Generation Self Employed
Several years ago, the University of Phoenix issued a statement in which they stated that “only a quarter (25 percent) of working adults say college education today effectively prepares students for employment in the workforce.” Why are schools missing the mark with what they are teaching? Colleges are teaching students skills they would use if they went out and got a job working for someone else when the onslaught of what some are calling the “part-time economy” has students questioning the value of a traditional four-year degree. Students take courses from a variety of disciplines, but no one has shown them how to put this complex jigsaw puzzle together if their intention is to start their own company. Through the courses on this page, I want to introduce you to Generation Self Employed where I will help you simplify the complexity of starting your own business.
Working with Mr. Scott Badger, the owner of a homeschool cooperative called Northpoint Classes, I designed a course on entrepreneurship for high school students. Using that experience as a foundation, I created the series of five courses on this page.
Join me as I use a Story-Centric teaching model applied to the book publishing industry to provide “learn by doing” entrepreneurship courses in an online, on-demand format.
In Why Have a Business, you’ll learn that to be a successful entrepreneur, know WHY you want to have a business in the first place. To succeed, find your passion.
Employees do what they’re told. Owners decide what to do. Understanding Yourself as an Entrepreneur teaches you to develop an ownership mindset.
Servant Salesmanship teaches you to serve, not just sell your customers,. By taking this course, you’ll learn to develop a sales process from the initial call to closing the sale.
Your Business By the Numbers provides students with hands on experience in tracking sales, monitoring costs, and make money: Profit = Total Revenue-Total Cost
Creating Your Business Strategy equips students with the skills they need to create a business plan for a business of their choosing. Remember: Failure to Plan Means You Plan to Fail
