DRAFT Business Planning Stuff
First written 7 of 2018, revised 8/2/2018
High Priority Pitch acloud.guru There’s a One-Time Opportunity at ACloud.guru The guy doing cloud programming is one 50 minute course ahead of you, for example, but this won’t last. Pitch acloudguru.com. (That was true in July, already there is more content for Google, Python, etc.). This means picking a course, any course, and developing a list of what you could teach, and an elevator pitch.
Lawyer. Free up capital. Stop paying adult deadbeat.
The Big Issue – Creating Inventory
The main issue is the time it takes to develop courses.
Timing Options are:
- Cut Helen off ASAP, quit day job at 59.5 (or sooner) when I have access to retirement fund + cash on hand as start-up money.
- Build until 62.5 at some # of hours per day. What are you willing to do?
A Smaller ??? One – Where is the Market?
- Buy or build?
A problem or limitation to existing platforms is that they’re saturated with existing content in popular topics.
This is problem with Pluralsight, couldn’t do intro to Java for example.
May not be a problem with Lynda.com according to that same article.
What is your focus? Could develop this in pitch to ACloudGuru.com
LinkedIn (Lynda.com) - Overlap OK?
Skillshare – Looks like low pay
Teachable - Rental platform. Might be good starting out? Vendor Lock?
Topics or Courses
~/source/teach/ContinuousDeploymentJenkins.odp - Continous Deployment for Kubernetes using Jenkins. 9 slides, ready to demo?
~/source/teach/Terraform.odp. “Getting Started with Terraform - Multi-Cloud Infrastructure as Code.” 7 slides. Was working on this last – July 19th :( :(. Has pic of me, some common stuff. Ready to demo?
Should alternatives even be considered?
- Focusing on owning the platform instead. A whole bunch (?) of initial work, with no content.
