So, it's day 3 of the challenge to build and market a course in 30 days and things are going along nicely, but I am starting to get a little nervous I have bitten off more than I can chew! But only a little.
I have to remember lots of groundwork to be done - its like when you're building a house and it feels like nothing is happening and it really is...
I’ve decided to add these daily updates to the blog, in case it’s helpful for someone else who is doing a sprint course creation mission! If you’re reading this and not aware of the what the Epic 30 Day Course Building Challenge is all about, check this post here first.
If you want to get daily updates sent to you via email not only will that fill your inbox with awesomeness from me, I’d appreciate the cheer squad 📣
It is so zippy compared to the temporary one I was using, so that is a win! My main office/studio computer died out of the blue two weeks ago, then two freakin days later my laptop died (I never believed in Mercury Retrograde until now!!!!)
I spent quite a bit of time doing research on the course outline/topics, to try make sure I'm covering off everything that needs to be there and feeling happy with it.
101 tips to get your business off the ground is the premise and I've got 120, so will need to cull/consolidate which is a good thing. Gotta get the name sorted asap.
Got my project plan in Asana pretty much ready to rock as well.
Also invested quite a bit time into doing around half of the 10X launches course from Copy School today, holy crap it is SO good! I love Ry Schwartz's teaching!
So glad I joined Copy School, it felt like a bit of an impulsive thing to do - as it is an expensive course (espeically in AUD) but my copywriting skills and conversion knowledge has already expanded 10 fold in a few weeks. I think having this knowledge and skillset is going to be a HUGE help in making the launch side of things successful I think.
The email and sales page courses are equally as epic! Sometimes I feel like my brain is going to explode with all this new information. I have a pretty damn fantasic sales page outline done already too.
Marie Forleo look out! Sue McLachlan is coming to get you 💥
Tomorrow I need to get my main lead magnet up (oh yeah and decide what that will be!) and a create a better landing page, so I can start growing my list!. My numbers did grow slightly today, but without a list, it is going to make it very hard to sell the course, which at the end of the day is the whole point. I need to get those numbers going up pretty much immediately. I think a lot of my time this month is going to be dedicated to list growth.

I've managed to clock in 16 hours work today, so I really need to figure out how to look after myself as well, so I don't burn out over the 30 days! I have rowing first thing in the morning, which is kinda like active meditation. It is always so peaceful on the water at that hour, so that will help!
I’ll check in again tomorrow, with some detailed updates! Comment below if you’ve got any questions, or just want to cheer me on 🎊
Til then, Sue x
Just a heads up
