"Great idea, Michael! Education should be fun at any age. From your website, it appears you are currently targeting those 65+. I would imagine you could expand your audience to younger adults, too? I like the idea Travis suggested of having a…"

"Cool idea! You could probably even teach classes for people to learn how to use their iPhones, iPads, or lap tops better. Then you could teach a couple classes at a Panera and have the students bring their own equipment. Just an idea. Good Luck"

Adult education classes made fun

Looking for feedback on the business idea of adult education made fun for adults.  Years ago, I use to teach part-time for a company called “Fun Ed”.  The classes were not your typical college class.   A class could be 1-3 days, a crash course in some type of topic, like “Computer for Absolute Beginners”, “How to play Bridge”, “Technology for Dummies”, “Start an online business” and many more.I have had my own business before and would be doing some of the training. They paid the instructor…See More

Hello Michael,

I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.

I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!

Finally, it sounds like you are a communicator and interested in speaking. If so, consider joining the Speak It Forward . There are some great discussions going on that will likely be very profitable for you.

Again, enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
