    Supercharge your teaching game with the magic of visual frameworks with Rory Vaden If you have a digital course, and are an expert in what you teach (but struggle with actually teaching it), then one of the biggest pieces of advice I can give you is to take your content and put it into a framework.  What’s a framework, you ask?
