Why this business course is so unique
There is a very unique story behind this course. I originally created the Problemio business apps which now have over 500,000 entrepreneurs who downloaded the apps. On the apps, entrepreneurs are able to ask business questions. I took all the questions that were ever asked on the apps, and summed them up into the issues covered in this course. That means that the issues covered in the course come from entrepreneurs just like yourself!
So if you are starting a business, this is a great way to guarantee that the material in the course will be very relevant to the things you are going through now, or things you will be going through soon.
