Welcome to Entrepreneurship Bootcamp, a course designed for new and aspiring business owners.
You might be telling yourself: "I want to start a business but I don't have a business degree." It's OK, neither do I, and I was still able to grow, and continue to grow successful small businesses. Experience and creativity are better than education. Experience cannot be taught, the only way to learn new skills is through first-hand experience. The best business you can start is one that aligns with your skills, expertise, passion, and goals.
This course is designed to help you learn how to start any business. Whether you want to open a home-based business, online retail store, coffee shop, or day-care center, the strategies you will learn in this course are the foundation to the success of any business.
