Let’s imagine for a moment — take a trip down memory lane.
Do you remember that instant, that flicker of brilliance, when you first came up with the idea for the online course that you want to offer?
Do you remember the sense of excitement that came along with it — the surge of adrenaline as you started to imagine the impact you were going to have on your audience by sharing the course with them…
The feeling of anticipation as you started to think about what topics you might cover…
And how you thought you would pull all of your ideas together?
What a rush!
That initial burst of excitement can be enough to get you moving and thinking about how to get your idea out into the world.
But, if you’re like a lot of people, then the doubts and questions start to worm their way in.
It might not happen right away, with that early jolt of excitement to carry you forward, but at some point you run into a wall.
You start to ask:
“Who am I to actually be teaching this subject, when there are others who can do it better…”
“I didn’t really think this through. This is going to take a lot of hard work, and I just don’t have that much time right now…”
“No one in my life understands what I’m doing. I feel so alone. Maybe I shouldn’t be doing this…”
“I have all these ideas, but I don’t know how to actually put it together in a way that makes sense…”
Or, worst of all:
“What if I put in all that time and hard work, and no one signs up for my course?!”
Well, you’re in luck!
And, as it turns out, you’re not alone.
Those very questions plague almost everyone who is at the beginning of their course building journey. Seriously!
That’s why we created the 30 Day Course Creation Challenge — and why we’re running it again starting this month.
There are a couple of key benefits, if you’re wondering if the challenge is right for you.
The first is that you’ll be working with a deadline, which gives you a good chance to…
Finally make your course a priority
One of the biggest benefits we see for the people who have joined the Challenge is that they finally give themselves permission to make their course a priority.
Rather than saying “oh, I’ll get to that tomorrow” and then pushing it off again and again (and, let’s be honest – again), they buckle down and give themselves the chance to succeed.
And really — it’s only 30 days!
You can do anything for one month, right?
The next benefit is that you will…
Make progress, together
The other important part of the challenge is the community.
It’s not just you and your course idea versus the world.
Suddenly, you have a guide (that’s us) to help you navigate the way ahead.
And you’re no longer a lone traveler — it’s now you and a group of fellow travelers, all walking the path together, supporting each other and helping to keep everyone accountable and motivated.
Not only do you reach the end of the 30 days with a validated course idea, an outline, and at least the first couple of lessons completed — you also emerge with a community at your back and the momentum to finally get your course out into the world.
So what are you waiting for?
Whether you’re thinking of getting your very first course out of your head and into the world, or if you’re just ready to get your next course up and running, we hope to see you inside!
Let us know in the comments what you’re most looking forward to in the challenge, or where you’re stuck with bringing your course to life. We’re here to help!
