Building community for members and keeping their attention long term by consistently providing good information they may not find elsewhere.
Content is the backbo…

The First Time I Failed at Course Creation
Very early on in my business I decided to create a mini-course to bring some passive income into my business.
My plan was to create a 1 module, 3 lesson course, sell it for $27 and sit back and watch the money roll in.
So I did what most first-time course creators do…
I started creating content.
I wrote my scripts, filmed the videos, loaded them to my video host, created the emails to deliver the trainings, designed a super simple sales page, and wrote some social posts to promote it.

Want automation success? Time to get smart with your automation goals
If you were to make contact with me about automating your business, one of the first questions I would ask you would be “What are your goals with automation?”
Some of the typical responses I hear are
to save time,
to stop being so manual,
to not have to do the things that don’t light them up.
While these are certainly goals, they are so general that it’s going to be very difficult to determine if you have been successful in attaining them.
It may seem cliche to say that you need to be ‘…
How do I outline my Course?
One of the questions I get asked quite a bit in regards to course creation is how to get started with outlining the content for the course. Once someone has decide to create a course this can be a big roadblock; deciding what to include and how to include it.

How many emails are too many
My husband HATES the little numbers that show on applications on his iPhone screen and he will do anything and everything he can to get rid of them, even if that means deleting the application itself (I know...extreme right).
If you’re like him at all and get a little freaked out or frustrated by the numbers on your screen or counting unread emails in your inbox, then you’re probably going to want to look away…
But this is the number of unread emails in my private inbox (not my business ones)…
