Welcome to Airtable for Entrepreneurs! Do you own a business? Do you struggle keeping all the records and data together and organized?

This course is for you! I'll walk you through step by step, from setting up your account to having a full fledged database that can run a small business.

You need to take this course because Airtable is the most flexible and responsive database program around right now. With limited technical skill,  you can avoid thousands of dollars buying a clunky and expensive system. And you'll have the control to do what YOU want. Neat, huh?

This course will only take a couple of hours to complete, but you can reference it whenever you need a refresher!

I can't wait to work through this course with you!

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is great for entrepreneurs, corporate workers, or anyone who has struggled to make traditional spreadsheets work for their business data
  • You should NOT take this course if your company does not allow you to use outside tools, even if they would make your company 10x more efficient :)
