"For one two three seven people yet then what you're saying is essential you can't you can't decide that you're going to now start doing all of this whatever. Your marketing strategy is when you. You have no clue if it's going to work for eight people right so what I I did. Just to make it Just give my own example. The very first thing I ever did when I was going to launch my six year. Songwriting class which is what it was called. Still call that is I had one songwriter. Come over to my house as a bring me a starbucks in exchange for starbucks. I'm going to teach you everything I know about writing a grown. Tv She's like. Oh thank God yes right. She comes over. I sit with her and then I I. I started sitting with a few more songwriters than they loved it and then I had ten people come over one afternoon on a Sunday and they came to my living room. I taught like a three hour workshop. I Times I then rented a theater nearby with fifty seats. It costs me about one hundred fifty bucks at the theater and that was a Tuesday morning when the theater was not using their theater. And I fifty songwriters come right And it just kind of grew from there until finally I was like I think I'm ready to put this out online. But that validation process was so great for me because at the end of every classes at what else did I not teach that you would have wanted to know. I never even told me that so I was sort of building the class by showing up in front of my people and saying what else what else. What and it's funny. You don't hear those stories. We hear about the launches but there's always work behind the scenes leading up to it to validate test. I mean even with my l. set course. I've been teaching in a classroom for a year before I went and put the course together and I've been tutoring people so I had that one one of what else. What are you struggling with? What else can I help with? And I think that it doesn't need to take a year but it can be very very simple and and really I think the core component which identifying with the starbucks and then the theater is are you willing to invest in this and it can be financial. I think that's the best way to really vowed if they're willing to put money down for you to teach them something. That's the best kind of positive reinforcement feedback you can get out but are you willing to invest your time effort and money in learning this from me and if you've got a few people saying yes to that that's usually a strong indication that there's something there and keep in mind. I was only getting often three to ten people to be in a classroom despite a ridiculous amount of marketing for my Elsa thing or a few people to do one on one tutoring but I knew when I went online one or two people in my community could mean thousands around the world so I sent I was just GonNa say that and so I love that you also just said it doesn't have to take a year it really doesn't like once. I met with a few people one on one a few weeks later. I was like you know what I'm going to invite people over. I think it could fit ten people in my old living on my old house so we did that it worked. I did that a second time and then I was like. Oh this work you know. I'm just going to rent this theater so in a matter of months Greg like. I had gone from a few people at my dining room table to a little workshop in my living room to a theater and then I said I think I'm GonNa put this out online and what you just said is exactly right. I then went into a completely cold audience of the world right. The world of humans who had identified themselves as songwriters which has many so with that. I was now ready and I wanted to do a big launch. I had validated it. We had had a couple of hundred people come through the theater and my house and they liked it and I had like kind of worked out what I was teaching or so I thought now it's so much more advanced than where it was but I was ready and so I thought okay. How am I going to do a big launch? And even that you know how long it took eight weeks. This is what I did. I had zero people on an email list zero. My baby was due in September. It was June. I said okay. I've got this summer to launch a class. So what I'm GonNa do is three simple things I said. I'm to create one Freebie one piece of content. That songwriters would would go. That's interesting right. That would be like a really good building block towards the course so I created a thing it was like turn remember. It was like the ten things you need to know to license. Your Music Film and TV was was cool. I like typed it on a word doc. Basically I set up my very first lead page which I was like. It was painstaking at first. Now it's so easy and you can learn it in a second but I didn't know what I was doing but I did. That and basically people could download this ten thing that you do for licensing music in exchange for their email address so I ran a facebook ad knowing nothing about baseball guys. I think I've spent fifty bucks and one thousand and forty people downloaded that thing so that worked and then after six weeks I sent those one thousand forty people an email saying that I was GonNa do a Class A webinar. I didn't know what I was doing. I was terrified. I had never used software before and I was. I was now eight months pregnant so I look cool at all. I love the additional time line of the pregnancy and birth. This whole thing that was like Schmidt saying I was like so hot like the summer. I'm I'm pregnant and I didn't have slides because I didn't know how to make them. It was just me talking to a camera and a few hundred people show up and at the end. I said I didn't have any smooth sales technique no slides instead. I'm going to offer my class and I just went out there on a limo. It's nine ninety. Seven thousand bucks. Can you believe that but I said it was going to be a year. That would co teach them for a year and I had created some classes where I was just. It was just audio like me just talking basically with nothing else no videos just me talking but I said that I would show up in a facebook. Group live for them. That was really. I guess the whole thing I was telling and I had the cart open for three weeks. I never do that now. I do everything so differently. Now but by the end of the three weeks one hundred forty seven people signed up. Wow that's amazing but now if I do a launch like the last launch we did in January for that same class we made one point two million dollars and we do it a little differently now souped up version the Tesla version. But you don't want to start there right. I couldn't. You can only be where you are no breakdown for me. What did I say? How can people understand? Because I'm sure you have a much more fancy way of explaining what I said. I mean we. We teach people as they join thinking of it. We've got all sorts of ways of teaching and coaching and guiding them to do different ways of either launching or doing all. My personal stuff has always actually been evergreen where I've never really done the big. Here's the launch closed the cart. I've actually just put it out there. Evergreen where it's all the time and I think it's it's different things for different industries and markets minds evergreen because people are writing the all set four times a year. So I guess I could do for launches but it's kind of thing when if someone wants to study for the sat tonight and Mike Cart is an opening for two weeks. They're just going to buy a competitor course because they're like. I've got this weekend book to study so I'm buying the course so depends different animal. Yeah definitely and I do think that the difference there is launches work really well where there's sort of a motivational component like fitness health weight. Loss that kind of thing is like a really great one where we all need sort of like a kick in the pants to do it so having that cart closer that deadline or that launch really helps get a whole bunch of people on board to to sign up for something whereas I think maybe making a sourdot. You've got a free Saturday afternoon. You Go Online. You find this hour coast. You WanNa buy it now. Because you're like I WANNA makes our to- tonight so sometimes it lends itself better to that evergreen thing but I think the key things that I'm taking away from what you're sharing is you really started with. Wanting to help people. In values he started with. Okay what can I give away for free here? That's really going to help people and You're running an ad but not just an ad to sell something. You're running an outright out of the gate of what can I give people that I can show them value? Start to build trust so you started with building trust. He started with building trust in giving them that checklist that they can get for free. Then your next invitation to continue to build trust is that Webinar and and it's funny because you say oh it wasn't super flashy and there were no slides but I actually think in a of ways that builds more trust and we even see more now with like instagram. Live like people with their instagram stories. And stuff is when. It's shot from a shaky phone. You know without super professional edited stuff. It's far more authentic and people trust that more so now they see you talking to cameron saying. Hey I I've done this I'm real. This isn't super polished. But I know what I'm talking about you've built a ton of trust and so then when you throw it out there. How about nine ninety seven for a year? Everybody wants to work with you so I think starting that way is you can always Polish it up and clean and test an iterative later but just starting of what can I give someone that will help them. And they'll see value right out of the gate. Usually some sort of free thing. It could be a free mini course. A free download make sure they get value. And that's something that's actually going to deliver value. Which usually means to? It shouldn't be something that's going to take them months to action. You want something. They can action really quickly and then from there continue to talk to them and build trust and work towards whether it's the evergreen sale or that big launch that's And I I love the era continuing to say it's not about how slick it is. It's about the realness of it and people can feel that and you could feel that those of you listening you know you know the difference so trust that trust that people they really want something that's honest and that matters more than all the bells and whistles and what I do now is like a five day challenge and it's basically like five webinars and really it's ten because there's like five days of the challenge and then the cart opens and then I come back for another five days and it's again no slides no scripts not for me for this girl. So happening is people go just spent ten days with this person and I really have a sense of who she is and remember. That sales is intimacy meant so if you can create intimacy and people go you know. I I know her now and I like her and I trust her and I'm feeling like whatever I've gotten out of this last few days is more than I expected and imagine where I would be if I stuck it out for a little bit longer. So it's really I mean. We scratched the surface today. But it really is a huge opportunity and when I think about the thing that does the best is my courses hands down so you got to look at courses you guys everyone of the House of course inside of you. It's what got me to quit my job as a lawyer and which I loved but got me into giving me the freedom to do whatever I wanted and so I'm sold okay. I'm sold to okay. Great so is there anything that you WANNA leave us with today. Yeah you know I just thinking about this and maybe going deeper on some of these topics. I'll put a few a few resources together to help people out who are thinking of getting started on courses and we can just look at how about a think if dot com.

"So it just creates value for everyone. I love what you're saying it it. It's so good and it's so true. I mean everything comes down to word of mouth everything so I love how there was such a through line in what you just said about. Please please invest in getting people the result because that ultimately is what's GonNa sell it for you the next time and you want people to just keep building and sharing upon what you're doing and then you really don't have to sell anything anymore. It's being sold for you. Everyone's like oh I did this and I got this result. Great you should do. It just makes sense. So let's go to the next thing. I feel like a lot of people listening right now. We're going to get into their head and they're gonNA get overwhelmed and say well. This all sounds pretty amazing. It sounds like Kathy. You know has made millions of dollars from courses and Greg's made tens and tens of millions of dollars of courses but I'm not like them and I don't know how to create a course and this feels like way out there and away out of reach and you were really kind before and said it could be really simple like is the result. Just helping. Someone did a sweater. I don't think that we think that whatever we know is enough. I think that we are convinced that in order for me to teach something I have to be the absolute best expert in the world. What are some examples? Maybe you could give of course creators that you've seen that have done really well who they're not the Dalai Lama. They're not the Messiah the very best person in an. How can you help us understand? That imposter syndrome is really holding us back. When there is also argued that we can share your. I love that. That topic to and You know just to clarify to on on talking. Some of those numbers is and how big this opportunity is is. Were I think a platform? We were serving a lot of course creators. But we're tiny piece of the market. I think we'll do. We'll see about three hundred to four hundred million dollars in courses sold through a platform this year but that number is doubling year-over-year so the the opportunity and the size of the market is amazing. And we're just a tiny piece of like I couldn't even say we own a percentage of the you're learning space. It's such a huge industry. So there's so much there for people and there are so many people flooding online that you're right you don't have to be the the preeminent expert in your field to go in and create a course and be successful with it but more importantly you don't have to be that amazing expert to add value right. In fact a lot of people are looking to learn from someone. I look for this and business. I'm not looking for to learn from the CEO who's twenty years ahead of me and hundred billion trillion dollar company. I'm looking to learn from the one who's a year or two ahead exactly is the billion dollar company which is sort of a next step. It's just a little bit ahead of us and so you really can jump in with the kind of things that people want to pick your brain over a coffee about say. Hey you're really good at this. I want to learn from you on this. So icy people in in all sorts of areas and again we talked about sort of those important steps that I see in in. Really great course creators. You don't need to do all those things You definitely not to do any or all of them. When you're getting started I think carrying about your customer and getting results is important. But there's no specific set of steps that you absolutely have to follow in order to be successful like. I said I see a lot of people that hula-hoop that was Deanne love. I think from HOOP LOVERS IN AUSTRALIA. And she literally just had her iphone in a park and was shooting herself hooping but that's how she got started and now she has a team and she's growing it I saw recently a Grad student who came out as a physical therapist just getting started her career launchers course and does one hundred and twenty thousand dollars in her first week of sales. So we're seeing all of these little stories of people who weren't confident that they were going to do as well as they did tried. It definitely didn't do everything perfect. The first time didn't have a super well produced course but got it out there. Got It in front of people and got great results out of it. So not every launch is like that my personal course. We put it up. I built the thing in thirty days because my brother gave me a deadline. He's like I know you're working hard but you've got thirty days before we launch this. We sold it for twenty nine dollars and I think we had ten sales in our first month so it was. You know less than three hundred dollars but it was ten sales. It was ten students saying.

I didn't know what I was doing. I was pregnant with my third daughter had never seen a webinar never led a Webinar but I did my very first launch and it was you know how to you write music for film and TV. And the very hearse launch. I made one hundred. Forty seven thousand dollars. I couldn't believe it poorly. Wow and I did. I did think to myself who the heck am I to do this? There's got that imposter syndrome or you're thinking yeah the one to go and teach everyone that. I'm doing something with it but why me to teach everyone. Yeah and I I owned it for for a while actually because I thought oh other songwriters who are who are ahead of me are going to think. Why is she doing that okay? You know I'm the one who's you know I'm on tour? I'm like yeah but Taylor. Swift is in teaching this class and Okay so all teach it and you know we've had hundreds of students their songs have been on. Tv Grey's anatomy and commercials like McDonald's and eighty thousand dollars for an ad. I mean thank God thank God I pushed forward. Let's just go to one more piece of this when people tell me. I'm going to start an online course. I'm like awesome. That's so cool. I'm so glad that you're getting with the Times. That's so great. And then they tell me so. I'm just GONNA put it out there and I said Whoa wait a minute. You know if you build it. They don't come like you've gotta get like there's a few things that have to happen before you ever say. Hey here's a button to buy something. So can you help us walk through? What are those things that actually start to make a runway? So that when you go to offer your course there's some trust your some established relationship with some of the things that we should do ahead of time. Well I think there are so many different ways to approach this. You know. I've seen people where they go all out on the big law trade and they and that's often the people who've done it before they know how to do it but I have seen people where they put something together. They share it. They get a few people in they start to deliver results. And it's sort of a slow ongoing kind of virtuous cycle of I get results. You know they don't have one hundred thousand dollar launch in their first week or anything but they're getting out there and they're they're getting it in front and they're getting people they're getting results. So one way is to build the audience. I and start sharing content. That woman I referred to the physical therapist. She spent a year leading up to that week on just posting a couple of times a day on instagram. So it wasn't a a full-time thing by any stretch. But she was building an audience on Instagram. And she started from there. Then directing those people too. I believe a really really early. She didn't even have an email list a few weeks before her launch but she started building that list pretty quickly by directing people to some free resource capturing their email and then she started to build this small email list that she could actually launch to the other. Really cool thing. She did that. I see work well with a lot of people is to enlist the help of partners so finding others in your space figuring out who in your industry or space at your potential customers or students are following and trying to partner with them to see if they'd like to share it with their audience. That can be an amazing way to get. These things built quickly. But the other cool way I see people getting started is is sort of the the lean startup approach or pre-selling effectively or getting people to commit to sign up for your program. Well it's really still in its Beta phase. Where you're you're really testing and you're saying you get to be a part of the creation of this program and I think people are more and more accepting of that idea in fact there's some studies that show the value something more if they're part of the creation of it not even having a finished product than just saying. Would you like to sign up and pay? Here's what I'm GONNA teach you. Here's the transformation of the result. Get for you but you'll be part of the journey getting there so I've got the base curriculum here and I've got that first lesson and then we're going to do live webinars or we're going to hop on a group coaching call. But I'll get you there and help you get there but you're going to help me by giving me feedback along the way and making helping me make it better and that way you get to build it well actually generating some revenue and learn from people. Yeah I love that and I really want to pull apart what you're saying in in two sections because there's one place where you're not ready for a multi six-figure launch. Yeah you need to validate the course right. So there's two chunks. There's are you in the place where you've already validated the course. And now you know that if you're GONNA put this out there you don't want to just put it out there. You WanNa make sure that a lot of people by which means. There's things that you're going to do to create that runway but if you haven't yet validated this course if you haven't gotten results.

"That was like for you that journey? Yeah it was I mean the the lawyer thing was I loved it. It was a ton of fun but then I saw this course starting eventually. The course was that it was always a side project. It was a hobby at work on it sort of a little bit of time on the weekend or after work or if I was on vacation and the chorus actually started to generate more revenue than my practice as a lawyer and I was working for one of the largest law firms. Doing you know. Ipo's and securities and capital markets law raising millions or billions of dollars for companies. But the course was doing more so that was sort of that first sign of wow there really is something here and then when everyone else started calling and saying or a bunch of other people calling and saying we want to do the same thing you're doing how did you do it. We actually started trying to do this for them. In a very Service oriented way. Like I'd go to someone's office and we'd film them and then I would edit the we'd put it into a call. That's a lie. I wouldn't even get on the phone for them and sell the course to company e places that I thought might WanNa buy their course so we were really just bootstrapping and and really Kinda scrappy and do whatever it takes to kind of make this happen and tested out and it was. We were a few years really before we got to the point of we should really go back to the original idea and kind of build a really simple to use thing that anyone can just jump in and do it themselves. Easily amazing well. Let's talk about that a little bit when you're talking to people about courses and you've gotten to see so many the staff that I've seen thank you. Fiqh are that you've had over forty thousand course creators on the platform with thirty million courses taken. I mean even one percent of that is is a lot right. That's a lot of success. So what do you think from where you sit? What do you see that makes course successful? It's interesting that often people think what topics are successful. And I know you know. That's not because you mentioned all these different areas of from everything from pottery through. I mean there's someone who's doing amazingly well teaching Hula hooping hearing that. Oh my God yeah like like a team and traveling the world and teaching Hula hooping. It's it's wild. Yeah so it really can be that any area of passion or interest that you have and like you said if there's something that you do well other people WanNa know how you do it so the topic can be all over the place. I think where people do really well is actually when they care a lot about the students and the learners and the results because you can throw thousands or millions into advertising and marketing but if you're not delivering a really amazing product and results for people. It tends to falter than example. I love to use his Netflix. I mean they spent two point nine billion on marketing last year. And you can do amazing things with that. But they spent fifteen billion on content. Because they know it's the delivery of degrade experience after you get that new customer that actually builds the whole business and makes it sustainable and and creates and way the Internet works now with testimonials and referrals. And is if you don't deliver that amazing value you don't really have a scalable business but do it's amazing how it can really take off. I love that you're saying that. And it's such a great example and Net flicks. So let's talk about. How do we do that? What have you seen that makes for a great user experience? What are the things that the excellent course creators are doing to make sure that their students walk? There is one of the first things I see. I'd say Sir there's four or five things I see people doing. The first one is really doing an amazing job of welcoming people in so once. That customer makes a choice to work with you. Whether it's you know signing up for something year giving away for free especially the transition point when they've put any money to work with you jumping on that opportunity because you really have this really small window of time where you can make an amazing first impression before someone pays. It's kind of considered marketing. And there's a bit of a question mark on trust there and but in those few moments after someone a few hours few days after someone puts their credit card down. There's this real opportunity to create an amazing first impression. So PC people even people teaching thousands of students where they're calling up most if not all of their students in that first day or that first week after they've murdered purchase and it might just be two or three minute phone call Or a quick video they send them But they're really making it an amazing. Welcome experience to say you appreciate. You took a chance on me. And you're GonNa work with me And it can also be a great way of learning because you can ask them. Hey why did you choose me all the people out there? Or what resonated with you and that'll help you refine and improve your program and your marketing. That's excellent and such a good point. It's like right. After people put their credit card down a lot of times like you said I mean you can just see this. So intuitively people spend all this energy on the launch the marketing now people are in and it's like crickets right and that's when people start to have buyer's remorse it's like oh where is everyone now. Oh now there's all these modules had to get through it. What is that second module even mean? Where's the homework now? I feel like I'm Outta here so a lot of times when people don't really welcome their class winds up happening is people want refunds right. But if you're if you're right there you know sorta like welcoming someone into your home reading them at the door making them feel like you care. You know you're happy they've arrived and you're GonNa make sure that they feel comfortable. Take off your glasses of wine. So what else? He said there were four or five things. What are a few of those other things? Yeah and I love. You said buyer's remorse because I think it's about turning it into buyers joy but the next thing I see is that that on boarding or giving them clarity so a lot of people across any demographic when they WANNA learn something. They're going to Google Youtube search engine. They're going to look. But when you do that you're in what's called sort of exploratory unguided learning and that's not as effective as having spirit animal or coach to guide you along and show the journey so. I like to say you know. Be What they signed up for. They didn't pay you to give an exploratory. Learning thing of you know. Here's a bunch of things learn at your leisure wherever you want and you know hunting pack and figure out what you want. Give them some guidance. So tell them where to go. I let them know what the end result is going to be. And how you're going to get them there and then start them on the path one step at a time and a lot of really good ways you can do it but the easiest is just saying. Here's where we're going to be going and here's where you need to start and so I find that's a really important thing and it can be as simple as sending them an email saying. Here's where I'm going to take you. This is what we've promised in our marketing and this is the transformation we're GONNA create. Step one start here step to then you're going to go here and just show them the first couple of steps in that journey and that makes feel a lot safer to pass. They made this purchase or they joined your your program and you're going to guide them there. Yeah I love that makes so much sense like it's simple but it's important but it also means that of course creator. You know what those things are. Take some time. Put some thought into it and say like if you're going from. A to B to see this. This is what we're doing and and that. I think and I WANNA ask you this as I'm GonNa put a pin in it but I wanna I wanNA come back to this because I think a lot of people then get overwhelmed like well. How can I be of course crater? Then I'm not a perfect course maker and I don't know what those steps aren't I think. Sometimes we over complicate the something super simple. Do you agree. Yes definitely yeah in fact when I do this what I start with is I just I take one piece of paper and I limit myself to one and I right at the top. What's the transformation or change in? Someone's life I wanNA give them as part of this course because that's what people are signing up for. They're not sending up to watch a bunch of videos or take your program. They're signing up for the change in their life promotion or weight loss or a new skill or ability or hobby. And then I just right. What steps did they need to go through on the piece of paper and I might break it down to a couple sub steps and that's it becomes sort of the basis of my teaching curriculum. That's really it I think so often. We don't realize that what people are buying is not a process. They're buying a result and so people will be like well. You know the launch didn't work. I said what did you do. Why told people you know. Sign up for this program. I'm gonNA teach you Algebra. I'm GonNa teach you addition of an it's hugh subtraction calculus but. What's the result? Oh well the result was. I walked up to be able to budget. I want them to have more freedom. They can take more trips because they can have a way of making their money work for them. It's like well then. Don't tell me in the process. Remain like just tell me what the result is. I think that people don't get that and what you just said is people are buying transformation and it can be very simple right like I'm GonNa you're gonNA. You'll be able to knit sweater for your daughter or something like that out of even better simpler the better. Yeah so going back to your last and then we have a lot more fun things to discuss but so we talked about. How important is to welcome people? We talked about how important it is. Just give them a sense. That here's where they're add. Here's where they're headed. What else is important? Another big one. I'm finding more and more is community is having some kind of community around your course or membership or brand and so can be symbols a facebook group we have communities now and so people can do it there but some way of welcoming people into your tribe of people who are participating and learning together and it can be a huge group of twenty thousand people or it could be a tiny group of two or three in fact I see people do both if they have a say a twenty thousand facebook group than they'll create many groups within that say. Here's your accountability buddies that you're going to work together but bringing people into some kind of community yet lead you that. I think that that's so much of what this is all about in. You just had accountability. But as we do we do a lot of stuff like that and we sort of take it to the next level we have different coaches that are assigned in our program to different people as well. I think the accountability and that peer pressure could be a positive pressure where people are just there to hold space and support you and keep you accountable and the studies show that if you're kept accountable you're so much more likely or ninety five percent more likely actually to get a result. You have accountability. Yeah it's very powerful. Yeah is there anything else you wanted to say about that before we move on you already given us a lot of what what you think makes a course work while the other two really cool things. I see just really quickly as is. I mean making sure that you're delivering the results that you promise are trying to get people. They're doing everything can To get those results. Because that's like I said really well at drives the whole virtuous circle here and then the last one is that is. I'm seeing a little more now. Not Enough of but I think it's super cool and it goes to that community pieces creating opportunity or space for your successful students or alumni or even people who are partway through to teach others and kind of become your ambassadors within your community to go and help and Sharon coach and train and teach others in that it them because they get to develop mastery what they've just learned from you but of course it benefits you and the whole community because now you've got this team of ambassadors who were out there Helping.

Wow what an incredible message so much hope to you. Know he's been sober now. Twenty eight years anyway.

And she's like. Why do you have to move? Why do you have to leave? La Now telling her the reasons why and she's like Kath so much of this is not even real like all these things you're saying. Why would you leave for that reason or that reason and you guys I realize that sometimes our deepest oldest fears can be so sneaky and signposted. Yesterday on Instagram. She realized none of it was real and set yourself free and so I just invite you not to make decisions from a place of lack or fear but to always make decisions from a place of what lights you up. What makes you feel the most expansive your enthusiasm because it doesn't lead you astray. You know I was talking to Jason Mraz last week. I can't wait to air that episode.

The most practical thing you can do is do the things that make you feel like you're in a state of joy and it's so simple but it's so true. I'm excited about today's episode. Because a few years ago I gave myself permission even though I was really scared and I started my first online course and it was for songwriters. I was teaching songwriters how to break into the business of licensing their music to film and TV and that was the first endeavor that took me on to make seven figures and as a songwriter had been making a decent living three to four hundred thousand dollars a year but once I started teaching songwriters how to do what I was doing. Everything changed and then it was only after that that. I started a podcast and now I've gone on to teach so many other programs from podcasting courses now. I HAVE MY AMAZING COACHING PROGRAMS. As well which are sort of like high touch programs not so much courses but this version of course for sure and so today we have on someone who is really one of the most genius people in the world at helping people create their own courses.

You're definitely GONNA WANNA take some without further ado. Please welcome the Amazing Greg Smith Greg. Thank you so much for joining me today. Thank you copy. It's a pleasure to be here. I'm so happy to have you and we've been using fake and it's so great and for those of you who don't know what if again and you don't know who Greg Is. We're going to get into that right now. So why don't you tell us a little bit about where this all began for? Sure so I was going to law school and I started teaching and tutoring on the side to help cover tuition and pay off some of my student loans and so initially it was just you know five or ten people in a classroom for the weekend teaching them how to take the sat exam and then I was also doing some one on one tutoring and I just kept finding that every like I think so many of us where People WanNa pick our brain or We help them with things. Or we have a skill or a passion or knowledge or expertise. We want to share Everyone would come to me. And their first few hours of conversations or questions were always the same. Because they're all starting from very similar place so I put together a blog just to help them and put it out in the world ears all the stuff I always get asked and eventually that went turned into an online course and I was really lucky. My my roommate and brother. is a software developer or at the time remain Still brother use the software developer. So we we built it together so I built the course content and then he built the software to handle it but even having developer in house it was pretty painful to build it all and so that was sort of the first clue that there was something here where we could do a better job and make this easier for people. I mean we looked everywhere. I wanted something off the shelf software. That could just make it really easy to build my course put it on what I wanted. I wanted on my site with my brand. My course basically build my own business and then go and deliver these courses to people and couldn't find anything so we built our own and then pretty quickly that became quite successful to huge impact in a lot of students lives but the really cool thing is we started seeing other people reaching out to us saying. Hey can you build our course help us? Create solid course. That's how we started That was kind of the impetus behind building. Think if it was to help solve that problem for other people as well. And what year was that The course was up in two thousand five two thousand six. When I was in law school there was a lot of inbound infants from people looking to build their own stuff but we didn't actually get around to starting it until two thousand twelve so I went on to finish law school practiced as a lawyer And then eventually two thousand twelve. We started thinking. Gosh so explain to people who don't know how would you explain. What if it does right so It that problem that I had. Which is it makes it really easy for you to create your own course or courses or membership site where you can take your skill or knowledge or passion whether it's in you know a hobby or fitness or business or or any area where you have some some skill or expertise you WANNA share with people and then build a business around it or add it to your existing business we more and more. We see people even adding courses to their existing businesses but to get it up and running Easily where you don't have to be a software developer. You don't have to know when you can just self-serve jumping set it all up really quickly. We've got a whole team to help you here to get stuck on anything and then get it up and going and get it out there and build a business around teaching people what you love. Yeah it's so cool and it's just amazing. How like you're you don't even know at the time what you're really creating. What you were really creating eventually was this unbelievable rocket ship that helps other people. Teach the things that they have knowledge around. Let's talk about what that magic is because often we think oh. I need to know the fifteen stairs before I could even begin to take the first step and look what happened there. Yeah you're right. It's interesting as I certainly didn't look that far ahead early days. I mean creating the chorus it was. Let's just grab a little camera and start shooting some video in my living room. You know at the time. I didn't have a camera on my cellphone like we all do now but I still I see people now just picking up their cell phone and starting to shoot the course on that. I mean. Obviously you can. You can do more than that but I just got a camera. My living room started shooting videos teaching people what I wanted in fact even before that I was really just doing voice over powerpoint slides and then using mat to actually build out the course so starting with the tools I had on hand and going with it and building something out now we make a lot of that stuff a lot easier for people but but those days it was go buy a camera tripod shoot against my living room wall and what some voice over powerpoint slides and then the website around it and I actually think that that is. We're all the juices because to me any kind of sale any kind of learning any kind of connection. It's intimacy right so it's it's about creating real value and the real value is really. What's coming from you you know? And how you're creating that kind of back and forth you know communication and and your students really. It's not really about how fancy the video is And so I think that that's amazing. Though that you went ahead and created something and what I've also learned in my own journey. Is that for everything you do? There will be a line of people around the block. Who WanNa to know how you do what you do. And that's what's really fascinating and that's what I think makes it so that I think there's so many of us who have courses inside of us because if you're a potter if you're a candle maker if you are good at organizing homes for everything you do. There are people who WanNa know how you do it. So how do you explain what.

S. treasuries are the riskless asset of choice but yes there's certainly a sign that the fed could be inclined to cut rates again I don't think that is the panacea though that will we're we're looking for it's not the same medicine for everything that ails you what we're seeing in the markets now is not a liquidity crunch the problem we're facing is not a matter of rates being too high or the availability of capital what we're seeing now is the fear of that we're gonna supply chain disruption in consumer confidence disruptions I keep saying it are you gonna be willing to book a cruise right now or go to the movie theater even if you go to the supermarket I don't know the interest rates being a quarter or half a point lower really affects that consumer behavior the small modicum of affected might actually create a bigger panic is we should show a sign of weakness there so yes there is a lot of talk about what the fed can do to resolve this I don't think they're the doctor looking for right now though yeah so it is the market seems to be pricing that in there now they are so and ultimately depending how short lived this whole hullabaloo is hello blue is we could see that benefit the market in a big way on the other side of that whether that's six about months from now or twenty four months now one of the sectors that really got whacked pretty hard in this it is the financial sector the bank specifically but lower rates can benefit parts parts of their business and overall corporate America so once we get this imminent fear out of the headlines then lower rates can help the recovery which could be very swift it's just a matter of when do we start I do believe that once we have the ability to go shopping again with confidence and sit in there playing again with comfort I think the recovery and earnings can be very quick there's a lot of issue are lot areas in the market they're simply deferring sales deferring earnings to future quarters some are lost because they are spending that will be recovered but if you say all right I'm living somewhere in Asia and I am deferring my car purchase because everyone's run around masks that will leave my house well you still need that car you just might differ that purchase to the third quarter or even a two thousand twenty one lower interest rates and economic stimulus that will see not just the U. S. but around the world will help that the steepness and wrote repeatedly of of that recovery and I would look to see other stimulus as well what might help the consumer is a suspension of some payroll taxes and U. S. as well but again that's not gonna make somebody's scared of being in public go go out and spend money right thank you all right so is in the event that there is a reduction in rates what we're already not getting very much on our cash that how much should an investor holding cash well you know you can take that to you to also bring up again maybe later on in the show because it is a financial planning issue but depends on the person's circumstances where they are in life how much cash will they have coming in so it has a fixed pension well they probably need less daily available cash because the pensions are still coming in on a monthly basis six months nice rule of thumb if you can afford to twelve months spending on hand that's great more than that well then you start having a detrimental effect to the long term growth of your overall asset base okay thank you what about that equity exposure should investors be adding to their equity exposure should they be reducing their equity exposure what's the right answer the markets reducing it for them isn't it no I mean hopefully you went into this period with below target equity exposure you've been somewhat defensive because the writing was on the wall maybe not for a pandemic but for market that wasn't cheap with before this all happened very minimal economic growth very small little earnings growth whatsoever if that's the case we can look at the opportunities to find value for long term deployment here but on that one not being a pig about trying to throw money at this and and and just you know reap the rewards of that nor more importantly do I want to sell good companies at historically depressed prices just because I'm scared of what tomorrow brings very quickly and in order to five years from now ten years from now what will we look back on back in two thousand twenty saying that we're so proud we did that we didn't panic that we help our clients stay the course and not panic and probably look back with some regret that we weren't more bold history is always said that we should.
MAX Production Halt: Why, And What's Next?
"Today we will talk about things decision to suspend production of the seven 737 Max. The vision will become effective in January in the expected to halt final assembly of the seven. Three seven for several months only two times before has seventy seven production been stopped nine thousand nine hundred seventy during the meltdown of the final assembly process in the transition from. I'm the classics to the end. And two thousand eight because of a strike that lasted fifty seven days now. I'm still a little puzzled. The Max has been grounded. Since March and Boeing has continued to build forty two aircraft ever since in spite of the delays. It seems that it may only be another few weeks until the grounding lifted. Couldn't they have just decided to continue longer rather than making this expensive offensive and Disruptive Decision Sean they certainly could have I think that their decision to to to to suspend production reflects the still high level of uncertainty. That we have with the status of the Max I the airplane lane has been seemingly a few weeks from getting at least FAA approval for an awfully long time a a obviously when when the grounding when the global grounding was put in place in March they quickly announced it was within what a couple of weeks wasn't Michael that they were GonNa go down from from on the seven three program from fifty to forty two that was effective in April. Yes and then from there. They've done nothing as to why they did it now. I think that they were that. The situation with having to store airplanes and then importantly managed to return industry the delivery of those airplanes in addition to the return to service of three hundred and eighty seven. That were grounded. which Boeing is going to help some of that? I think they would get into a situation where her. That's going to be a mini program in and of itself and I think they hung on for as long as they could and they don't know when the airplanes going to be back in service and not just the they may be a month away or two months away from getting FAA maybe Transport Canada and maybe Brazilian gene approval. Let's say but I think that you have to add time for JASA. You have to add time for maybe a lot of time for China. Yeah and Boeing just doesn't have clarity when all of their customers are going to be ready to take airplanes again so so the production halt is one way to at least you know no stop the queue from building to Q. That's GONNA would've continued to build even after the initial return-to-service approvals. I just WANNA add on a couple of things in the background of what Shawn said. We know from Boeing's announcement that they cited the growing inventory of part seven three sevens but that like anything else is just one probably one element of the bigger picture on why they decided now to finally finally do this. We don't know the other reasons for sure but lots of analysts are speculating out loud. That they're cashflow. Reasons for for instance Money coming in from advanced payments is drying up As time goes on and we know that simply because there there have been almost no orders for this airplane since the ground and the cutback in production and that advanced cashflow does. Help the bottom line at Boeing. It it at least supports ability to carry out business operations. And if you suddenly don't have that cash flow but you want to continue doing business like normal even at a forty two production rate. You've got to do things like cutback spending and other parts of the company and you may also want to take out more debt and these are things that have been happening A. and Boeing and so internally you imagine that the CFO. Greg Smith kind of target and his mind all along has to win the easy Tools the levers to pull financially. We're going to run out and then they'd have to make a bigger decision about halting production altogether and it looks like for whatever ever reasons they've come to that position so Michael. What just overall what? What do we know about the financial impact? You mentioned cash though this obviously see a big big costs aspect to this. What's what's known what's not known what is known already is that Boeing has announced more than eight billion dollars? It's an charges on a on a annual basis and that a good chunk of that five the six billion is related to what it was basically calling customer compensation in regards to making up for the lack of delivery in the ground uh of the MACs with its airline customers but There's other money that's getting added to the production block. Units for the seven three seven. Remember remember that Boeing accounts for this program a little differently than Most production products are accounted for four. And so there's money piling up and at this point I have not seen analysts say that they expect anything less than that. More charges urges getting announced that'll be incorporated as part of the fourth quarter earnings. That are happening right now. That announced at the end of January. I think it's January. twenty-ninth is Boeing's next quarterly announcement. But that's almost guaranteed according to Wall Street to include even more charges so who knows how much more whether it's billion early in two billion five billion at that is all speculation but we know for sure it's already eight billion and it's going to cost the more. There are other ways to account for what the cost is the debt that Boeing D- Let me back up for a moment Boeing's taking out more debt has been for various reasons one of which is to support business operations during this Max but it was also taking out debt to try to close the emperor. Acquisition It is struggling to still do that. Caught up and a different crisis of sorts that's related to the tariffs happening between us and probably Europe back on the US to to the World Trade Organization. Rulings there so Boeing has been taken out more debt than I thought it would be at this point a year ago and while that debt is pretty cheap on a historical basis it's still incurs costs. The Boeing really wasn't expecting affecting to be pain at this point so they're all kinds of other charges that are not charges but there are costs that are probably going to get wrapped up in that full year statement that we hear about at the end of January

"With the president of China this weekend. Both are locked in a multi-billion dollar trade war. Civil rights leaders say the indictment of four Saint Louis metropolitan police officers reveals a troubling mindset. Inside the department Saint Louis public radio's Rachel Lipman reports. The officers are facing federal charges for their roles in the assault of an undercover officer during a two thousand seventeen protests. The charges include excessive force obstruction of Justice and lying to a grand jury four officers have been suspended without pay the undercover detective was among hundreds of people arrested at downtown Saint Louis in September of last year. It was the third day of protests after a white for a police officer was acquitted of shooting and killing a black, man. That's Rachel Lipman reporting. This is NPR and I'm Jimmy Floyd for WNYC. Some New York City council. Members are introducing a Bill to make the government bidding process with corporations more transparent. The new law would prohibit officials from signing nondisclosure agreements with companies as happened in the Amazon deal councilmember Brad Lander says he feels that level of secrecy should not happen again. If the law had been in place, the city would have had to say we can't sign a non disco. Agreement. So there's two choices. We can make a bid, but it has to be public and people would be able to see it. The Bill is cosponsored by council members Monty Williams and Jimmy van Bremer atop regional Federal Housing administrator is calling for the arrest of three Niger officials after a report found they regularly lied about elevator.

Daily news reporter, Greg Smith says Patten has little authority to pursue the case herself. She has almost nothing to do with this. I guess it's well intention that she does ask a question that is important. And that is did anybody higher up the ladder condone this behavior that isn't really important question. That's the most important question. Smith says the case will be handled by.

There Trump's visit comes on the heels of a big development and special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation a guilty plea by his former attorney Michael Cohen, and what it revealed about Trump's efforts to land a business deal with Russia during the two thousand sixteen campaign NPR White House correspondent tamra Keith is traveling with the president and joins us now from when his IRAs their town. Hey, ATI sometimes when a president goes overseas. The White House is trying to leave all the domestic troubles behind is that the case this time, the answer would seem to be no. And and the reason I say that is that President Trump was supposed to have a meeting here with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he abruptly cancelled that on the way to Argentina via tweet saying it was because of Russian aggression against Ukraine, but then this afternoon there were. Reports of a possibly an informal meeting happening between Trump and Putin. Those reports were being pushed from Russia and the White House put out a sort of an odd statement referring to the Mueller investigation. Sarah Sanders sent this along she said the Russian witch-hunt hoax, which is hopefully now nearing an end is doing very well. Unfortunately, it probably does undermine our relationship with Russia, which was not entirely the answer to the question that we were asking another way that we know that the president's thinking about it is that he's been tweeting about it from here in Argentina a little while ago. Reporter's got to ask the president questions, and and one of the questions was about why he cancelled his meeting with Putin. He insisted it was because of Ukraine, hopefully, they'll be able to settle it out. Flowers amazing with president. The basis of what took place. With respect to the ships, sailors that was the. In the meantime, what else has been going on at the g twenty one big thing that happened today was before the g twenty started a signing ceremony at the president's hotel with the leaders of Canada and Mexico signing the US MCA that is the trade deal that will replace NAFTA. One interesting note is that during remarks, President Trump and president Pineyro of Mexico. It was his last day on the job both referred to it as the US MCA, which is the preferred title that President Trump likes, but prime minister Trudeau kept calling it new NAFTA, even though President Trump does not like the term NAFTA at all. But you know, this is a notable moment because this is a step in the process of President Trump, keeping a campaign promise that said congress and legislatures in Mexico and Canada still need to sign off on this on another subject. The Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman is there. He's of course, been under scrutiny since the killing of journalist Jamal kashogi has he actually interacted with President Trump yet. So a White House official says that they just exchanged pleasantries that there was no discussion. This comes in pretty big contrast with a video that's been circulating of Russian President Putin, and m Bs exchanging sort of an intricate high five that looked very celebratory the president is under some scrutiny about this because he has questioned the CIA assessment that NBS ordered the killing of Jamal kashogi. That's NPR's tamra Keith tamra. Thank you. You're welcome. And we're going to start right there with the g twenty talks in Argentina for our regular week in politics chat. We also need to take stock of another wild week in the Russia investigation. David Brooks of the New York Times is here in the studio as he often has on Friday, David with you and Susan Glasser. The New Yorker, welcome to you. Thanks so much. So President Trump signed this new NAFTA deal today, except as we just heard we're not supposed to call it NAFTA anymore. That's controversial. We are referring to the United States Mexico Canada agreement the US MCA, Scott, I'm tempted to call it also maybe prospects for a trade deal or some sort of agreement with China that may be coming together down at the g twenty Susan. Let me start with you does this count as progress in a year where we have spent a lot more time talking about trade wars than trade deals. Well, look, I think President Trump made a decision to sort of pull back from the brink and to declare victory with the reincarnated NAFTA. Whatever you wanna call it, most experts, and I'm not one on this subject. Do believe that it essentially is a reincarnated NAFTA that it builds on the foundation substantially of the original went and by the way, it's not attend deal. I should point out that there's going to be a real political fight. I think. Up here in Washington on Capitol Hill over approving this. So it's not over. Although President Trump was was taking it as a victory lap. Today was also strengthened by government coming in Mexico, which will inherit the steel by a president on his last day there. That's right. And and I thought you saw the lasting hard feelings as a result of these very tough negotiations with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who did appear at the last minute was uncertain at the signing ceremony today in Buenos Aires. But had some strong words for President Trump, and you've had this amazing spectacle. What have we taken to get here of the United States going after candidate one of its closest allies, David your takeaway, so far from the g twenty well, so far the image of Muhammad bin Salman and Putin doing an end zone dance together is the big takeaway video circulating of them doing a hi fi. Looking very cheer an image. It's a symbol. It's a symbol of an era in which the wolves of the global international order are on the March and undeterred because there's no one. Deter them. And so that's one thing. The second thing I think is the China US relationship and this thank heaven is not a Trump related story to me the big change in US China relations is that we used to have people who were friends of China somewhere, foes of China and the foreign policy establishment sort of split. That's no longer the case. Now, everyone sees China as a challenge, but as a foe Hank pulse in the former treasury fare gave a speech in Singapore recently in which he laid that very clearly and he was very much in the camp. So when Trump talks tough on China trade, he now has a lot of people who are not normally his friends actually thinking he's doing the right thing me loop.

And so his voice, he's a little under the weather. So I'm taking over today. Hopefully, this is close to the standard that he has already sept-. But today on the show, ladies and gentlemen, I have Greg Smith, Greg. How you doing man I'm doing great, thanks miles. So great I want to start with kind of a different question than you're probably used to getting in that most podcast start off with. So I'm gonna come right out the gate, Greg. What is? Is your morning routine? Co you know? So funny because this has been something I've I've really been dialing in. So funny gossips because this has been something for me personally growing up like as a kid. I kid you not I funny story to sleep in my parents room because they had TV and no other house. You know, no the room in the house did, but I'd step to one or two in the morning, and like as a five year old day of have always been this night house. So for me as an entrepreneur with past eleven twelve years, I've gotten all of my work done primarily from ten o'clock on because that's when my wife goes to bed, and then it's just like my time. And as of recently have three kids six three and eighteen months. So I've had to like start becoming a morning person. And the biggest thing for me in the morning number one is is I have my phone set towards on do not disturb mode. I only have like three people well four. So, you know, my parents my wife, and then a few key business partners in. A couple of ventures that I have they can get through to me at all times. But I keep that on do not disturb Glenn till ten AM. And then I also now with the the iphone has screened screen limiting like scrap limiting, and I turn all my apps off except for the ones that I read until nine AM. And that's after I get my my done in the morning. I typically read something like I have a rule where have a non digital morning. I used to just get up check my emails right away and just like get into the day. And then what I found out.
