10 Online Business Classes for Entrepreneurs

- Advertisement -

For every business, there was a person who was an entrepreneur who came up with the business idea, and either worked by themself or with others to create a final business. KMart, Amazon, and the Fairgo login, all started from an entrepreneur’s idea.

An entrepreneur is a driven and innovative individual who takes calculated risks to create and grow a successful business venture. This enterprising individual possesses a unique combination of vision, creativity, and determination to identify opportunities and turn them into profitable ventures.

Entrepreneurs are driven by a passion for their ideas and possess the ability to think outside the box, challenging conventional norms and approaches. They embrace uncertainty and are willing to face the challenges and setbacks that come with starting and managing a business. Through their relentless pursuit of success, entrepreneurs not only create value for themselves but also contribute to the overall growth and development of the economy.

Critical business skills for success from Wondrium

Characteristics of Successful Entrepreneurs

Critical Business Skills for Success is a comprehensive guide to the five disciplines-strategy, operations, finance and accounting, organizational behavior, and marketing-that everyone needs to master in today’s marketplace. Bringing the MBA experience to you, this authoritative course demystifies the secrets of business and provides insights to help you achieve your goals.

In some episodes, a specific company will look at in-depth, for example, Blockbuster, Netflix, Trader Joe’s, video game companies, social media companies, NutraSweet, etc. It is a completely different focus than the above two courses that focus on the beginning phases of starting a new business.

This is a single 30-minute episode that talks about business etiquette for the virtual world, Zoom, Google Meets, etc.

Games people play Game theory in Life, business, and Beyond from Wondrium

This course is more of a psychology course, but then business involves dealing with people. Business is also strategy, and that is where Game Theory and odds of chance come into play.

Freelancing 101: Turning your Side Hustle into Cash from Wondrium

This class will empower you to take your skills and monetize them as a freelancer. After this class, you will be able to identify competitors, price your services, and develop skills to network so that you can land that next deal.

This is a short 11-episode series that talks about the same major topics as the Entrepreneurial Toolkit, but it has a few additional lectures that are important for the freelancer.

  • Develop your freelance network.
  • Analyze your market value (so you know your worth).
  • Determine your hourly rate.
  • Estimate your time commitment (If you already have two small projects, do you have enough time to take on a third project.).
  • Hourly vs. project rate.
  • When to raise your rates.
  • Negotiating your value.
  • When to say yes and when to say no to a project.

About determining your hourly rate. As an employee, you get paid a base salary plus benefits. If the company does well, you also get bonuses and stock options (sometimes). You might also get other perks like a company car or free public transportation. Maybe you get a cell phone plan. Most companies provide paid days off, vacation time, sick time, their share of taxes, health insurance, dental insurance, life insurance, etc. Those “little things” add up. As a freelancer, a “salary” that may sound great at first may turn out to be not so great when you factor in all of this other stuff.

The Art of Critical Decision Making
