I love @chrisg idea about getting fashion bloggers to go through it. Brilliant! Great way to get partnerships.
Super grateful for the GROUP BRAIN that is starting to grow in this community. We are smarter, better and more awesome together!!!!May 28, 2018 at 8:26 am #76085
Well everyone. I have had 2 months of doing very little on this course, but working my but off in the master’s and another course that it turns out I needed to go through to get my brain in line with where this one is going. I took a money course on freeing up my beliefs with money because turns out I didn’t believe I was worthy to make money, or if I did it had to be less than my spouse, plus a whole host of other things that explain the sudden stand still once I started reaching the phases of MOVEMENT in this course when it wasn’t just theoretical anymore.
So here’s to the long journey and making a product worth selling. Glad to be back on the mountain, with some renewed faith and hope that one day this thing really will get done, even if I don’t know yet what that day is.May 28, 2018 at 9:21 am #76089
Well done buddy. Proud of you.
We have half term here (school break – one week) so I’m not about but let’s get back on track asap.May 28, 2018 at 1:55 pm #76133
So proud of you @fiona. I’ve had to tackle those money beliefs too many times on the journey. You’ve got this and you are more than worthy and deserving. Your work matters and you deserve to be paid for the goodness you bring to the world. If A-Holes can get paid for destroying the planet, you sure as shit can get paid for making it better!July 12, 2018 at 6:54 pm #78092
Ok adventure buddies. I’ve got my green screen lighting and camera. I’ll be setting up studio next week and working on the first activity in green screen magic. Sometimes it is hard to keep plugging away with no paycheck coming until I get er done, but hoping to make a difference and build a course worth selling, a message worth sharing to help lives worth changing. All the best to continued path of the tortoise. Slow and steady will win this race, and sadly (or not sadly, I don’t know) it is just going to have to be the tortoise pace.July 13, 2018 at 8:37 pm #78150
You’re doing it @fiona. Just a little step in front of the next little step. Your stick-to-it-ness will pay off in wonderful ways. Just keep growing, learning and applying what you learn to what you teach and all will work out awesome!September 13, 2018 at 10:16 am #81485
Just past my one year anniversary of starting on the mountain. I have accomplished way less than I wanted, but must acknowledge where I am at. I am in Camp Medias and slowly doing green screen magic. I keep saying this, but I really have to dump my expectations. No expectations on when things should be done means moving forward without emotional setbacks when “deadlines” come and go, and still moving very slowly.
But, that said, I’m going to be doing take one of act one today for green screen magic.September 13, 2018 at 10:40 am #81490
@Fiona – I’m glad to see you here. It is a tortoise pace, isn’t it? For many of us, this path up the mountain is not only building a course but also building our self-worth and confidence. I keep trying to focus on only the very next step – and I’ve been stuck on that one for more than a week. I know your life is full already. Kudos on all your progress this far.September 14, 2018 at 4:02 am #81529

This is so true…I’ve experienced this so much in my short time here on GEA, but it’s good to eventually realize that building courses is a long game, and taking one small step every day will always help!
Also, sometimes a break is good to clear your head – if you’re too into the thing you’re doing you can become blindsided by results and not enjoying the process! 🙂September 14, 2018 at 4:31 am #81531
I think that making an eCourse is one of the most difficult things I know because of they’re so many things to do one the way up to the top of the mountain. And we all also have a normal life and jobs that also take a lot of time.
Our dreams about our course have no limits, in the fantasy are all thing possible, but in the real world, we don’t have all that time to do all the things that our fantasy show us. So we shall also find a way to the top of the mountains where there is a balance between our fancy and the time we have to do it.
We shall also not run too fast, because we so can burn out. Sometimes I have run to fast and must rest much more after that, but when I run in the right tempo, I can run a long time and get a much better result.
But it is not an easy thing to put all that different things together.
So take your time and follow your heart intsed of your mind @fiona, and you will get the best result 🙂September 14, 2018 at 8:04 am #81538
The beautiful thing about where you’re at @fiona, is that you’re still HERE!!! Even after all the obstacles that have been put in your path, you are still here and your desire to create is still strong! That says a lot to me.
And the other beautiful thing is, you’re on a 5+ year trajectory with this business. You’re only 20% of the way through until you can really have a high expectation to be running a fully self sufficient, sustainable business. So patience and celebrate the learning.
What are the top 5 lessons you’ve learned from year one on the mountain?September 14, 2018 at 12:40 pm #81585
Act one complete. Now I am going to go spend time with my children.September 14, 2018 at 1:19 pm #81593
@bradleytmorris the 5 lessons
September 14, 2018 at 1:25 pm #81597
- Check my discouragement, and keep perspective that I have a very full life right now with my school and family even though things aren’t happening as fast as I wanted
- Check my expectations realizing that it took you and andy and several others well over a year to make great things in online learning
- Keep moving forward and pick myself up when this got the back burner for several weeks at a time
- Celebrate every little success! Because a 52 second video took me 8 hours to make, and I didn’t even do 20 seconds of it! Quite pleased with the result!
- Remember that I have incredible tenacity and that even though it may take me forever, I do it, and do it until the job is done.
- One day I will celebrate launch summit with all of you. Even if I don’t get bajillions for it 🙂
Great job with your first Green Screen Video! 🙂 You did a fantastic job! Great job!
Celebrate every little success! Because a 52 second video took me 8 hours to make, and I didn’t even do 20 seconds of it! Quite pleased with the result!
Something I’ve really had to learn with this process – and something that’s gonna be really powerful for you as you move forward, is the fact that each time you edit your videos you’ll get quicker and quicker, it’ll become easier and easier until you’re suddenly able to produce and edit a video in a day! 🙂
One day I will celebrate launch summit with all of you. Even if I don’t get bajillions for it
And I think I speak for everyone who’s here to say – we can’t wait for it! 🙂 (and who knows what could be available to us in the end ^_^)September 14, 2018 at 4:30 pm #81604

Howdy @fiona! Such a pleasure to have you back on the mountain! I just finished readin through all the pages of this thread and if I didn’t see the dates between posts I’d never know you’d been away. You seem to have a great knack for just pickin up right where ya left off, and that puts you ahead of so many who never can seem to get back to a project they’re excited about. Just witnessing this quality in you makes me KNOW you got this! Might take a while but so does anythin worth doin. Keepin that balance of work-family-life etc and still pluggin away at the steps, one at a time, that you need to take is the only way this can get done. By anyone. Love your concept, love the re-framing the name into the building up rather than busting down and I love how much this empowers people. The world needs more of what you got to teach and I am so happy you’re doing what you’re doing! Now y’all haveta excuse me… gonna go change into them there pink cowgirl boots!
