I love predictions - I love to think about them myself and I LOVE to hear what other people think is coming in terms of trends, shifts, and where we're headed as a community and the creator space as a whole. So.... what are *your* predictions for the creator space, online biz, etc for 2024 and beyond? 🔮 Let's share in the comments!
The 'old way' of doing online business with unethical tactics and high-pressure marketing will continue to decline, and we'll see more and more businesses emerge with or switch to genuinely valuable products, more interaction, and more community.
This is the introductions thread. Say hi, tell us what your business is all about! In your introduction, answer these 3 questions: ➡️ What is your name? (feel free to share pronouns if you’d like!) ➡️ What is your business or platform? Who do you serve, what do you sell, etc ➡️ If you were to host your dream party, and the sky was the limit, what would the theme be? We can’t wait to meet you!
G'day everyone, I'm Kelly and I'm Australian, currently living in beautiful Far North Queensland for a few months, but we spend most of our time travelling - we spent the first half of the year in Malaysia and Greece. I'm currently selling my first online business where I ran homeschooling summits and courses, and I'm dreaming of what I can do next. Now I've had the magical internet money funding our travel life for years I can't go back to a 'normal' job! I have a tie-dyeing site/YouTube channel where I'm working on getting ads/monetisation, but I'm also brainstorming ideas for topics I can create courses and digital products about - low-screen life? helping homeschooling travellers start online businesses? writing series' of ebooks? I don't know! But I'm having fun working it out. I also have five children and my youngest is 14, so we're looking at our post-child-raising life. So big changes are happening - I turn 40 soon so maybe it's my mid-life overhaul 😉 I've been following Mariah since....oh, probably 2016. Before the podcast, anyway! So I'm pretty excited to see this community and I'm positive it's going to be great.
I'm doing a workshop for an upcoming summit about earning online while travelling with your family specifically running your own business with info products like courses, ebooks, summits etc. If you do that (or know someone who does), can you please share? I'm looking for more real-life examples to share to inspire people. You'll get full credit and a link in the download. - no MLMs - prefer non-travel content - the quirkier the better! - it has to be financially supporting you. Not new, unproven businesses. Thank you! It's proving to be very difficult to find people, so any leads are very welcome!
Brilliant, thank you! I ran the workshop a few days after posting this, and it was really well-received. I'd love to update it for future runs with your details, because people have a lot of trouble picturing what they can do. I probably won't get to it this month, but I'll contact you when I'm ready to do it. Thanks again!
@Emma Powell I love that you hike with your kids! We did the first 700km of the Te Araroa in NZ with all five of ours (foot injury meant we had to stop) and we finished the Bibbulmun track last year with our two boys. Our eldest daughter decided to do the Tasmanian Trail at 17 and has the FKT for female solo unsupported. It's amazing what unschooled kids decide to do.
Thrivecart Pro with Learn+ for a few years now. I love their cart/upsell/affiliate setup because it all works seamlessly, and I especially love the one-off cost. No monthly bills for something so comprehensive is awesome. The appearance is pretty basic but they've just done a big upgrade to shopping cart pages - and let's face it, as long as it's easy to navigate and straightforward most people don't care about the page's appearance. I've also used Teachable and Podia, I'd recommend Podia above Teachable if you want a more all-in-one setup.
$12. It's basically a huge library of the 228 summit workshops I've hosted over the years. I'm about to sell the business so I haven't marketed it or done anything new since I low-key launched it a few months ago, and the members still keep slowly increasing (I think there's about 65 now). I'm positive that if I did something for them once a month or so I could have a lot more members. It's easy to get someone to sign up at a $12 price point, and easy to give them that amount of worth.
