The Create Your Course Workshop
Turn Your Passion and Knowledge Into an Impressive Online Course That Sells Itself
Attention: Coaches, Consultants, Experts, Artists, and Healers…
Discover how this Star Wars Digital Effects Artist can help you package and sell your expertise as an online course to make more money and impact more people’s lives…
If you watched Star Wars back in the 1990s all the way to the end, you would’ve seen my name in the credits.
Yes, I worked on Star Wars.
I was a Digital Effects Artist for George Lucas’ Industrial Light & Magic. It was a great career. I helped to create some of the biggest movies of the 1990s – Star Wars, Jurassic Park, and Twister to name just a few.
But in the year 2001, I quit.
I had just got married and started a family with my new husband.
Working 6 day weeks for 70+ hours in the office was not what I wanted for my life.
I wanted to stay home and be a mother to my new daughter.
But I also still wanted to have a professional identity and be creative. Just not in an office, and not working someone else’s long hours.
The entrepreneurial path was not clear cut for me…
Eventually I found a niche for myself as the “Shopping Cart Queen” – a title I cheekily bestowed upon myself 🙂
The business was simple – I would set up online shopping cart systems for new website owners.
My brand and positioning got me off to a great start. I’d go to conferences and people knew my name, and wanted to talk to me. I was getting invitations to speak at marketing events.
And I was getting clients!
Everything probably looked pretty great from the outside looking in. And it was for a while.
But what people didn’t see was that my time was taken up with one-on-one client work.
The money coming in was real up and down…
Sometimes I would have too many clients after a conference. A nice problem to have you might think.
Except when I had 5 client calls back to back in between taking my daughter to and from pre-school and play groups. And then a client no-showed or had to reschedule – aaggh! I just wanted to tear my hair out some days!
Other times weeks might go by without any shopping cart setup work to bring money in.
Constantly trying and hoping to find clients was almost more stressful than working 70 hours a week back when I worked for George Lucas!
And giving out my prices? Oh that was no fun at all.
Lots of people seemed interested in what I had to offer. But only a few could actually afford to pay what my time was worth.
Truly the worst part about the business was leaving my little daughter to go away to marketing events. I would only be gone a few days, but she would ask my husband every day I was gone “When is Momma coming home?”
That just tore my heart out.
What started out as a fun and exciting business eventually became tiring and draining.
I couldn’t duplicate myself.
And I couldn’t scale myself either.
There are only 24 hours in a day, and I didn’t want to work all of them!
One day I got a new idea for an online course…
WordPress was a new website software that held the promise of making website creation easy for people with no technical skills.
I decided I wanted to try and create a course around building websites with WordPress.
In 2008, I ran the Website Creation Workshop for the first time.
I sent a few emails to my list about it and then…
I made $23,000 on my first course launch!
I was in heaven!
I ran it again a year later, and sold over $100,000.
I was onto something…
I shifted all my efforts into building up the Website Creation Workshop.
My online course was successful enough that I finally could stop doing one-on-one service work.
Over the next few years, I grew the Website Creation Workshop business significantly.
I moved out of my small town and relocated to San Diego, California.
My husband and I were able to send our daughter to one of the top high schools in the state of California.
And I have been able to spend as much time as I wanted with my daughter in her school and acting activities.
I could take her to auditions and volunteer to help out with her theater productions.
She is now an Acting Major attending college in Los Angeles.
Helping my daughter to reach her dreams was one of my goals when I started on this path.
The Website Creation Workshop has generated over $7,000,000 since I first ran it many years ago.
I have empowered thousands of people to create their own websites, and in many cases, start their own online businesses.
It’s a great feeling!
And over time I realized that…
I could help even more if I taught people how to a create successful online course!
Online courses let you help more people and build a bigger reputation for your expertise. You can multiply your impact, get paid more for your time and stop trading dollars for hours.
There’s a huge market for online courses and it’s rapidly expanding.
People value education. Online courses, no matter what the cost, are cheaper than other educational opportunities.
People are buying online courses more and more, and this increasing every year.

In Module 4 you will choose and set up the online classroom for your course. We will go over popular course delivery platforms (both paid and free) and I will help you choose the best one for you.
Community support is a great feature of an online course. Facebook Groups are a popular community add-on to almost any course today. And for some audiences, LinkedIn Groups are a good choice too. These are optional, but popular, course add-ons.
- Easily upload your online course and setup your online classroom
- Run an effective group that keeps your students engaged and supporting each other
Module 5: Setting Up Your Online Sales System
Setup Your Sales System
You need a great sales page to convince people to register for your course. You also need an online payment system to charge credit cards and get money into your bank account.
I will give you my simple sales page outline that all great sales pages follow. And I will deconstruct one of my sales pages so you can see the thinking behind it.
You can build your sales page in WordPress like I do. Or you can use a page builder tool. I will show you the most popular ones.
The most common online payment methods today are Stripe and Paypal. Both accept all credit cards.
Some membership systems offer sales pages and can process payments too. This eliminates the need for a page builder, as well as Stripe and Paypal. I will help you choose which method is best for you.
