Hi there, I hope I found you well and healthy. I am writing you about a subject that I was thinking since long time to write about it. Today is the day. :)
Are you looking for PDUs (Professional Development Units) to get or maintain a degree?
You shouldn't. Here is why? Because PDU is a byproduct of Lock-In Business Model, and this business model badly takes advantage of students.
In a minute I will tell you what the Lock-In Business Model is, why it's a very lucrative source of income for education providers, and why it's bad for students.
Let's say you're a person who loves reading, studying and absorbing the world's information. And then you decided to have a degree in subject X to have proven credibility or may be for some social proof. Subject X here can be anything you want to learn and improve. No limits. Then you make your degree in this subject X from a "reputable and famous" education company. So far, so good..
Here comes the big surprise. In order to maintain your degree from this "famous company", you need to regularly pay for something. You need to pay for your PDUs. All sorts of fees. The "famous company" keeps you busy to continuously pay extras just because you want your name to associate with them. This is what we call "Lock-In Business Model" in education industry.
Membership, subscription, community, additional content, books, videos, tools, events, so on and so forth. "Famous company" doesn't really sincerely care about your educational needs. It really doesn't matter for them if you really require to pay for these goodies to stay fit with your knowledge and degree. What they really care is locked-in income they milk from you. Imagine you could be leading a space shuttle team and accomplish a successful mission, but "famous company" can still revoke your leadership degree because you don't pay additional PDU fees. ;)
Let's open your eyes. We need to be careful and we should never forget that education is a business too. There are countless other examples of how "famous companies" optimise their income for themselves while they badly abuse their students.
Regardless you live majority of your life from a business person or a consumer point of view, you should be well aware of the most common business models globally used.
As a business person, business models can help you better and honestly help your audience and as a consumer your knowledge about business models can help you uncover the hidden agendas of "famous companies" in all industries. While you're spending your money on something, spend also a few minutes to think about what sort of business model you're stepping in. Are you stepping in a model that is built to solve your problems or a business model that is built to make you pay and pay and pay soon again.
If you read until this point, I want to share two useful things that may enrich your thinking even further.
1. This is an inventory, a checklist of 55 most common business models globally used. As mentioned before you need to be aware of them not only as a professional, but also as a consumer too.
2. This is a lock-in free, accredited and globally recognized MBA degree like our other degrees and programs. If you may not need such a degree at this time, please feel free to recommend our lock-in free, affordable and student-friendly services to your valuable friends and colleagues.
Thank your very much for your support and attention.
And take care. :)

Hi there, Have you ever wondered why only too few people are successful? Many people work hard, they constantly chase for opportunities but still they have to spend and finish their careers with unsubstantial results. This is sad, so is the truth.
Like unsuccessful people, successful people chase for opportunities too, but what makes success scarce whereas mediocrity is abundant in professional careers?Join This Discussion >>

Hi, How are you doing? Today I wanted to share Part 1 of 2 of an experiment I did some years ago.
The results were pretty interesting. I'm going to share the whole process with you. But use this with respect to others. Reread what I wrote in the previous posts about caring for your people and helping them.Join This Discussion >>
Hi, it's Yeliz!
Let's see if you guessed correctly. The end result of the experiment I mentioned at Part 1 of 2 was Consistency.
And when I leveraged that consistency, I was able to get more support from these leaders and managers than I ever had up until that point. Here’s why.Join This Discussion >>
Hi there, Last summer I was in Seattle.
I used this occasion to meet up with a few dozens of our alumni students in this region.
Amit, a 23 years old tall guy who studied his college in USA and made his MBA-CFP degree online with us, mentioned to me about an experiment he'd recently conducted.Join This Discussion >>
Hi there, I love that you're here because one of my favourite things to do is take a smart professional and lifetime student like yourself and make you become even more successful.
It's something that I practice in my own career, of course, but I love helping others too.Join This Discussion >>
You are moving from the world of fixed nouns towards a world of fluid verbs. Within the next years you will continue taking solid things -such as a car or a jacket- and turning them into intangible verbs. Your products are becoming your services and processes. With high doses of built-in technology, your car is becoming a service, continuously updated set of benefits adapting to your own usage and feedback, fierce competition and global innovation.Join This Discussion >>
Are you good at business models?
Of course you are. We know all about business models, don’t we?
A lifetime as a consumer and almost a lifetime as a professional we all believe that we are well proficient in business models. We don’t hesitate more than a second to give our opinion if a business idea will work or not. And we are very generous to give our feedback how a company can perform better. But do we really have enough insights about business models?Join This Discussion >>
