Kudos for the Bean Ninjas Podcast

Just finished listening to episode 44. How to create an online course that’s profitable with Paul Thomson.

Don't be all things to all people when you can focus on being an authority for a micro niche within your general niche. When you're seen as a specialist versus being a generalist, and you offer valuable solutions to your micro niche's problems, which appeals to the various learning styles, price never becomes an issue because the value received obliterates it!

A great takeaway Anfernee and Paul was pre-selling your course (pre-market product launch if you will) before you launch it, creating transactional value, and allowing you to harvest genuine feedback and market intelligence as well as testimonials.

Great to hear a podcast that promotes remote workers and effective ways to work efficiently and have a great work life balance and the flexibility to travel. I am a Xero remote worker and am enjoying the tips on this podcast to refine how my day looks like!
