If you’ve purchased 3 or more online courses and didn’t ACTUALLY finish them, it’s not your fault…
The statistics vary, but I’ve heard that, on average, online courses have a completion rate of somewhere between 5% – 10%…if I was included in that study, my own “history” with online courses would definitely drive that down closer to the 5% number…
See, the “problem” with online courses is not that the information isn’t great or that the interface isn’t sexy or that the community isn’t supportive (although I’m sure that IS the case for some, but we are talking about the courses that ACTUALLY provide value)…
And the problem isn’t even what most people THINK it is…the BIG “A” word…the “Scarlet Letter” of personal growth: A C C O U N T A B I L I T Y!
Nope, that ain’t it either…
It’s much simpler, in my opinion and experience, and it’s this…
Almost ALL online courses focus on you FINISHING the course!
“Uhhh…right…of course they do Einstein, why WOULDN’T that be their goal?! You just said yourself that less than 10% finish so OF COURSE they would focus on getting us to finish!”
Not so quick there, sarcastic non-believer who is using “Einstein’s” name in vain!
What I mean is that these courses have you believe that you WIN by CONSUMPTION!
That you GRADUATE from the program when you CONSUME all the information – when you GET THROUGH all the modules – when you MARK the videos COMPLETE!
And while that’s great, the dopamine hit of CONSUMPTION lasts FAR shorter than we’d like it to and FAR less than it needs to, to keep us moving forward – hence the low completion rate…
So what is the alternative?
I believe that anything educational and transformational should aim to do BOTH – not JUST educate, but FACILITATE REAL TRANSFORMATION AND RESULTS!
We see this time and time again in our Business Accelerator for Coaches (The Business UNusual System – B.U.S. for short). There is probably 15-20 hours or video content in the program (not including the weekly group coaching call recordings) and we tell people RIGHT FROM THE START, that you don’t WIN the B.U.S. by CONSUMPTION, you win by EXECUTION and APPLICATION!
DOING the work is what motivates you to DO more of the work!
While consuming CAN lead to more consuming…action almost ALWAYS leads to more action! #ActionCreatesTraction
It’s why we focus so much on people ACTIONing what we teach them in our programs!But THEN we had an interesting, but honestly not very surprising, realization…
When we actually bring people together in a ROOM, where they can SHARE OXYGEN, get DIRECT Guidance from me and my team and fully IMMERSE themselves in creating that traction for a few days, the results of that CARRY ON BIG TIME when they go “back” to their everyday lives!
We did it twice last year with our Proximity to Greatness Weekends (PTG) where two groups of 4 people each came out and worked DIRECTLY and IN THE TRENCHES on their biz with my team!
What shifted in both their INNER belief system and their OUTER creations was INCREDIBLE to watch (and I would GLADLY have you talk to any of the 8 people who took part and have them tell you themselves)…
And BECAUSE we saw what a difference that makes AND because we are so committed to serving as deeply as we can AND because we LOVE the intimacy of a TRUE collaboration on creating the ACTUAL plan, strategy, and assets to help people grow their coaching businesses while having FUN in the process – WE ARE READY TO DO IT AGAIN!!!!
We are super excited to announce that me and Team JG are hosting a 4-day IMMERSION experience in Sol Troia, Portugal from June 11 – 14 where we will be working with a MAXIMUM of 6 people to tell them EXACTLY what we do and how we do it and have you WIN by EXECUTION because you will leave with REAL assets and growth in your business!
Over the course of our 4 days together you will know at a deep level and with REAL certainty:
WHO you are meant to serve!
HOW you are meant to serve them!
A CLEAR picture of your ideal peeps and exactly what problems you solve and outcomes you co-create
Your UNIQUE offer (whether as a 1:1 coaching package or a group coaching program) and how to make it irresistible to YOUR peeps!
A compelling and valuable PILLAR piece of content that gives people REAL insight into who you are, what you stand for and why you are the ONLY real choice for people to work with
A full content strategy to LAUNCH your offer in a way that feels FUN, ALIGNED, SOUL-FULL, PLAY-FULL, HEART-CENTERED, and SERVICE-BASED – so you know exactly what content to create and how to do so in a way that gets people EXCITED to work with you
Coaching before and after the 4 days with me and my team!
RIDICULOUSLY gorgeous, private accommodations in a beach-side Portugal Villa with all meals included (just fly over, bring some clothes and a toothbrush and you are ready to rock!)
And more than anything, a REAL feeling of self-certainty and confidence that YOU CAN DO THIS and in YOUR way!
This won’t be yet “another course” you didn’t finish that makes you doubt your abilities because you will be IMMERSED, SUPPORTED, and EXCITED to DO THE WORK with me and the squad – all of us LITERALLY sitting down next to you and helping you map out YOUR biz!
1 spot got grabbed up before I could even make this post, so there are 5 left (and another may be gone before the end of the week)!
We are on a mission to DEMYSTIFY and DE-SERIOUS-IZE this whole MAKING A DIFFERENCE while MAKING MONEY thing and we are looking for 5 more coaches who are as sincere as we are to bring that to fruition!
