106: Stu McLaren | How to Sell Courses Online

Stu McLaren Smart Business Revolution John Corcoran


Stu McLaren started his first online business just prove that it couldn’t be successful. Luckily, he proved himself wrong.

Stu launched that first business selling Halloween decorations just a few weeks before the holiday and learned his first lesson in business.

He’s since gone on to partner with key influencers like Russell Brunson and Michael Hyatt. Now, he’s stepping out from the behind the scenes to launch his own online courses about membership websites.

Stu’s story is so inspiring and one I think you’ll really be able to connect with.

In this episode, we also talk about:

  • How One $8 Sale Changed Stu’s Life
  • How Stu and Russell Brunson Became Business Partners
  • Why and How Stu Created Wishlist
  • How Stu and Michael Hyatt Became Business Partners
  • How to Develop a Relationship with a Key Influencer
  • How to Create Content for an Entire Year in Less Than a Week
  • The Difference Between Being Behind the Scenes and Being Front and Center
  • Who Stu Thanks for His Success

This episode is sponsored today by Rise25 Inner Circle… Rise25 is an exclusive, application-only accountability and group coaching program for professional services entrepreneurs running 6, 7 and 8 figure businesses who want to scale up, and shift from “one to one” client work to “one to many.”

Rise25 Inner Circle was founded by my business partner, Dr. Jeremy Weisz and myself… every few months, at 4-star luxury properties, we bring together like-minded entrepreneurs who come from client-serving backgrounds and they want to make the shift from chasing clients to having large groups of clients and buyers chasing them.

What makes these events different from any other events you’ve seen for entrepreneurs is we bring in our “Sherpas” – 8 and 9 figure entrepreneurs who are there the full time, in the retreat room providing feedback. Think of the Sharks from “Shark Tank” except they only give out advice rather than investment.

Then we back up those live in-person retreats with ongoing, regular accountability and group coaching – so you are guaranteed to turn inspiration into action.
