You listen to Course Lab because you want to learn how to make online courses that are more impactful for your students and successful for you.

     Danny Iny and Abe Crystal appreciate the opportunity to really dive into the design of a course to help you take away what’s most relevant for your own courses. That’s why they thought you might be interested in a brand-new show that just joined the Mirasee FM Podcast Network. It's called Once Upon a Business, and it’s hosted by their good friend and colleague, Lisa Bloom, the Story Coach.
     In Once Upon a Business, Lisa reaches into a fairy, folk, or traditional tale and pulls out the business and growth lessons that you can apply to your own course business. To give you a taste of the show, they’re running an episode from that podcast right here in your feed. Abe chose this particular episode because the tailor in the story creates something beautiful, hits a wall, but then iterates and keeps going. Sound familiar? Keep listening, and you'll hear exactly what this new show is all about.

So, come now. Gather around the fire. Lisa’s about to begin….
