Leveraged Learning – How the Disruption of Education Helps Lifelong Learners and Experts with Something to Teach

hard-cover-book-10

Most people think the problem with college is the cost of tuition and an overflow of graduates into the workforce.

Those are problems, but that’s only half the story.

The real problem, as the former president of Harvard, Lawrence Summers admits: “Anything you learn is going to become obsolete within a decade.”

That’s why education is facing a major disruption, and where the opportunity for experts comes in.

As my friend Danny Iny points out in his new book, Leveraged Learning (which is FREE to read online in its entirety right here), the future of education will focus on lifelong learning.

It’s the only way to stay up to date in our changing world.

People are now learning more often, and in spurts, to fill holes in their skillset as needed. They’re choosing to learn just enough, at just the right time, and they spread their learning over the course of a lifetime instead of condensing it into the college experience.

However, mainstream education hasn’t yet caught up to that shift.

There’s a huge gap between what people want and what our education system offers.

So experts and professionals are being called upon to fill the gaps.

Experts are teaching office workers how to use new software and technologies (fast)…

…developers how to work with new code…

…managers how to interact with a changing workforce…

…marketers how to use new platforms.

And it goes beyond the professional world. People are turning to online education for their personal needs too:

Exerts are teaching new homeowners how to do modern decorations on a budget…

…fitness enthusiasts how to follow the latest and most effective exercise and diet trends…

…parents how to connect with their pop-culture obsessed kids…

…travelers how to get the most out of their trip.

At Kodiak Mountain Stone we teach the do-it-yourselfer’s how to install their own manufactured stone veneer!

People are thirsty to learn specific skills that fill specific needs. And they want results – soothing higher education typically doesn’t provide.

So if you’re an expert with something to teach, you have a massive business opportunity sitting right in front of you to create training programs that get people results.

And you’ll definitely want to go read Danny’s book (available FREE online, right now). He covers just how big the opportunity is…

…and how to strike while the iron’s hot!

Create Your Own Path

A few days ago we were recording and Entrepreneur Next Door podcast with Steve Christensen from Novo Watch. I had asked him a question about his entrepreneurial journey and he made the comment that from a young age he wanted to create his own path.

Whether you are an entrepreneur or are working for someone else, I think that this is something great that everyone should aspire for. Use your skills and talents to create the path that you want to take. Life is way too short to be doing things that you don’t want to be doing. Figure out what it is that you want and create the path to get there.
As an employer, I know that these are the types of employees that I would like to have working with me. Those that know what they want and are working to make it happen. If that means for them to get to where they want to end up my company is only a stepping stone and they will eventually have to move on, I will fully support that. Of course I would never want to lose a great employee. But I’d rather have someone that is great and ends up moving on because of their personal goals and aspirations that did great things with us while we were together than have a life-long employee without any drive that is just showing up each day to punch the clock and get through the day.
What path are you on? Comment below.
Good luck!
