Are you ready to create and sell an online course for your business?

Another course platform???
Why would I get this one instead of Gurucan or Fresh LMS?

Also, it’s currently on sale with AppSumo for $39USD which is just like 2 months of Thinkific. Bargain.
My main reservation is
What if it crashed my site?
