Topics covered

[1:22] When it comes to picking a topic, there are two schools of thought. The first is leveraging what you are already an expert in. The second is choosing a topic that is tangential to what you already know.

[2:41] You can use your expert knowledge to build a course using your existing knowledge.

[4:47] You don’t have to be intimidated by the word “expert”. It’s a relative term and it slides based on who is looking at you.

[5:47] Adrian discusses why those who don’t think they are an expert at anything actually might be an expert already.

[6:35] Without a proper brainstorming session, you won’t be able to get your business off the ground.

[8:32] Becoming an expert in a tangential subject (to what you already know) can be much more beneficial. Adrian discusses why.

[9:41] People will pay for a path to success. 

[10:12] Adrian gives an example of developers learning and teaching a new coding language released by Google back in the late 2000’s.

[11:35] While learning a new skill, in order to monetize all you need to do is write about that process, or create tutorials as you are teaching yourself. 

[12:08] Adrian gives a personal example of his journey with Deep Learning, and teaching it to himself in order to be able to teach others, and keeping a pulse on market trends.

[13:22] Pivoting according to market trends can be important to long term success. There is nothing wrong with that as long as you are staying true to yourself and your customers.
