Course Description

This in-depth online course is designed to help Course Creators, Edupreneurs, Education and Information-based business owners and training professionals in building a successful education-based business.

If you want to commercialise your expertise by creating education products and services in digital form, face to face, done for you and more - this online course will take you through all of the stages to:

- plan your business model

- plan your products and services offerings

- plan your packages and pricing

- how you will reach your market

and much much more

As a bonus, this course also includes the eCopy of my book 'The Edupreneur's Guide: Commercialise Your Expertise'

This course of over 118 video lectures will take every entrepreneur, whether new or established through the absolute essentials of running and growing a successful business.

I have been in business for over a decade, and in that time I have both failed painfully through making avoidable mistakes due to a simple lack of knowledge, and also seen triumphant successes through implementing the right strategies.

In this course, I have put together everything that wasn't there for me when I first started out.

I have included all of the greatest learning from my formal and informal experiences as a decade-long edupreneur and international education business owner to create 'the course I wish I'd had' when I started  - so that you can take what works for yourself without going through the hard yards like I did.

This course will suit absolute beginners to the business world best, but will also be a highly beneficial refresh, refocus and re-strategise for anyone already in business.

You can find all of the modules and lecture titles in the Course Curriculum over to the left, and if you have any questions about this program please contact Sarah directly on

This course is $497 on its own, or comes included in the Edupreneur's Academy membership for just $47 a month (cancel anytime) subscription.
