SKILL DEVELOPMENT & INCOME GENERATION

The Entrep Center can partner with existing businesses and training institutions to help people develop skills in the areas of their natural gifting or interest and then teach them how to monetize these skills, especially in the digital and freelancing gig economy. These partnerships could include HEART Trust NSTA, Center for Entrepreneurship in Jamaica, the Authorpreneur Secret$ Academy, Internet Income Jamaica and many other entities.

RUTH's DISSERTATION FOCUS

Authorpreneurship as a model for poverty alleviation. Looking at how author entrepreneurship can foster cultural transformation (socio-economic growth, spiritual development, and legacy building) 

VISION 2030

THE UN's SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

Fairview can become a Center for Transformation and play its part in fulfilling Jamaica's Vision 2030 and the SDGs for 2030. Jamaica's Vision 2030 is that we will become a place of choice to live, work, raise families, and do business. A Center for Entrepreneurship can help to facilitate this vision. The No. 1 goal of the UN's SDGs is to eradicate poverty. As Christians we are called to serve the poor and do good works. I am on a mission to raise up 10,000 Caribbean Authorpreneurs to provide socio-economic freedom for many families across the Caribbean. Finally, the Scriptures exhort us to record the acts of God so that a generation not yet born can praise the Lord (Psa. 102:18; 1 Chron. 16:24). Author entrepreneurship is my speciality and I believe this is one means of fulfilling both Jamaica's Vision 2030, the UN's Vision 2030 and our Christian mission.

Meet C. Ruth Taylor -Academy Founder & Bestselling Author x27 books

Publishing is expensive! It is said 95% of authors lose on their first publication. Ruth knows this first hand after being greatly indebted from her first publication.

The pain of this experience and lessons learnt pushed her to find solutions so that more manuscripts don’t die in the minds of their authors.

In 2020, she discovered the secrets which led her to publish 16 books for less than what her first publication cost.

With this knowledge as well as her discoveries on how to create multiple income streams from a book, Ruth gives Caribbean authors the opportunity to publish their books and profit without breaking the bank (for a limited time period each year through the ASA membership group).

Don’t miss out! Offer ends January 30 each year!
