This class is a basic overview of business. This is the first of five classes included in the business course. Business Basics include: business definitions; a complete overview of business types (Sole-proprietor, LLP, LLC, Corporations...); complete instruction in the development of business documents such as business plans, marketing plans, and more; instructions on performing business analysis such as SWOT and financials; and a brief overview of business financials/accounting, and marketing. The next set of classes cover: Business Finance/Accounting; Marketing; Business Funding; and Global/Corporate Business. The complete course will provide knowledge on all business needs.

Having nearly 20 years of business ownership and executive experience, holding a PhD in Business Management and Finance/Accounting, and having taught Business, Business Negotiations, Accounting I and II, Business Finance, Marketing, and more with ITT Technical Institute gives me the privilege of passing my knowledge on to others.

Doctor in Business, Business Professional and Consultant.

I started my business career in 1999 with my first business, "Tropical Smoothie" at age 19, while attending college for business and finance. Over the past 18 years I have owned and operated seven different successful businesses, three of which I still own and operate; the other four I sold at highly successful levels. I have completed my Associate, Bachelor, Master, and PhD in Business and Finance. With eight years educational knowledge and 18 years business experience I have helped hundreds of businesses in analysis and structure to success; helped dozens of businesses obtain funding for operations and start-ups; and redesigned countless businesses who were in bad situations and turned them into successful businesses. I have worked as an Instructor of Business, Business Negotiation, Business systems, Marketing I and II, Accounting I and II, and Business finance for ITT Technical Institute, South College, and AIU. Recently I have published the first book in a series of business guide books, "A Guide to Small Business and SBA Funding"; have a second of the series, "A Guide to Small Business and Accounting" currently in the publication process; and three more in line for publication: "A Guide to Small Business and Marketing", "A Guide to Small Business and Law", and "A Guide to Small Business in General". I also have two other books nearly completed and ready for publication: "A Guide to Corporations and Global Business" and "The Next American Revolution".
