“Join this dynamic, motivational business plan class created to encourage and prepare new and existing entrepreneurs with the information they will need to start, sustain and expand their business.” Join the virtual class and learn with other entrepreneurs!
How it works: This is an intensive course. The objective is for you to have a complete business plan at the end. New sessions open on Monday each week including a live Zoom meeting at 6:30 pm ET, and you will be assigned videos, readings, and work for you to complete during the week – on your own – at times that are best for you. If you are not able to be a part of the live meeting each week, there will be a recording available. Each week’s work builds your skills and helps you collect and organize all of the information you need to complete the business plan.
