$10k in 30 days aaminah amin course creator entrepreneurship finance coach online course paid to create small following Jan 10, 2022

Today I want to introduce you to Aaminah Amin, one of our Paid to Create students who had a $10K launch on her course within a couple weeks of completing the challenge, and with less than 3000 followers!

If you’re new to our world, the Paid to Create Challenge is a bootcamp style experience where we help first time course creators turn the idea in their head into a course they can pre-sell (meaning you don’t need pre recorded lessons, a website, or sales page). We help you enroll paying students into your course within just 3 days. Sounds like a big promise, but we have helped over 400 people do exactly that. Aaminah is proof that the method works, so if you’re interested in getting your course out into the world, check out www.ellenyin.com/paidtocreate to hear about our upcoming challenge kicking off January 24th. 

Aside from yielding impressive results from the Paid to Create Challenge, Aaminah is a financial coach who helps empower women of color to take control of their finances. In the last 2 and a half years, she has paid off 30,000 pounds in debt, started 3 businesses, created 7 streams of income, and is on track to retire in her 40’s - super impressive right? Through her course she has helped her students save and invest over $200,000. This is such a ripple effect that started with Aaminah believing in herself and deciding to go for it and create her first course, despite all the mental blocks she faced. Press play to hear all the details of Aaminah’s story leading up to and after launching her course with the Paid to Create method!
