Thrive15: Learn About Business In 15 Minute Bursts
Posted By Mark O'Neill On April 15, 2014 @ 5:30 am In Startup | 7 Comments
A new educational platform launching next month, called Thrive15 , aims to educate people about creating a business. And it does so without the need for an expensive degree.
What makes Thrive15 unique is that, instead of overwhelming participants with huge amounts of information and coursework, the platform will focus instead on providing short 15 minute videos. They are presented by high profile VIP’s in the world of business, who have been in the trenches and have proved themselves.
These VIP’s include David Robinson, former NBA champion with the San Antonio Spurs, and now a successful businessman. There’s also Lee Cockerell, former Executive Vice President for Operations at Disney World.
Add to this, accountants, CFO’s, a New York Times best-selling author, the man who introduced Stairmaster into the marketplace. Others include Jill Donavan of Rustic Cuff, who created a jewelry line that ships all over the world. You can also learn from singer Garth Brooks’ web-developer of choice, a CPA who once oversaw 1,000 employees in a $2.1 billion dollar company. You get the idea.
CEO and Founder of Thrive15 Clay Clark explains:
“There are doctors, lawyers, existing business owners, and dropouts who have no clue how to grow a profitable business. Either I can stress myself out by trying to do the impossible and meet them all or I can find a scalable solution to this problem. My solution is Thrive.”
The site will be subscription-based and videos will cover many aspects of running a business from raising capital to marketing. Participants earn points for the videos they complete and are encouraged to share content through their social media channels.
Because the videos are only 15 minutes in length, they can be watched whenever the person has a spare minute. Whether that is commuting to work, exercising on the treadmill, or lying in the bath. The price for listening to all of this business wisdom is $50 per month.
There are even some prizes planned for participation. Every 3 months, Thrive will give away a Business Booster Prize Package. This will feature one intensive day of face-to-face business coaching with the Thrive Board. The entrepreneur who earns the most Thrive points will receive a $10,000 cash prize, which they can use to grow their business. Their business will also be promoted throughout the Thrive network.
The site does not launch until the beginning of May. But you can visit the site and register today.
Which successful businessperson would YOU like to be mentored by on the site?
