Online course creation is not just about making money.
Income is nice, but the freedom to be your best, most authentic self and help others through that is a very powerful reward and reason for making online courses.
First, I’d like to introduce you to a poem called Beautiful Rowdy Prisoners by a Sufi poet from the 14th century named Hafiz.
The small man
Builds cages for everyone
While the sage,
Who has to duck his head
When the moon is low,
Keeps dropping keys all night long
In the video below I read this poem and unpack what it means to me as an education entrepreneur.
So what does this mean for you, the online course creator, membership site owner, or learning management system administrator?
There’s never been a better time to acknowledge your unique value (or value in others) and share that through online training and community.
You can connect your unique value with anyone in the world through the internet.
When you help someone, you are metaphorically in the theme of Hafiz’s poem, unlocking cages and releasing prisoners.
You are creating real value in the world, and it’s sustainable, because you are embodying your best most authentic self in the process.
If this message is resonating with you, and you don’t want to have to do the technical setup of your online course delivery platform, I would encourage you to check out this video and fill out the form below it on that page.
I hope you find this message inspiring, and it helps you drop more keys and live a more fulfilled, authentic life through stepping into online education as you truly are.
