Brandon Uttley Growing A Business, Podcast, Starting A Business Leave a Comment

Go For Launch Podcast Show 60If you want to know how to become an “infopreneur,” Bailey Richert is an excellent person to teach you. In fact, that is what infopreneurs do—they package their knowledge around a specific subject and sell it to others in a variety of ways.

Bailey joined me on this week’s Go For Launch podcast. She is a business coach who helps individuals launch profitable online enterprises as infopreneurs—or respected experts in their fields who create value and profit by sharing their passions with others in a manner that supports their ideal lifestyles.Bailey Richert

After working the 9-5 grind as a consultant in California until 2014, she quit my job and enrolled at MIT to study entrepreneurship. She then launched a successful online travel education company, DontDieAbroad.com, and has expanded into teaching “infopreneurship” to other people (e.g., how to create and sell digital informational products online).

Her new book, Life Experience Millionaire,  is available on Amazon, and she offers a free video training course that outlines her 6-step process to launching an infopreneur business.
