An important change is underway in the business world. And two friends and tech guys are transforming how people are earning money based on what they know.

In the traditional business model, people were hired based on their body of knowledge; the company determined what that knowledge was worth, and the worker earned a paycheck in return. Earning more depended on getting promoted, or taking that knowledge elsewhere.

Now, in response to the rise of the knowledge economy, a growing number of people are realizing that their knowledge is not only their best career asset; it’s a true, marketable commodity. And they are finding success at tremendous scale, by offering it to a wide base of people who are willing to pay for it.
