Quit 'Frankensteining' your
online courses together.

C3 is a Course Business Accelerator for advanced course creators only.

Come for step-by-step curriculum to upgrade your course business.

Stay to learn and grow alongside other top creators moving upstream.

Maybe so far you have:

hacked together best practices from books, podcasts, social media;

devoted all your time and energy to making your courses sustainable;

found yourself alone in making the tough decisions needed to level up;

tricked yourself into thinking this is what you wanted all along.

The most influential course creators have struggled, too.

They know what separates good courses from great ones.

If I have one lesson to share, it's this:
what got you here
won't get you there.

The online education landscape is changing.

I think a lot about teaching and learning online.

I've worked with tons of creators who made successful businesses out of their expertise.

They all needed a method to advance beyond the phase of hacking solutions together.

You can create a transformational course without burnout, stress, and haphazard resource-stacking.

I know that the joy of serving your students shouldn’t come with the burdens of uncertainty or frustration.

I’ve seen the journey from dream course to reality. I’ve seen what’s possible.

Our Vision

This memo was written and finalized on November 5, 2021 to outline the vision for C3.

It is written in the present tense as if it were delivered as a “state of the union” address.

It addresses current and past members on December 31, 2023 at a resort destination in South Africa.

The goal of this memo is to visualize a future for C3 that we can make manifest together.

It's time to leave a legacy with your work.
