Episode 29: My 2020 Year in Review
Early in 2020, I had $200 coming into the business bank account. Mid-2020, I had a high of about $20k coming into my bank account in just one month, but as I continued to shift from freelancer to agency - I decided to pivot into more online courses and create more passive income. In December, I had over 80% of my income coming from passive income. It was definitely not something that came without hard work, investing in coaching and consulting, but also from self-reflection, understanding myself, and believing in helping others the way I wished I could be treated as an online business owner.  So in this episode, I ramble on about all of the things I learned, resources I've used, and what I hope to accomplish and learn in 2021.  Join the free Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/inspiredcourses/ Check me out on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thecourseconsultant/ Follow me on Clubhouse: @Melody Johnson

Episode 15: How Andrea Made Her First Course
Andrea is an Online Marketing Strategist who owns and operates AM Creative, a boutique marketing agency located in Wollongong Australia. She started developing her course on Instagram Marketing last year and recently revealed the lessons she learned while developing her Master Course.  Andrea points out that by speaking to everyone, you speak to no one. This is one of the first things she learned while cultivating messages through social media channels in her agency. She also says that to create messages for your ideal client, you must think through the common things that are pain points for your clients or customers in order to show them the value that your business provides. She says that this is actually one of the first activities she includes as a Customer Avatar Worksheet in her Instagram Marketing class.  Creating a course can be difficult, but this is something that Andrea worked on before developing her online course curriculum.

Episode 12: 5 Steps Towards Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace
Diversity and inclusion training for the workforce might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of race relationships, but here’s why it’s important. As more and more stories of tragic murders of people like Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and Ahmaud Abery begin to surface it calls to question not only the brutality of certain police tactics but of a system of socioeconomic and racial divide amongst the American population that goes beyond simple ties to political agenda or religious affiliation. Employees, contractors, and even customers and clients feel the weight of these significant historical events. Yet, many wonder what is the right action to take as an organization, agency, or even solo entrepreneur? In this blog and podcast, I’m going to outline several training and actionable recommendations you can consider when beginning the conversation about race and culture in the workplace.
