All of the Things
As you looked into building a course, you realized there is a LOT to learn.

Building curriculum, picking a learning management system, standing up the site (so many pages), building courses, processing enrollments, certificates, rosters, collecting funds, developing course launch plans, creating groups, progress reports, calculating and processing payments to revenue share partners and affiliates, and more (there's always something, right?).

The Common Mistakes

I've watched entrepreneurs go it alone, and the result is often less-than-desirable and far more costly: delayed launches, substandard sites, customer dissatisfaction, lost sales, time away from the main business, and the inevitable burn-out from putting the heart in the right place but trying to do too much.

You need help building a course but hiring a consultant is out of the question.

You don't have spare time to spend "figuring it out" and it's super risky considering all of the tech, tasks, and competition.
