I believe everyone has a message to share – our life experiences have formed us into who we are, and others can gain from that knowledge. I also believe that many passionate people are stuck in the early stages of building a business. There is so much noise out there, it can be hard to find a way forward. Ultimately, good people with good ideas get frustrated, overwhelmed, and discouraged.
Not on my watch.

Knowledge is Priceless
There is no other you. Your competitive advantage is your uniqueness and ability to position yourself, your knowledge, and your expertise as the solution your next client needs.
Increased competition often focuses on price – making the pricing premiums of traditional business models obsolete. When there is a race to the bottom, there are no winners.
I focus on strategy, consulting, and knowledge
By creating a strategy – a blueprint – we can map exactly how to position yourself as an expert in the industry. I want you to be seen — not as a vendor — but as a trusted advisor.
What is the Knowledge Economy?
The Knowledge Economy is a business model built on monetizing information. What does this mean? On a large scale, think of companies like Google, Amazon, or Facebook. With some exceptions, they don’t “produce” anything. Not like the factories of the Industrial Age or farmers of the Agricultural Age, anyway. Instead, they take huge amounts of information and package it up into useable bits that are in demand. In this case, user data which is sold to advertisers.
Now, when we zoom into us mere mortals, we can apply this same idea. We can take information (our experiences, perspectives, skills, abilities, etc) and package it into useable bits that are in demand.
Consider the case of Tim the Tile Man:
Tim has been tiling homes across New England for the better part of 20 years. He can only work 8-10 hours a day and can only service customers in the geographical area in which he lives. Tim is offering a Service. Tim’s two decades of experience have rewarded him with a lot of insights, shortcuts, and tips. In other words, Tim knows a lot about tiling.
If he were to apply the Knowledge Economy model, he could stop tiling and sell his experience. Perhaps he makes himself available for paid 1-on-1 phone or video appointments, maybe he sells an ebook offering the Top 101 Tiling Tricks & Tips, or creates a helpful guide for DIY’ers to tile their own house in popular patterns.
By doing this, Tim has leveraged his knowledge and can now scale his business. No longer is he limited to 8-10 hours a day of backbreaking labor. Instead, he has productized his experience and monetizes it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
That is the Knowledge Economy.
