Entrepreneurial Education as Social School Reform?
When I founded The Order of Profitable Producers I was working with partners seeking perpetual profits. It was not always that way. Maybe you can relate. Change is challenging, even when perpetual profits are in play. Entrepreneurial Education opens up the flood gates for social change.
“Leverage Learning Into Significant Solutions!”
You and I are significant. We lead lives of consequence. As we overlook our weaknesses and build on our strengths we, you and I, will make life better for those we serve. I want each of us to realize the significance we can accomplish in our lives. I see effective learning and immediate implementation as the way to initiate significant changes in our lives and the systems around us.
I find joy and satisfaction helping individuals grow personally and professionally in projects growing out of The Order of Profitable Producers.
So you ask, “What does Teach Jim do?” Oh, I …. enable earning while fostering self-directed learning with
Entrepreneurial Education! At the same time I hope we are effecting social school reform.
Once you experience self-directed learning you’ll have a hard time watching systems slow the progress of you and your family.
Formal vs Informal Learning. The Results are in!
Formal education is a great starting place but it just is not enough to handle the challenges of continual change. No wonder so many of us are stuck. Sorting out possibilities in a changing world is not something they taught us in school. I worked in the school system and know it is far from perfect.
Informal learning took over my career! In my life, self-directed learning, empowered no less than four career changes. IT WAS NOT WHAT I LEARNED IN SCHOOL that got me these career advancements. It was not what I learned in school that opened up my ability to earn income from tools, technologies and training that did not exist when I was finishing my formal education.
Have you ever seen someone drown? It hurts. I’ve seen it a dozen times as the dreams of a successful online business sputtered and coughed under the waves of information, the pressure to purchase yet another course and the constant call for quick answer “sure” systems.
I’m sick at what I witnessed and began to count my blessings. Why was I so fortunate?
Somehow, I found my way to solid ground and solutions that produced results. How could I help others overcome the unresolved issues left over by their formal schooling? Moreover, how do we, you and I help people get over the pains of a drowning?
Now, We Inc.provides a safety net for significant personal growth and service.
The Strategies Work!
My marketing and business owner friends learn informally most of the time. They learned most of what they use daily outside of schools and courses. They learned by doing. They applied the same specific strategies I applied. They were able to leverage their learning into success. They too directed their own learning activities. Is requires so much more than taking “lessons”.
These solutions are what people willingly pay me for. Now, I offer these learning strategies and productive performance patterns to my students. I help them smile and even laugh at the sea of information trying to overwhelm them. They now, like a duck, enjoy “Water off their back!”
We hope you will consider breaking the bonds of your formal education by participating in We Inc. interactives in the iLEARNet Community. See you there.
Don’t thing about elephants… Wink instead!
