I really enjoyed this class and feel like I learned a LOT. I especially enjoyed creating my pitch deck as we progressed through the course. This made it seem so much less overwhelming and enjoyable.

It was very helpful. The only reason I did not give it a 5 star rating was that it is solely focused on American market and resources in USA and I live in Canada. Over all great info.

I recently completed an online course on launching an online business, and I must say it was incredibly beneficial. The course provided me with a wealth of knowledge and valuable insights. The quizzes, though not overly difficult, were a great way to reinforce the material and test my understanding. The practical exercises and activities were especially valuable, as they allowed me to apply what I learned and develop a solid plan for my online business. I gained valuable insights into how to sustain and grow my business effectively. Overall, I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to start their own online business. It's a comprehensive and practical resource that equips you with the necessary tools and knowledge for success.

The information provided is too basic and not in depth. The expectation that one can go from thinking about domain name to launch to KPIs and PR in this timeframe is ludicrous. I wanted specific comparisons of web design tools and platforms, specific opinions about social media marketing channels, but there were no details, no comparisons. This course is not useful. Neither the presenter nor the other contributors seem to have any expertise to offer beyond that of their own single experience.

The instructor is excellent and very clear. The course is set up in a logical order and to the point. I have years of experience with running a business, but needed to brush off some online skills. The Powerpoint set up is good and useful even if I don't personally like Powerpoint.

The only negative I found was the video clips with the girls chatting about their businesses. I could not listen to them because it was all mumbo jumbo and every other word was "like" and "you know" and uhmm without any substance. It would be nice if people would speak clearly with a real message if they are included in a course.

The many guest speakers sharing their own experiences at all stages of building their businesses was insightful. If you fill in the templates following the advice in this course, by the time you finish it, you will have an up and running online business! I'm still undecided on certain key components of my upcoming business, but will reference the handouts from this course as I continue researching and refining my business model. Can't wait to launch. I've recommended this course to two people already!

This was an excellent course. It talked about the what and why, and most helpful was the how. The provided resources to use for my own business are and will continue to be used as a regular part of managing the business. I also appreciated the real-life examples.
