I've been sharing a lot recently about uncertainty and transformation and how we can together come out of a crisis like COVID-19 even stronger.
And with my clients, I've emphasized strategies such as mindfulness, gratitude, and reality-based positive psychology.
Another practice (that I not only preach but personally implement is being of service.
What's my why?
For starters, I become a better person myself by teaching others. This effect of “the teacher growing via the act of teaching was researched through a series of studies at the University of Pennsylvania. An important finding (related to desired weight loss, which was the focus on this research) found that people who mentored others on weight loss ended up losing more weight themselves.
Benefits are also long term, as studies of philanthropy and purpose show that people tend to live longer lives as a result of having a purpose and giving back to others.
Another more tangible benefit, for those that are looking to use the money metric to measure success, is that online courses can be very lucrative if you choose to enroll students via a paid model.
If you don't yet have an online course, here are some interesting statistics to consider:
- The e-learning market is estimated to hike from $190 billion in 2018 to $300 billion by 2025 (2019 Global Market Insights report).
- Online Learning is the fastest-growing segment in the learning arena (any area of learning), and it’s accelerating due to the global pandemic.
- Over 70% of ALL classes/courses will be online by 2021.
- Offering online courses or programs is the #1 way that people are making money from their knowledge or teaching content
- Your potential students/clients are now expecting their teachers or guides (you) to offer online programs as a way to work with them from wherever they live.
And what about the HOW?
