Course Description

You can live the dream. Imagine yourself waking up every Monday morning and every other morning with an eagerness to get to work. This can be you, once you learn how to harness your passions into a real business.

You don't have to have a career or a job filled with drudgery.

This course is for anyone who would like to become a professional expert. Specifically, if you are trying to earn money and make a living off of your intellectual capital, this course will teach you the steps you need to take in order to start. In a world swimming in facts and data, insight and expertise are increasingly valued and needed. Not everyone can become a rich and famous expert, but everyone can know the basic decisions that have to be made before it is even possible to become a highly paid expert. You can make money off of your passion and you can build a career based on expertise. This course shouldn't take more than a couple of hours to complete, but it will take much longer to have a successful career as an expert. This course isn't a get-rich-quick scheme, but it will give you a map for starting your career as an expert.
