IAM1828 – Online Course Creator Helps Business Owners Turn Their Passion Into Profitable Online Course

Podcast Interview with Molly Keyser

Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”:

In this episode of the I AM CEO Podcast, host Gresham Harkless interviews Molly Keyser, an online course creator who helps business owners turn their passion into a profitable online course. Molly has had a successful career in photography and has leveraged her knowledge and experience to create a business course for other photographers. She grew her course business to generate $2 million per year, benefiting tens of thousands of business owners worldwide.

Molly's mission with Profitable Courses is to assist business owners in creating their own profitable online courses that generate passive income. She currently resides in New Mexico with her husband Aaron and their dog Franklin, enjoying outdoor activities like camping, road-tripping, and connecting with friends.

In her CEO story, Molly shares her passion for photography from a young age and pursued it in college. However, she realized that she was not taught about running a business alongside her passion. After achieving success in her photography studio, other photographers began asking her how she achieved it. She then discovered the world of digital products and online courses. Over six years, Molly taught photographers through her course, growing it into a $2 million per year venture.

In 2021, Molly and her husband started their own company focused on helping business owners, content creators, and coaches turn their knowledge into profitable online digital products. The main business service provided by Molly and her company, Profitable Courses, is online courses. She operates a membership called the Creator Accelerator. Molly's secret sauce lies in teaching herself the desired results and then helping others achieve those results. She believes that one doesn't need years of experience or excessive profits to begin teaching others.

Her CEO hack emphasizes the importance of being in a good mood and taking care of oneself and one's mental health in business. Maintaining a consistently positive mood is crucial. Molly's CEO nugget advises entrepreneurs not to immediately create another product after finding success with the first one. Instead, she highlights the importance of continually selling and promoting the initial successful product.

For Molly, being a CEO means being a visionary who guides the company in the right direction. It involves consistently looking ahead and anticipating the market's needs. Ultimately, the success of the company depends on the CEO's leadership.

I do think that in order to be productive and successful, you need to be in like a good mood. Because in business, there are a lot of ups and there are a lot of downs and it really doesn't matter how big your company is.

In order to keep your mood good to be able to deal with, problems that arise or things that come up that aren't necessarily positive all the time, you just need to be taking care of yourself and your mental health.

Hello, this is Gresh from the I AM CEO podcast and I appreciate you listening to this episode. If you've been listening this year, you know that we've hit 1600 episodes at the beginning of this year. We're doing something a little bit different where we're repurposing our favorite episodes around certain categories, topics, or as I like to call them business pillars that we think are going to be extremely impactful for CEOs, entrepreneurs, and business owners, just like you, what I like to call the CB nation architects who are looking to level up their organizations.

This month, we are focusing on CEO Hacks and CEO Nuggets. This is by far one of my favorite questions I asked on the show. In other words, I asked, what are the apps, books, and habits that make you more effective and efficient? Those were the CEO hacks. Then I asked for a word of wisdom or a piece of advice, or something that you might tell your younger business if you were to hop into a time machine and those were the CEO nuggets. That's what we'll focus on this month and some of the top ones that can instantly impact your business.

I love all the questions, but with every episode, I thought I would walk away with something I could look at and implement right there to save the precious resources, time, and money. Or I would also learn about the advice, tips, and tidbits or tools of the trade on how to level up our organization. So you'll hear some of these this month. So sit back and enjoy this special episode of the I AM CEO podcast.
