How to Identify Your Profitable Course Idea

Online courses are the best way to make leveraged scalable income.  

The first step is identifying your profitable course idea.  In order to help you do this, write down at least 3-4 ideas for each of the below sections.  Remember, don't list anything you don't care about.   

  • Things I'm interested in
  • Things I'm passionate about
  • Things I've done & have authority in

Your online course should provide a transformation for the student.  Pick 1-2 topics that have the strongest transformation from above and then circle the one you would love to teach.
