Description

My name is Nasser Lukmani and I have been in business all my life. In this course, I will share with you my valuable secrets and nuggets which I have learnt over the years. I will force you to think and make important business decisions so you may succeed.  I will explain the acquisition process, the pitfalls and what you need to know.

The course will parallel a Case Study using an actual acquisition made by The Sardars memorialized in two interviews with them. One soon after the purchase and the second, a few months later to capture their lessons learned.

Who this course is for:
  • Only students who truly desire to be in their own business should consider this course. Those who don't have business acumen, will not benefit from the course and will only give it a low rating due to lack of understanding.
