To help solve these challenges, I’m excited to announce The Gamers’ Advantage – a 4 to 6-week long online entrepreneurship course for adult beginners age 18+ that is designed especially for gamers, with special focus on your advantage in startup. This is one that gamers can win and have a lot more control over their work lives, incomes, and job security in so doing. Forget conventional “wisdom” that gaming is turning us all into a rabid gang of violent maniacs, because as it turns out, video gameplay is producing better surgeons, helping people overcome dyslexia, reducing stress and physical pain, improving vision – and helping gamers develop valuable skills.
Mental-strength, leadership, decision-making and problem-solving, in addition to building and managing teams, are all skills that we gamers have honed that give us an advantage in business startup. You can read more about the advantages that gamers possess from my partner, C.J. Meenan – entrepreneurial leader and startup strategist – , but suffice to say that he also isn’t sold on the tired (and unsubstantiated) idea that gamers are violent perpetrators who might do better in life if they just “worked harder” and stopped complaining. We need solutions.
