When I began teaching online in 2012, I had no online experience, no email list, and zero traditional teaching experience. I started out in a position like many of you.
Today, I have over 60,000 students taking my own high-quality courses. I’m making more money than I’ve ever made before, and I believe you can do it too! In this in-depth book, I teach you everything I did to build my own online teaching career – from the very beginning to now.
In this complete guide to teaching online courses, I break down how I got started teaching online, how I built my own brand, and how I make recurring passive income from teaching online.
The book is broken down into 4 sections: THINK, CREATE, SHARE, BUILD. Here’s what is taught in each category:
