Skillshare: Teacher Stories: Joe Fairless

skillshare:

Joe Fairless teaches a Skillshare class on how to Launch a No-Fail Business Model. Joe’s class launched only a month ago, and he’s already enrolled about 200 students (and made about $1,000 too!) We’ve asked Joe about why he started teaching on Skillshare, and his advice to future teachers.

My Skillshare class practically created itself! It’s a combination of what I just experienced with my failed and successful companies and the 7+ years of consulting with Fortune 500 companies, successful start-ups and start-ups that had flawed business models. I saw and experienced what worked and what didn’t work for businesses. So, I thought I’d share that with others to help them shorten the growing pains when starting a new biz or take their current biz to the next level.

This is the type of teaching that should be taking place on campuses everywhere as we attempt to spark the entrepreneurial spirit in our students.
