As new platforms make new business models and means of ownership accessible to everyone, we’re already seeing a new class of creator emerge that’s more SMB than celebrity.
Greg Smith is the Founder and CEO of Thinkific, the leading platform for creating, marketing and selling online courses and membership sites. Greg is passionate about helping entrepreneurs create or grow a business around their own passions, knowledge or skills.
Prior to launching Thinkific, Greg was a corporate lawyer for one of the largest law firms in Canada. During this time, he launched an online course as a side project, which allowed him to share his passion and expertise with thousands around the world. Revenues from his course soon surpassed his salary as a lawyer.
Since then, Greg and his team at Thinkific have grown to power the courses for over 51,000 people and businesses worldwide in 190 countries, have taught millions of students and have sold over $300 million in courses.
When he’s not empowering knowledge entrepreneurs, Greg can be found kiteboarding, sitting around a campfire, playing board games and spending time with his wife, daughter and son.
