Today I have another student success story I want to celebrate with you! Claire Woodhouse is an incredible wife, mother, blogger, and now course creator! She is the founder of the Secretly Healthy Home blog, sharing delicious dessert recipes to help other women enjoy their sweet tooth without any guilt. Claire recently launched her Smart Sweet Tooth System through participating in my Paid to Create Challenge and enrolled 12 founding (aka “beta”) students in just 3 days, BEFORE she even created a single lesson! The cash injection from her beta launch allowed her to pay for her video + membership platform hosting costs so she could launch this product with zero dollars spent out of pocket for her expenses.

If you want access to the step-by-step Paid to Create method Claire followed to create your own online course in just 3 days, come join me for our next LIVE 3 day challenge that starts in May! RSVP before time runs out at

Stay tuned to hear about how Claire was able to bootstrap the launch of her first digital product and her #1 advice for all new entrepreneurs. If you’re a listener with big dreams of becoming an entrepreneur or growing your business with online courses, this one's for you!
