What is the format of the training?

How long are each episode?
Most episodes are between 10 to 20 minutes. A few are longer. There are three extended coaching sessions that are between 45 minutes to about an hour or so.
These episodes were originally in a free podcast. Why should I buy this?
It's true. Much of this content was available free in almost 40 episodes of the Digital Convergence Podcast. However, several listeners have asked me to separate the Video Business Success Coach segments into a separate product to make it easier to find and listen to. You can easily scan through the topics that interest you and listen to it without having to go through an entire episode of the Digital Convergence Podcast. I've also removed music and other extraneous stuff so that you can get right into the coaching session without delay. We also include several valuable bonuses: 1) You get a Kris Simmons' downloadable ebook The Six-Figure Videographer. This ebook has helped hundreds of video pros and digital media creatives to grow their business to six figure businesses. 2) You receive FREE over five hours of video recordings of previous Live Coaching calls conducted by Kris Simmons. Each of these calls contains practical tips to get the results in your business.
How may I get the most benefit from this course?
You can listen to the episodes all at once if you want to and in any order you wish. However, some have found it beneficial to go back and listen to one episode at the beginning of their work week. They jot down a few notes that they put into action in their business for that week. Imagine where your business will be in 37 weeks if you follow this pattern! Whatever approach you take, be sure to jot down a few notes from each lesson and without delay put those notes into action in your business.
What if I have a question about something that's mentioned in the coaching sessions?
Each episode has an it's own comments area that we monitor. If you have a question, please post it there. The nice thing about this is that not only do you benefit from it, so do others that may have a similar question. The comment area is not just for questions, though. If you have a positive experience from applying the lesson in your business, we want to hear about it!
How long is the course?
There are almost 12 hours of audio contained in the 37 episodes in this course. (11:40:38 to be exact). That's not counting the five plus hours of bonus content.
