About this course:

A majority of businesses fail within the first two years, and a significant percentage of the initial survivors don't last much longer. There are many reasons for this, including inexperienced management, lack of sufficient capital, failure to do proper marketing, and a lack of financial competency. The bottom line is that most managers don't know how to properly systematize, structure, and manage their businesses. They don't know because they're not aware of where or how to find this information. This course is designed to teach students how to structure properly, systematize, and manage a business of any size or type, service or product, and in any industry.
