Isaac Morehouse is the CEO of Crash, the career launch platform, and the founder of Praxis, a startup apprenticeship program. He joins me today to map out a better route to beginning or even relaunching a fulfilling career.
Better than what?
Better than what almost all of us learned to do. School inculcates a permission mentality; schooled people seek someone to vouch for them. Today you'll stand out more if you can vouch for yourself.
Isaac's book, Crash Your Career: Ditch the Gatekeepers and Be Your Own Credential, provides a step-by-step process for how to do this. In it he writes:
"...degrees are dead, whether or not most people know it yet. The internet killed them. But it didn’t kill them by putting lectures and courses online — remember, people don’t pay tuition for the lectures and courses. The internet killed degrees because it brought the cost of information so low that now anyone anywhere can build a better signal than a degree through a digital footprint, brand, or body of work.You can now be your own credential. You can make something better than a third-party paper." (read more from the book HERE)
