A great course is a catalyst for transformation. First, you need to identify what your course is about, who it's for, and what transformation you want to create. Using our proven frameworks and templates, you'll shape your positioning and ship your course landing page.
Your curriculum is a roadmap for how your students will get from point A to B. Using our templates, you’ll write compelling learning objectives, design interactive learning exercises, and explore different curriculum formats with real-world examples. You’ll develop a syllabus that helps your students learn & do.
Most courses focus too much on the why. Great courses focus on the how. In this module, you’ll dissect the building blocks of an effective lesson, so you can implement active learning tactics like state changes and breakouts in your own course.
You don’t need to be a marketer or have thousands of followers to fill your cohort. You'll learn to play the long game of expanding your course community to scale your leverage over time. By the end of the Maven Course Accelerator, you'll be ready for a successful launch.

We start with course-market fit so you can build marketing into the DNA of your course from day one. You will narrow your topic, define your ideal student, and articulate your spiky point of view. By the end of this week, you'll ship your landing page.
You'll determine the key components of your course, from learning objectives to hands-on projects. Then, we'll dive into course mechanics such as length and pricing.
You'll create an engaging, interactive lesson with active learning using the Building Blocks of an Effective Lesson. You'll also break down effective exercise prompts, and you'll write your own breakout prompt.
We'll demystify course marketing funnels, tactics, and break down an effective nurture email. Even if you have a small audience, you can leverage less scalable but high conversion methods like personal email, 1:1s, and workshops. You'll plan your next steps to launch your course.
You'll demo your course landing page and get peer feedback. Then, celebrate everything you've accomplished in a lively graduation ceremony!
30 min of prep (pre-recorded videos, readings) before each workshop, so we can focus more on doing, less on lecture.
Every workshop is designed to help you put your learning into practice and ship your course pilot.
You’ll build and learn alongside a curated group of operators and experts. Our alumni include Lenny Rachitsky, Arielle Jackson, Li Jin, Marily Nika, Anthony Pompliano, Greg Isenberg, Amanda Natividad, and Logan Ury.
Expert staff and your peers will keep you accountable and help you get unstuck.
