Why haven’t YOU created a digital course yet?!  Amy Porterfield and I have both made millions selling online courses, we’ve impacted tens of thousands of lives, and we’ve talked about the lifestyle, the freedom, and the effect teaching online has made not just on our lives but on our students lives too.  So, really… Why haven’t YOU done it too? If you’re listening to this show, you’ve probably heard all of the reasons why you SHOULD create a course, but there’s still something stopping you from taking this step in your business, like what people will think of you, your fears around figuring out the tech, and more.

In our conversation today, we want to talk through each of these reasons why you HAVEN’T created a digital course yet, and shift our perspective so that you can start to see what’s possible for you.  Whether you're a seasoned entrepreneur looking to expand your offerings or someone just starting their entrepreneurial journey, this episode will help you transform your mindset around creating a digital course that quite literally could change your life and your business.
