Have you been wanting to create an online course, but you're just not sure if you're ready? If you're worthy of teaching? If you're expert enough to go ahead with that online course?
Well, I've got your back. Over the last five years, I grew my online course business to $2 million per year in a super small, weird niche.

I felt that I already had to have this huge following and that I already had to be recognized as an expert in order to get started with my course.
