Have you ever said: “I wish there had been an entrepreneurism class when I was in school”?
It’s a comment that I hear frequently from solopreneurs of varied educational backgrounds, including liberal-arts graduates, law-school grads, tech-school grads, and even people who studied ministry.
I’ve even been told by colleagues that I should build a Solopreneurism 101 course. I think it’s an intriguing — yet daunting — idea; I would have to invest a huge amount of time and energy in building the course, and I’m not yet convinced that people REALLY want something like this.
For now, I need your opinion: what subjects would you want covered in a Solopreneurism 101 course?
Please leave your comments below or send me an email with your thoughts.
Finally, here’s a quote from Dennis Ray, “Liberal Arts for Entrepreneurs”:
A liberal arts education might be viewed as a metaphor for entrepreneurship. The humanities suggest that the entrepreneur is an artist. History might see entrepreneurs as the true revolutionaries of technological, economic, and social change. A liberal arts education is rich in metaphors that are capable of capturing the multifaceted life of an entrepreneur. A course in film or the theatre might suggest that the entrepreneur is a stage or film director, while a course in physical education might reveal the entrepreneur as a coach…Undergraduate entrepreneurship education should not be viewed as a narrow careerist pursuit, but as giving new life to the traditions of a liberal arts education.
