Ghostbusters: Starting Your Own Business
This is a fun look at what it takes to start and run your own business, using the original "Ghostbusters" as a model to being one's own boss.
Who ya gonna call?! That's a good question...where should someone start if they want to go into business for themselves?

*NOTE* This is not meant to be a truly comprehensive course on actually starting a business, but rather a fun observation and analysis of what we can learn from the Ghostbusters in terms of what one should consider when attempting to do so. Many of the steps are not dissimilar to what I do as a tutor and contract teacher—marketing to maintain interest, following certain regulations, paperwork, start up money, etc. My Master's Degree is in Education; I have taught high school English and various electives, including AP English: Language & Composition and The Structure & Analysis of Film since 2008. Additionally I have worked on committees to ensure curriculum is up-to-date and meaningful, have mentored students during high school & as they prepare for college and/or the workforce, and have offered a variety of online classes since 2021.
A notebook and pen/pencil if desired, but not required. An electronic handout will be provided.
