On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Dr. Lindsay Padilla joins me to discuss her experience leaving academia to become an entrepreneur. Dr. Lindsay Padilla is the founder of Course Power, a company that helps trailblazing entrepreneurs create student-centered courses, content and communities that get their clients A+ results! Using her tenure-track years spent teaching adults online at a community college and the ridiculous amount of learning she has done in all things education, her team specializes in supporting digital entrepreneurs with the early stages of course or program creation, with a focus on optimizing content and elevating the experience using student feedback. With this unique background, she is also the rambunctious host of the Academics Mean Business Podcast, which shares the journeys of other academics who have started businesses. In this episode, we discuss: -Why Lindsay left academia to pursue entrepreneurship -How to create and optimize a business with an academic background -Does expertise and value need to be understood by the public to sell courses? -Do you need an academic degree to sell knowledge online? -And so much more!   “Look at your time that you give to the institution.”   “It’s not unspoken but it’s expected that we give a lot of our time back and in many cases we are not compensated back for that time particularly fairly.”   “The institution kind of exploits our passion for teaching and learning and loving on our students.”   “Probably the biggest thing we struggle with is marketing.”   “Higher ed has a PR problem.”   “The institution doesn’t just hold the knowledge anymore.”   “You’re impact is bigger than you can probably imagine at this moment.”   “What you can create is infinite.”   For more information on Lindsay: Dr. Lindsay Padilla is the founder of Course Power, a company that helps trailblazing entrepreneurs create student-centered courses, content and communities that get their clients A+ results!
