    109 - Bonus: Building educational frameworks — with Christine Looser

    This is a companion episode to our previous chat with The Minerva Project managing director, Ayo Seligman.

    106 - Digital real estate — with Jeff Lerner

    Jeff Lerner is the founder and CEO of Entre Institute, a platform that teaches people how to build business’ and make a living in non-traditional ways. Which makes sense, because when he was a kid he dropped out of high school and taught himself jazz piano to pay the bills.

    Eventually, he traded the piano keys for a keyboard, started his own affiliate marketing business and dug himself out of insurmountable debt—about $400K to be exact.
