Build Yourself and Your Platform to Connect with Your Audience. How does a great idea find its way to an audience of supporters? The journey is a human one, according to author and serial entrepreneur Faisal Hoque. In this course, you will take that journey, one that can be applied to not only business, but life, as well.
Because you are at the core of your entrepreneurial venture, the course begins with you. You will learn to find and nurture your authentic self. Hoque provides insightful tips to help you pull back from the noise and stop chasing change. Instead, you will learn to heighten your awareness and become devoted to the pursuit of what matters most to your idea. You’ll also discover how to grow through the failures that are a requirement to achieve great success.
The second class helps you move from the self to the collective. Hoque helps you break down the silos that entrepreneurs often unknowingly build. He discusses how to choose your “traveling companions,” the individuals who will help form the collaborative bonds needed to grow your idea. He also provides insight into the way to make emotional connections that do more to generate effort than any financial reward could create.
Once you’ve gotten in touch with yourself and connected with others, the final class will help you create value. Go beyond a single dimension and learn how to view your surroundings as feeders for value creation. Hoque teaches you how to build a platform on which your idea will reach its audience.
