To serve your clients

you need to be a great coach..

But to scale your business

you need to learn how to TEACH.

your teaching skills matter when...

It seems overwhelming...

It’s okay to be confused about a process you’ve never been taught.

You’re in the right place. 

let me introduce

your ticket from procrastination to profit....

Six Hour Syllabus

& enrollment is open now!

Let's get clear:

this is a self-paced course

It will take you less than 6 hours to go through, from start to finish. (If you're a course purchaser but not a course finisher, don't worry... this was designed for you).

that teaches you educational psychology

From student engagement strategies to scaffolding information, this course covers PhD level concepts YOU need to know... but at an 8th grade reading level.

& you'll walk away with a plan

This is not a course where I just GIVE you information. You'll use my "Ultimate Course Builder" tool to actually PLAN your course or curriculum as you go.

"Okay, but I've bought SO many courses on business and haven't used them..."

Yes, my friend. 

You and the rest of everyone who has ever purchased a course online. 

In fact, the AVERAGE online course completion rate is about 15%.

You know what causes that problem? 
It’s not you, your focus, or your willpower. 


It’s courses that don’t leverage the science of student engagement. 
It’s design that prioritizes the instructor’s knowledge over the learner’s results. 

Most online courses are built by people 
who don’t have any background in curriculum design

so they end up feeling like a workout plan 
designed by someone WITHOUT a personal training certificate. 

That’s the problem we’re trying to SOLVE. 


I knew I had valuable skills and information to teach, but I didn’t know how to reach people in an engaging way that would help them know, understand, and do the tasks at hand. 

With Karin’s easy-to-follow curriculum, I was able to create learning materials that could reach and teach all of my learners, allowing them to take in information, practice what they learned, and repeat the process as many times as desired.

SHS helped me organize, plan, and simplify, all while bettering my course materials and delivery.

Maybe you’ve created a course or group already, maybe not. Either way, I’m guessing you are here because you’re in total confusion about what makes a course great. Luckily, science is on your side. Six Hour Syllabus uses decades of research on learning, retention, and engagement – packaged in an easy-to-follow, step-by-step process you’ll keep using forever.

You’ve got overwhelm, I’ve got structure.

Building a course feels like a massive undertaking. Whether you’re a full-time biz owner, or still working that day job – I can almost guarantee that your procrastination is coming from not having a clear and simple plan. Six Hour Syllabus isn’t just a course – it’s a full workshop where you’ll DO the process of course design during each module. Bye bye procrastination, hello strategic action!

You’ve got inspiration, I’ve got a way to make it happen.

I’m not going to make any decisions for you in this course. YOU are the CEO of this business, after all. It’s your vision, and your instincts that matter. Six Hour Syllabus is here to provide you with rubrics, resources, and support to make those tricky course decisions – so you can feel confident and clear about what you’re creating, and why you built it that way.

"I knew I was sitting on a brilliant course idea but I was totally overwhelmed and stuck on where to start."

In the past, I’ve spent money on courses that, from a learning perspective, weren’t great fits for me (ie: boring, hard to absorb, or difficult to apply)… and I rarely completed them. I wanted my course to be different – to be fun, stupid helpful, and to literally change lives. This is what Six Hour Syllabus helped me create. Karin is an expert, like a literal doctor, in curriculum design. I have the perfect foundation (that I can use repeatedly!) for my course and I know EXACTLY what to do. I also know it will get results for my clients. If you’re on the fence about purchasing it, let this be the permission you need. You won’t regret it, and neither will any of the people who take your future-course. Thanks, Karin!

Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely. The Six Hour Syllabus can be used to create curriculum for ANY educational material (freebie, 1:1, group program, challenge, etc). Here’s what one of our graduates had to say about that experience: “I realized that I had never really defined a clear tangible outcome (I see very different clients, with different needs). I expected my clients to understand and implement right away. And with all the resources provided, it’s going to be very helpful to work on the PRACTICE portion more, and I know that’s going to help my clients a lot.”

Nope! Six Hour Syllabus is self-led and there is no feedback given. There are quizzes at the end of each module to help you check your knowledge, and the BEST feedback givers will actually be your STUDENTS – which is why we have a bonus module that teaches you how to “beta launch” your course.

Nope! Six Hour Syllabus is a completely self-led course and you have lifetime access. That means you can buy it and wait to work on it, buy it and work on it for a while and then come back, etc. I consistently have SHS graduates tell me they return to the modules and Ultimate Course Builder anytime they build curriculum!

No. I want to be very clear that this course takes you through the PLANNING process for a course. You’ll have a crystal-clear roadmap for how to get to “course is done.” You’ll know what to put in each module, what resources need to be created to scaffold learning, and you’ll even know how long those things will take YOU to complete. Then, it’s up to you to follow the plan. There isn’t any possible way someone can create all the materials for a good quality course in six hours.

There are two ways to work with Karin directly. First, you can enroll in our Spring 2024 round of Twelve Week Takeoff, a live group program that helps you launch your course (where you’ll get weekly group coaching calls with Karin). 

Or, you can sign up for a 1:1 strategy session (when available). 


Karin’s teaching style makes it SO easy to learn all of the concepts around great course design because she keeps it fun and keeps you engaged the entire time. And the way she’s structured this course makes building out your own course framework effortless.

In six hours, I’ve gotten more clarity on what I want to teach my clients and how I want to present the information that I have in the last 3 months working on this material by myself.
