Generally speaking, knowledge isn’t hard to come by. Wisdom, however, is a different story. For many of us, our formal education can only take us so far; developing expertise is where the real results come from. An infoprenuer, a term coined in the 1980s by H Skip Weitzen describes a person who turns their own knowledge into a source of income.
Knowledge commerce is essentially selling you expertise to those who want to learn and who are willing to pay for it. Topics can range from practical skills like computer programming to softer skills like interpersonal communication and even life coaching. Whatever it is you think you have to offer, the fact of the matter is that people want your skills!
For many infoprenuers, it is their own interests that spur them into sharing with others. A passionate teacher is often an effective teacher making infoprenuership a high-energy and rewarding field.
