When I was growing up I was always told I needed to go to college. Even when my grades were abysmal, and when I was choosing my high school courses. They would say the classes you take now will impact what you will do after. This NEED to go get a degree was prevalent everywhere I went, and I knew deep down it wasn’t meant for me.

At least in the way that everyone else wanted. I always had an entrepreneurial spirit, and that often lead me down some passionate rabbit holes.

In my work life towards the end of my schooling, and after, there was a lot of pressure even there to try and get more school too. Especially when applying to jobs, there was a time where my application would be straight up refused purely because I didn’t have a degree. What was really frustrating was when I was more experienced than the person who did end up getting the job.

I decided enough was enough, and that I wanted to do things my way. Being a polymath at heart, and a businessman in spirit/action. There wasn’t anything traditional that would fit my life. I set forth and created my own d.i.y. education. I wasn’t going to get an accredited degree, so I started documenting my journey instead with my personal brand.

The field of innovation (in multiple areas) really fascinates me, and being a polymath I feel that I can work in multiple areas. I combined those two ideas into PolyInnovator, which is where you landed to now. If you want to learn more about anything I spoke of, then check out the rest of the site!

Considering the broad range of topics a polymath can go into I realized there needed to be a system. This phase system idea I came up with when deciding what content topic ideas I wanted to make into videos, podcasts, and blog posts.

Considering my adversity to traditional education the first one was easy, Self-Education (Autodidactism). That is what most of the content has been made on for a while now, and will be for some time to come. If you are interested in creating your own education, then I encourage you to check out some of my works!

Colleges have been ever more increasingly expensive, and in reality they are becoming worthless. Your degree means very little to some of the biggest companies of the world, yet these schools are acting like they are your only option to a good life. That just couldn’t be further from the truth, and what is even worse is that you are going into thousands of dollars into debt.

Sure there used to be a time where a degree would cost a few grand, and then almost guarantee a good position at a company. Alas that time has passed, and by the time you get through school most of the knowledge you need to know is obsolete (even more so in technology based jobs).

They are sucking you dry of funds, and making you ill-prepared for the real world after. That is why I created the Modular Degree, to be your replacement.

Look I’m not going to sit here and sell to you, that being a polymath is for everyone. You are not here because of some magic origin, but you’re here for a reason. Maybe it was an interesting article, a PolyCast, or some other media brought you to me.

This site will not give you shortcuts, or “the secret” to your own development. Just for the people who are tired of being sold to by snake oil salesmen. Someone who wants to do the hard way (which doesn’t have to be that hard), and make real progress in their life.

I’ve spent a long time thinking and testing what to put on this website to describe what I mean by progress. Is it Self-Development, Self-Improvement, or like I said earlier Self-Education? In reality it is all three, and we need to cultivate that trifecta in your life.

In most cases it would be designed to tell the story of polymaths, other times more on the tune of entrepreneurship, and even others as various niches.

In reality it is all of those things. PolyInnovator is MY personal brand, yes, but I created it so I could share the creations I make with you. Including the PolyInnovator concept as well. I hope that years from now, maybe even a century, there will be someone who believes themselves to one too. That legacy of being a polymath of innovation will continue.

The second mindset I have when creating this, is that I have a vast amount of interests. More than most people even, and I want to pursue all of them. I.e. polymathy, creative endeavors, career paths, and much more. This brand allows me to create that Jack of all trades career.

These careers I am making for myself, and that you can see the progress on; this is what I mean by “Join me on a journey of a polymath”!

Currently the line up is:

Self-EduDevMent

Polymath Exercise

PolyInnovator Gaming

Innovation and Sustainability

etc.

ย 

Each phase may end, but the content I create for them will not. I would hate it if my favorite creator would rope me in with something, then just stop doing it for something else. My intention is to grow out the content, not replace, so that the topics can last a long time.

ย 

Ever since I started blogging in 2011 I wanted to share my knowledge and ideas with the world. I’ve had this dream that I could impact the entire planet, and inspire people to become more than what they originally thought they could.

Let me share this passion with you in my writing!

How Elementor Saved the PolyInnovator Website

I want to share the story with you about how the Elementor plugin saved my website! What makes you get up in the morning? For me it is my website, and the people who follow the content I create. That is what drives me to do more and more. Well my main hub, my site, broke late last year.

The podcast form of the Omni-Content is special because of how vastly dynamic the topics can be. With videos being a dominant force on the internet, the power of voice is growing. I wanted to share my knowledge in various areas in a more accessible format for you.

In addition I aim to bring in fantastic guests of many different areas and backgrounds. Giving you the polymath approach to a world wide mindset.
