TOP REVIEWS FROM ESSENTIALS OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP: THINKING & ACTION
I enjoyed learning all the basic one needs to be guided by when starting your own business. It was indeed a privilege to be able to do this course.
Good high level overview for someone considering entrepreneurship or trying to map out what skills they need to prioritize. If you're already in the game -- skip it, too basic.
The course is practical enough in terms of short yet comprehensive course presentations. However, more reading materials will increase the learning available for students in class.
A good overall explanation about the subject but I did expect deeper and more practical examples to be discussed. In general I recommend the course.
