For twenty years, I have Banked My Knowledge. I can help you do the same.
When asked how I got started, I often joke that I started my business on faith, adrenaline, and caffeine. (They are all still in use today.) But truthfully, being self-employed was always assumed in my family. An entrepreneurial spirit runs throughout my family as both my grandfathers, my father, my brother and my sister are all self-employed.
Before Harvard, I started with nothing and built an Expert Information business. I sold my Information Courses to Fortune 500 companies and spoke to thousands as a top-rated motivational speaker at conferences. I helped M&M Mars and Garoto Candy with their marketing. (I played a small part in the marketing process of creating the little M&M people campaign.) Today, with unparalleled opportunity in the Knowledge Economy, I help Knowledge Entrepreneurs create, market, and profit from online courses.
I have a degree from Harvard in education and psychology, so I know to teach you to teach. I have two other degrees as well: one is in speech, and the other is in communications. As a Knowledge Entrepreneur, I have always had one foot in business (being an entrepreneur) and one foot in academia (teaching college). This unique perspective has always helped me stay current, synergize, and apply research studies into the market place. Research. Apply. Research. Apply. It has been a perfect marriage between theory and practice and puts a Unique Stamp on my information courses and speeches.
That’s all the “hot dog” stuff. But a few years ago, I was filming a pilot for a TV show on entrepreneurship and, as a pedestrian going into a mall, was hit by a driver texting. I slept for a year, while my body and brain rebuilt itself.
It was during this time that I felt an overwhelming desire to make what I knew count for others. There’s nothing like having all the degrees and business accolades stripped away to realize what is important in life. My faith has always been foundational to my life, and now, it has become even more so.
Winston Churchill said, “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” Before the accident, I was writing my book, “Bank Your Knowledge,” and I got so excited in the middle of my research because I realized the potential of the Knowledge Economy. It affords everyone the opportunity to now make a living AND a life by sharing what you know with others. The difficulty of the last few years have simply refined my focus, renewed my commitment, and deepened my passion and energy to make a difference where I can.
I can show you how to develop your Expert status through speaking, writing, and educating. I can show you how to find a niche you love that fits your personality, your values, and your needs. I can show you how to build a successful business that gives you lifestyle freedom, global opportunities for wealth, and the ability to impact others and change the world.
I am here to make a difference in your life so you can make a difference in others’ lives. Let’s pay it forward together.
