Real-world alchemy

Question: what’s a simple way to pandemic proof your business?

Or what about the next recession? There’s always one around the corner for one reason or another. Or even worse… hyper-inflation, currency crisis, financial collapse? I know it sounds all doom and gloom…

But these things do happen.

Or what happened with my dad.

Car wreck.

He was a plumber and suddenly became a paraplegic. Couldn’t do plumbing anymore. A lot of people go through life assuming things will work out for the best. Not me. I’m optimistic, but I don’t assume.

I’ve seen the worse happened.

I’ve watched people die right in front of me.

People who likely thought “It’ll all be okay.”

Nope. You have to MAKE it okay. I’m constantly evaluating my position. What if I get in a car wreck tomorrow? Or, get cancer and have 6 months to live? Will my family be taken care of?

Or will my kids suffer through what I did?

Call me cynical…

But, won’t ever be able to call my unprepared.

In any case, that’s why I’m so passionate about pushing you to get into online course creation. Yes, I’m biased. 1000%. I now sell a course on it. So, dump a gallon of salt down your gullet.

But I still believe it.

Because it’s almost like legit, real-world alchemy.

Come up with an idea. Create a course on it. Sell the course. Make muney. It’s so simple. Especially given the platforms that now exists to market your courses. Udemy, Skillshare, Pluaralsight…

And a bunch of others I’m probably forgetting.

There are teachers who all they do is put up courses on Skillshare and Udemy — and that’s it. No outside marketing. No mailing list. No social media. Just create the course, upload and profit.

And they earn thousands per month from it.

Now obviously, you’ll make more if you get and promote yourself. But, the point is… all the infrastructure is there to make it as simple and easy as you want to make it. What you need is a killer course.

That doesn’t take 17 years to create.

And that’s WHY I created Sane Course Creation. To show you how to create an information-packed course… with depth and tons of value… that won’t kill you. I see so many course creators going about this all wrong.

Focused on sizzle and not the steak.

As a former Army Instructor, it’s maddening.

In any case, as a freelancer, you are perfectly positioned to take advantage of this. You just need a format to follow and a little insight on how to pack your course with value — which is exactly what I’ll show you.

It all comes down to the course outline.

The course is up on Skillshare for the time being — which means you can get it essentially free. That’s because, as a teacher on Skillshare, I can offer you an exclusive 1-month free trial of the platform (the normal trial is just 7 days).

With that, you get 100% unfettered access to everything.

Every course, every video, every lesson, PDF, download.

The whole enchilada.

Then, if you simply cancel before the month is up, you never pay a penny. It’s a few hoops to jump through, but not a bad deal. That said, keep in mind, that the course is coming off Skillshare at the end of July…

Just a few days from now.

At which point, it’ll be sold on my website…

For probably around $150 or so.

So, if you want it while it’s essentially free… the clock is tickin’. The link to get the exclusive 1-month trial from me is here: Just remember… you have to start the trial AND watch the course before the end of July.

So, don’t dally.

Get in, watch and let’s get your course created.

Thabo Motsoahae

John is one of the best instructors I have come across, I learned a lot from his online tutorials.

Lewis Howes

John is amazing at building membership sites. He converted one of my sites over from it’s existing (hardly working) platform over to the clean and simple to use WishList membership platform. I highly recommend using John and WishList for any of your membership site needs.

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!
