"Great course. Focused on Part Time which is nice as other courses are about full time and I am not read for that. Want to make some money as a freelancer and part-time for now. Educational and Instructor is very motivational and encouraging as well. Highly recommend." --Barb L

Anyone can become an entrepreneur and fulfill their dreams or earn the money to fund their dreams. Unfortunately, entrepreneurship can seem real difficult, plus most people are not ready to give up the security of a full-time job. Nor should they have to.

The great thing about becoming a Part Time Entrepreneur is you do not have to quit your full-time job plus you can see if your ideas work and if you like what you are doing on the side that can later become a full time focus for you, if you want. Just need the education to avoid missteps and to set yourself up for success.

THIS COURSE WILL TEACH YOU HOW TO BECOME A SUCCESSFUL PART TIME ENTREPRENEUR
