It never hurts to avoid some of the trials and tribulations of owning a small business, now it’s even easier with online tools and resources. TV Shows and movies really make you believe that being a small business or entrepreneur is easy and that customers will just coming running to you. However in real life, it is nothing like that and you are always learning.
Summer school for small business is now in session!
As entrepreneurs or a small business, you are constantly learning things regarding your day to day business activities. Things like – shipping, invoices or social media all on through how to scale your company website back end design. One thing I am adamant about is learning and education.
When I graduated from college, entrepreneurship was not a degree you could earn or even something really discussed on Southern University’s campus. However now it’s a different story across the globe. But don’t fret, I’m not asking you to enroll in your local college. Instead Summer school is in session with Skillshare.
Skillshare is AMAZEBALLS! Literally I could sit all day taking classes and learning new stuff. They have courses on design, WordPress, marketing, SEO and much more. Here are some great courses you can take this summer to brush up on a variety of skills:
