What I’m Struggling with Right Now

In one of my recent updates, I talked about how pleased I was with how 2015 was going so far.

Sales for my courses have been great and I’m very proud of the positive results people have been getting from my training.

This video is a little different.

I go through three things that I’m struggling with at the moment.

I hope you find this useful for your own online teaching journey.

What I’m Struggling With at the Moment

Outsourcing

I have outsourced a few tasks this year, but I want to do more.

The problem I’m facing is that I am apprehensive about having others do things that can be interpreted in different ways.

Hiring someone to do transcribing was an easy decision – the transcript is either right or wrong

But customer service, video summary writing, and social media commenting are examples of tasks that can have many different outcomes.

The way we communicate with our learners through email, social media, sales pages, videos etc. is vital.

But I am reaching a stage where I’ll need to pass certain tasks on.

What I’m struggling with is having someone do this without my voice being lost.

New Courses

I made the decision to focus on my current courses this year instead of creating new ones.

I know that as my audience grows, more people will buy my courses.

But I also want to create new products because I know that they will be valuable and it will help me bring in more income.

What I’m struggling with is knowing how these courses are going to fit in with the ones I already have.

Looking at Stats

I’ve found myself checking stats too often during the day.

I go and check Google Analytics to see who is on my site, Facebook to see new notifications, and YouTube to check my stats.

I got out of this habit a few months ago by using StayFocusd and RescueTime.

I thought I had broken this habit. But I guess it’s time to use these tools again.

Over to You

No matter where we’re at with our online teaching, we’re always going to face obstacles.

I try to see these problems as challenges that I have to solve. And when I solve them, my business will benefit.

That’s why I’m committed to getting over the struggles that I’ve laid out in the video above.

What are you struggling with right now?
