When Mike and I became parents, we experienced the most difficult year of our life up until that point due to a combination of the fact that becoming a parent is hard, I had a traumatic birth experience, I struggled with postpartum anxiety and insomnia, and we had a sick baby who would wake herself up throughout the night scratching herself so much from her severe eczema.
It was not awesome on so many levels.
However, the reason everything didn’t fall apart was because our business remained solid the whole time, despite the fact that both of us were working less than half the amount of time we’d worked previously.
So how did we make our money that year?
Digital courses that didn’t require us to trade hours for dollars (or be showered or coherent because we created them before having a kid).
For us, having a thriving digital course business meant we kept it together (barely) during an incredibly grueling year and could be with each other and our baby without having to worry about how we were going to make money.
For others, having a thriving digital course business means being able to homeschool their kids, travel to spend a month or more with family that lives far away, not needing to have as many (or any) 1:1 clients, being able to leave a job that feels soul-sucking, or being able to keep the doors open to the business that they love.
What might having a thriving digital course business mean to you?
There are a lot of misconceptions about what it takes to create and launch digital courses successfully.
I don’t have anything special to teach.
I don’t have a big enough (or any) audience.
The digital course world is over-saturated. There’s no room for me.
The tech is too complicated and I can barely navigate my email inbox!
I wouldn’t even know where to begin. It’s too overwhelming.
Turns out, creating a thriving digital course business is not necessarily what you think…and you CAN do it.
