I’m not a big woo-woo guy.
But, sometimes… even grumpy old me has to admit there’s some serendipity goin’ down. The very day I release my new course… on courses… I begrudgingly hop on the Facebooks to do my weekly check-in on the weirdos…
And what’s the first ad I see?
Some chick peddling her course “boot camp”.
Dressed up in Army gear, carrying a spatula, screaming at some dude to get up and make his online course. And the text of the video is some long-winded rant about getting serious about course creation.
(I think. I only read like half of it.)
This is the kind of s*** I’m talking about.
I mean… it’s fine if that’s her personality and what she likes to do. More girl power to her. But, people see that and think: “Is that what I gotta do to sell an online course?” OR, they see the popular courses on Udemy…
And think: “Do I really have to create a 30-hour course?”
Or the “epic” transitions…
And “dope” graphics.
It’s also completely unnecessary. Believe it or not, there are still people on this little blue ball that just want to learn (30,000+ students and hundreds of thousands earned… doing simple, but valuable, courses proves it).
These diamond in the rough students don’t need you to dance around like a monkey on crack and play court jester. They actually have a little self-discipline. And commitment.
And don’t need everything catered to their exact whim.
And they care more about useful information that will help them on their journey… than they do about how “rad” your opening montage was. They also make for really great customers and students.
My favorite kind.
And actually implement the s*** you teach.
In fact, I purposefully try to attract these kinds of students and scare away all the gimmick-seekers and “one-weird-trick-ers”. They’re the type who whine about every little thing and never implement what you teach.
They’re lottery-ticket thinkers.
Always looking for the next “get-rick-quick” gimmick.
Instead of buckling down, doing the work and making s*** happen. I don’t want those yay-hoos anywhere near me. And they won’t get anything from what I teach anyway… because I teach principles.
And fundamentals (that work).
In any case, GI Jane can have ’em and spend all her time herding them, like cats, to actually consume and implement what she teaches. I’ll stick to the, admittedly much smaller but much more fun to work with…
Deep thinking crowd.
In any case, my latest course, Sane Course Creation, is for these kind of deeper thinkers. That’s because it’s about how to create online courses that are high in value and beloved by your students — without all the nonsense and poser-ism.
A *sane* approach to course creation…
As the name implies.
If that’s up your alley, then the course is up over on the Skillshares. As usual, I put in there for the first few weeks to give everyone, regardless of your financial sitchy, a chance to take it and learn from it.
But at the end of July, it will come down.
And be sold on my own website… prolly for $150 or so.
So, if you want it essentially free… this Skillshare deal is the best way. To get started, you simply click this link: https://myjohn.us/sane. That will get you access to an exclusive 1-month free trial of Skillshare.
You’ll have 100% unfettered access to every course on the platform — including my Sane Course Creation course. Every course, every lesson, every PDF, download — all of it.
To take at your leisure.
Then, simply cancel before the month is up…
And you don’t pay a penny.
A few hoops to jump through, for sure… but essentially free as I said. Anyway, that may float your boat. If so, the link you need to get started, again, is here: https://myjohn.us/sane.
P.S. Of course, my Patreon supporters get to avoid all this back and forth. You simply get access to all my past and future courses with no restrictions. And this course is already loaded up on Patreon and waiting for you here: https://myjohn.us/patreon.
