How To Take Your Digital Course From Perfection To Profit
Watch This Week’s Episode of ACC-TV
Perfectionism is killing your course.
It can be easy to get stuck in the mentality that your course “isn’t ready yet”. I’ve been there and I know what it’s like to be stuck in the perfecting, perfecting, and perfecting loop. To the point that you never launch, never put it out into the world, or make money from all your hard work. Learn the 3 tricks to move your online course right past being stuck in perfectionism to generating a profit in this week’s episode of ACC-TV.
First, you have to come to grips with this —>>> there is NO such thing as perfection.
1 – Perfection is a manifestation of fear.
In fact, staying stuck in perfection syndrome is actually just you staying safe and letting fear win. I don’t know you, or your business – but I know from experience when we don’t take the leap to the next level it’s because we are afraid. Afraid of being seen, of failure, or even of success. But – here’s the cold hard truth – people need you so if you stay stuck in fear, they will never get the help they need to get from YOU! So let’s break through the fear barrier and give em what they need – capiche? Tune in here to gets some more specifics on how to combat fear and get your course moving forward.
2- Make your calendar your bestie.
It has been scientifically proven that a task will take the amount of time it is allotted. What the heck? That means if you don’t have a deadline – you are more likely to never reach completion on your project, task, goal or, in this case launching your course. I just went through a launch and I will tell you right now – it wasn’t perfect. But I walked away knowing I did it and now I can improve on future launches. Instead of staying stuck – I basically said screw it I’m launching NO MATTER WHAT. I put the date on the calendar and kept my word to myself and launched on the date. The key is I kept my word – and did my best which meant I made progress and let go of perfection. More on that here.
3 – Sell it before you create it.
Wait a minute, did she just say sell it before you make it. Yep! I did indeed. Because it helps you avoid creating courses and leaving them on the back burner with SO many excuses of why you’re not ready to sell, or that nobody will buy, or whatever your crazy brain is telling you. When you pre-sell your course – you then have the power to 1 – make money before you do the work and 2 – create something people actually want. It forces you to put your stuff out there and your people to put some skin in the game.
