Jackie Burgoa

Meet Jackie

“Hi! I’m Jackie. I have a degree in Architecture from U.C. Berkeley. An MBA from Nova University, a Master of Science in Finance from FIU and you might say I eat, breathe and sleep business growth!

As a digital marketer and business owner, I spend most of my time learning and applying strategies on how to grow a business so I can sell it at a profit! – I share everything I learned over the past 18+ years in my Udemy courses!

In August 2015, my youngest son turned 21. After 20 years of building businesses (many times I succeeded, many times I failed) I ditched my massive house and moved to a cozier place. My goal is to be able to spend more time creating Udemy courses (In English and Spanish) and share my knowledge. I also want to dedicate my time to building IoT (Internet of Things) projects…ah, and Crowdfund them whenever possible.”

    June 15, 2015 by peblogger from Australia

    John’s podcasts are obviously very good / just listen to some of his podcasts and you will realize: They are based on experience and his skills. Highly recommended. Thank you John!

  • John IS my first resource for all things online learning
    May 12, 2015 by ThinkSkyBlue from United States

    John has covered just about every aspect of planning, creating, and selling online courses on Udemy, other platforms like Thinkific, Fedora, etc…. and everything else related, like a course to a Amazon book and visa versa. These podcasts are just saturated with useful info on just about every major topic a instructor could hope to learn. Just listening today as he interviewed Robert Scot (Dr. Youtube) and I was like “Wow” Robert just gave us every critical technique and secret to ranking your videos at the top of youtube AND google… Then his podcast with Alun Hill was epic and chock full of amazing marketing tips for selling your online course with Alun’s no nonsense style… and on, and on… Only podcast in this particular genre right now I think. Next John, I love if you could interview Chris Lema and/or Brian Clark and pick their brains on the Rainmaker Pro LMS, maybe Chris Brogan? David Siteman? Miguel Hernandez, Phil Ebiner? I’m sure you have a list too … Keep up the good work John! -James Forno P.S. Udemy should make your podcast a suggested routine for all instructors .

    I had the pleasure of being a guest on John's podcast and checked it out beforehand. I was blown away by the value that I got from the episodes and continue to listen to current and past episodes. Not only did I learn about interesting courses on Udemy, but I also got some great tips from other course creators. John does a wonderful job of asking the questions we'd ask if we were in his seat.

    Fantastic podcast, especially if you love learning. I have discovered a whole range of online instructors in a wide range of subjects and enrolled in many of their courses. There are weekly marketing tips and an insight into how the instructors created their courses. Having just published my own online course, the online learning podcast is just spot on!

    This is a great podcast whether you are looking to learn or teach something new. As a tutor I can learn marketing tips for my course and as a student I can listen to interviews with teachers whose courses I am considering taking with the added bonus that they give discounts to their course. In the interest of honesty - i am a tutor who has been interviewed on this podcast.

    Sadly life is limited on time. This podcast cuts down on time spent to find interesting courses online.

  • What I've been waiting for
    October 24, 2013 by RobCubbon from United Kingdom

    John Colley gives us an insight to the online learning world. It is a world that is huge and growing and there isn't enough information about it on the web in general and specifically on iTunes. Successful individuals in this new economy will be the ones who can adapt to new technologies the quickest. One of the main ways they will be doing this is through online learning. And one of the main industries that will benefit from this is online teaching. John gives us information about both of these worlds through his podcast – the online teaching world as well as the online learning world. I would thoroughly recommend you give this a listen. I do have to add a disclaimer in that I am one of his interviewees. But I have no hesitation in recommending this podcast though after having listened to the first four episodes. Knowing John's expertise in this area as well as his ability to conduct a great interview means this has all the hallmarks of a successful podcast series.
