The Scholarpreneur Podcast is an emerging education and business podcast in iTunes. Each week I interview people who are succeeding in the 21st academic world, where tenure is disappearing and adjuncting doesn’t pay. I deconstruct their steps to success, finding out what works and what doesn’t so your to success is as simple as possible I feature interviews with academics who are building extraordinary businesses. Some use YouTube and have parlayed this digital presence to public speaking gigs and online teaching. Others have built freelance academic translation businesses, earning far more than they ever did at a university. I also reveal cutting-edge techniques that you can begin to implement today by exploring the state of higher education and dissecting what scholars need to know about the current job market.
