    Brand Archetypes (Kaye Putnam)

    Brand strategist Kaye Putnam started working online to have a sense of stability when her husband’s military job kept their family on the move. But in her first six months online, she struggled to sell even a $97 copywriting service.
    But everything finally clicked into place when Kaye discovered the brand archetypes framework. And since 2013, Kaye’s business has grown by helping business owners get clarity on their brands.
    Because branding is about much more than just colors and images. And in today’s episode, Kaye explains how the 12 archetypes can help you make strategic psychology-based decisions about your business. She stresses the importance of rooting your branding in who YOU are, not what’s trending, and she walks through the blend of courses and 1:1 services in her business. In short, today’s episode is all about understanding yourself and your brand will help your business grow.

    Living the RV Life (Marc and Julie Bennett, RVLove)

    Meet Marc and Julie Bennett, the couple behind RVLove.com. The couple have been living, working and traveling full-time in their RV since 2014 – visiting all 50 USA states, plus Canada, Mexico and Australia. They began sharing on their blog, YouTube and social media as a labor of love, and within a few years, RVLove evolved into a thriving business that now supports their life and travels. 
    In this episode, you’ll learn why Marc and Julie decided to take the leap of faith, first into living full-time in an RV, and later into pursuing their business full-time. We talk about the power of simplifying your approach as a business owner, and the importance of having multiple revenue streams, especially in a time as uncertain as this one, and get into the deeper benefits of working for yourself and quite literally unchaining yourself from your desk.

    Photoshop for Authors (Regina Wamba)

    That’s Regina Wamba, self-described snarky introvert and super-charged creative person. In this episode, we talk about how Regina first got into designing book covers, and how her creative entrepreneur journey evolved from there.

    After that, we talk about having fun - an often overlooked side of entrepreneurship! - and why it’s so important to business. So get ready to laugh at all of our terrible jokes in this light-hearted (but still informative) episode of Everything is Teachable.

    Digital Productivity (Tiago Forte, Forte Labs)

    Digital Productivity (Tiago Forte, Forte Labs)

    Tiago Forte is the Productivity Expert behind Forte Labs and their signature program, Building a Second Brain. Although Tiago recently welcomed his 10th cohort of students, he’s doing a lot of things that may surprise you.
     For one thing, nothing is self paced. The cohort goes through the material at the same time altogether. They also use live Zoom calls instead of creating perfectly pre-produced content, which is what most new creators assume must be done.
    In this episode, Tiago shares why he believes pre-produced content isn’t necessarily the best approach for courses of any size. He’ll share the story of how his initial product - a book club - eventually turned into a workshop and then an online course, and how he looks at creativity practically instead of mythically. 
    And true to his expertise, he also offers a ton of great tips to improve your own workflow and productivity as a course creator. So grab a pen - better yet, a virtual notepad - and get ready to take notes.

    Employee to Entrepreneur (Luisa Zhou, LuisaZhou.com)

    Learn how Luisa Zhou built a million-dollar business while still working a full-time job.
    Luisa Zhou is the creator of the Employee to Entrepreneur system, which teaches people how to leave their day job and start their own six-figure plus business. She’s helped thousands of students launch their own businesses that generate anywhere from 30K to 100K in less than a year. Her advice has been featured in numerous online and print publications including Forbes, Inc, Entrepreneur, Success magazine, and more.
    She noticed that in the early days of her online business, people kept asking her the same question: “How on earth are you able to do all of this yourself while you’re still working a full time job?” It’s a common situation that a lot of us face early on. And today, that’s exactly what Luisa teaches her students how to do. 
    So in this episode, Luisa shares some of her top tips to organically connect with early customers. She also shares how her third course launch put her business over the million dollar mark within a year of starting her business, and how her strategies can work for you, too.

I'm learning so much

I love the interviews with Teachable course creators. It's great to learn not only what they are doing to succeed, but how they failed in the past and picked things up again.

Great Resource!

I am a creator on Teachable and am so happy I found this podcast. The interviews so far have been excellent and encouraging. Please include the actual website/social media links to your guests in the show notes notes for each one so we don’t have to search too much. Also Episode 14 with Euge Oller show notes are wrong at the end. It references another guest re: Java Script. Thank you!

IPPI Ron ,
