    1 Critical lesson for Udemy courses

    I appreciate the effort the author has put into compiling 21 lessons for entrepreneurs. They are all well documented in the PDF of Lecture 1. What I found was that subsequent lectures are just a video of the session he gave from which he distilled the lessons. That's where I lost interest. I came to this course to learn, and that fast. For that purpose the PDF is fully sufficient. I found I wasted my time and stopped watching in Lecture 7. However, if reading is not your thing you might enjoy the videos.

    Excellent course

    Great content and fun lectures.

    I found the video very informative

    I found this video not only informative but well executed for todays audiences. I myself am a 41 year old who is starting a business in the service space. I have no degree as I have dropped out twice for the main reasons you have stated but find that I have learned more in this two hour course than any class I have sat in. I strongly believe that these videos are not only helpful to those in my age group and educational level but truly pull directly what needs to be said which is well though out, consistent, goal driven actions create great entrepreneurs Drive Can Most Definitely Trump Paper When Execution Is the Only Game In Town

    Great material, Thank you Jason

    Very powerful, I took notes. I especially like, "The same energy it takes to start a college club or plan a big event is the same raw effort it will take to build a billion dollar business or change the world".
