This is an abandoned project. Oh, the excitement I felt at the start of knitting #BarbieDollClothes — even though:

I didn’t have any Barbie dolls and neither did my sons.💫

That’s how it is with a bright new project! ☀️

I hear from many would-be online course builders who are optimistic to start but just can’t get through the “messy middle” and to the end of creating their course.

Here are 4 reasons I hear again and again. BUT BEFORE I LIST THEM KNOW THIS:

If this happened to you, it’s often not your fault (until it is …)

So here are the reasons:

1️⃣ HIGH-JACKED CONTENT CREATION.
Your work on developing the course and making its lessons ends up high-jacked, expanding, even fueling self doubt.

2️⃣ DISTRACTED BY SHINY OBJECTS
All the course-building tools and tactics have you confused and distracted.

3️⃣ WORRY ABOUT SALES
The worry that no one will buy your course is a strong but often unspoken undercurrent keeping you stuck in idea stage.

4️⃣ DOING THE WRONG WORK
The tasks you’re working on aren’t the right ones for getting a profitable online course created and selling.

Are you stopped and in danger of abandoning a project you started with great joy? Let’s get you moving it through the messy middle and onto the end.
