Online Course Creators Share Their Experience

In February of 2021 I reached out to several online course creators to ask them to share their stories with my audience on YouTube.

Since that time, I have had a different guest each month on the last Wednesday of the month.

The only thing I ask of them is that they tell their story.

The story of what they learned when they created their first course.

These are not big time course creators that have been creating online courses for years.

They only have a few under their belt.

The experience of being a first time course creator is still fresh in their mind.

Here are their stories.

Tracey Tait is going to tell you the truth about being an online course creator and what she learned when she created her first online course. Creating a course is not all sunshine and rainbows. There are a lot of choices you have to make during the process.

Even when you have done your homework, things can go wrong. It takes a lot of patience, persistence and a nice cuppa tea to get you through the process.

Tracey has created an amazing course that teaches business leaders how to communicate with and support their female employees and coworkers that are going through menopause. This can be a challenge not only for the leader, it can be a challenge for everyone working with women going through menopause.
