It really has anchored the desire to start my own business, it has inspired me to do something of my own. It has helped me understand what I need in order to know where to start. It has clarified the steps to take to bring me where I want to be. I particularly love the live sessions; it has made me feel like we're a real group and the teacher gets to answer our questions directly. The teacher also interacts with us as he teaches and it makes it easier to stay focused. It was my first course with Shaw Academy and I am pleased!
The classes have been quite practical and down-to-earth. I think I have been equipped with tools for my business. But more importantly is the fact that the knowledge gained here is applicable to other areas of life.
I was first interested because I am currently trying to build an online business as well as work full time, I was feeling very overwhelmed and wanted to see if there was a way of making better use of my time. From the very beginning, Kevin Redmond spoke to us in plain English without the use of jargon which I was very grateful for as I have had no formal business training. After watching each webinar, I started to feel a lot calmer and by module 3 I began to start enjoying the process of running a business again as I felt less isolated and began to understand that perhaps others on the course were in the same boat as myself. The most interesting things I have learnt so far are how to calculate the costings, the psychology of selling and how to be more efficient with the use of social media.
I did not know what to expect when enrolling, but quickly started looking forward to my Monday and Wednesday evenings. I liked the real world content and subsequent qualification by either real life experience or example.
