Let's go back in time to when I started my first business in 2009.

I want to share the story of how I have used courses to monetize my businesses and walk you through exactly how to do it, and how to keep on expanding your business.

I strongly encourage you to incorporate courses into your business - It's the secret to growth and scalability.

By leveraging my courses, my business grew like magic achieving six figure success!

If you are interested in learning how to make this your reality, join me as we dive into the world of courses and entrepreneurship, where possibilities are endless, and success is within reach!

About Donna Ashton

I'm Donna Ashton, sorceress, course expert and host of Mystic Mic: Turn Words into Wealth podcast.

I built a multiple 6-figure business entirely with courses and programs while working about 15 hours per week so I can have 4-Day weekends every week.

I wave my magic wand and reuse content (book, presentation, workbooks, etc.) of overwhelmed thought leaders, authors and speakers who want to monetize what they've already created into a program to make more income and impact.

Which course is best for your business? Take my quiz.
