To achieve this, there are three key phases every instructor must go through to build a digital training business that you and your students are not only excited about every day, but one that delivers real results.
Ok, so let’s get started!
The Japanese martial arts concept known as "Shu Ha Ri" is used to describe 3 key phases of learning progression or training and is present at the core of every online course business. As an online leader, you must pass through these phases to become a recognized authority in your niche.
These are the three stages every online business owner will go through at some point in their entrepreneurial journey.
Stage 1: Shu "The Beginner"
In this stage, the student learns by applying step-by-step based on instruction.
Stage 2: Ha "The Practitioner"
In this stage, the student starts to apply what has been learned.
Stage 3: Ri "Advanced"
In this stage, the student starts to create freely without depending on the teacher.
