Do you crave more time & money?

Do you crave more time? Perhaps more income so you can travel or do more of the fun stuff you love?

One way to leverage our time and money in our lives is to create / sell / teach something online. You could also go out on your own as a consultant or coach.

Is there something that you know or use and want to share with more people?

Imagine if there was someone who could help you to get your expertise out of your head, online and generating an income for you. Well, there is! I’m delighted to introduce you to Maria Doyle. She is a curriculum development and teacher training expert. She’s also wise and fun!

Maria can pull information out of people’s heads at a rate of knots. She makes learning environments fun, engaging, inspiring, and safe. And, she is a joy to work with - Maria helped me to optimise my 7‑Step Career Change online program and the user experience. Such a relief to know that participants will get a lot out of it and to not worry like I was!

About a year ago I was a tad frustrated. I was meeting return to work parents and students who wanted to work with me but couldn’t afford a 1‑to‑1 coaching program. So, I took a deep breath and decided to create the online program version of my 7 Step Career Change Program. I wanted to create an alternative at a lower price point to meet the needs of return to work parents and students.

I wanted to solve a real problem out there.

Now, I was nervous as I knew I would be working more in my areas of weakness rather than my areas of strengths. So I looked for who was going to join my team on this project. The divine Kate Riordan (process specialist - listen to her podcast interview) helped me to get ideas out of my head and develop the broad structure of the program. This helped me to say “Yes!” fully to the project.

But then I felt stuck and started to procrastinate. How do you translate a coaching model to a teaching model? Thankfully I found Maria and I learnt how to take a broad structure of a program and fill it in and deliver it in an optimised and engaging way.

There is an art to teaching. I’ve learnt in the last year that as a psychologist/coach I’m not a teacher. I needed help.
