Thanks David for sharing this but your event is now in my calendar and I can't delete it.  Kind of intrusive.

I'm not exactly a professional-collage-maker but this one brings a smile because I love bragging about my Create Awesome Online Courses students.

A small collection of "first sale stories" ...because nothing is more amazing than creating an online course and getting that VERY first sale. 

Every streak starts with 1.

Over the past few years I’ve been super fortunate to teach thousands of students in hundreds of countries how to create, promote & sell their own online programs on every topic imaginable from snowboarding to kindergarten teaching. 

And one of the big questions I’ve asked over 20,000 times: What is your biggest FEAR in creating/selling your own online program?

And without a shadow of a freakin’ doubt the #1 fear that continually reveals its ugly head is that you will spend a ton of time (and in some cases money) creating a really cool online program, launch it to the world anddddddddddd....crickets. And by crickets, I mean no sales. 

Well, I’ve got good news, you can wipe that fear right out of your happy head because here comes a brand new free training webinar for ya: "7 steps to selling an online product (workshop/bootcamp/course) BEFORE you create it"

Back with ANOTHER success story...gotta love these (I mean do they get old? Nope).

I love bragging about my CAOCers (Create Awesome Online Courses students) who are rocking so you can get some ideas and inspiration (and also give them a pat on the back...they deserve it).

Chris is a long time student of mine and a fantastic action taker who totally crushed his his “Top Producer Blueprint” course.

In this interview, Chris spills all the beans. Unfiltered. Uncensored. Check it out: www.therisetothetop.com/chris

Happy Birthday buddy and good luck with your floor hockey championship. Just use some knuckle pucks and the good old flying V. They'll never know what hit them ;) I look forward to seeing you on Thursday's webinar. Until then, take care and enjoy what's left of your 20's.

Just wanted to give some MAJOR props to my buddy James Wedmore who has created an absolutely epic new program and sales page. 

Seriously check out the sales page (it is a work of art).

And, if you want to learn how to create 'do-it-yourself' marketing videos that don't look like you did them yourself you should definitely enroll in his 48 hour film school (James is one of the best teachers out there)

Creator/Host of The Rise To The Top: The #1 Badass Show, Resource & Community For Mediapreneurs. Passionate about helping mediapreneurs turn their expertise into a badass online brand...oh look a squirrel... :)
Introduction

Hi! I’m David Siteman Garland. I’m the Creator/Host Of The Rise To The Top, Entrepreneur, Emcee, Host, Author, 

Here are 10 fun facts about me:

1. I’m the creator/host of one of the Internet’s most popular, successful and longest running web shows, blog & resources The Rise To The Top: THE #1 Badass Show, Resource & Community For Mediapreneurs. To date, The Rise To The Top web TV show & podcast has been viewed over 6,000,000 times in over 100 countries. The Rise To The Top is all about helping aspiring/rising mediapreneurs (peeps who create online media, experts, authors, thought leaders, personal brands, coaches, Internet marketers/information marketers) grow their biz like a weed & dominate online.

2. In 2008, at the age of 24, I took all of my Bar Mitzvah money I’d saved up and started a television show in St. Louis, Missouri on ABC with literally zero experience writing, producing or hosting a television show. The Rise To The Top TV show focused on entrepreneurship and aired for 36 episodes.

3. To date, I’ve had conversations with well over 300 diverse, awesome people on the show with a special focus on interviewing experts, thought leaders and & personal brands about how they build their biz. Some of my favorites include The Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger, Two-time New York Times Best Selling Author Tim Ferriss and creator of Wine Library TV Gary Vaynerchuk. About 10,000 times a day (slight exaggeration) I get emails & messages from people who want to create and profit from their own web shows which led me to develop the most comprehensive course on the subject called Create Awesome Interviews: Learn “The Rise To The Top” System for Creating, Promoting & Profiting from Online Interviews which teaches all my secrets.

4. In 2010, Wiley Publishing approached me to write a book to help folks market and promote themselves and their expertise online based on knowledge that I’d picked up while growing my show from 0-200,000 viewers, hundreds of media hits and more despite spending (pretty much) $0 on marketing…and hundreds of interviews with others who had done something similar. My book Smarter, Faster, Cheaper came out holiday time in 2010.

5. Besides the show, I love entertaining and bringing high energy to high-end events/projects. Recently, I was the emcee for Shine: The Premier Event For Women Entrepreneurs taking the stage for three days straight and keeping the crowd of over 500 female entrepreneurs energized and also traveled to Google for a full day of on camera work as a spokesperson for a new program created by Google as well as online marketing/brand building consulting. I also occasionally do one-on-one consulting sessions to help super passionate, awesome people build their business online.

6. I’m a spokesguy/fitness model for an amazing fitness & nutrition program Jet Set Body (that’s my special link). I’m extremely passionate about fitness, nutrition and health. I recently went through a massive fitness transformation where I took on a challenge to get into fitness model shape in 90 days which has been featured in all kinds of places including Bodybuilding.com.

7. I went to college at Washington University in St. Louis and majored in (brace yourself) Women’s Studies. Yes, that was my actual major and it was a blast.

8. My first “job” I was supposed to have out of college in the hockey industry was eliminated before it even started as the place I was going to work at became a parking lot two weeks before I moved out to California. Ended up being the biggest blessing-in-disguise ever.

9. From 2006-2008 I played Professional Inline Hockey (yes, hockey on wheels) and ran the league in the Midwest which included St. Louis, Chicago and Cincinnati. It was one HECK of a learning experience and led to me somehow hosting a radio show on one of the top sports stations in St. Louis (again, no experience).

10. I live in exotic St. Louis, Missouri where I was born and raised. I’m a huge Blues, Cardinals and Rams fan and love being so close to my family (family first!). My wife, Marcie, is also a St. Louis native and is the love of my life and soul-mate (awww warm fuzzy moment!).
