Summary

Organizing and presenting educational content is extremely difficult and usually poorly done. Listen to Rob share a business idea that helps people rapidly become experts in new topics.

Show Notes

Nuggets:

  • Have customer discovery conversations in a casual setting to get real feedback; otherwise people will naturally try to placate your ego
  • Design products (including education and workshops) such that attendees are energized at the end, not drained
  • The key to sales is having a more expensive product; selling a $1,000,000 is within an order of magnitude as easy as selling a $1,000 product

Action Steps:

  1. Choose a topic you are interested in and curate a lesson plan
  2. Find educators who are teaching that subject and offer it to them for free
  3. Watch how users respond to the plan and use that feedback to improve it
  4. Fall off your bike
