Young entrepreneurs will spend 9-weeks learning how to plan a small business, then present their business ideas at our 'Entrepreneur Fair'! We cover marketing, contracts, sales, taxes, and more!

Class experience

US Grade 7 - 10
Students will learn the practical and legal side of starting a business, along with the creative aspects of market research, branding, and marketing. The course is designed to give students a more realistic idea of what it takes to launch a small business. 
I hold both bachelors and masters degrees in legal studies, worked as a business litigation paralegal for 3+ years, and spent years as a freelance ghostwriter writing educational marketing content and books for attorneys, victims rights advocates, and serial entrepreneurs. I've also owned several small businesses of my own, spanning nearly 10 years. Much of the material provided in this course is based on one of the ghostwritten books, as well as my experience in business and law. Locally, I host this same 10-week course for middle and high school students. I LOVE to help build the next generation of entrepreneurs and creators!! 
Homework Offered
Weekly homework assignments will be based on the lesson. As each learners business concept will be different, timeframes will vary.
