As the knowledge economy grows, there is a new breed of information entrepreneurs or “infopreneurs” that is emerging. The Internet is really just one big platform for creating these new information-based businesses. And there is very little upfront investment or infrastructure needed. Unlike any time prior in history, entrepreneurs can create multi-million dollar businesses just by packaging and selling their information online.
Although the barriers to entry are low, there are so many skills you need to learn and so much technology that it can be overwhelming. It is hard to do alone. My friend, Roger Glovsky, fellow lawyer and entrepreneur, just started a new meetup called “InfoCrowd” to support entrepreneurs who want to start, grow, and manage an information product business. “Infopreneurs” include authors, speakers, publishers, coaches, consultants, and content marketers.
The InfoCrowd group will host monthly meetings, masterminds, and of course, online information. For information or to attend the inaugural meeting, go to http://www.meetup.com/
