One of my business mottos is "Simplify and Automate so You Have Time to Create" and that really applies to Descript.
I just discovered this tool and have only played with it for a few days but I'm already in love and had to share it with you. I could've waited to post a review after becoming an expert with Descript. However, I don't want you to waste one more day doing your course videos the hard way or paying someone to do them for you.
As you read, please keep in mind that Descript has similar features for AUDIO but I'm going to focus on VIDEO here, as that's a big hurdle for many course creators due to the tedious and complex editing process.

Hey there! If you're not a follower of Marie Forleo's and/or an alumni of her online business program called B-School, this post might not make much sense to you, lol.
... That said, everyone is, of course, welcome and encouraged to read. It's actually a good lesson for ALL online marketers, coaches, thought leaders, and, well, anyone who uses Facebook groups in their business.

So, here's the scoop:
There were over 31,000 members in this active group that had been in existence for, I believe, over 10 years. So, yeah, it's a big deal.

In this time of social distancing, financial hardships, and so many employees being furloughed, I'm hearing a lot of talk about how, especially as a Kajabi expert and partner, I should be encouraging people to start their own businesses. With an all-in-one business platform like Kajabi, they can start a side hustle now for future security (should things get worse) or maybe they need to jump right into full-time self-employment.
As much as I want to get behind all of this, I do have some reservations and this is why: There are clearly a lot of myths about working from home and about home-based business ownership. (Note: Our health crisis is a serious matter and humor is one way we're getting through it. Please know this post is tongue-in-cheek).
For instance, people think it's easy, anyone can do...
As many of us are now sequestered at home during the "Covid crisis", I thought I'd share some resources I've gathered from around the interwebs to educate, inspire, and calm you.
It's been heartening to see the generosity of individuals and companies during this time of challenge for us all. Whether you want to learn something new, find work, or just pass the time, I've got you covered.
Please note that some of these things are always free/discounted/available, others are time-limited. So if you click a link and don't find the offer I mentioned, it must have expired (womp womp ... sorry).

It's B-School launch time!! That means you're likely being inundated with emails and social media posts from former B-School students enticing you to join the Marie Forleo program. There's a big reason for that: the B-School affiliate program.
Unless someone (like me) comes out and says they are NOT a B-School affiliate, you can assume they likely are one, especially if they're offering bonuses or special programs if you sign up through their specific B-School link.
What's in it for them? Keep reading ...

Marie has hand-selected B School alums to be her affiliates which means they promote B School and she pays them a (cough cough pretty hefty cough cough) commission for each sale. Okay, let's be real: They get 50% of the $1,999 sign-up fee.
For the record, I have absolutely no problem with this because I'm an...
The tag line for ErikaFriday.com is "Kajabi and Marketing for Creative Solopreneurs." Is that you? Are you in the right place?
When I started the site, I had my own list in my head about what professions I considered to be creative entrepreneurs/solopreneurs. To make sure I was on the right track - and wasn't leaving anyone out - I posted a survey in an online business Facebook group and here's the list we crowdsourced:
brand strategist/branding expert
creative virtual assistant (VA)
digital product designer
fiction and non-fiction writers
social media manager/strategist
