You have to have a heart for new online course creators because they struggle with putting all the pieces together.
New course creators have a passion for what they do, are experts in their field, and want to share their knowledge with the world.
New course creators typically know what they want to do but don't know how to get started or follow through.
New course creators simply need one tool, a step-by-step process, and the best online course creator coaching.

I developed my first training course in 1998 when both my children were in high school. At that time, the Board of Education issued a policy stipulating all students must pass the High School Exit Exam to receive their diploma. Otherwise, they would receive a document stating their attendance.
You can imagine the frustration. After attending four years of high school, students could walk away with a record of attendance, instead of a diploma. Think about it, senior students were already accepted to college with full academic scholarships. Moreover, athletic students had also received scholarships.
Instead of joining the crowd of frustation, I contacted the Board of Education to see what I could do about the exam. The contact mentioned a document, which included sample questions for all testing sections (English, Reading, Math, and Social Studies). I purchased a copy.
I reviewed the document, designed a study course for my children and their friends. I met with them for 4-6 weeks on Saturdays. I coached and mentored them on each subject and gave them a copy of the sample tests. I graded each test and revisited areas that needed more review. Both my children and all of their friends passed the High School Exit Exam on the first attempt, approximately 20 students.
The word rang out in the community that I was working with students to pass the exit exam. I opened my first small business "Good Information" and began coaching and mentoring high school students to pass their High School Exit Exam. Everything pretty much evolved from there.
Now, I help clients create online courses using my Course Creation Blueprint.
