I feel that I created my own niche because I heard from people that, there’s no market for this and know you’re not going to be able to do this. What I found was that wasn’t the case. Rather I started to turn heads in this online course creation industry from the experts who said, we want more value, we want better products, we want people to opt into the next part of our funnel. If feels really good, and I’m proud of having created my own course creation niche specifically to my own passion, my own drive and my purpose.
Choosing Their Profession
This process started when I had to choose a topic for my dissertation for my doctorate from the University of Central Florida. I picked the topic of professional development and started writing my dissertation, concurrently taking every course on about online marketing.
I had my focus in education initially and realized after taking many online marketing programs that they weren’t really teaching, that I wasn’t getting the kind of value out of these courses that I would expect to have. I just naturally started to use my professional expertise in education and began evaluating these courses while also taking in the content.
In August 2013, I went to my first Tony Robbins event Unleash the Power Within and realized my life needed a makeover, yet I had no idea what that should look like. In January 2014 I left the field of public education completely and really just took time to discover my passion.
I started looking at different course creation strategies using the visible learning techniques by John Hattie to evaluating learning degrees and effectiveness on the outcome. Homework has very little to do with learning yet using strategies like increasing cognitive rigor can significantly increase a student’s learning outcome. So I began creating a course creation method, a template that had the highest impact learning techniques. My focus and drive became a mission to reach a broader audience; what if every time you pick up a product you learn from it, what if every time you could apply it.
The online learning trend will continue to grow as we move beyond the traditional style of learning. The leaders in this online learning community really want better for their people and I want to help move that trend forward.
