Course Description

Ever wanted to start your own business but confused about where to start? Are you trying to learn how to run a successful business? Are you a small business owner who is looking to take your business to the next level with proven marketing ideas, which cost nothing, to try out and are risk free?

Not knowing how to run a successful business can hurt you. The truth is that over 90% of businesses fail in the first 5 years. They fail due to cash flow issues and they have no cash because they have too few clients and orders. The remaining 5% of businesses fail in the next 5 years because the owner is literally exhausted, they either don't know how to delegate or do it the wrong way (the clue is the word 'systems').

Million Dollar Company is designed for start-ups or small business owners who want to run a successful business which works whether they are there or not. A business they could either sell in the future or have other people run for them. I have applied all the principles in this course to build three companies, one of which I sold in 2008 to a friend and when he bought it, the entire business was running on auto-pilot for him (and still is)!

This course will teach you everything you need to know to grow a successful business, which generates a predictable monthly income but bothers you, as little as possible.

Have Fun.

Paul Browning

Instructor Biography

Paul Browning, Cisco Engineer and Internet Entrepreneur

I worked in the police in the UK for 12 years as a patrol officer and detective. While I was in the job I helped teach the new e-mail system to other officers. I took a few IT exams and then left for a career in IT in June 2000.

I took a few more exams with vendors such as Cisco and Microsoft and got a job working for Cisco for two years. I then started an IT training company teaching Cisco and computer networking courses. I built the business until it had several offices in the UK and then sold it.

I now run a publishing business and several websites teaching IT related subjects. I've learned how to build a successful company and how to make it in the world of IT. I hope what I've learned helps you too.
