You’re ahead of the curve. An early bird. A trail blazer.
Because you know you're onto a killer idea. One that's going to transform your niche – and your business.
There's just one more step, though: you have to get this amazing idea out into the world: it has to be launched.
But at this point, you're sitting at a crossroads… because the world will crush your ideas if you let it. There are so many roadblocks that can get in the way (from ourselves and those around us!). There are so many online course launch ideas that we can be left confused and worried.
And the fear that failure might happen can keep us from launching with confidence.
Fortunately, there's a better way.

Eliminating Roadblocks and Launching Your New Idea
I think we have to face the reality:
Ideas do have a shelf life. We have to use them before they expire.
It's ok to admit that launching an idea is sometimes terrifying. Because the world will crush your ideas if you let it – with competition, uncertainty, and overwhelm.
For many of us, these roadblocks can really take a toll on our overall commitment and confidence in our ideas.
But all we have to do is take these natural, inevitable roadblocks… and start turning the tables:
1. Use Competition To Motivate You Into Action
Did you know that the presence of competition is a pretty good indication that you've chosen a niche with a sustainable audience?
After all, if there are others who are succeeding in your niche, it means that there are people who are willing to pay for the type of products and services that you offer.
So with a simple mindset shift, competition becomes an encouragement.
All you have to do is invest in your own personality and uniqueness to stand apart from the crowd!
2. Turn Uncertainty Into Curiosity
We experience uncertainty for so many reasons. But when it comes to launching a new idea, it's often because we're confronted with “too many” options.
(Or maybe it's because we aren't totally confident that other people will love our idea as much as we do!)
But we can change this uncertainty into an attitude of curiosity, where the phrase “too many options” is just replaced with a more positive “so many possibilities!”
If you haven't decided on a launching strategy yet, take the time to invest in learning the solid, proven processes that will help it succeed.
3. Let Go of Overwhelm By Embracing Your Sweet Spot
Overwhelm is a real thing. But when you set your foundation and know your path, you can also give yourself permission to invest in your sweet spot…
As entrepreneurs, we often end up stretching ourselves too thin.
It's hard to let go of the “I can do it!” mentality and exchange it for the realization that “I don't have to do it alone.”
When we give ourselves the freedom to invest in our own zone of genius, we open the doors to much easier, more profitable launches.
4. Find the Right Process For Your Ideas To Grow
One of the most crippling roadblocks is knowing that you have a great idea, but not knowing how to get it out into the world.
But here's the problem:
There are a multitude of “get rich fast” webinars and courses. They all claim to have found the magical “secret” formula for X,Y,Z. (“Learn how I made over a million dollars in one launch!”)
Sure, this advertising tactic (known as “Income Claim Marketing“) can really get us motivated…
But the problem is that these “get rich quick” schemes aren't always proven. Many are a one-hit-wonder… or only “work” with a particular audience.
Yes, you want to follow a process that's been successful.
But the most powerful processes are those that emphasize building a stable foundation. The ones that encourage you to have the right mindset AND build the right skills. The ones that tell you key things to look for… while still giving you the freedom to do it your way.
That's why Nathalie took the time to sit down and write out the fundamental process of taking an idea from seed to launch with The Idea Sanctuary.
It's a place where you can follow a process from start to finish with your own ideas, confident that the foundation will be solid enough for years of growth.
5. Make Space In Your Life For Your Ideas To Grow
There are so many little pieces to bringing your idea into the world – the right mindset, the right process, and the right idea… but until you actually make space in your life for it to happen, it's “just” going to be a great idea.
Obviously one way to make space is by taking time each day (or week) to devote to working on your new idea.
But another way is to have a designated space where you can start merging the creative side of ideation with the practical side of getting it all ready for the world.
… a designated space like The Idea Sanctuary Ideabook, Nathalie's latest creation.
The format of the Ideabook addresses the mindset shifts that have to take place, by empowering your to organize your thoughts and process. It's a beautiful journal (or workbook) that can house your ideas and bring them to a healthy fruition in a launch.
In other words, its purpose is to empower you to really make a difference in the world.
The Ideabook is finally available for preorder – so you can reserve your copy right here.
