Sharing Your Expertise: Gigs and Beyond

In a competitive marketplace, a healthy business model hinges on three essential factors: Your reputation as the go-to expert on your topic; your distinctive ability to transfer your expertise to a receptive, paying audience; your ability to leverage your expertise through focused marketing and revenue-generating activity.

During this hands-on session, you’ll develop an action plan to:

  • Identify and leverage your expertise
  • Invent a process, system, strategy, or model to transfer that expertise
  • Leverage your expertise through a mix of products and services
