by | Oct 19, 2021

Learning never stops. People of all races have a desire to develop, sharpen or upgrade their mental intelligence. It is for this reason that online courses and book publication has remained a multi-million-dollar industry. People are yearning for new knowledge each day. Having the right skills and mindset, you can tap into this opportunity as a business by building instructional courses. But just where can you start? Join me as I engage with Kat Dunn, “The CourseBuilder”, who has built a million-dollar business by creating online courses for over six years.

Kat Dunn founded her full-service agency in 2015 with the goal of “helping 1 million people teach 1 million”. Kat assembled a team of industry-leading course building professionals, and we’re well on our way to reaching that goal. We’ve launched almost 17,000 courses since 2015, in 5 countries, on three continents. Kat’s team has a thorough understanding of business, marketing,

and how a properly designed course can be a valuable, revenue-generating tool. Last year, we helped our clients to earn over $12.6 million in additional income through courses. She has been featured on ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC.

During this episode, we will discuss what creating online courses is all about, how you can use it to create a passive income, and the benefits of creating and marketing your courses via an agency rather than starting from scratch.

In this episode, you will learn about:

  • Kat’s backstory into Instructional design and teaching
  • Her turning point in creating instructional courses as a business
  • Tips on turning your skills into a million-dollar online course business
  • Benefits of selling online courses via an agency
