Are you wondering what’s possible when you create your own digital course?

I have a treat for you! In this episode of Your Million Dollar Side Hustle, I sat down with Emily Connors from The Creative Bodega to talk about how she built a business that fits into her life and has had amazing $80,000 launches.

Emily Connors is a mom, wife, Canva Verified Expert, marketing mentor, and 6-figure online course creator. She left her rigid, stressful 9-5 back in 2021 to become a full-time course creator to gain the freedom of time and flexibility!

She has a strong passion for teaching all things Canva, content creation, Instagram, systems, and organization. There’s nothing she loves more than helping service-based solopreneurs nail down foolproof content creation systems to make posting on social media simple and effective — in a way that actually grows and converts their audience!

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Emily’s business journey and how she got to where she is today
  • How Emily’s life has changed since she launched her first course
  • The ah-ha moments that contributed to Emily’s success
  • How her social media growth has impacted her business
  • How to avoid burnout and overwhelm with creating content
  • How Emily batches all of her content ahead of time
  • Why your email list is crucial to your success in business
  • The difference between regular content and content that converts
  • The importance of trusting your gut when it comes to your business

I hope you enjoyed this episode with Emily! If you want to learn more from her and see what she has to offer, make sure to check out her website and follow her on Instagram.

hi, i'm Anna!

I went from $200,000 in student loan debt to running a multi-million dollar online business in less than 5 years. Along the way, I realized Mondays can be great, stress doesn’t equal success, and you’re capable of more than you think. Now, I have the privilege of helping other ambitious individuals realize their potential and build their dream business and life.
