How This Course Works

Let’s talk about how this course works!

Set up in an 8 week program for you to get up and running with solid systems in place. Each lesson will include relevant homework assignments and supporting downloadable documents. Wherever possible I give you content that I actually use in my own business.

What’s not included:

  • Things you have to do or create: ie website, logo, explainer video etc.
  • My automation systems. In the course I tell you what you need to do for automations but if you want to use my system specifically it requires you to use the same softwares i do so for the sake of freedom of choice, I've left that automations course out and can be purchased separately
  • Also, for my California folks, I have a How I Stays Compliant as a DRA course that is also sold separately
