Must-Read
As a course creator, you care about getting people results.
And not only about making money from your students.
You want them to use what you teach and succeed.
Is that a fair assumption?
Yes?! Good!
In an ideal world, your students show up to every live session, complete every assignment, and get the results you promised.
But it's not like that, unfortunately.
Just because students enrolled doesn't mean they'll show up and take action.
Even if they've spent a considerable amount of money on your course.
In every CBC I've run or taken, I've seen some students participate only sporadically or disengage completely.
Even if most students love the course, this sets off alarm bells in the head of the course creator.
What if they aren't getting value? What if they ask for a refund?
You want to do everything you can to make sure nobody gets left behind.
For example...
  • Regularly remind your students of the big why
  • Give space to troubleshoot and overcome roadblocks
  • Check in personally to find out what's going on
I found that personal check-ins often reveal that the problem is not with the course but something else entirely.
Life is busy for your students, and it sometimes just gets in the way.
You have to accept that everyone is on their own journey. And that you can't spoon-feed transformation.
Then you can let go of the pressure of having to transform every single one of your students.
