I also found this course on Udemy… what gives?

Udemy is an amazing platform, but from my perspective as a content creator, it’s not ideal. I don’t have direct control over pricing, and the engagement level with students isn’t as high.

By moving my courses to Podia, I have a lot more control and flexibility in how I create content. So, to make it worth your while, I’m going to add a few extra benefits for enrolling on Podia.

  • exclusive Discord channel for conversations
  • exclusive live QandA sessions
  • extra videos for cool new features

If you still want to take the course on Udemy, feel free. The core content will remain the same on both platforms.

Do you have any other courses?

Why yes, I do. You can find a full list of courses at

Are there refunds?

Yes. If you aren’t quite happy with the course, just let me know at

Is there a student discount?

Sure thing! Send me an email at with a picture of your student ID, and I’ll send you a 50% off link.
