see each module and learn more!
