What's your business, and who are your customers?

I help professionals and organizations create meaningful and profitable online courses and training programs. Online courses should be a well-crafted, empowering experience. So, your unique wisdom can make a real difference in the learners’ lives.

Tell us about yourself

In January 2019, I followed my heart and dream of an entrepreneurial lifestyle. I left everything I had in Denmark and headed to America with my new American husband and anything I could fit in one big suitcase. Starting all over in my new country has been both exciting and challenging. Building a new business from scratch.

Getting to use my 20+ years of experience in the learning industry in Denmark to help experts expand their businesses with online programs globally. I am excited to use my unique background as a learning expert, well-known speaker, educational consultant, author, and high-school principal to help my clients reach their goals. I LOVE learning!

To me, learning is the pathway to freedom!

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment as a business owner was when I became the #1 international best-selling author of The Ultimate Course Creation Guide.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

The hardest thing that comes with being a business owner is making sure to take time off for self-care!

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. It takes time. Be patient with yourself!
  2. Make sure you consistently grow your visibility on social media and share value that builds your credibility. In the long run, that will lead to profitability.
  3. Serve your customers to the best of your ability. Happy customers are great referral sources.
