Over the past few years, my hunger for knowledge has driven me to seek insights and guidance to propel my career and refine my business practices.
Unlike those who stumbled upon TikToks about crafting passive income through automated online courses, my journey into creating my first digital course unfolded quite serendipitously.
During a visit to Colorado to spend time with my kids, I found myself in "mom mode," offering a helping hand with their finances and budgeting. Call it my Virgo nature, but the sight of a stack of bills on the counter was something I couldn't just let be.
As we collaborated and successfully streamlined their budget and financial matters, they recognized the simplicity of my system. This led them to inquire if I could extend the same assistance to their co-workers and friends. While I wholeheartedly wished I could, my schedule simply wouldn't allow it. That's when I came up with a solution that could be shared without my physical presence—a step-by-step guide. What I didn't realize at the time was that I was creating a course.
Upon returning from my trip, I recognized the value of what I had stumbled upon. It had the potential to aid countless individuals struggling with the weight of their bills. While my system doesn't erase the bills themselves, it does alleviate the associated stress, granting you the freedom to redirect your focus. Eager to share this relief with others, I took the plunge and established my website, complete with my very first automated online course.
Having immersed myself in learning lately, I understood some of the vital steps needed to bring my course to the attention of those it could genuinely benefit. Step one: a name that not only addresses a problem but also conveys what's being offered and incorporates a number. This trio of elements in a course name is a game-changer!
After experimenting with various combinations, I finally settled on: "Master Your Budget in 4 Simple Steps." It clicked. Better yet, the course delivered. Numerous individuals who invested in it are still reaping the benefits today.
This inaugural, albeit accidental, online automated course wasn't conceived with the aim of generating passive income. It was born from a wealth of knowledge I'd amassed over the years, knowledge that I hadn't initially realized could be a lifeline for others. If it happens to generate income along the way, that's a welcomed bonus. However, the true victory lies in fulfilling its intended purpose—easing the burden of budgeting and bills for those who need it most. In that regard, I consider it a triumph in the game of life.
