Today’s episode is the second in a two-part series about creating an E-Course. In last week’s episode, I talked about planning and researching your course, finding an audience, and the basic gear needed to begin. Today’s focus is on distributing your course, along with how to accept payments and set fees. I’ll also divulge some of the mistakes I’ve made and things I would do differently next time.

Today’s show is the first of a two-part series covering the steps in creating an E-Course. Specificallly, today’s section will cover creating and selling an E-Course. I have had experience in this since I created my Healthcasters E-Course, and I’ve definitely made many mistakes that I’m happy to share with you. Statistics show that the self-improvement industry is a $10-11 billion industry, so we know that there are a lot people who crave knowledge and want to learn. Join me for more!

Today’s guest is Jaree Freeman, who is a podcasting friend who has owned multiple businesses. We are discussing a topic today that is difficult to confront, and it’s one that hits close to home for me. The topic is “entrepreneur burnout.” This topic is especially applicable to clinicians because of our unique profession. Our abilities to think clearly and be present with our clients are important in every aspect of our work. If we struggle with burnout in our private practice or small business, then we cannot be effective on any level. Jaree is here to share what she has learned through her experiences as an entrepreneur.
