MBA2237 How Make 10K a Month with Live Courses + Free Ride Friday
There are lots of ways to share what you know.
But one is the most complete, comprehensive, and effective: live courses.
They’re the closest thing to teaching someone in person. More intimate than a blog post or YouTube video, more in-depth than a webinar, the live course is the ultimate way to sell your unique knowledge and experience.
Today, we’ll explain how that’s easily worth $10k per month.
We’ll share the three basic steps to creating, marketing, and selling a killer live course. If you’re intimidated by the thought — don’t be! You might be surprised how easy it is, especially with one particular tool we’ll discuss.
Plus, we’ll explain why live courses get better results (and are therefore worth more) than other modes of online teaching and training.
If you’re thinking about monetizing your knowledge with a live course, start with this episode. Get the overview of how you can pull it off, plus find out where to get even more in-depth training — with us! Click Play!
MBA2236 The Truth About Business Success You Don’t Want To Hear
It’s not that you won’t like it.
It’s that you might find it confusing, or hard to believe. But it’s true.
Also — despite being an answer of sorts — it raises some questions. But if you implement this one very basic principle, you’ll see results. We have. Other entrepreneurs we’ve worked with and coached have.
But it can take time.
This isn’t some ancient secret or a newfangled “hack” sweeping the Internet. It’s basic, bare-bones, tried-and-true business reality. It’s worked for everyone from the first street vendor to the kings of Silicon Valley. And it requires you to embrace one of our favorite maxims: “simple” doesn’t mean “easy.”
And yes, this truth is true no matter what kind of business or market you’re in.
Tune in, and hear this extremely straightforward (and extremely valuable) bit of wisdom. But remember: understanding it is one thing. But like everything in business, the key is execution. Click Play!

It’s Q&A Wednesday, and we’re helping a fellow podcaster figure out how to generate revenue. Our listener has their own podcast audience of about 500. Not massive, but not anything to sneeze at either. Is that a big enough crowd to attract some podcast sponsors? If not, then what?

We’ll discuss different ways to monetize a podcast, including (but definitely not limited to) scoring sponsorships. Wherever even a small number of people are consistently showing up for your expertise, there’s opportunity.
Learn how even a modest following can be the foundation of a great business. If 500 people consistently want to hear what you have to say, you know something worth paying for. Click Play!

MBA2233 Must Read: Expert Secrets by Russell Brunson
Not everything in every “Must Read” is a…must.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t learn something valuable from it.
Today we tackle Expert Secrets by one of the most influential personalities in entrepreneurship: Russell Brunson. In this book, Brunson teaches you how to position yourself as an expert in your field and build a strong following. It’s a comprehensive guide to creating a “tribe,” and turning expertise into revenue.
We liked most of it.
The rest of it was still worth reading! Brunson’s hard-won expertise as an authority-builder and knowledge-monetizer is unquestionable. And while Omar has a different (but equally hard-won) philosophy around generating sales, it’s more a matter of preference than “right” or “wrong.”
