If you’re new to business and are struggling with what you should offer, who your ideal clients are, and how to do the marketing of your future products and services, I recommend the CORE Program ($240). I recommend this course to all my clients. It also comes with the Authentic Copywriting Course ($120) as a bonus.

Even if your business is established, but you wish that your products/services sold better, the CORE Program offers important ideas and exercises. I myself follow the CORE process whenever I launch my own programs.

Once you’ve gotten some clarity and excitement about your offer, you need to clarify your business model, how to price your offers effectively, and your ongoing actions to grow your business. Study Authentic Business Planning ($75) which offers step-by-step templates. I require all my clients to take this one.

If you're interested in being effective on social media (without resenting it!) then consider taking my Social Media Mindset Webinar ($30).

What if you’re in a hurry to get new clients now? Take the Authentic Client Enrollment ($120) course to get trained and inspired to use proven strategies for attracting new clients. By implementing the ideas, you should be well on your way to filling your client roster.  

If you’ve already found the course you want to take, you don’t have to keep reading. Bookmark and return to this article after you finish the course, should you need additional skills.

Among the most important skill sets for a self-employed professional is how to manage time effectively and take wise action, consistently and joyfully. If you’d like to reboot how you plan your time, how to overcome procrastination daily, and learn my recommended habits to make your work productive and joyful, check out Mindful Time Management ($75). 

Related to managing time is how you are working with information and digital clutter. I use Google Drive and Photos to handle all my documents and media. In the Digital Decluttering Course I show you how to do all that, step by step. I also teach you my favorite techniques for effectively using Google Chrome, Google Drive, Google Docs, Spreadsheets, and Google Keep.
Having a great relationship to money (spending, making, saving, investing) is also essential for a thriving self-employment. To get my training for your money mindset and habits, take Conscious Money Flow ($120).

Next up are four courses that will help you to create great content consistently:

  • Authentic Content Flow ($120) will give you the templates to brainstorm, plan, create, and distribute all aspects of your message. The course will inspire and teach you the habits of creating and publishing content consistently, so that you can show up to your ideal audience through your blog, social media, and email newsletter. Creating content is essential for helping you explore and discover depth and breadth of your message. 

  • Authentic Video Creation ($120) will train and inspire you to finally make videos, and to do that in a simple and authentic way. You don’t need to learn video editing or get fancy equipment. What your ideal audience needs is your authentic presence. To see and hear you will make a real difference for potential clients in deciding whether to work with you.

  • Creating Simple Courses ($120) helps you to take your message and convert it into products that will earn you passive income. You'll learn how to choose your own course topics, and understand the logistics for creating and launching an online course. It also offers a directory of fellow course creators to work with! 

  • Simple Book Self-Publishing ($60) offers you a complete step-by-step guide for putting together your books and launching them. The course was created after I wrote and self-published two books successfully and carefully documented my journey. Cut the learning curve by getting my checklists and guidance.

What if you have a lot of ideas and feel disorganized? Check out the Framework Course ($120) to give yourself an organized structure in which to contain all your ideas.

Let’s say you’ve published content online but wish it could reach a lot more people. Here are the courses to solve that problem for you:

  • Facebook Ads ($100) is my most popular course. No surprise because FB Ads is the easiest way to get your content (and offers) distributed to as many people as you’d like. You can target your message to people in specific locations, age range, gender, job titles, and interests.

  • Instagram Marketing ($75) shows you how I use Instagram to share my message (words and video) on a platform that is traditionally photo-based. Yes, you can easily share wisdom via Instagram. You just need to know how.

  • LinkedIn Authentic Strategies for the Self-Employed ($100) is my recommended way to use LinkedIn to grow the reach of your content, and to curate a network of connections that you really care about.

  • Simple JV’s and Authentic Collaborations ($75) is the other major strategy I recommend to my clients for getting their content and offers to the right audiences. There are many people out there who have already built engaged audiences, so why not tap into their work, instead of re-inventing the wheel or working in isolation? This course teaches you how to find the right collaborators, how to reach out to them (what to say) and the various types of collaborations, including JV’s (joint ventures).

  • Netcaring: How to Wisely Keep in Touch + Find New Kindred Spirits ($60) is ideal if you're not yet ready to do JV's or collaborations.

  • Authentic SEO ($120) teaches you my unique step-by-step way to effectively research keywords that are being searched by your ideal audience, and then how to update your content and website to integrate those keywords, as well as a few other major methods for "getting to the first page of Google".

Finally, there’s The Path of Mastery course ($60) which gives you a strategy for continually improving all aspects of your business. Step by step, month by month, you can become more skillful in your client services, in creating content, and in enrolling new clients. The course helps you to consciously attend to the process of mastery in your most important activities.
