|Whether you conduct online courses or workshops, there's something we fail to consider. It's called the Safe Zone.
If we just want to play Internet guru, we don't care if the clients can actually implement the information or not. But if we're keen to be real teachers, it's the ONLY thing we care about.
Find out how the safe zone helps clients to consume and apply your material. And that's what makes them come back for more.

I was unsafe in Paris
In 2010, I decided to go for a walk at 6am, except it was Paris, and my wife was fast asleep. I decided, well, I could go and explore Paris a little bit, and so I did. It was a nice place. It is a nice place.
It's full of people and markets and it was great. I walked for a couple of hours, and then I turned around and I found I was lost. I had taken some kind of road somewhere and I couldn't find my way back no matter what I tried. There I was in one of the most well-documented cities on the plant and I was feeling extremely unsafe.
There were all these people around me and they were speaking a different language, and I didn't even know how to get back to where I was supposed to be.

As usual, we're going to look at three things.
