Hi, if you’ve known me some time, you know that I am always trying new business ideas; sometimes they work out, sometimes they don’t. Maybe it’s the same for other women business owners. I’ve had a very costly OJT over the years, I didn’t get an MBA, don’t know how to calculate ROI, usually, I just go with “my gut”. I often pride myself on saying I have a Ph.D. from the “School of Hard Knocks” in New York. I do know how to do some things, like marketing, B-2-B selling, writing books, creating training programs. But my business education has huge gaps in other important topics, like Strategic Planning, Financial Management, Legal Structures, etc. I often wished I could “catch up” on these subjects, somehow. But I’ve never gotten around to it.
Now I’ve partnered with an awesome businesswoman Lynita Mitchell Blackwell and publisher (of 5 magazines for women) to create BUSINESS CLASS, which we hope will address those needs of women business owners.
Facilitated by the same writers of the book Business Class: Your Guide to Starting, Running, & Growing Your Business, this course was created BY women, FOR women; these instructors are experts in their individual fields and eager to share their experience and knowledge with other women. Our facilitators are amazing and their bios are included in the “bios” section of the site.
