A rather beleaguered entrepreneur, Debbie, called me the other day desperate for help getting her e-course done.
Was it the tech part that was holding her back?
Was it lack of knowledge about her topic that was holding her back?
Was it lack of experience with real clients or students that was holding her back?
It turned out she was nearly paralyzed with concern (okay, let’s call it fear) that she would make a sub-par course (okay, let’s call it crappy).
A Crappy Course.
What could be more embarrassing than to send your clients – or potential clients – to a so-so course? Or worse?
Debbie did NOT want that. So it had been over 3 months since she stopped working on her course. Paralyzed, really, with fear.
Does this sound familiar? Do you have a half-finished course waiting to be be launched (or book – or retreat – or whatever)?
What do you *do* with that?
Get to the Root
When I work with people in Debbie’s situation, the first thing I want to do it get to the root of what’s really going on.
Because, hey, there’s what you say and what you think is going on, and then there’s what’s REALLY going on.
So don’t be saying, “I just don’t have the time, waa waa waa” if what is REALLY going on is that you’re freaking out that your students are going to bail on the course, never finish it, and make you look like an idiot.
Having said that, let’s go deep a bit and see if one (or more) of these root issues resonates with you:
