The book is a practical blueprint to guide the reader step by step to help them create their online course in 8 weeks or less. The guide will take them through the 4 phases of idea clarification, content creation, production in LMS, and getting ready for launch and re-launches by creating an exciting customer experience funnel.
In The Ultimate Course Creation Guide, Sophie shows you how to develop a robust educational program in bitesize pieces. She helps you clarify WHO your audience is, WHAT challenges they have, and HOW you can help them transform their lives and get the desired outcome. When you look at your online program through the eyes of your audience, it is much easier to include WHAT they need to know and WHY, and then show them HOW to apply what they are learning.
Sophie's approach to course creation reminds me of a recent conversation with Richard Branson, Founder of the Virgin Group. He said: "Any fool can make something complex. It's the really smart person who simplifies it."
Hi! I'm Sophie Higgins.
I help professionals create meaningful online courses and content with a real impact.
Online courses should be a well-crafted, empowering experience. So, your unique wisdom can make a real difference in the learners' life.
In January 2019, I chose to follow my heart and dream of an entrepreneurial lifestyle. I left everything I had in Denmark and headed to America with my new American husband and anything I could fit in one big suitcase.
Starting all over in my new country has been both exciting and challenging. Building a new business from scratch. Getting to use my 20+ years of experience in the learning industry in Denmark to help experts expand their businesses with online programs globally.
I am excited to use my unique background as a learning expert with 3 Master's Degrees, a well-known speaker, educational consultant, author, and high-school principal to help my clients reach their goals. I LOVE learning! To me, learning is the pathway to freedom!

First of all, yes, you. You are a leader. Whether you manage a team, a P&L, a household, or not, in 2021, we are all leaders. And we all need all of us to be leading the best we can.
This is an important moment. The world is suffering in so many ways. But as wise folks say, in crisis lies great opportunity.
I wrote this book because we have a massive opportunity to evolve to a more inclusive, antiracist, and sustainable version of capitalism. And however and wherever we each ‘lead,’ there are myriad ways that we can ALL contribute to that evolution, every single day in our work and lives.
The best thing is that leading purposefully is GOOD for us! It makes us feel better, physically and mentally, as individuals. And more focused, motivated, creative, and fulfilled.
Purposeful leaders' teams are more productive, engaged, trusting, and innovative. And that translates really quickly into profitability.
Finally, of course, leading purposefully is good for the world, and that means a healthy, prosperous, and equitable future for our grandkids and others who come next.
If you too think those Me-We-World benefits sound good, join me in Going First - it can feel a little scary at first, but once you see how good it feels, you’ll thank me for the invitation!
If not us, who? If not now, when?
