To succeed in small business, you need great ideas, an entrepreneurial spirit, and competitive products or services. Entrepreneurs also require a good accounting system like QuickBooks and solid Microsoft Office Product Skills. This program covers it all. 

**Please Note: Microsoft Office 2013 is available upon request.

Start Your Own Business

Have you ever eaten a Mrs. Fields cookie? Used a MacBook? Listed to a podcast? Entrepreneurs brought these products to your world. People that start their own businesses and work for themselves are called entrepreneurs. For an entrepreneur the sky is the limit as far as earnings and potential success. An entrepreneur is someone who has recognized an opportunity to start a business that other people may not have noticed. Entrepreneurs can shape and create an opportunity where others see little or nothing -- or see it too early or too late. Our Start Your Own Business course will help you create the business you want. Throughout this course you will be working on your business plan and creating a quick comprehensive overview of the elements you want in your new business.

Prerequisite: None

 

QuickBooks® Pro

To succeed in small business, you need great ideas, an entrepreneurial spirit, and competitive products or services. And one other thing: a good accounting system like QuickBooks. With our course you will learn how to track your sales and expenses all in one place and get reliable records for tax time. This QuickBooks course shows you how to use this popular business finance program to gain a clear view of your finances and keep your business in the black. Our course will help you make your bookkeeping workflow smoother and faster. Students will receive step-by-step instructions on how and when to use specific features, along with basic accounting advice to guide you through the learning process of QuickBooks 2019.

NOTE: This course does NOT include the QuickBooks program itself. Students will need to have QuickBooks 2019 already installed on their computers.

Prerequisite: None

 

Leadership & Goal Attainment

Looking for ways to make your company great, motivate your employees, and grow profits? Then Leadership & Goal Attainment is the course for you. In the first part of this course you will learn how relational leadership is not just a theory or a buzzword, but a way of managing through relationship-building to bring out the very best in one's employees. You will see how some executives succeeded where others failed and take advantage of those lessons of success to create your own.

Why do some genius-level leaders seem to drain intelligence and performance out of the people around them, while others stimulate, motivate, and get so much more out of their work associates? The second part of this course uses Liz Wiseman’s book to label the former group, people who need to be the smartest person in the room, as diminishers, while the latter are multipliers, people who use their smarts to stimulate and enhance the creativity of the group. This section of the course identifies what is considered the five most important disciplines that help managers to think and act more like multipliers, bringing people together, and giving others on the team more freedom, power, and responsibility, which ultimately generates self-worth and satisfaction. 

The third part of this Leadership & Goal Attainment course will help you with setting and achieving your goals. While it can be difficult to set truly meaningful and motivational goals, it is one of the most essential steps to business success. Even more importantly, setting, working toward and achieving measurable goals is how we all grow personally while contributing to organizational success.

Prerequisite: None
