Description

Are you already a successful entrepreneur or would you want to become one? Are you following traditional thinking and guidance about how to become ‘successful’ in your chosen subject area or are you looking for new and better ways to live your life and to do your business? 

Taken from a series of live lectures delivered by the author, the Course gets you to look differently at entrepreneurship that is fit for the 21st Century. Although full of insights for entrepreneurs working in big business, this course is especially relevant for the solopreneur and freelancer who want to take their business to the next ‘level’. The course is also full of insight for anyone thinking of starting their own business and wanting to become an entrepreneur.

Although we still need to continue with many of the business processes of the past which are (not covered here) it is important to take stock and consider how new thinking, new knowledge and new skills will enhance your business longevity, wellbeing and success. The course is not about the things that lead to short-term transient success, but is about the things you need to THINK about and take ACTION on, in order to achieve long-term meaningful 'success'.

Many of the ideas here are deliberately provocative and thought stimulating, so if you take the course, please chip in with your own thoughts, concepts and new thinking in the discussion thread!

The course comprises several live recorded talks that have been delivered to various professional/networking groups in the UK and the content includes:  

  • How Premature Organisation prevents Conception
  • A Four Quadrant model of Knowledge 
  • A ‘Cash Flow Quadrant’ especially relevant for Solopreneurs
  • A new approach to your 'Health Insurance'
  • Mind Mapping introduced as an important business skill
  • Expert Frame of Mind v the Learner Frame of Mind (and the fall of the expert)
  • The rise of the Millionaire Teachers
  • My FIVE Knowledges for Business Success
  • A different perspective about TIME (How much have you got?)
  • The importance of Sleep time, Downtime and Brain Time
Who is the target audience?
  • Entrepreneurs, Solopreneurs, SMEs, already successful in business and those that want to be
  • The ambitious professional: Maybe you’ve been in your industry for a while or you are just starting out, and you are ready to accelerate your career and start building for your future.
  • The determined entrepreneur: You are out on your own struggling with others in highly competitive niches and if you want to be truly successful, you need a slight edge. If you are an entrepreneur looking for a way to improve your overall effectiveness this course could be the answer
  • The creative artist: Perhaps you are an artist with a vision and need the mental space and creativity to make your dreams come true. Whether musician, painter, or dancer, optimising your knowledge and thinking skills is great for your personal improvement
  • The overworked employee: You may not love what you do for work and have plans to make a change in your life and this course will open up your thinking to give you a much larger ‘canvas’ in which to forge a possible new career
  • The university student: Education is important to you and getting good grades is your mission. (in which case my other course on Learning-toLearn and Mind Mapping will be very helpful). However you also need to look beyond your degree and widen your Knowledge about Knowledge to help you forge your future success and this course willer a ‘wake-up’ call
  • Business Commentators, Think Tanks, Economists
  • If you have ambition and appreciate that there maybe important knowledge that remains hidden from you that could be important for future business and personal success

1 Lecture 12:29

This is the recorded first draft of a talk that I was presenting at TEDx Canary Wharf. I've added slides to the audio to make it into a Udemy Video Lecture and also in the middle I've added a short video clip narrated by Morgan Freeman about the Default Brain Network. The talk covers three different models of the brain and looks at what the three models have in common. The lecture is relevant to all entrepreneurs especially those who'd like to contribute to improving our world.

Mind Mapping, Wellness, and Learning Coach at Udemy

I'm a speaker, trainer, and personal development coach based in the UK with a special interest in the brain, accelerated learning and people development.  My present focus is  developing high quality, simple, innovative, life-skills based, video e-learning courses. I now have over 16,000 students in more than 150 countries - this is the reach and power of e-learning.

My 'MIND MAPPING - SMART WORKING' Course is currently the NUMBER ONE Personal Development course in the mind mapping niche, with more than twice the number of enrollments and ten times the number of four and five-star reviews compared to the next most popular course. A course that's genuinely worth paying that little bit extra for. 

A bit of background information about me: 

I've worked in schools, colleges and universities in the UK, and also in the corporate and SME sector, working with students, teachers, apprentices, managers and leaders. My background is actually in clinical science where I ran an NHS Clinical Biochemistry Department in a District General Hospital and I was also a Quality Consultant to my local hospitals and local Health Authority. I also have an active interest in Health and Healing.

Back in 1996, after training in 'mental literacy' with Tony Buzan (the inventor of Mind Mapping), I set up my own training company the House of Learning. A year later, I put some of my new skills to the test and competed in the World Memory and the World Speed Reading Championships (silver medal position in the latter). Altogether, I have 20 years experience working in the personal development sector and in the field of business leadership. I am also a teacher and practitioner of Reiki and I have a Udemy course about the 'Science of Healing' 

'Mind' Mapping - Smart Working - Creating Effective Mind Maps' was my first course in this marketplace and I now also have a 'Smart Learning' and a 'Smart Speaking' course.  Many of my students have English as a second language. I have launched three new courses in 2017 and there are two more courses on the way for Summer - then I'll take a breather I think!
