Hi, I'm Jacques, and I help course creators actually succeed with online courses.
More than ever before, regular people are taking their knowledge, packaging it up in an online course, and making a living doing it. I created my very own online course several years ago, and it’s been an awesome ride.
But not everyone is successful with online courses. In fact, far too many people’s courses never really take off. And that’s why I’m here - to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.
So what you can expect when you listen to the Online Course Show? Interviews jam-packed with tips from other successful creators. Coaching calls with some of my students. Insights into the behind-the-scenes of my course. And plenty of recommendations that you can put to practical use in your own business.
In other words, if you’re thinking about creating an online course (or wondering how to improve what you already have created), this is the podcast for you.
