Re: Here it is, my latest.
My NEWEST project/product, is...
YOU. Yes Y O U
YOUR OWN UNIVERSITY
I am already working with people who have STORED value INSIDE their heads. And this isn't new to SowPubbers, it has been my refrain for nearly 20 years now.
But NOW. It is time. Universities are closing colleges, cutting their athletics and many students are getting less education than they paid for. And those liberal arts majors, who have the sinking feeling they've chosen the wrong studies for their future...
are enrolling in TRADE, technical, and PRACTICAL schools both online and off.
It is time to start YOUR OWN UNIVERSITY, like my GJA University of Real Life Practical Studies, and its COLLEGE OF MAKING MONEY.
Well, still fleshing out My University's name, suffice to say, it will be all about my actual life experiences and based in reality. What I and the people I've worked with have DONE.
WHAT have YOU done? Your answer contains information, experience, skills and knowledge other people are ready and willing to pay for.
I always loved Jim Straw's BUSINESS LYCEUM, School of Practical Arts and Sciences of Making Money.
Online learning is huge. But with the current crisis, many people are wondering if their studies are going to pan out, will they find good jobs?
And PROBABLY NOT is today's answer, which is why droves are looking to online ways to make money, to start a business, to seek shelter from the storm.
I know MANY of you SowPubbers, and some I've yelled and cajoled for years, to SHARE WHAT YOU KNOW.
See, there is value in your experience.
And with a plethora of TOOLS like LOOM, you can make a lesson on your cell phone and send it to your students. Let alone posting it at scores of places.
The picture is a WALL turned into a WHITE BOARD. Start writing on it, get started with your classes.
You got an idea? Heck, I'll buy your classroom for you. Takes about 5 minutes to hang (I cut mine in two, have a 42 by 34 inch Whiteboard, or as I prefer, an educational center.
Got a camera? On your phone, computer, tablet, or free standing...then you are ready to go, that is, if you have something to share.
IF you have value, knowledge which can help other people, and IF,
IF you have it organized
and formatted...then the sky is the limit.
Think of a University, their classes, are like short term MEMBERSHIP programs, they have their students pay by the semester...in advance of course, and then serve up the classes.
A 'typical' online monthly membership is 99 bux, and some guys have them pay for a YEAR in advance.
Imagine having only 100 students paying you that 99 a month? That is the recurring income. And with today's tech, there is no limit to the number you can have in
Y O U R U N I V E R S I T Y YOU Your Own University.
Not a breakthrough? Nothing new here? FAIR ENOUGH, carry on and continue to do what you are doing.
But this Covid-19 crisis has shaken the world. After just a few months, it has caused a ripple of negative waves which could last for years to come.
What worked yesterday, like traditional colleges and higher education, are changing.
Sure, you doctors, lawyers, and those needing advanced specialized knowledge, PLEASE, continue your studies.
But for 80% of the rest of us, we need the ways and means to support ourselves and loved ones, and the traditional way may be gone forever.
It isn't rocket surgery...TEACH other people what you KNOW.
That is my latest and greatest program. You don't even need me, and if you have a white board, you don't even need to spend the 15 bux.
So go forth and good luck.
If you are uncertain if you have something to offer, I am available to confer with you and maybe even consult with you on YOU, YOUR OWN UNIVERSITY
