What is the course about
My course is about becoming a wellness coach. It teaches things from basic nutrition, how to change eating habits, and how to get the business started.
How did you choose the topic of the course
I started my own wellness journey about 12 years ago. It's been a huge struggle finding good information on my own. Eventually I became a Zumba instructor and Beachbody coach. Between the two, I gained a lot of insight of what kind of help people need to change their lives, especially when they feel alone in the journey. I want others to find the courage to change their life like I have.
Why did you decide to create an online course
Several people would ask me about nutrition, eating better, how to help with this or that disease, and how to start their own online business. So, it made sense to create a course that covered what has been most asked.
How did you find time to produce it
I would work on it during weekends, and as I took additional courses for my own development I would think certain things needed to be put in the course.
How long did it take you to put together
About a year, maybe a little longer.
What was the hardest thing to do
The hardest thing to do was to figure out how to create a website. I knew if I created a course I didn't want it to be under someones terms. I want it to be under me, and not someone else.
What was the simplest thing to do
The simplest thing to do was create the PowerPoint. I have to create them to train people at my day job, so it was really easy for me to throw the material together once I got started.
How did you determine the price of the course
The price was determined off of what I have seen others charging for similar contents. I haven't seen one course that covers both nutrition information and getting their own business started, but I took what I could find of the two and priced it at the lower end.
What is your marketing strategy to promote it
At the moment I'm talking about it every day on my social media. I have friends that are also sharing trying to get the word out.
What software did you use
I used PowerPoint and screencast-o-matic to create the course. My website is on wordpress.
What hardware did you use
I used my Toshiba laptop with its built in camera and microphone and just a table lamp.
What was the part the Grumo course help you the most with
Taking Grumo's course, How to create an Awesome Online Course gave me much needed knowledge about how to get from a PowerPoint presentation in a classroom to putting the course online. I got some valuable marketing tips that I need to figure out how to implement. The course gave me the mental boost I needed to actually make the thought a reality.
What other resources have you used to make your course
I used many resources to gather material and to figure out how to make this course. I paid for a few different classes, such as Zumba Plate by Zumba Fittness and Become a Money Making Life Coach by Amanda Frances that both contributed to this course. There were many little webinars and articles I got notes from also, but didn't keep track of where I got what information as there were so many over the past decade. I started my own personal life changing health journey about 12 years ago. It slowly evolved from just changing my life to helping others change theirs.
