You’ve found the perfect online business course for you and enrolled.  You’re motivated to get started and excited to implement what you learn on the course in your business. However, it doesn’t take long for procrastination to set in and soon you’re ignoring the reminder emails and telling yourself you’ll do it next week.

8 Tips to make the most of your online business course.

  1. Schedule learning time – plan ahead and block out specific hours, days and times to work through the course. Scheduling an entire day could mean you’re less likely to stick it. Try just blocking off an hour or two so it’s less overwhelming.
  2. Don’t stress or worry about not having the time – Try not to think about all the work you need to do. Take it one step at a time. Follow along with your course lesson by lesson.
  3. Stay focused – Remove as many distractions as possible. Find a quiet space to work where you know you won’t be disturbed. Tell people who might what you’re doing so they don’t! Switch your mobile to flight mode.
  4. Arm yourself with helpful tools – It might be a new app to make lists and takes notes or a brand new notebook and pen. Somewhere special to write notes and ideas down will help you to feel excited about coming back.
  5. Join the community – Many online courses come with access to a community of some kind, such as a Facebook group with other students who are also taking the course. Getting advice and support from others participating in the online business course can be really helpful.
  6. Ask Questions! If you get stuck or something doesn’t make sense don’t take a break or give up..find the answer! If there’s a community then that’s a good place to start. There may be conversations and answers related to your question already there. If not, do ask, and remember: there is no such thing as a dumb question. We love receiving questions because it provides an insight into what else we could do to improve our online business course. It’s also a great way to start deeper conversations about the course and how things are progressing.
  7. Don’t feel you’ve failed if you start again – To redo or rewatch something or even start over may be the right thing to do. It’s important that the information you’re learning has been fully understood.
  8. Enjoy the process!
