A short introduction to what it takes to be a successful business owner.
This course is offered at no cost to aspiring business owners. It takes the form of an interview where, if you can imagine, our founder is asking you the questions and encouraging you to write your answers.
No one will see the answers unless you choose to share them, but on completion, you’ll have a clear picture of your strengths, the skills you’ll need to become a successful business owner, and also the barriers and concerns you have in starting your business.
Along with the interview, we have a few questions on skills you can rate yourself on.
Together, the answers you give and the benchmarking of the questions will form a very useful tool for you in becoming a business owner.
