Want To Create an Online Course but Hate Technology?

It’s no secret I kill technology. I don’t have a technological bone in my body and this was made very apparent when it was time to create my first online course and membership website. I struggled for years and wasted thousands of dollars … until I discovered Kajabi.

Kajabi is a platform that helps entrepreneurs create, market, sell, and distribute their knowledge online. Having been one of Kajabi’s first customers several years ago, I am extremely excited to bring you this interview with it’s Co-Founder, Travis Rosser.

Travis started his entrepreneurial journey selling oranges as a child on his family farm and has worked his way up to creating a platform that has allowed other entrepreneurs to generate more than 500 million dollars in revenue!

He’s also a father of three boys who’s based his entire corporate structure and culture around his family life so he never has to miss a moment with his children.

Why You Should Tune In?

I know from experience just how costly fighting technology can be. I also know from experience just how profitable knowledge-commerce is.

Online courses and membership websites create passive income and it’s widely known that passive income leads to more time and freedom to live the life you want.

What Can You Expect?

In this episode, you’ll get to hear Travis’ full entrepreneurial journey, my story of struggling to make other platforms work in the beginning and how Kajabi saved me, why Travis protects the company culture he’s worked intentionally to create, and how Kajabi can help you stop being afraid of technology and start making money selling your knowledge.

Don’t Forget: Kajabi is offering a free trial AND a 15% discount off a membership exclusively for listeners of the SweetLife Entrepreneur podcast!

It’s Almost Course Launch Season … Are You Ready?

We’re coming up on another season of course launches and program enrollments. Are you confident in your ability to look past the shiny bonuses and crazy discounts to pick the course that is the perfect fit for your life and business at this exact moment in your journey?

Well, don’t worry if you’re not because that’s exactly what we’re covering in this week’s episode!

Why You Should Tune In?

I would venture to say every entrepreneur has been lured into purchasing a course or program they didn’t really need and, while it may have been loaded with valuable content, it didn’t yield the expected results.

Taking the wrong course, or even the right course at the wrong time, leads to a loss of time and money.

Both of those resources are extremely valuable and I want to make sure you never waster either of them ever again!

What Can You Expect?

I’ll explain five ways you can get really clear on what courses or programs are the perfect fit for you and your business right now so you don’t become distracted or lose any more time or money.

What you won’t get is me telling you my courses are the perfect fit for you. They may or may not be, but after this episode, you’ll be able to determine that for yourself.
