  • Hey Shane. Just wondering if this course still works for the new version of Thrive Apprentice? Anything we need to keep in mind? ????

    • Everything still works the same, yes. We have more integrations available, that customers have asked us for (like ThriveCart and WooCommerce).
      Regarding the design options in Thrive Apprentice, my advice is to keep it simple at first. Use a template and get a course launched. Tweaking smaller details is something I’d only get into for my second and third courses.

    • Hi Anna,

      The course has been updated to reflect the new Apprentice. However most of the course is about how to create the actual course which is independent from the tech setup.

      • Hello Hanne,
        My website is built on thrive theme builder. I began setting up a landing page for my course using the online course template. I have 2 courses and plan to add others. Should I have one page that is all about my courses and have links from that page to a different landing page for each course? Getting a little confused with how the whole sales funnel works. Thanks in advance for your help, I appreciate it.

  • I’m so excited about this course … I’ve been waiting a long time for it to open again.
    Shane, I’m a super fan of you. I’m going to make a shirt that says “I love Shane”

  • Thanks for putting this together, Shane… I’m blown away by how well you cover all of the bits and pieces required from the lighting to the audio and the course map, etc… This whole courses gold

    • just purchased using your affiliate link because i trust you and shane appears to be a straight shooter. i’m hoping this helps me to finally get my courses out of my head and into the market where they can help folks.

    • Thank you, Miles! I appreciate that you took the time to give some encouraging feedback like this. 🙂

    • I’m here because of you, Miles! Looking forward to diving in. Thanks for the recommendation! ????????

    • Shane & Miles

      This course couldn’t have come at a better time. We have just beta tested our live course with great success and decided, because of CourseCraft, to concentrate on building the online course for our launch in the fall. We’re excited to dive in on the details and get everything ready for the official launch in October.

      Miles… I love that you’ve decided to start the nomadic life. We also have an RV (21′ toy hauler trailer). Maybe we’ll see you out in the wilderness one day.

  • Hi Shane! I’ve been a customer of yours since your Hybrid Connect days. I’ve been waiting for you to reopen this course for a long time, and I’m so glad you did! 🙂

    • Priscilla, that’s amazing! Hybrid Connect feels like a lifetime ago. I’m honored and humbled that you’ve been along for so much of my journey. Many thanks.

  • Gracias Shane.

    Espere por este curso, bueno y funcional.

    Te saluda Francisco, desde San Miguel de Allende, México.

  • Hi Shane,

    I have waited for over a year for this course to open so I am excited to be taking the course.

    I like the way that you explain a concept in your YT videos and how the other courses are put together at Thrive University. Clear, concise and easy to follow.

    And of course, I am a huge fan of Thrive Themes. A set of powerful plug-ins that allow solopreneurs to market their skills and get on with being in business!



  • I just watched the overview video and WoW, I’m looking forward to the course. I love the way you structured everything Shane, thank you so much.

  • This is THE course I needed. From the tech stuff to the marketing launch, all covered. As a solopreneur, all your products are amazing. I’m just about to launch my first online course 🙂 Thanks!!!
