by | Nov 29, 2022 | Grow Your Private Practice, Podcast

In this episode of The Private Practice Elevation Podcast, you’re going to learn 4 simple steps that will help you validate that course topic idea you’ve got swimming around in your head.

With the power of simple online platforms like Teachable and Kajabi, it’s no wonder why so many entrepreneurs and private practice owners are shifting their energy toward creating courses.

It’s a great way to reach more people with your expertise and generate income for something that you’re passionate about.

But one of the biggest challenges to creating a course is nailing down a topic that you’re confident will actually sell.

Because no one wants to pour time, money, sweat, and tears into building an online course just to have it fall flat and have no one buy it.

Validating your course topic is the best way to ensure you’re on the right track toward a course that sells.

James Marland from Course Creation Studio joins me to share 4 steps you can take to validate your profitable course idea.

James is on a mission to support therapists in creating life-changing and profitable online courses. And he believes each therapist has at least one course within them. 

In This Episode, You’ll Learn:

  • How you can validate your course idea in 4 steps
  • The 4 things you need to do before you begin creating your course
  • How to deal with imposter syndrome if other people have created similar courses
  • Why it’s ok if someone else has already created a similar course to yours
  • Real-life examples and lessons I (Daniel) have learned from launching courses
