Lydia Lee of Screw the Cubicle Interview
Founded by Lydia Lee, Screw the Cubicle notes on their site:
“People are happier when they do work that feels important to them. If you create your own project, whether it be a freelance business, a startup or a social enterprise, you can launch something that ties in with your values and plays to your strengths. And it can feel good. Really good.”
A post on the Teachable site notes:
As a cubicle escapee turned blogger, coach, and course creator, Lydia Lee used her freedom to explore the world, eventually “settling down” running her business from Bali.
Feeling stuck and uninspired in her 6-figure corporate job, Lydia said “screw it” and decided to become her own boss. After finding success as an entrepreneur she naturally transitioned to teaching others to do the same.
Lydia Lee says about her work and using Teachable:
Then as my business grew and as I expanded into the digital world, which I am in now, then I started teaching those parts, the strategic parts of how to turn your skills into a digital business.
My business grew with me as I grew as an entrepreneur as well. So then the small classes were kind of an experiment, like, can I do it? Can I do it with 15 people at a time rather than one on one?
And it worked.
It worked and it was way easier. I was repeating myself anyway with every client so this was a good community to do it with, and then what I loved about group classes is that you get the support and collaboration of other people that are in the space that you’re at.
So they were all kind of working together, which also made my job a lot easier. I fell in love with group coaching.
After that I partnered up with someone in Bali here and we did retreats for corporate escapees.
So people who want to come to Bali, learn about location independence, digital nomads, digital business. We ran seven retreats last year, which is a lot of life experiences.
But that also taught me a big thing, which is that I crave human connection, too. I don’t want to hide behind a laptop all the time.
I want some human connection. That was a great blend of digital stuff, virtual stuff, plus this retreat, physical thing where I get to meet people.
Then courses really came for me, where I started with Teachable, courses came for me pretty much late last year when I basically beta tested a group program live first, refined it, and then repackaged it and marketed it as a digital online self-guided course, which is now on Teachable that people can sign up for. …

Teachable Interview: Lewis Howes From Online Course to Book
Lewis Howes is a Lifestyle Entrepreneur, former professional athlete and author of the site, related book and personal development podcast The School of Greatness.
In this interview, he advises other entrepreneurs to “become great at webinars; create courses, and build an audience whichever way you can, whether through your email list or social media…”
What kind of course can be profitable?
More about the values of creating your own course(s) – a summary from the site:
Monetize your expertise
Maybe you’re a busy parent, student, or full-time employee with a skill, hobby, or passion project that you’d love to monetize…
Additional revenue streams
Perhaps you’re a podcaster, blogger, or social media influencer with an ever-increasing following and the desire to establish an additional revenue stream…
Teach what you love
Maybe you’re a teacher, coach or instructor hosting in-person classes, and you know you’ll forever be leaving money on the table unless you find a way to leverage…
Or perhaps you are looking for a way to increase your credibility and make an impact around the work you are currently doing.
“What really has clinched it for me, why I chose Teachable, and why I love it and will continue to do my online courses with Teachable, is the great support that they have.” CS Lakin cslakin.teachable.com
“I was struggling to get my course off the ground, but I discovered Teachable and it was so easy to set everything up, great support team, and overall an awesome experience.” Alan Perlman learn.uavcoach.com
“I went from creating small, inexpensive courses to large courses that resulted in 5-figure income months. This is the perfect solution for service-based entrepreneurs who want to scale their business.” Julie Stoian school.juliestoian.com
Another example of an entrepreneur who uses Teachable course development trainings, business support and platform:
Annapurna Living by actor and teacher Carrie-Anne Moss provides courses “designed to help you create the life you crave, find your voice, and keep steady without burning out.”
In this interview about developing her courses at Annapurna Living using the Teachable platform and training, Carrie-Anne Moss noted that before finding Teachable:
“I think the trickiest thing for someone like me – and there’s a lot of people like me that have something that they’re offering – it’s like how do you offer it?
“I couldn’t find the platform.
“I was originally doing these courses that I do in ten day email courses and I enjoyed that, it was great – but I really couldn’t figure out what container can hold this for me.”
She adds that it is so meaningful to share what you have to help others, “whether it’s something you teach on Teachable or it’s teaching in a school or making something – whatever it is you have to express, that’s so important.”
