Lesson 1: Now is good
I waited, and I waited, and I waited for the right time, but it never came. If you want it, the right time is now. There was nothing uniquely different about when I started, to be honest, I just decided. I am glad I did.
I talk to a lot of people who want to create an online course, or at least they want all the benefits that come with having an online course. However, they tell me that they don’t have the time. The thing is that they (often) have time to work ‘long hours’ week after week. The irony here is, in the same sentence, they still say they want to do it, and they see the benefits of it.
I had the same crippling mindset when I was procrastinating about creating my first online course. When I decided to make my freedom my top priority, I 'found’ the time.
When you have a passive income from your online course, you can have more income and impact and still have lots of time for yourself and for those people who are important to you. You can spend more time on your health, your community, your hobbies, or passion projects because you will have more freedom. You may fly coach for a while, but if that’s the price, it’s still a no-brainer.
At some point, you will look back at our life. So start now. Even if it takes me a year to complete my course, at least I’ll have it done, and then I can free up some time for myself, my health, the people important to me, my community, and more.
