Practical, No-nonsense Advice
This is a practical, no nonsense, and direct curriculum that covers the very basics of starting a company, such as the type of company to start all the way through servicing customers and more importantly making a profit. Your instructors are people who have successfully started and run businesses.
We will cover things like starting low capital businesses because we understand that most people do not have a lot of capital (less than $1,000) to start businesses. There are no fees for the course, indirectly or directly, and nothing is available for sale.
