Can you be rich and still have a peaceful mindset?

creating a course

Leveraging your unique knowledge by creating a course, writing an ebook, starting a membership.

I share the story of an actor who is giving away his $714 million nest egg. He says he just wants a normal life and peace of mind? Would you still have peace of mind if you had millions to your name? If you aren’t confident you could, then you may be sabotaging your ability to increase your wealth.

Hi, this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re listening to the 48 Days Radio show – where each week we take 48 minutes to dive into real life questions about finding your passion, deciding what kind of life you want to live – and then finding or creating work that allows you to show up every day, excited to be able to do something that is meaningful, fulfilling – and profitable.  This is where normal, indecision and ambiguity come to die.  Welcome to the 48 Days Radio Show.


Do you have any suggestions on what I could do 348 days in advance of a move to another state?

Make sure your skills are relevant and up to date.

Review the job search process in 48 Days To the Work You Love.

Enjoy the process.

I’m creating a course. How long should an online course be?

We have a lady who went from being on welfare to creating a course on how to make sourdough bread. She’s made $173,000 on short, $12 courses.

I have never had anyone complain about a course being too short.

Amy Porterfield is the best source for the information on creating a course. Get her free starter kit here.

She says there are 5 different types of courses:

  • a workshop course addresses a specific immediate challenge (20-30 minutes in in length)
  • starter course that gives you a little more info and how to (2 hours in length)
  • spotlight course that dives into one area only (less than an hour)
  • signature course that covers a much wider curriculum (like our Online 48 Days To the Work You Love Seminar)
  • certification course that takes place over a series of weeks (like our Coaching Mastery Program)

Start with what it is you are trying to convey.

Don’t make it artificially long because you think people are going to be attracted to a longer course.

Choose 3-4 courses in a specific area and become an expert in that area.

One of my go-to resources in technology is Shawn Lemon. Check out what he does here.

Josh is a perfect example. He dedicated 21 hours per week to learning software development for seven months.
