Orlando, FL – June 25, 2015 – Former Executive Vice President of Operations for Walt Disney World® Resort, Lee Cockerell, is providing the tools that entrepreneurs need to start and grow a successful business on Thrive15.com. Thrive15.com provides engaging 15-minute online courses taught by millionaire mentors and everyday entrepreneurial success stories. Thrive15.com is often compared to Lynda.com, which provides business skills online, but is not tailored for entrepreneurs.
As the senior operating executive for 10 years, Cockerell led a team of 40,000 and was responsible for the operations of 20 resort hotels, four theme parks, two water parks, a shopping and entertainment village and the ESPN Sports and Recreation complex. Cockerell brings his real-life experience at Disney to mentor millions on Thrive15.com. Cockerell’s training videos cover topics such as: leadership, overcoming adversity, mindset, customer service, human resources, and management. Cockerell attributes his success to being diligent and building great teams, implementing best practice management systems, and to becoming a time management expert.
“You have to make the call you’re afraid to make. You have to get up earlier than you want to get up. You have to care more about others than they care about you. I am honored to provide practical training videos from my years of experience to help others be successful in business,” says Lee Cockerell.
According to the Wall Street Journal, 90% of new skills are lost within a year with little practical follow-up or meaningful assessments. Thrive15.com subscribers can self-evaluate themselves on the 20 core areas of business mastery known as the “Wheel of Wealth” and are then encouraged to watch specific trainings based upon how they scored themselves. Thrivers are also free to watch thousands of episodes as many times as they want to improve their business skills. The practical business courses found within the Thrive15.com website cover topics such as accounting, sales, marketing, business modeling, legal, public relations and other subjects which team of mentors believe are essential for entrepreneurs to master.
Thrive15.com launched out of beta on February 1, 2015 after nearly three years of development. The website provides engaging 15-minute online courses taught by millionaire mentors and everyday entrepreneurial success stories. 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 which has funded over 8,000 + entrepreneurs totaling over $3 billion, 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.
Thrive15.com costs subscribers $49 per month, $19 per month for students and offers a free subscription to all U.S. veteran or active duty military members with every paid subscription with the 1 for 1 HandUp Movement.
“We know business schools can cost up to $100,000 and courses are not usually taught by world-class mentors such as Lee Cockerell who teaches Thrivers to run their business like Disney. We created an affordable way for entrepreneurs to learn real, practical training from world-class mentors they would not normally have access to,” says Thrive15.com Founder, Clay Clark.
