Do you keep putting off growing your email list?

Don't worry. First 500 will solve each of those problems and more.

In this video training, you will learn the 5 steps I took to get my first 500 subscribers. I'll walk you through each step via video. Plus, you'll get an assignment at the end of each step so that you can apply what you've learned. You'll also get a companion workbook and bonus materials.

I help entrepreneurs create online courses with less overwhelm.

My passion is helping people get better learning results from their online courses. Unlike other online course experts, my background is in Instructional Design, which means I study how adults learn and make courses based on those principles. In 2009, I graduated with a Masters Degree in Instructional Technology from Georgia State University. For the past 8 years, I've worked as a Learning Designer, helping business owners create hundreds of online courses. Zen Courses launched in 2015 as a way to help solo entrepreneurs like you beat online course overwhelm. This product is part of that mission.
