Questions

I'm launching a business this fall and there is a lot to do, but I'm thinking about taking a quick business class as well. While I'm great at learning by doing, I do appreciate formal classroom education. Is it worth it to take the course? As a new entrepreneur and first time business owner, how do you learn?

There are a lot of great resources about running a business on trusted sites like Inc.com, the Small Business Administration, and countless (countless) other advisors and experts publishing their advice for free.

Additionally, udemy.com is PACKED with fantastic content available for $19 per course if you sign up on one of their deals.

Another source of information is to approach a business mentor, someone who has "been there, done that" and made all the mistakes along the way. I have a blog post that covers how to approach a mentor (LINK: ).

Running a business is often made more complicated than it actually is.

Find a need.
Talk to prospective customers.
Listen.
Fill the need.
Rise & repeat.

I'm happy to help more, just reserve some time here on Clarity and we can get your well on your way to launching your first successful business. =)
