Democratization of Education, With Joeel and Natalie Rivera

Filed in Podcasts, Previous Episodes on October 10, 2019

Democratizing an industry means putting the means of production and consumption into the hands of the people. No more middle man, who tends to discriminate about who has access and who collects a fee to access it. Many industries have been “democratized”. For example, AirBNB has democratized hotels. Uber has democratized the taxi/transportation market. Today, individual people can turn their home or car into a means to make money by offering it to someone who previously only could rent a room or catch a ride through hotels or taxis.

And this brings us to what we’re talking about here: online courses are democratizing education.

Joining Adam to further explain about democratizing education are Joeel and Natalie Rivera.


  • What the future of education looks like;
  • Why entrepreneurship is the ultimate form of empowerment;
  • How you can create a purpose-driven business;
  • The benefits of online course creation;
  • And much more!

Ff you’re an entrepreneur or anyone who wants to get paid to do what you love, there has NEVER been more opportunities than there are today…don’t miss this episode.


About This Guest: ()

After their business crumbled due to a sudden illness that had Joeel bedridden for a year, Joeel (jo-ELL) and Natalie Rivera (ri-VAIR-uh) decided they never wanted to be in that situation again. So they dedicated themselves to converting their training and speaking programs into online courses that would outlive them and would provide passive income. They reached over 100,000 students from 191 countries in only 3 years and became advocates for the democratization of education. Today they are passionate about teaching anyone with a skill, experience or passion to share (which is everyone) how to monetize their knowledge in this new economy by teaching what they know and love online.
