Discoco’s mission is to demystify and declutter the world of personal development.
Alongside an edit of courses we love from creators we trust, we bring tips, tools and life-enhancing reads to inform, inspire and engage you.
Or, the non sales spiel version: we shout about great courses, ignore rubbish ones, and write some fun articles for anyone interested in, well, themselves.
But who are we?
Isabel Mohan (right) is an award winning journalist, editorial consultant and founding Head of Content at two brilliant start-ups.
Lucy Cleveley (left) is a business psychologist, coach and learning and development consultant.
Back in 2019, we collaborated on an online confidence course for the social app Mush. Since the users said lots of nice things about us (“warm and relatable”, apparently. Thanks mum), it inspired us to think about other ways we could join forces and call it work.
18 months and countless late night walks later, Discoco was born out of a shared mission to demystify (Lucy) and de-bullshit (Isabel) the world of online personal development. We had both noticed that everybody seemed to be making courses, but it was hard to find anywhere that was independently curating them and making the world around them as fun and accessible as it deserves to be.
With one of us immersed in the learning and development industry and the other a pro at building online communities through great content, we realised our distinct expertise made us the perfect team to connect great experts with a mainstream lifestyle audience.
We both knew from a few transformative encounters of our own that great online courses, coaches, consultants and the many other players in the self-development game can truly help people feel happier, more fulfilled and more successful – or just get a boost from learning something new. And with the pandemic scuppering so many plans – whether they were for a new job, a big move or a much-needed fringe trim – that’s a feeling we all really need right now.
After spending a year hunched over laptops in cramped bedrooms or juggling family life with work in previously unimaginable circumstances, people of all ages and stages are feeling battered and desperately in need of a pick-me-up from a trusted source that won’t leave them out of pocket and out of ideas.
With all this in mind, we’ve built Discoco to cut through the overwhelm and highlight the most genuinely life-enhancing online courses from the best creators – not just the ones with the most Instagram followers. Supported by fun, engaging and useful lifestyle content unashamedly focused on you, we’re determined to open up premium expert insight to everyone craving both information and inspiration.
Oh, and why Discoco? Because “disco” is Latin for learn, don’t you know (we didn’t). And we like dancing.
