Emily Walker is someone I’ve known for the past year or so. She’s actually one of the mentors in our Scale Up Business Accelerator Program, and she is such a genius when it comes to creating courses and designing client experiences that leave your clients with tons of results, help them feel more confident and support them in achieving their goals.

I wanted to bring Emily on to talk about course creation and her own journey towards entrepreneurship. She’s someone who never actually expected to be a business owner, but she sort of fell into it and shares all of that in today’s episode.

So, if you’re looking to get a course out into the world, or make sure that your clients get even more results, or maybe you’re a new entrepreneur and you’re wondering how in the world you make this work, this is the episode for you.


  • Why you have to give yourself permission to pivot
  • Being the expert doesn’t mean you have to be the expert on everything
  • Why you should design your course around action instead of content
  • The power of grouping smaller bite-sized pieces of information
  • How a growth mindset helps you open up to constructive feedback
  • What happens when you attend live events like I Heart My Life Live


Emily Walker is a leader, learning designer, and workshop facilitator from beautiful Victoria, British Columbia. Emily is the Foundress of the Modern Leaders Collective, where she helps heart-centred entrepreneurs design amazing online programs so they can overcome the creation overwhelm, step into confidence and scale their business while delivering incredible results.

Working with a diverse range of clients, from life-changing business coaches to seven figure mindset queens, Emily combines her signature framework for designing learning with the tools for the necessary inner work so that you can say goodbye to low completion rates and hello to empowering transformation.

When she’s not leading workshops or new content for her community, Emily can be found hanging out in yoga pants with her two kitties and her partner, dreaming of their next trip to France.
