The truth is...
You know you want to make more money by creating an online course.
But, not just any course...
A course with impact.
A course that is transformational.
A course that gets your students results.
But you have been struggling for a while now. Maybe you're stuck between the hundreds of notebooks, post-it notes, ideas,
Should you record with slides? Without slides? Include workbooks? Tutorials? Use a script?
There's so many decisions to make.
(And maybe there's that little voice inside your head that is saying you don't have what it takes-or better known as imposter syndrome.)
Deep down you are afraid to go through all of the work of creating & launching an online course and actually have no one buy... or worse yet... have no one get results!
Because you care about your people and their results.
And, you’re not someone who is just here to make millions… you're someone with a huge desire to help more people so you can live the life you want and make a real difference in the world..
I get it... me too.
🤔 You were able to impact hundreds of people across the world with the knowledge you have about real estate, home organization, meal planning, running half marathons, cleaning your house, finding your soulmate, creating an online cooking show, homeschooling your children, or working with children with dyslexia to name a few...
🤔 You could create something transformational and effective once and then deliver it again and again
🤔 AND make sales--even when you are sleeping or on a bike ride with your kiddos!
Whether it's igniting your passion, creating more income for your family, or making a bigger impact on the world it's all going to depend on how effective of a course you create.
The Formula is Simple...
Imagine if you had a program filled with the people you love to work with and you know exactly how to get them results. Your course is meaningful and provides a transformation so great your students have become your biggest marketing asset.
All you need is a proven plan, with ready-to-use tools, tutorials, and resources to help you out every step of the way from creating a transformational course all the way through selling and delivering an effective online course.

Hey! I'm Kristin...
After 10 years of classroom teaching experience, a Masters degree in education, 3 years in business, and quickly selling a digital product to 274 people, I was intrigued by the idea of creating, recording, and sharing my knowledge on course creation. I decided to start teaching people what I knew-- but not just the way every one else teaches it. I knew I had to help save people from wasting so much time and money launching a course that wasn't transformational and sustainable.
There are so many people teaching how to create and sell an online course, but missing the mark on the actual course creation piece: How to teach, what to teach, what order to teach it in, how much to teach, and how to measure the results of your students. This is what puts many new course creators on the course creator's path of failure. Why? They don't know HOW to teach. Without an effective course, students don't get results. Without results your course isn't scalable OR sustainable.
I developed the Effective Course Creator system based off of ten years of classroom teaching experience, a Masters degree in education, and the experience I've had with selling my digital products and courses to 1000 students. The Effective Course Creator is for small business owners who are ready to increase their reach, impact, and bank accounts with an online course, but not just any online course, an effective and transformational online course.
My mission is to help business owners create and sell a sustainable, scalable, and transformational online course with best learning practices and educational strategies so their students get results and they can make more money. Here at She's Building a Dream we are changing the online course industry and we are inviting you to join us.
Maybe this sounds familiar...
- You have been sitting on a course for what-feels-like a million years but you get so stuck under the piles of notebooks, plans, & Trello Boards--because you know there’s a difference between an effective course and one that just sits on someone’s google drive shelf
- You are a smart marketer--but teacher? You didn’t sign up to become a teacher when you started a business
- You are stuck between the imposter syndrome and the "am I really qualified to teach this" mindset trap--because quite honestly you don’t know how to get people results with a course
- You believe anyone can create a course--but not everyone can create something that is transformational and you’re afraid that might be you
- You have taken several courses from smart business people--but didn’t learn a thing.. And you are afraid the same thing will happen to your students
Perhaps you’ve stumbled across the mistakes the vast majority of ineffective course creators make…
Their courses lack a flow and leave you with more confusion than transformation.
They have spent so much time making everything “look pretty”. Do people say, “Wow those course slides were amazing” or “Those were some great graphics”? Definitely not— people want RESULTS when they purchase a course.
They are training people using all “talking head” videos and quite honestly are boring–especially if you are a visual or kinesthetic learner. Two modules in, you have tuned them out and never finished their course.
They created a course quickly and put together a webinar or 5 day challenge like the big gurus taught–spending 75% of their time on marketing and sales but they don’t have true testimonials and results to share because quite honestly they have created a course with no transformation.
The Truth About Online Course Creation
I’ve been teaching since I was 4 years old...starting with stuffed animals surrounding a piano (true story), turned into summer camps, and a classroom teacher for 10 years. I can tell you one thing is for sure: Many people are overconfident in their ability to teach someone their knowledge. Without having the knowledge and application of teaching strategies, your students won’t complete your course or get results. If you are unsure how to teach effectively or your head is spinning with all the “to-dos” of course creation, this program will fix that for you.

What Does it Mean to be an Effective Course Creator?
"helped me to sell OVER 24 spots in my Mama-tography class!"
Brittney E Photography
To say I'm a happy client of Kristin's is an understatement. She has been BEYOND helpful, uplifting and encouraging. She has been a big inspiration to be for awhile now. I just want to simply TEACH, be a helping hand to other photographers. Kristin coached me with my first class. I was limited on money and skill. I was so nervous. I knew my class had/has a lot of value in it. ALOT! But I was nervous to sell it for what I KNEW it was worth...even as a beta class. Kristin encouraged me AND I HAVE SOLD OVER 24 spots in my Mama-tography class which is all about the basics of manual mode etc. OVER 24 spots in my beta testing!!!! My goal was 5!!!!! In the beginning she made sure I had a clear understanding of my niche and where I saw myself going with this. I NEVER worked with a coach before...I didn't even know what a coach would do.
"I really don't know another resource like Kristin--who knows how to teach"
It was so powerful to be able to tap into Kristin's insights and expertise, AND with someone who actually knows how to teach! She really is onto something and there's no doubt she's changing the course creation industry. I really don't know another resource like her--especially someone who knows online courses, marketing, & how to teach. I'm really excited for the changes and things we made to my course.
"...I got to own the process and feel successful in coming up with a great plan..."
I was feeling like all my ideas were crashing into each other and every thread of content led to a different end. Kristin was incredibly responsive and helped me see what was important in my course and I was able to leave the rest for another day, or another program. In just one workshop, she helped me simplify by asking really good questions. I got to own the process and feel successful in coming up with a great plan. Her calm, insightful coaching made all the difference for me!
"...helped me over what felt like a huge mountain, giving me clarity and excitement in my next steps..."
It was incredibly helpful to have Kristin help me with finalizing my modules, answering my questions, and setting up my course which is now all ready to be recorded! She helped me over what felt like a huge mountain, giving me clarity and excitement in my next steps. As we nailed down the modules and submodules, she was so helpful, decisive, brilliant, and fast! I quickly got my course in place, which feels like a huge hurdle she got me over! All we accomplished for my course is now propelling me forward with excitement and clarity!
