Finish Your Damn Course! (FYDC)

You want to build a business that delivers value. 

But right now, you’re losing customers who can’t afford your services. And that ain’t cool.

Not having an offer for your entry-level audience is SERIOUSLY affecting your bottom-line.

So you’ve decided to create an online course. But not just ANY course—one that delivers meaningful results.

But how? By now, you've probably googled Instructional Design, have questions. (So many questions!)

Don’t worry, you're not alone.

I often hear things like this from course creators:

I’m overwhelmed! I want to transition my in-person class to online. Where do I start!?
How can I use good course design practices to ensure students get the transformation they’re looking for?
I reach a couple of different audiences with my services, but I don’t know which one to pick for my course.

You’re stuck because you’re trying to figure everything out on your own—while running your business.

Look, you're not just creating a course--you're building a business. Your course is part of your business model. It’s time to take it seriously.

Luckily, you only need four things to get going:

  • First, having a mentor is critical. You need someone a few steps ahead of you who can show you the best path forward.

  • Second, you need to be able to connect with peers who are dealing with the same things you are.

  • Third, you need someone else to hold you accountable. (We all need someone to hold our feet to the fire sometimes.)

  • Fourth, you need a blueprint...a proven process...or what I call a CourseMap™

If you're shaking your head, realizing you don’t have ANY of these things…

Then it’s no wonder you’re struggling to finish your damn course.

FYDC will give you the mentorship, community, and accountability you need to finish your course.

Janelle was very thorough going through my course and providing me with incredibly valuable feedback on what worked and what didn’t, and how to improve it. Moving forward she’s given me a detailed outline of what steps I can take to improve the next incarnation of my course. I’d highly recommend!

Here's what happens after you apply:

  1. I'll review your application and let you know if I have any questions.

  2. You'll get a link to schedule your free Scoping Call, so we can make sure the program is a good fit.

  3. Assuming there's a good fit, next you'll get an invoice to pay & reserve your spot.

  4. After your payment, you'll get a Welcome Pack that you'll need to complete within 72 hours.

  5. Finally, I'll send you on-boarding next steps, access to the forum and we'll get crackin'!


THIS Program IS for You if:

  • You're a freelancer, consultant or side-hustler with an active website, an email list, and at least one other team member.

  • Your online business is making less than $250k annually.

  • You primarily offer services: You want to diversify your offerings so you can start paying yourself more.

  • You want mentorship: You're looking for advice on creating an online course from a proven expert.

  • You're looking for accountability: You're okay being pushed outside of your comfort zone.

  • You want to be part of a community: You're looking to connect with like-minded course creators.

THIS IS NOT for You if:

  • You don't have an email list or website.

  • You're a CEO of an established agency with a team (my 1:1 consulting is a better fit).

  • Your business is making more than $250k in annual revenue.

  • You don't need accountability: You aren't willing to be pushed outside of your comfort zone.

  • You don't want mentorship: You prefer to DIY everything and don't value expert guidance.

  • You don't want to invest in your growth.

I would definitely recommend working with Janelle because you get both a structured environment and a flexible approach based on your specific needs. This NEVER felt like a cookie-cutter discussion.

Think about all the overwhelm and frustration you're experiencing right now. 

  • Now, imagine creating and launching your course in 3 months.

  • Imagine having a community of your peers giving you virtual high-fives and pitching in to review your sales page.

  • Imagine having a mentor to give you input on how to punch up your course and answer advanced course creation questions.

    Which reality do you want?  

Here's what you get when you join the program:

  • A 1:1 strategy call with me to discuss your course, your business, and your goals.

  • A private Slack room that gives you direct access to me for responses to your online course questions. Get my personal feedback via Slack’s private message capability, or ping other people who are working on their course in #general where everyone can see everyone else’ messages.

  • Every other week, there is a 75-minute live Group Session via Zoom, limited to program participants only where you can get real-time responses to your questions and challenges, along with next steps to keep you moving forward.

  • Access to my Finish Your Damn Course! curriculum in Thinkific (drip-released).

  • Worksheets and assignments to help you apply the material presented.

  • Personalized recommendations based on your specific business & audience.


To give you the personal attention you need, I’m limiting participation to 5 people per group.

This keeps the group calls wide open for going deep into your needs, and covering all the context and background information needed to do effective problem-solving and coaching.

There is no other way to get personalized support from me with your online course at this price. Sure, you could hire me at my $150+ hourly rate or pay $2500 for custom consulting, but for many that's out of reach.
