Easy and not as intimidating as I feared. I am not a financial person, but I found these insights to be very helpful in understanding those who are, and being able to appreciate my family's business.
I really enjoyed this class. It has given me serious motivation to start my own company. I liked being able to see an overview of the steps I need to take to start my business off on the right foot.

It tried its best to provide you with general insights and overview about the most important business aspects for you to be able to identify what items are in your plans that need redrawing or rethinking or detailing, or which items have you overlooked and need planning, plus the skills you need to look at, further develop and enhance. I've learned alot in a short amount of time and it got me really thinking about things I haven't thought about yet. I am more confident now in creating a roadmap for myself with clearer view of the short term, medium term, and long term plans and goals. Keep up the great work! And thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.
I am considering a business in technical consulting as an individual, so certain aspects of this course were not applicable to my needs, but I found others very useful, including those regarding incorporation and tracking the business performance. Also the "bricks and clicks" discussion in the course provided good insight into areas I had not considered. The instructor was easy to follow, informative and a good presenter. While I believe the course introduction could use a small amount of improvement, my only issue with the course is that the notes are in the wrong order on the site and it was not always obvious how to find them prior to the test.

It's very brief and to the point. The course is absolutely great for beginners. I think it would be a lot better with more visuals. Images and videos of what he's lecturing on can be helpful. I think that's what the course lacked and it's so easy for the mind to drift off as the lecturer is speaking. Also, the videos are too long. It's hard to watch through 12 min videos in one sitting.
Overall, I think the course was very helpful and organized. The info provided is great. I just wish a professional graphic designer was hired to do the visuals for the lectures.

This course is great if you're just looking for a general overview about Entrepreneurship. I enjoyed learning about what things to expect as an entrepreneur as well as the do's and dont's for running your own business. It was really helpful to learn from someone who has real life experience as an entrepreneur.

I enjoyed the lectures because they really change mindset and give new ways of thinking. But I'd like to have more complex practice assignments. The quizzes in the course are too easy to pass. So it would be great to have exercises that allow to apply new knowldge.

It is a good course for those who want to be a entrepreneur but don't really know what that means. The course gives a lot to think about and consider when opening a business. It is also a quick and easy to learn 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.

Videos were a little slow. I would prefer more slides and factual information to memorize and then videos as an option to hear opinion and real time experience.

It was an interesting and enjoyable course. However content maybe added to it. Such as how to deal with failures and how to re invest money.
By Jeff R•
Overall very useful for anyone looking to start or invest in a business. Can be done quickly but still had enough detail to make it useful.

Good course, interesting information, but tests were not always clear for me (could not clear understand what it is asking about).

The lecture is short but the presenter has good experiences to share with us. Module 4 is the essential of whole lecture.
