Starting a business removes the lid on your earning potential and opens up new possibilities. But is it the right move for you?
This course will help you to answer that question and also show you how you can use your job as a launchpad for your entrepreneurial dream without cheating on your employer or engaging in any unethical activity. And even if you don't have a job, you will learn everything you need to know about getting started on the path of entrepreneurship.
Essentially, entrepreneurship is a mindset. It's about thinking and acting in a way that seeks to solve problems and create innovative value. It's about developing the capacity to recognize opportunities and building the right systems to cash in on those opportunities in a way that creates value for everyone.
This course will show you exactly how to do this, and the pitfalls to avoid along the way.
Some of the areas addressed include:
- Right and wrong reasons to start a business
- How to choose your right-fit idea and check its viability
- Overcoming the funding barrier
- Five business ventures you can start this week
- Exploring the value chain of your business idea
You will also learn that starting a business is not an end in itself, it is a means to an end. Your goal is to first break free from your current limitations and get started. You can then grow or pivot.
