Great post – thank you :) I’m in the process of building my first website-based online course using Optimize Press – steep learning curve but I’m up for the challenge! The only membership site I personally use is Brian Johnson’s philosopher’s notes. He is a stunning example of focus and achievement – his content production rate is crazy and he offers something for every type of learner plus lots of free stuff – truly inspiring :) You can have a nose here: http://bit.ly/1POj5Ag
Ever heard the saying, “If you fail to plan, then you’re planning to fail?” That saying definitely applies to running a membership site, which is why you’ll want to plan out your content creation and delivery calendar at least six to twelve months ahead of time. Fortunately, you can make the whole process a lot easier by using this content calendar checklist!

Thanks so much for reading and for your kind words! I am unable to give legal, tax or financial advice so can’t speak to your specific situation. However, insurance is generally something that is taken care of in the beginning stages of the business being formed. We always recommend speaking with an attorney to determine if business insurance is something you should look into. I hope this information helps!


In professional diving, checklists are used in the preparation of equipment for a dive, and to ensure that the diver and life support systems are fully prepared before they enter the water. To a lesser extent, checklists are used by a minority of recreational divers, and by a larger proportion of technical divers during pre-dive checks. Studies have shown checklists to be effective at reducing the number of errors and consequent incidents.
