The Difference Between Workshop, Webinar, Training and Masterclass

Alright, I’m sure you’ve seen this all over the place.

Different entrepreneurs have different names for all of their trainings.


What do they mean?

And what’s the difference between them?

I mean when you sign up for them, they are all so similar, aren’t they?

You get some sort of training video and sometimes people sell to you at the end.

Sometimes they’re free. Sometimes you have to pull out your credit card.

Sometimes they are professional with beautifully branded slides. Sometimes someone is just speaking to you from their bed.

So you would think that maybe that’s the reason they are called a bunch of different things, wouldn’t you?

But that’s not always the case.

Here’s the thing...

Sometimes people call something a webinar because that’s what their coach told them to do or that’s what their favorite online entrepreneur is calling them right now.

Other times, it depends on what keywords are working well. Maybe “masterclass” sounds better than “workshop” so people will overuse that term for a few months until it’s no longer a buzzword. 

Or maybe Facebook ads seem to charge more when you want “webinar” sign-ups as opposed to getting people on a “free training”.

It all depends.

But at the end of the day, what’s most important is figuring out what YOU should do in your business, right?

Because not only are you trying to figure out what to name your new creation, you’re also wondering whether you should give it away for free or whether you should charge your people for it.

That’s why you’re in luck because that is what I will be covering in my newest video, The Difference Between Workshop, Webinar, Training and Masterclass.

10 Things to Know Before You Become an Entrepreneur

10 things to Know Before You Become an Entrepreneur

By Dr. Tracy Timberlake

So you’ve been thinking about doing the whole entrepreneur thing.

I get it.

It’s really enticing, isn’t it?

You see other people bragging on their social media about how much money they make and how they are their own bosses (aka how they don’t have to answer to anyone else or be micromanaged all day, every day.

There are so many things that might attract you to entrepreneurship.

It might be the fact that you can take vacations days whenever you feel like it, sleep in until noon because you know you don’t have to work on anyone else’s timelines or maybe it’s the fact that you can run to pick up your kids from their piano recital in the middle of a work day without having to beg and plead to take your lunch break at a later time. Time freedom and freedom of schedule is one of the biggest benefits of being an entrepreneur.

Or maybe entrepreneurship is calling your name because you don’t want to wait until you’re 65 to see the world. You want to travel to every corner of the earth, tasting delicious food, learning about new cultures and making connections with amazing people.

For some people, it almost seems like a calling… like something they have to do.

Whatever your reason may be for leaving your 9-5 and starting the entrepreneur life, there are a few key things you should know before you get started.

I wanted to put this list together for you because although it may seem like all fun and games from what you may see on social media, I don’t want you to be fooled – most people will only show you their highlight reel.

So if you’re really going to commit to becoming an entrepreneur, I want to make sure you go into with both eyes open and armed with as much knowledge as you can get your hands on.

In my latest video, I am sharing 10 Things to Know Before You Become an Entrepreneur.

Now, this isn’t all of them. Everyone’s journey is going to be unique and you will only learn to navigate the joys and challenges of entrepreneurship once you dive right in.But for now, this is a pretty solid place to start!

Here’s a recap of what I will be covering in the video


Money is easy mindset is not, you cannot expect everyone to understand.


You have to participate.


Don’t underestimate the time it will take to reach your goals, but don’t over estimate either.


Learn to trust yourself.


Focus on money making activities first!


You decide the outcome. No one else.


It’s always about service. Not sales.


Presentation matters.


Set up your business systems so you’re not working 24 hours a day.


Get help.

Check it out and I’d love to know what you think!

#1 Content Strategy

You’re gonna wanna hit save on this one! #trustme

It’s a content strategy that people rarely ever talk about, but I learned this long ago – as a beauty #vlogger, it’s hasn’t failed me since. And I’m sharing.



Most people didn’t dive into this entrepreneurship thing to be social media managers. I don’t know anyone who has 18 hours a day to create endless captions, snap umpteen selfies, and post till their fingers pop off.⁣

So, what’s an entrepreneur to do?⁣


Let me give you an example – though, if you follow me, especially on multiple platforms, you have seen this a 💯 times.⁣


¬ upload a #youtube video.⁣

¬ share the link on LinkedIn, Facebook Group, Twitter, and Pinterest.⁣

¬ send an email to my VIP list with the link and a little explanation of the video, basically reasons to watch.⁣

¬ tweet out the link 3 more times within the first 48 hours.⁣

¬ create a 30-second trailer for Instagram post it, with captivating thumbnail.⁣

¬ edit a 15 second IG story, and add a swipe up to the video.⁣

¬ post that same 15-second story to Facebook stories and snap chat.⁣

¬ write a blog post for your website (embed YouTube video, it’s good for SEO backlinks).⁣

¬ in a day or two share the link to the blog on all social media platform.⁣

¬ if the video is inspirational, motivational or transformational, capture a quote, create a graphic and schedule it for 3 days after w/ CTA that leads to YT.⁣

¬ go out, live your life cuz you just took 1 piece of content and syndicated the heck out of it. Yay you.⁣

Will people see it multiple times? Maybe, but reach is like a <20% plus if it’s good, it’s good! And your people won’t mind (that’s my “make sure you create good stuff” clause 😉 lol⁣

Life Skills Building: Increasing Confidence in Achieving your Goal

Conversations with a 17 yr old about confidence and goals.

If you know anything about me, you know that I have a huge heart for the kids! I’ve actually been working with youth for almost 2 decades now! 🤯

Vivian Nolo and I were able to host a Life Skills Series with the Miami Dade Library system. We talked about goals. We went through some exercises to help them get some clarity and learn how to set them – even if they were only in middle and high school (we had a few college students too).

After the workshop, one of the 17-year-olds came up to me and said: “how do you find the confidence to have a goal.” Yea…that hits you hard doesn’t it? Such a great question.

  • First of all, the fact she recognized that goal setting does require a level of confidence.
  • Second, the self-awareness that that’s what she needed at the moment.

We talked. Turns out she has HUGE aspirations, but too scared to say them out loud, too afraid to believe in them… And in herself fo that matter. I gave her some things to think about, I am a coach after all. She hugged me after. We parted ways.

I hope she remembers that conversation. I hope she remembers that someone, somewhere believes in her dreams and wants her to achieve them.

I’ve done a lot of work with inner-city and underprivileged youth, so… This gave me a flashback. It’s been a while, but kids still struggle with the same things that grown-ups do.

Those kids grow up to be adults. And those adults end up being my clients. Sometimes all you need is someone to stand with you and say Yes!

Yes to the crazy dream. Yes to the vision. Yes to the goal. Yes to YOU!

So, if you need someone to say yes to that for you today… Then YES! I’m here. I’m with you. And I’m ready when you are.
