Overview

Learn to use strategic and idea generation tools that can help you get a handle on entrepreneurship and startup strategy and tactics.

Since you are here reading this, chances are you want to make something meaningful happen like start a business, be more successful and fulfilled, or make your mark on the universe.

It is also likely that a few things are holding you back from achieving your dreams:

Business Fear. The feeling that you don’t know much about business and could never start your own company or take more responsibility for your current situation. Better to maintain the status quo and stay within your comfort zone than to face the fear of the unknown.

Certificate Intimidation. The idea that business is super complicated is an area best left to highly trained elite experts. If you don't have an Ivy League MBA or similar expensive and time-consuming credentials, who are you to think you know what to do.

Imposter Syndrome. The gnawing fears that you're inadequate and already in over your head. It's only a matter of time before you're exposed to be a total "fraud" and "phony."

We don't rise to our expectations; we fall to the level of our knowledge.

Here is the good news, everyone has these unfounded fears, and you can quickly put an end to them. All you need to do is learn a few simple concepts that will change how you think about the way business works.

Once you have conquered your fears, you can do anything!

No matter who you are or what you are trying to accomplish, you're about to discover a practical new way of looking at business startups and entrepreneurship that will help you spend less time worrying about your fears and more time doing things that make a difference.

Let's get started!

Who this course is for
  1. Anyone interested in learning a skillset that will make you more valuable at your job, help you start something on the side, or let you quit your job and start your own business.
