Come late September 2021, after a two week vacation and still no clue how to move this online business forward, I embarked on a journey to declutter my home office. At this point, due to covid 19, we were working remotely on a permanent basis. So my stuff and work stuff were starting to take over the space…
And there it was…
Folder: Passive Income
Sitting, patiently waiting for me…
And I cried… I got goose bumps and cried hard. I had forgotten my plan, my mission, my why…
I got caught up in trying to make something work that simply was not going to because my heart was not in it.
The folder contained everything. Have I mentioned I love research? Yes, this folder had it all.
How to get started, how to market, how to create content, everything I needed.
And then the biggest shock of all…
I had even decided that I wanted to learn everything about courses and then teach others! A business plan from early 2019! Just sitting there waiting for me…
So I redid my homework, found out all the new and fancy stuff related to online courses. I love online courses.
And then imposter syndrome appeared again.
How can I teach something without having the experience?
Back to research.
Some of the greatest people and mentors in the online space say that you need to start somewhere. Even teachers go into work not knowing everything.
You learn while you teach. The Protégé Effect.
This validated my idea and gave me the confidence to slowly build my course. Lesson at a time, learning and building.
Small Steps = Course Launch
That affirmation was written and placed in front of me.
My course is now ready. Ready to offer to you, the ambitious course creator!
It took me 3 years to get out of my own way and create this course. I don’t want you to make the same mistake.
