Being an Entrepreneur and Business Owner demand very different skills then being an Employee. This class teaches you the core skills required to navigate and be successful in your own business, based on more than 15 years of business coaching by Martin Brossman and more than 20 years of entrepreneurship by Dan Scala. Learn the key mistake to make that can lose you time and money. You will understand  how to effectively manage: time, money, priorities and customers to maximize results. This is useful for both the person about to start a business and one that has been in business long enough to say “I wish they had told me how…”.
