Podcast: Ali Abdaal on Running a $1M Online Course

Joining me this week for another one of our special live audience episodes is Ali Abdaal. Ali is a second-time guest on the show. In our first conversation – Episode 13 – we talked more about his journey from medical student at Cambridge, to YouTube celebrity where he now has close to 2 million subscribers on his YouTube channel.

In this episode, we do a deep dive into an online course which Ali now generates over a million dollars a year from teaching. The Part-Time Youtuber Academy is an absolute masterpiece of an online course. His cohorts sell out in hours. But originally, Ali didn’t even want to do a cohort-based course. In this conversation, we explore what motivated him to get started, what he learned from doing his first two cohorts, and what he was most excited about ahead of the launch of his third cohort.

There are tons of lessons here not only for course creators, but also for business owners on scaling your business, hiring, working with teams, designing operating procedures, and providing value to customers.

So please enjoy my second conversation with Ali Abdaal.
