Finish Your Damn Course! (FYDC)

It’s time to turn your process into a course. 

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

On top of that, you’re stuck trading time for money.

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

By now, you've probably googled Instructional Design, but you’re not sure how to apply it.

You're not alone. I often hear things like this from aspiring 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 accountability. (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, accountability, and blueprint 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!

⬇️ Important: Read before applying ⬇️

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 at least $30k 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 business making at least $250k annually (my 1:1 consulting is a better fit).

  • Your business is making less than $30k 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.

My course has gotten 400% ROI since working with you.

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:

  • Lifetime access to the course curriculum in Thinkific (drip-released).

  • A private Slack channel that gives you direct access to me and other course creators in your cohort. 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 chat with each other.

  • Every other week, there is a 90-min Small 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.

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

  • One (1) sales page review to make sure you’re good to go before you launch

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

  • 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.
