Should you build an online course or a membership site?…especially for those who do freelance— charge per hour, bill per project, or those who require a constant amount of time when working. What are the benefits of building a course vs building a successful membership site for your business? I’ve been a coach during my early days of building my business. I’d impart my knowledge, my skills, and my expertise to others who need it day in and day out… and it was a fun experience. I got to meet a lot of people, help them out with their own businesses and learned a lot of things in the process.
