SPI 219: How Meghan Telpner’s Culinary Nutrition Academy Makes You Rethink Traditional Online Courses

SPI 219: How Meghan Telpner’s Culinary Nutrition Academy Makes You Rethink Traditional Online Courses

By Pat Flynn on

Meet Meghan Telpner, founder of The Academy of Culinary Nutrition, an online certification program with a jaw-dropping 97 percent success rate. Meghan’s students are clamoring to pay top dollar for her nutrition certification course, and I’ve invited her here today to find out why.

Before creating her wildly successful online course, Meghan taught aspiring nutritionists out of her home, but meeting demand wasn’t easy. Transitioning to online meant she could reach a greater audience, generate more income, and enjoy more time to herself. That transition has paid off in a huge way: Not only is her course more successful than ever, but Meghan was also just ranked as one of the top 100 female entrepreneurs in Canada by PROFIT magazine!

Meghan’s course requires a serious investment from its students—financially, energetically, and mentally. Today, Meghan’s going to share exactly how she attracts students willing to make that investment, how she continues to grow her course, and the resources she uses to maintain it.

If you’ve got questions about generating income and building community with your online course, you’ve got to hear Meghan’s story.
