Tulsa, OK – June 25, 2015 – An active duty military member is learning entrepreneurship on the online education platform, Thrive15.com, and planning for his transition out of the military after serving in Afghanistan. Because of online access to world-class education on platforms like Thrive15.com and Lynda.com, anyone can learn business skills they need to succeed. Thrive15.com teaches entrepreneurs how to start or grow a business online, much like Lynda.com’s model of online learning.
Instead of offering grades like traditional online and offline schools, Thrive15.com allows users to earn points. Each month the subscriber who earns the most points is awarded a one-on-one mentorship session Thrive15.com founder Clay Clark and an opportunity to compete to win the business boost cash prized valued at over $10,000. The boost prize amount is determined by an algorithm formula, which resulted in the last prize being $30,000 in total cash value.
Thrive15.com has teamed up David Robinson and the U.S. Chamber’s Hiring Our Heroes Program to provide free subscriptions to U.S. military families as part of the 1 for 1 HandUp Movement. The program works by providing a free subscription to veteran, reserve, and active duty members of the U.S. military and their spouses for every paid subscription on the website.
“I’m a huge fan of the online classroom idea. Something that I’ve run into with my husband is that right now he is limited on non-military professional development that he can do just because of time. Afghanistan keeps him busy. He still has a couple years before he gets out, but with everything that’s going on we’re trying to be proactive and be prepared; the job security isn’t quite what it used to be with veterans,” says Kristen Smith, wife of Active Duty Military Member Serving in Afghanistan.
Thrive15.com launched out of beta in February 2015, after nearly three years of development. The website provides engaging 15-minute online courses taught by world-class mentors. The mentors include success stories such as NBA Hall of Famer turned successful entrepreneur, David Robinson, the former Executive Vice President of Operations for Walt Disney World Resort, Lee Cockerell, the funding expert and the co-founder of Guidant Financial, David Nilssen, the New York Times bestselling author and publicist of choice for Michael Jackson, Prince, P. Diddy, Charlton Heston and countless celebrities, Michael Levine and countless experts.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics from 2013, 722,000 U.S. veterans were unemployed. Thrive15 is offering a free solution to those looking to start or grow a business.
