Today, we’re releasing BUS305: Small Business Management on our iTunes U channel. And that got us thinking: variations on the word “entrepreneur” show up 137 times.
But entrepreneurship doesn’t come easy, and it doesn’t come cheap.
Back in April, our trustee, Michael Saylor, shared some of his thoughts on getting started in business:
Compare that to this quote from a recent blog post at The New York Times:
— “Student Debt and the Crushing of the American Dream” (NYT “Opinionator”, 12 May 2013)
This goes to the heart of why we do what we do, and why Michael Saylor started the Saylor Foundation. It doesn’t mean that taking on debt is poison to business success, but increasingly no-debt and low-debt options exist, and they’re looking increasingly attractive. Our hope is that we can provide some of those skills that will allow you to take the resources you do have and put them to the greatest possible use.
If you’re a would-be entrepreneur with some time on your hands, you’ve got all the resources you need to learn Small Business Management and build up some of the confidence to blaze your own path in business.
