Greetings, SuperFriends! Today we are joined by Jacques Hopkins. Jacques worked as an engineer for eight years before quitting his job and turning his biggest hobby into a highly successful online piano course. Today, he supports his family with the passive income from his course, while teaching others to do the same. I wanted to talk to Jacques because I also have a side-passion for learning an instrument, multiple instruments actually. Most recently, I have learned the piano, and thus I wanted to talk to Jacques about the importance of learning an instrument, but also from the perspective of someone who transitioned and brought music into his life. I wanted him to share his insights with all of you as to why anyone and everyone can and should pick up a musical instrument. The conversation varied from how you can accelerate your learning of a specific instrument, the piano, to why music is important, why people should learn music, and how you don't have to be a musical person to learn an instrument. In the episode, we also talk about the massive misconceptions and ways that most people go about learning music. I enjoyed the episode, it's a short and sweet one, and I'm sure you'll enjoy it as well! -Jonathan Levi
Hey, everyone! Today, I am joined by Jacques Hopkins, founder of Piano in 21 Days. After years of piano lessons, Jacques realized that he could only play two songs no matter how much he practiced. Luckily, he soon learned a new approach that allowed him to play hit songs--in minutes. Jacques decided to teach his piano playing method online. He joins me today to share his course, how he struggled with sales, and the system that eventually helped him generate $40k per month. Enjoy! One of the biggest reasons that people don't succeed as an online course creator is they give up too easily. Episode Quotes “Learning piano doesn’t have to take years. It can be faster, more fun, and easier than you thought.” "It wasn't until I created an online course based on something that I love that I found success with my own online business." "With online courses, I’m having a direct impact on other people’s lives, and that’s been the biggest ‘why’ with what I’m doing today." "Not only do I need to be good in responding to people's struggle, I need to find a better way to help them." "We just have one life, why not make the most of it?"
