Course Description

Fire Your Boss!

What does it takes to work for yourself?

What type of specific skills or knowledge does it take to become an entrepreneur and fire your boss?

Have you ever had a great idea for a business and didn't create it because you didn't know whether you had what it takes to start your own company?

If you answered even one of these questions with anything remotely resembling a yes, then this course is definitely for you!

This course was designed with people in mind that:

  • Did not have the privilege of growing up in entrepreneurial households;
  • Did not attend a business school;
  • Do not have a background in business and still have the desire to become their own boss and want to know what it takes to do so.

In this course, you will learn:

  • What an Entrepreneur is and isn't
  • The Eight Entrepreneurial Essentials: Qualities that any entrepreneur needs to succeed
  • What it takes to work for yourself
  • How to successfully manage your time
  • How to ensure that you hold yourself accountable when you have no one else to report to
  • How to manage to not have your personal and business life interfere with another
  • How to identify if you have a great idea for a business
  • How to set yourself up for success
  • …and much more!

This course includes access to ten sections and over 90 minutes of videos and will continue to grow as more material is being added. Yes, you heard right. This course will grow in size.

Of course, as this course grows, the price will increase!!!

You can complete this course in a single evening but the course will help you more if the material is reviewed on more than on occasion and if you take the time to think about what you learn. The next step is to try implement what you have learned in your life right away.

The course is structured in ten sections and is broken down into smaller, “bite-sized" topics. This makes it possible to learn as much or as little as you want to in a single sitting. You will not lose your place in the course and will not be forced to stop in the middle of a lecture if you have to stop for some reason.

You could spend years of your life and thousands of dollars for courses, books, and other materials to learn what is covered in this one course.

For less than what you likely spend in a week at Starbucks!!!

This an evolving course! This course will be added to continuously throughout various intervals, to ensure that you can receive the biggest benefit possible!
