    SwCA Episode 137: MYTH WARRIORS! - "Taking college courses online is easy!”

    in Business

    SITE: http://www.courtneyanderson.com/swca-episode-137-myth-warriors-series-taking-college-courses-online-is-easy.html


    SHOW NOTES: In the MYTH WARRIORS™ series we are targeting ideas to begin to assess whether they are credible or not. The topic for this episode is, “Taking college courses online is easy!”


    This is a myth. If you already have completed one or more college degrees, it is a myth yet you have a higher probability of success with this modality of college classes (as college classes are not easy whether online or on campus).


    Is it “true” that many people are taking online college courses? Yes.


    “According to Columbia University’s Community College Research Center, for example, about seven million students — about a third of all those enrolled in college — are enrolled in what the center describes as traditional online courses.” (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/19/opinion/the-trouble-with-online-college.html?_r=0)


    If everyone is doing it (i.e., it is popular), it must be easy, right? Wrong.


    “Students preferred direct instruction if they expected a course to be difficult, singling out math and science [...]. They also preferred a face-to-face setting when studying subjects they considered interesting or important, especially if the class was in their major. Many of the students said they learned more when the instructor is present.” (http://articles.latimes.com/2013/apr/25/local/la-me-ln-study-online-20130425)


    “[C]ourses delivered solely online may be fine for highly skilled, highly motivated people, but they are inappropriate for struggling students who make up a significant portion of college enrollment and who need close contact with instructors to succeed.[…]” (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/19/opinion/the-trouble-with-online-college.html?_r=0)

    How to Make $15K or more, Part-Time, as a CPR, Safety Instructor

    in Business

    CPR, First Aid, and other Safety Trainers know there IS money to be made in this business, but HOW TO MAKE THIS MONEY was not taught in your certification course.


    I have been a CPR/Safety instructor since 1997, and an Instructor Trainer since 2001.  During this time I have trained many new instructors not only from many states across the USA, but two came from the Caribbean to learn as well.  Some of those I trained have even become my local competitors.


    Over the years, I get asked the same question during the new Instructor Training, HOW can I make money doing this?  After sharing some of these secrets and strategies over and over and over, I made two videos about 3 years ago that together, have had more than 3000 views.  I figured, a few people really wanted to know more, so I made an online course. It does not matter what certification Board you teach for (Red Cross, National Safety Council, American Heart, OSHA, etc), this course will help anyone who is new to this business, or, those of you who have full time activities (nurse, EMT, Care givers, etc) that do not allow you to devote the kind of time it takes to build a successful side income from this.


    In fact, over the years, I have had MANY trials, failures, hurdles and tears.  This course will help you avoid that pain.


    This show, is actually created from the uploaded audio of the promotional video I made for that online course.  You can watch that video here.  Whenever you are ready to take your CPR, First Aid, Safety Training to the next income level, It would be my privilege to serve you.

    Spring Clean your Life with Christie Iurato and Coach Rea

    in Self Help

    Spring is here and Spring-cleaning comes to mind. Today we are talking about Spring-cleaning our lives, letting go, distressing our lives, and organizing our Lives with our great guest Christie Iurato. From the time she can remember, Christie has been transforming spaces everywhere she went. "It's this natural urge I've always had to make any space I'm in clean, clear and less cluttered. When I was a little girl, I remember going into my friends’ rooms and wanting to play organizing as a game! It was so fun for me and still is!” Years later, her friends started asking her to come to their homes and help with kids toys, clothes, kitchens and more and told her she should make a business out of this! Well, Christie took her friends advice seriously and founded her own organizing company in 2003. 


    Christie has organized and transformed hundreds of homes and offices over the past 10 years, has taken courses on counselling hoarders from Professional Hoarding Expert Cory Chalmers and has developed herself to be able to help people of all situations, backgrounds and diversities. Christie’s approach is very holistic, therapeutic, and helps bring people to a greater level of connection and appreciation for their home, offices and everything in them.
