On yesterday’s post about becoming a consultant based on what you do at your day job, I got this question via Instagram:
“How do you do this as a college professor? You can’t accredit yourself and create your own University.”
I replied on IG, but today I wanted to share some additional insight with my entire tribe because some of you may have a similar question as well!
The short answer?
Actually, you CAN create your own university :)
(Let’s be real – if Trump could create his own university, so can you! Except yours won’t be a scam and you’ll actually help people change their lives.)
I was an adjunct professor for 3 years, so I’m familiar with the world of higher education. (I also worked in the nonprofit sector for over 10 years, which came with its own set of industry “status quos” as well!)
Anyway, as a professor, you’re trained to believe that you have to have all these letters behind your name before you can get paid to teach.
You’re taught that you have to have the “credential” or “prestige” of an institution behind you in order to earn money with your expertise.
And that you have to “play the game” and check all the boxes in order to get tenure and make enough money to live a comfortable lifestyle.
Which is simply just not true. #fakenews
You can get paid to teach without having letters behind your name.
You can earn money with your expertise without the backing of a college or university.
And you definitely don’t need to have tenure to live the lifestyle you want.
Here’s what I found out:
- My knowledge was worth way more than what they paid me as an Adjunct Professor. Like, WAY more.
- Actually, you CAN create your own university! I have several online courses that I teach through my company and our course portal is literally called Happy Black Woman University.
- You can make your own path and do whatever you want, however you want and make as much money as you want – in your OWN business.
Now, I’m not knocking college professors in any way. I love them to the moon and back.
This is about what’s POSSIBLE for you if you want to break out of that profession – or any profession.
Because of course, this advice is not just for college professors!
This concept applies to ANY woman who has expertise, education, skills or experience in a particular area.
You can monetize your knowledge through online courses, coaching, consulting, live events, retreats, speaking, ebooks and more.
You can build a profitable online business that gives you the finances to quit your job and the freedom to travel the world and live life on your own terms.
You can truly create the life and business of your dreams.
And if you need help figuring out HOW this would work for you, then come and let me break down my whole process for you in person!
