TIP OF THE WEEK

Phil: If you want to create an online course, focus on how much the student gets out of your course and not how much you get from the student in terms of money.
Focus on creating a course that students love. Stop worrying about how much you’re going to make from each student if you care about actually creating a great course that helps them learn. You’re going to be paid back because of the good reviews and that creates more sales.
