Episode 125: Sourcing Content for your Online Course
Every now and then a course creator needs an outside piece of content to support an idea they are trying to convey. It’s not often, but it does happen.

But if you haven’t created them, how do you go about evaluating them and ensuring they are of the highest quality for your course and clients? And how do you make sure you are allowed to use that content?

Offering a free online course doesn’t mean you get to skimp on the details. Making a 30-minute mini-course doesn’t mean you don’t show up and bring it for your customers.

Episode 91: Lessons Learned From a Weekend Retreat.
Sometimes we make decisions to go to events to learn and sometimes we make decisions to go to events to network.  But at the end of the day, regardless of why we decide to go in the moment, it is all about building our businesses.  How often do you actually take something away from an event or learning opportunity and go out and apply it?  What does it look like to take stock several months later to determine if that event or opportunity was actually worth it and how did you use the information to move your business forward? In this episode of Think Big, Move Fast we’re talking about lessons applied from a retreat I attended nearly six months ago. And how I went about lifting the veil of concrete thinking to see the possibility to grow my business.

If you’ve been thinking about creating an online course, but you’re wondering, how the hell do I sell that online course after it’s built, you’re not alone. In this episode of Think Big, Move Fast, I’m going to share the first chapter of my new book, Educate Your Audience, based on a free workshop I did a while back with some business owners.

And while I don’t teach marketing and sales in my programs to create online courses, and I don’t always talk about marketing in sales on this podcast, I think this is worth sharing to help you see that just because everyone else is jumping off the bridge into the Facebook ads pond, doesn’t mean you have to as well. What would your mother think? I’m so pleased to share this first chapter, and first draft with you. I hope it inspires you to think differently about how you’re showing up online and how you want to position your business, your online course, and your impact in the world.  Learn more about creating online courses with Heather at https://heatherdeveaux.com

If you’ve been in business for any length of time, you know that feeling of losing control can be scary. And when you’re selling education and making promises to transform someone’s life with what you know and can do, it’s double scary. In the third part of the series, I’ll also help you discover your own strengths and weaknesses as a speaker and presenter and help you craft easy rules to follow for yourself so you don’t get overwhelmed when you need to get up in front of a crowd...online of course. Even if you’ve given lots of presentations in real-time, in front of people in real life, dealing with tech and managing an online presence is very different; especially when it comes to teaching and ensuring what you’ve taught is being learned and can be used by your students.

Listening to a podcast by another business owner recently, I realized that talking about all the content creation in the world doesn't inspire anyone unless you're talking about the returns on those creations. So I'm sharing what I've been doing to build my business over the last 10 months AND I'm telling you how much money I've made and what I did to earn every single one of those dollars. Here's a hint: I didn't use Facebook Ads, sales teams or social media managers.

Episode 39: The Myth of Learning Styles
Ahhh learning styles. The coveted brainchild of adult education and the thing all instructional designers can’t wait to tell you about because it makes them sound smart. But here’s a little secret in the industry that’s not so secret if you hang around with me. Creating online courses - or any learning experience for that matter - is not about learning styles. You don’t need to know them. You don’t need to care about them. And you don’t need to consider them when creating online courses because if you are focused on these defunct categories, you’re focusing on the wrong thing. Let’s find out why.

But it’s the entrepreneurs who recognize there’s a lot more to this process than these things who get ahead of the game. That’s because you need to accept that there is a lot that you don’t know you don’t know yet and getting help and advice is the only way to figure it out. In this episode, we’re talking about the other aspects of course creation that you probably haven’t thought about when you’re in between bouts of doubt related to creating an online course.  To learn more about creating online courses with me, visit https://heatherdeveaux.com To learn more about Sara Roach Lewis, visit srl.solutions
