The Six Minute Strategist Blog and Optimistic Entrepreneur Podcast comprise a growing community of engaged Entrepreneurs – people just like you – who want to make a difference in the world and make money doing it.

My name is John Colley, the Six Minute Strategist and creator of the Optimistic Entrepreneur Podcast.  If you are new to this site, then this page is for you, it contains information which will help you access the resources that are available to you.

Are You Ready To Make Your Dent In The World?

I started blogging in 2009, podcasting in 2012  and created my first Online Course in 2013.

I started out just trying to reach out to a few like minded entrepreneurs to share my experience of business and online marketing.  Over the years I have created dozens of courses, videos, podcast episodes and blog posts – comprising a great catalogue of resources for Entrepreneurs – just like YOU!

From my success of creating a thriving online business based around my Online Courses, many people have asked for my help to find out how they can do the same.

This means that my goals are not about making money – but harnessing my knowledge, experience and content to help you do the same.

You can check out my Podcast here on the Blog and on iTunes to get all the Online Learning Podcasts Episodes too!

Are You Looking To Create Your Own Online Courses?

I created my first Online Course on Udemy in 2013 – it took me six months to make. Two months later I made $1,000 from it!

Nothing has been the same since!

Online Business Is More Than Just Courses

It has taken me a long time to realise that just sending out promotions does not work.

You have to create an interconnected network of great content which provides value and helps people!

I don’t spam.  I don’t used paid ads.

I don’t depend on complex funnels and endless email campaigns.

I just create and share great content – free and paid – to help people just like you.

Where Should You Start?

If you are absolutely new to creating Online Courses and teaching then take a look at my Beginners Course which you can access for free here as my special gift to help get you started.  As I said, its not all about the money!

The Optimistic Entrepreneur Podcast and its predecessor, The Online Learning Podcast also have great information and interviews for you to learn from.

You can also come and join my Facebook Groups.  If you are focusing on Online Course creation then definitely come and join the Online Learning Club.  If your interests are more broadly business focused, then The Optimistic Entrepreneur Mastermind is where you will find a community of liked minded souls.

My Youtube Video Channel also has hundreds of free video resources focusing on the key topics covered by my course – just click here to go and check the channel out.  Don’t forget to Subscribe while you are there!
