Helping You Start and Grow Your Own Business
BUSINESS OWNERS NEED advisers, coaches and other supportive people around them to make their business a success, whether a new venture or an existing business.
When you do our online business training courses, you will have a ready-made support network. Our online training courses have been developed by people who actually do run businesses and work successfully for themselves. These businesses are both bricks and mortar (offline) and online businesses.
Therefore our courses draw on real-life case studies and scenarios that are relevant and not purely theoretical. You can be confident that the work, research and learning you do in our Business Course will lead to new strategies to help you grow and manage the various aspects of your business — in the real world.
Our Course Contributors and Coaches
Our courses contributors and coaches include chartered accountants, writers, sales coaches and successful business owners. These people have contributed to the small business course with their own real life scenarios and examples.
Most of our support team have completed the business course or operate their own independent businesses. These people are available to help you succeed with your goals, keep you on track to achieve your goals or simply help you navigate around the course and learning management system.
They can also assist you with tips on where you can find relevant information to help you in your business, give advice on your product and service costings and whether your expectations are justified. Our coaching is done via telephone and will keep you on track and help you create a realistic plan that results in profits.
