Concise and experienced advice
We run two businesses, but much of the information and advice Stephen shared here was new to us. Stephen really gets to the heart and soul of the matter, by explaining not only ‘how’ to make a business successful, but by challenging you to ask yourself ‘what’ you are really looking for out of your business. Concise, engaging, and packed with information, this crash course is definitely worth your time.
Cut to the quick and exactly what you need to start your own business.
I could have saved myself thousands of dollars and six months of time had I taken this course first and avoided all my University business courses. Stephen's knowledge is spot on and to the point. He has a great ability to cut through the noise and get to the point telling you exactly what you need to know. I thoroughly enjoyed this course.
Taking Away the Fear of Starting Your Own Business
I have been involved with business at a local and personal level (although inexperienced) and at an upper level with a Fortune 500 company. I have personally seen a lot of what was discussed in this course, but I have never really had it put in terms that I could readily apply to my own entrepreneurial interests. I've signed up for free courses, asked business owners for advice, and looked at a multitude of businesses for a roadmap, and none of those methods provided me with the type of grasp on intuition that this course has provided. Stephen does a really great job of making the mumbo jumbo of business terminology, understandable and applicable. Fear of failure is a real thing, and oftentimes, that fear comes from not knowing what the second step may be, or the third, or the fourth. After viewing this course, I now know what my next steps are, and I feel that I have a grasp on the fundamentals that will be a major advantage when I do get to a place where my business path may be unclear. Almost like a business path GPS that I can consult when lost. I highly recommend this course, and I look forward to taking on Stephen's challenge at the end of the course. I feel prepared, a little more sure, and a lot more excited for the rewards that come with owning your own business.
