The Teaching Sells 20-Step Road Map
Building an online business is, in many ways, simpler than building a more traditional brick-and-mortar business. But the reality is, there are a lot of steps. And if you miss one, your business will tend to stall out. It helps to have a road map … a document that outlines the individual “markers” along the way, so you’re sure you’re going in the right direction.
That’s why we put together this simple process map for you. Some of these “mile markers” will be simple for you, and some you may have already passed. Others may be aspects you need more help with. Either way, it’s always useful to have a map of the territory. Click the link below to see the map, or right-click to download it to your machine.
(In just a couple of days, we’ll be sending you the Teach and Grow Rich report, which maps each of these steps onto the Teaching Sells curriculum, so you can see precisely how to use the course to reach your goals.) Watch your email!

See how other businesses did it …
Seeing how others have used these ideas and techniques is sometimes the easiest way to understand how you could apply them yourself. We teach 10 different business models in Teaching Sells, and each of those can be combined and re-combined into an almost infinite number of combinations.
Here are stories from four of our students.
Carole Sevilla Brown: Ecosystem Gardening
Carole was in a tight spot — after some serious challenges, she needed to reinvent herself and find a new way to make a living. She signed up for Teaching Sells and energetically started putting the pieces together.
After using the forums to refine her unique message, she turned her knowledge into a creating a new and highly specific niche — and learned how to translate opportunities into revenue. Now she has a business that meets her financial needs and feeds her passions.
Forest Linden: Tech Husband
Ever notice that major life changes like to bunch up on you? Forest was laid off from a job he loved, moved to a new community, and found out his wife was pregnant … all events uncomfortably close together.
The great thing is, that kind of pressure can create terrific focus. Forest has created two sustainable businesses using Teaching Sells, and he’s still learning and growing.
Pamela Wilson: Big Brand System
Pamela Wilson started out with some strong skills as a graphic designer and marketing consultant, but she was getting a little tired of trading hours for dollars. Teaching Sells allowed her to leverage her time and serve customers she’d never been able to serve. Now she’s on track to fully transitioning her business model for more freedom and more opportunities for growth.
Jon Morrow: GuestBlogging.com
When you meet Jon, the first thing you realize is that he’s not big on excuses. He’s ambitious, he’s focused, and he has very little patience for the expression “I can’t.” Not everyone has Jon’s drive, but for those who do, an online business can reap some very attractive rewards.
And here are some earlier Teaching Sells students who built very different types of businesses around their own varying goals and strengths:
