"The Power of Monetizing Your Knowledge: Turning Expertise into Income"

Have you ever met someone really, really smart, yet they are still unsure as to the value of their expertise? Or have you ever met someone that is great at their trade, but often wonders who would even appreciate their uniqueness?

In my years in business and education, I can honestly say that more people like the ones I described exist, than the ones that actually had the guts to start their own business based on their skills.

What is the problem, what is holding them back? For adults like you and I, one of the many issues is self-efficacy or the belief that there is value in what we have to share. This could be further from the truth. In today's day and age, where the price of education is astronomical, the search for experts in competitive fields is growing at an accelerated pace. If this is the case, then why start now? Here are 6 compelling reasons that may give you the motivation to get started.

1. Skilled Trades Shortage: Many industries are experiencing a shortage of skilled tradespeople due to the retiring workforce and a historical push towards four-year college degrees.

2. Economic Factors: Economic shifts and infrastructure projects often increase the demand for skilled tradespersons in areas like construction, welding, and electrical work.

3. Technological Advancements: The integration of technology into traditional trades is creating new opportunities and increasing the appeal of these careers.

4. Educational Shifts: There's a growing recognition of the value of vocational training and apprenticeships, leading to more educational programs and initiatives supporting trades.

5. Cost of Education: The high cost of traditional college education is leading some to consider trade careers as a less expensive path to a well-paying job.

6. Pandemic Impact: The COVID-19 pandemic has also influenced job market trends, with some trades seeing a surge in demand due to changes in consumer behavior and needs.

If this is not enough, don't take my word for granted, visit the most recent labor statistics at and industry reports, which will truly open your eyes as to the high demand in the next few year in the fields I mentioned.
