The first Australian ‘Edupreneur Awards’ are being held this weekend in Perth. As you’d probably guess from the name, it’s been organised to recognise and celebrate the many people out there that are creating new and innovative ways to deliver training and get their message out there. Unfortunately, nominations for the event are closed, however, there’s still time to get tickets for what promises to be an interesting and popular event.
Here’s some information from the organisers…
The world of business has changed and we find ourselves in a new era – an era where the traditional entrepreneur is extinct and a brand new breed of entrepreneur is flourishing: The Edu-preneur.
The Edupreneur is here to shake up the future of marketing, lead generation, sales and customer relationships; for they have discovered a method of business growth that ditches sales and instead embraces education.
Edu-preneurs work in any industry. They could be solopreneurs, infopreneurs, entrepreneurs, employed professionals, small/medium/large sized businesses (local or international) and of any niche expertise.
They are people that either as part of their main business activity, or as a by-product of their usual business activities, inform and educate their markets.
If you provide your market with (free or paid) informative/educational articles, webinars, workshops, eBooks, workbooks, tutorial videos, online or face to face training, seminars or any other medium of ‘education’ in your niche area – then YOU are an Edupreneur.
Educating your audience not only contributes to your business and to the body of knowledge within your industry, but it also gives you a sense of exclusivity in a blue ocean.
You raise yourself above all the other people who are just talking about their topic, and leverage yourself as the only one who is teaching people how to do it.
This automatically increases your influence, leads, impact and ultimately your earnings.
Before long, you position yourself as the go-to expert in your field, the guru (in the original sense of respected teacher) who teaches us how to do what you do best.
This is when your small efforts to prime the pump generate a growing flow of customers coming to you. No more scrabbling for table scraps. Ever.
Are your eyes realising this seismic shift in business, and on the flip side, the tremendous opportunity for meeting the growing hunger for valuable knowledge?
Are you beginning to see how being an edu-preneur is a far more valued and lucrative place to be than a business that just ‘tells and sells’?
We need more edupreneurs. The demand is huge, and so are the rewards, financially and on so many other levels.
And you can become an edupreneur – far easier than you think.
Edu-preneurship is the new Entrepreneurship and the time is now. Are you ready to hop on board?
Many already are and the first ever Edupreneur Awards will be taking place in Perth on Friday 31st July 2015 at The Duxton Hotel in Perth.
