A course signposts your expert status by showcasing your knowledge and demonstrating the confidence to move from practitioner to instructor.
A course helps you to escape the "time for money" treadmill and reach more customers, including people you can't easily serve right now.
A course is a valuable digital asset you can sell alongside existing offers, and creates an "on ramp" for higher-priced products and services.
With these advantages on offer, it’s no wonder many people dream of building their own course.
But many of those people get stuck "course limbo" because they don’t know how to get started.
Creating a course is definitely easier than launching a rocket.
But they do have some things in common.
For instance, both need a solid mission plan and just enough "thrust" to get off the ground.

I'm pragmatic about courses and don't pretend they're the right path for everyone. I'm also one of the few experts to focus on the “design and build” side of the process.
I’ve spent several years developing and testing my course creation framework. It's based on a decade of creating courses and training individuals and teams.
No course platform is perfect for everyone, but I use and recommend Podia. It’s an affordable all-in-one platform that supports courses, community and coaching.
Note: My framework is platform-neutral, but choosing Podia is a great cure for "platform paralysis" and it means I can provide implementation advice too.
I was the “course creation guy” for a well-known online entrepreneur. I turned his product ideas into popular courses earning millions of dollars and serving 1,000+ students.
I’ve created many hours of written and filmed content for courses and other digital projects. I previously worked as an in-house writer, editor and producer for the BBC.
I’m a certified Podia expert specialising in course creation. I help people make the most of the platform, and get early access to (and influence over) upcoming features.
Here are some popular publications where my writing has been featured.
