Why am I Giving Away my Online Courses?
Why would someone who earns a living from online courses decide to give them away?
It’s something I’ve been considering for a while. I even wrote about it as one compassionate strategy for turning your business into a force for good in my Give-to-Profit Book a couple of years ago.
So why now?
Read on to discover why I’m giving away my online courses and how you can get access to them.
It feels right
Despite wanting to do this for several years something held me back. There have been plenty of times I’ve away short masterclasses and online courses. However I’ve never given away the longer transformational training programs that have been the core of my business.
How could I still earn a good living if I were to give away one of my main income streams?
My head was saying one thing while my body and intuition were nudging me in another direction. But I didn’t feel ready. I first needed to lean in and explore the flutter in my heart to see where it would lead.
Until now, today feels perfect.
I’m pivoting my business – I still LOVE working with clients and delivering online courses. However, from next year my focus will be helping Women over 40 Create a life of Meaning, Vitality, and Impact. I will continue to help women grow a successful business on a one-to-one basis, but I will no longer be delivering my online business coaching programs. So what do I do with the great online courses my clients have loved?
My courses transform lives – since 2010 my courses have helped many business owners master their marketing, attract more clients, create their own online courses, and turn their business into a force for good. They have helped many people grow a sustainable business. So it feels such a waste to simply delete them. I’d prefer to give them to people who could benefit from them–in a similar way we give away other items that we no longer need.
I’m raising funds to sponsor a school in Lombok – I’m raising funds to rebuild schools in Lombok that were destroyed in the 2018 earthquake. Rather than deleting my courses or giving them away for free what better way to have more impact than to give them away for donations.
It’s Giving Tuesday on 1st December – once a year businesses and individuals around the world come together on Giving Tuesday to do something to support good causes. What better day to do this than on Giving Tuesday? Or in this case for the week leading up to Giving Tuesday.
What courses am I giving away?
I’m giving away home-study versions of all my business online courses for business owners.
