If this Lockdown has galvanized you to start teaching online for the first time, share more substantive offerings online, or move your entire career online, you are probably realizing its not as simple as you thought.

You have likely been looking for the right platform, and you certainly noticed there are a lot of options with different features and a significant learning curve to determine what is the best fit for your needs. Even with 100's of platforms and 1000's of features, not even one will do posting, polishing, or marketing for you. Seriously.

You are likely weighing the costs of the pro-memberships, processing and hosting fees, which begin to add up, especially if you want them to interact with your website. And take it from me, there will be plenty of hidden costs and tomes of labor you can't predict right now.

How do you choose between the many options out there? There is a LOT to consider:

  • What about marketing, registration, effective emails, SEO, funneling, and accounting?
  • What affordable upgrades do you need to make for quality at-home production?
  • How can you optimize your curriculum for different learning modalities for an effective participant experience?
  • How do you track the experience of your participants and get feedback?
  • Will you need a business license or a LLC? And how will this change your tax process?
  • Which of these companies have values in alignment with your own, so you know you are not contributing to deplorable politics and policies?

You might be realizing you will need a virtual assistant, or a online specialist business coach, and finding the right help is another step before you can just offer what you already have to offer!

Of course, there are a bunch of ($expensive$) online coaching courses you can take that are geared to teach you how to do most of these things, and just finding one that doesn't leave a bad taste in your mouth from the gimmicks and marketing "guru" personalities is a chore, AND it further delays you actually offering what you have to offer.

Can you figure all this out? Of course, you are a badass. But is it the most beneficial way to spend your time? I think not.

You are creative and ready to share your wisdom and connect to people. Your potential students are needing your support NOW; people are stuck at home looking for meaningful resources NOW.

Yet its taking most of your time and energy getting bogged down with all this research and administration, so its going to take a while to launch even though you know right now what you want to teach.

... All this just to get your voice out there? #pullinghairoutlevels

Okay, there is more but I will stop for now. And you can too.

As the Director of TRU, I want to support you with all of the above so you can just focus on perfecting your curriculum and deeply connecting to and uplifting folks, now in these challenging times.

I have been producing online classes focused on transformative curriculum with a virtual team since 2012. This is my jam and I know the ins and outs. I've been a part of this industry while it exploded and kept my finger on the pulse the entire time.

I am NOT trying to sell you my course on making a course. Ugh. Nope, I'm here to offer you the practical support you need right now, so you can get moving.

I think its a massive waste of your talent to reinvent the wheel and stand alone trying to build all the admin support you need.

Its a passion of mine to organize support teams to help creatives like you bring your positive message to those who will benefit. Its a talent of mine to help you design the best online experience, one that stands out in the cacophony of zoom calls and coaching group cul de sacs.

Plus, I'm a do-gooder and its just my thing to serve uplifting causes.

So I built this powerful education platform and hired a badass team to support teachers just like you. We used to offer highly curated cohesive personal transformation curriculum exclusively. We have served over 3000 participants through in-depth programs with more than 95% completion/participation rate (industry standard is 15%). I have also helped to launch highly successful teaching careers: measured by growth, exposure, impact, and income. (There are more important criteria than six figures sales translated to empty results, but we have six figures too).

In response to the Global crisis, we are throwing off the limits of our previous exclusive brand to help you NOW, offering what no one else is.

If you are ready to get to teaching and put down the prep and admin work, check out what we have to offer and fill out the application.

 I will personally contact you to schedule a 30 minute consultation to see how TRU can best support your needs, big or small. If we are not a good fit, I will offer you solid advice for what platforms and strategies are better suited for your goals so you can succeed, at no charge. 

Why would I do that? No, not because Im trying to rope you into my coaching gig, Ugh, again. Because this feels like the best way I can show up right now in these crazy times, to offer what I do best for the benefit of all, you included.

I want you to do Well while doing Good. That helps everyone.

Looking forward to hearing about your creative ideas!

~Cristina Star, TRU Founder & Director

PS. This stuff is not rocket science, but I can do that also 😉

"Cristina Star gave me crucial early support as a creator and instructor of sacred art.

She invested hundreds hours to encourage me to teach, and to produce and promote those classes. Not simply because of potential economic return, but because she felt that the issues I could address would be of benefit to the student body she nurtured, and to the larger Modern Postural Yoga community world-wide.

She was right. Much of the curriculum I created for those workshops was edited to form the foundation of my books, and resulted in the workshops I now lead online and internationally.

She saw my potential as an art instructor before I myself did, and helped me dramatically improve my teaching skills.

She did this for several other instructors who are now well-known and uplifting tens of thousands of students."
