My next guest, Greg Smith, had a very successful career in corporate law.

He started an online course to move away from corporate law to start a new chapter in his life, and this course had revenues that were much better than expected.

After getting phone calls from others to get advice on how they could also model their courses the same, Greg’s intuition seized on this opportunity to start Thinkific, which has now become one of the largest online course creation platforms.
