002: How to Leverage Online Courses to Build a Thriving Membership Site, with Sarah Mackenzie

What started out as a hobby for today’s guest, Sarah Mackenzie, has exploded into a podcast with over 1 million downloads that reaches tens of thousands of listeners each month. But Sarah’s favorite? The membership site where she brings the very best authors, events, and online courses to her audience…and makes a healthy income for her family. This ride has taken Sarah from burned-out blogger to Smart CEO.

  • The critical move from having a blogger mindset to becoming an entrepreneur
  • One key thing that helped Sarah start creating better resources to help her audience
