About Small Business

If you are an entrepreneur who needs a little help with the practical details involved in running your own business, a course in small business management will give you the skills to ensure that you run a smooth, efficient operation and are able to manage the necessary administration. Starting your own business can be a risk, but with the help of our online courses you can give yourself the best chance of a successful startup.

A good business starts with a strong business plan, and our courses will teach you how to create a strategic plan for your small business (defined as 20 or less employees). From there you will learn how to plan small business finances, market your business, implement customer service strategies and develop work priorities. You will also be able to meet the legal and risk management requirements of your small business to ensure that there aren’t any nasty surprises along the road to success.

You never know where your small business can take you with the right approach. Just look at Carolyn Creswell, who bought the struggling muesli-making business she used to work for and turned it into the highly successful brand, Carman’s Fine Foods. Her success story has also been the inspiration for the television startup show, Recipe to Riches.
