Would you like to make money online, but fear you’d have to compromise your ethics or values?

Skip to the free teleclass + manifesto

There are a lot of courses out there that claim to teach you how to “make money online.” Some of them even have good advice… if you don’t mind treating people like sacks of cash ripe for the squeezing. Following those cold business plans leaves your tender heart feeling scraped raw, assaulted.

Business doesn’t have to be like that. You can create a business that’s both warm-hearted and profitable.

Imagine this:

You’re working hard and happily, knowing you’re being of service to others without collapsing.

You hang out your shingle and put a price tag on your work, feeling wholehearted about your offer to the world.

Your customers pay you, feeling valued and respected and cared for.

Your heart is overflowing with love and your bank account is overflowing with money.

This isn’t just a faery tale; it’s a true story. And One Perfect Dollar can help it come true for you.

One Perfect Dollar

One Perfect Dollar is a 30-day challenge in which you’ll learn how to create and sell one small thing online in a way that feels perfectly aligned with your heart. It’s an online training program specifically designed for sensitive, spiritual, ethical people.


Sign up below to receive a free teleclass recording about bridging the gap between your warm heart and cold cash. When you do, you’ll get:

  • The One Perfect Dollar teleclass recording
  • The Warm and Businesslike manifesto, about how our hearts can transform the world of business
  • additional articles each week on living a wild, crazy, meaningful life

Go ahead and sign up if that sounds good to you – and don’t worry, I won’t share your email address and you can unsubscribe at any time.

I hope these free resources help you find a way to do business that feels right in your heart! But before you go, I’d love to help you in a deeper, more personal way than is possible in a teleclass recording.

That’s where the One Perfect Dollar 30-day challenge comes in.

During the One Perfect Dollar 30-day challenge, you will:

  • create one small product or service suitable for selling online
  • offer that product or service for sale
  • be supported and coached through any doubts, fears, insecurities, or shifts that arise during the process

At the end of the One Perfect Dollar 30-day challenge, you will:

  • know how to create and sell your work online, from beginning to end
  • find a marketing style that feels right to you, so you can feel wholehearted about marketing
  • feel confident about selling your work online

You’ll get the most out of One Perfect Dollar if:

  • you’re curious about working for yourself, but afraid you “don’t have what it takes”
  • you’ve tried the “just do it” approach to business and it’s sucking your soul
  • you have mixed feelings about money
  • the only kind of “marketing” you’re familiar with is basically yelling at people until they buy something
  • …and there’s no way in hell you would ever do that.

Here’s how it works. (Dates, times, and logistics)

One Perfect Dollar is a 30-day challenge that takes place online and on the phone. (It’s actually a little longer than 30 days because you’ll have some postprocessing time at the end.)

Each week, we’ll meet once for 90 minutes. You’ll call in via phone or Skype.

During each class:

  • You’ll have a chance to ask questions or ask for help with something you’re having trouble with (30 minutes)
  • You’ll learn and integrate one key aspect of wholehearted, ethical online business (60 minutes)
  • You’ll receive an assignment to work on before next class to help you put what you’ve learned into practice.

Class dates and times:

  • Tuesday, September 23, 6pm – 7:30pm Pacific / 9pm – 10:30pm Eastern
  • Tuesday, September 30, 6pm – 7:30pm Pacific / 9pm – 10:30pm Eastern
  • Tuesday, October 7, 6pm – 7:30pm Pacific / 9pm – 10:30pm Eastern
  • Tuesday, October 14, 6pm – 7:30pm Pacific / 9pm – 10:30pm Eastern
  • (skip a week)
  • Tuesday, October 28, 6pm – 7:30pm Pacific / 9pm – 10:30pm Eastern

Here’s a handy time zone converter in case you’re in another time zone.

And if you aren’t able to come to class at those times, no worries – you can listen to the recording and ask questions online.

Coaching Circle

In between classes or while working on the assignments, you may get stuck. You may encounter resistance. Or you may simply get confused and have a question.

Between each class, there’s a 60-minute Coaching Circle where you can bring your questions, challenges, or stuckness. I’ll listen to you and give you guidance and support.

Coaching circle dates and times:

  • Thursday, September 25, 6pm – 7pm Pacific / 9pm – 10pm Eastern
  • Thursday, October 2, 6pm – 7pm Pacific / 9pm – 10pm Eastern
  • Thursday, October 9, 6pm – 7pm Pacific / 9pm – 10pm Eastern
  • Thursday, October 16, 6pm – 7pm Pacific / 9pm – 10pm Eastern

If you aren’t able to come to the Coaching Circles at those times, the recordings can still be very helpful – there’s often a lot of overlap between what you’re struggling with and what comes up in the circle!

Here’s what you’ll learn each week.

Class 1: How to create one small product or service that people will buy

In Class 1 you’ll learn a step-by-step framework to create one small product or one small service that can be delivered online.

If you’re starting from absolutely nothing and have no clue about what to do or how to get started, this framework will help you come up with one small idea. If you already have an idea or two, this framework will help you narrow it down and refine it.

As your assignment for Class 1, you’ll begin working through the step-by-step framework to create a small product or service of your very own.

Class 2: One Perfect Product

As you work through the process of creating your very own product or service, you’ll likely encounter doubts or fears. They might sound like one of these:

  • “I don’t have anything of value to contribute to the world.”
  • “It’s already been done before, so why bother?”
  • “It would be more ethical to just give it away for free.”
  • “It would be more ethical to be a nonprofit instead of making money for myself.”
  • “I’m not an expert, so I’m not qualified to teach anyone anything.”

In Class 2, we’ll talk about the truth behind these stories so that you can feel wholehearted about the small product or service you’re creating. The product itself doesn’t have to be perfect (far from it), but you’ll create something that feels perfectly aligned with your heart.

Class 3: How to offer your small product or service to the world

I’ve set up an online marketplace especially for One Perfect Dollar students, so that you don’t need your own website. You’ll learn:

  • how to use it
  • how to receive payments online
  • how to present your product or service in a way that makes sense to people
  • what you can do after class ends to continue offering your small product or service to the world

The assignment for Class 3 will be to begin setting up your virtual booth in the One Perfect Dollar online marketplace. Using what you learned in class, you’ll create a title for your product or service, write a brief description, and set up a button for people to pay you.

Class 4: One Perfect Offer

As you work through the process of presenting your offer to the world, you’ll likely encounter internal resistance. It might sound like one of these:

  • “Asking people to buy something I’ve created is manipulative and wrong.”
  • “Presenting my offer in the best possible light is basically lying.”
  • “Marketing is slimy, and I don’t want to be slimy, so I can’t market my offer.”

In Class 4, you’ll learn the truth about marketing. We’ll talk about what really is slimy and how you can be sure to avoid it, and how you can present your offer effectively while still feeling perfectly aligned with your heart.

The One Perfect Dollar sale

In between Class 4 and Class 5, there will be a sale where people can buy what you’ve created and offered! (That’s why there’s a week-long gap at this point in the class schedule.)

You’ll have a virtual booth at the One Perfect Dollar online marketplace, where your offer will be on sale for one dollar. I’ll invite the public to drop by, take a look at what you’ve got for sale, and buy it.

Class 5: The wholehearted business spiral

In Class 5, you’ll get to decompress and postprocess whatever happened for you during the sale. You can share whatever came up for you: emotional, practical, or both. Then, we’ll discuss the question “What’s next for you?” and I’ll share some resources, recommendations, and guidance.

The One Perfect Dollar Community

When trying something new, it can feel like you’re the only one, like you’re all alone. That’s why you’ll have an online group just for One Perfect Dollar students, where you can connect with the other people like you who are also going through the 30-day challenge. You can get to know each other and support each other.

Your assignments each week will also include partnering: you’ll connect with one other student each week to discuss specific questions and topics, share your experiences, and support each other.

Investing in One Perfect Dollar

How else would you get the experience of creating and selling one small thing in a way that feels perfectly aligned with your heart?

There are two popular “make money online” courses that cost about $2,000 each – and they don’t cater to sensitive, warm-hearted people, and they don’t include any personal coaching.

I’m confident that One Perfect Dollar – 5 live teleclasses, the coaching circles in between, a supportive community, plus the experience of actually creating and selling one small thing – will help you at least as much as that “make money online” course. And I’m happy to offer it to you for just two payments of $97.

About the Teacher

Oh, but I haven’t introduced myself yet!

Hi! I’m Pace Smith. I help sensitive spiritual misfits follow their hearts to a wild crazy meaningful life. I’m a Pathfinding coach, a teacher, a speaker, a writer, a bi poly trans gamer geek, an open-source Reiki healer, and a tournament-level Dance Dance Revolution player.

I dyed my hair purple the day I quit my day job, and I love it every single day, even (especially?) after the purple has faded to pink.

My Story

The first time I made one perfect dollar was in 2007, when I taught my first workshop on communication and relationships to a small paying audience.

My heart felt so full of love that day that I could no longer ignore it. Even though I only received a tiny amount of money, I had truly helped people who were happy to pay me.

I knew I wanted to do more of this work, but I had to learn how first. To grow my business, I had to learn how to do business without sacrificing authenticity, ethics, or love. In other words, I had to learn how to make all my dollars into perfect dollars.

I studied, I experimented, I practiced. I coached, taught, wrote, presented, and blogged my heart out. I succeeded enough to keep me going, I failed enough to keep me humble, and I learned enough to allow me to be of service to others. I succeeded in growing my business and I quit my day job.

Now I’m turning around and teaching you what I’ve learned on my journey, starting with the first step – that one perfect dollar.


But it’s not just me who’s got your back. Three amazing humans who know a lot about money, business, and stuckness have also contributed their support and wisdom to help you in this 30-day challenge.

Bonus #1: Blue Morpho by Fabeku Fatunmise

Fabeku Fatunmise

Fabeku Fatunmise is an amazing business awesomizer + sonic alchemist. He’s spent 20 years studying music and shamanism, and now he’s translating that music and magick into the world of business.

As part of One Perfect Dollar, you’ll receive the Blue Morpho track from Fabeku’s Remembering Through Resonance CD.

This 19-minute cascade of singing bowls will help you get clear and creative as you set out on your journey.

One of your assignments for the course will be to set aside nineteen minutes to listen to this and let it work its mojo on you, peeling away the layers that are keeping you from being and expressing who you truly are.

Plus, you get to hang on to the track even after the course is over, so you can listen to it whenever you need to shift some stagnation.

Bonus #2: Saddling Your Money Hen with Luna Jaffe

Luna Jaffe, CFP, MA, is the author of the first beautiful book about money: Wild Money: A Creative Journey to Financial Wisdom. She’s the founder of Lunaria Financial Ltd., a financial advisory firm where she integrates creativity into financial planning, drawing on her experience as a visual artist, entrepreneur, and therapist.

In this interview, she’ll guide you through a creative, visual way of experiencing your relationship with money in a new way. You’ll bring what’s unconscious up into your consciousness. The process is magical and will also give you clear, practical guidance!

Bonus #3: Flying Above Your Money Ceilings with Bari Tessler

Bari Tessler Linden, MA, is a Financial Therapist, Mentor Coach and Mama-preneur. She has guided thousands of people to new, empowered, and refreshingly honest relationships with money through her nurturing, body-centered approach. She earned a Masters in Somatic Psychology from Naropa University and worked in body-centered therapy for over a decade before unexpectedly falling in love with bookkeeping systems and money work.

In this interview, she’ll give you a taste of her gentle money healing. She’ll share the story of how she created a money ceiling because of her spiritual path, and how she flew above it. And most importantly, she’ll show you how your body can help you fly above your own self-imposed money ceilings.

All this just so I can make one measly dollar?

No. All this so you can make one perfect dollar.

If you just want to make money, there are plenty of other courses you can take.

If you want to make money in an authentic way that feels perfectly aligned with your heart, in a way that feels like you’re truly being of service instead of sales-y and full of hype, then this course is a good place to start.

And once you can make one perfect dollar, it’s soooooo much easier to make the second perfect dollar. Then a hundred, then a thousand, then more.

I know that this is a radical approach in a “get rich quick” society. But I’ve seen so many sensitive souls suffer because they tried to skip straight to making a thousand dollars, no matter what the cost to their hearts. I don’t want you to fall down into that pit. Building a business requires persistence and patience, and the first step is making one perfect dollar.

What if I already have business experience? Will this course help me?

Yes – even if you’ve already made a bunch of dollars that didn’t feel perfect to your heart, you can still experience what it feels like to make one perfect dollar. If you’re already an experienced entrepreneur, expect to get a review of the basics from a fresh, heart-centered perspective.

How much can I really accomplish in a 30-day challenge?

I’ve worked with a lot of entrepreneurs who are just getting started, and the most common mistake I’ve seen them make is that they wait too long to test their ideas. They dream big dreams, then talk themselves out of them, going around and around in a circle. Finally, they work up the nerve to try, and they pin all their hopes (and sometimes, a bunch of money!) on one big idea. Then, if it doesn’t work out the first time, they give up, demoralized forever.

You can learn a lot more in a 30-day challenge where you actually deliver one small thing than from an entire year of thinking about it and talking about it.

That’s why I’ve created the One Perfect Dollar challenge. It’s an opportunity for you to dip your toe into the water of online business and really experience what it feels like to make money in a way that feels right to your heart.

Give it a try. See what happens. Notice how it feels in your heart and in your body – and in your wallet.

I’m confident that you’ll have a far clearer idea of what’s right for you after 30 days – and that you’ll feel wholehearted and empowered.

My promise to you

If you aren’t satisfied with the course, you get your money back with no hassle. It’s as simple as that.
