This class starts with a brief overview of the elements of a business plan and dives quickly into brainstorming. Each learner can bring questions to class or their business idea/product and get feedback or suggested resources, or they can come without questions and learn from the conversation! (Students can also submit questions via private chat and I can read them anonymously.) Note: This class will not assist learners in creating a business plan - it's a jump start conversation! I do...
This class is taught in English.
Students will learn about the underpinnings of a business plan, helping them hone in on what they need to work on. Students will practice participating in brainstorming sessions - one of the great joys of business life.
I have had a small business for 12+ years, in fact, I have run small businesses in vintage goods, handmade jewelry, craft events, business workshops, and business consulting. I have 25+ years of work experience in food service, marketing, non-profit work, environmental policy, urban planning, writing, and much more! I have worked with young folks on business topics for around 5 years, and have taught adult business workshops for the same amount of time. I have taught social media marketing and other business topics to thousands of learners.
There is no homework for this class, although additional resources may be offered.
Highly recommend: Pen/pencil and paper for jotting down notes and questions. Optional: You can (optionally) prep for this class by preparing some notes on your business or entrepreneurial idea, as well as questions. You can either bring questions to class, submit them directly to the teacher while on Zoom, or send the questions in advance (they will be asked anonymously.) If you do send questions in advance, please send them no later than 30 min prior to class start! Thank you.
There is no assessment for this class.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We may discuss utilizing social media to promote your business, as well as more traditional methods of marketing like talking to friends or having a website. All of these are discussed with the preface that they need parental supervision and encourage parental involvement/monitoring for safety. If you have any questions about this, please reach out!
I do not generally use off-platform resources or share my screen, although there may be exceptions.
